by Damh the
Damh is a musical storyteller who works within the world of myth that cannot be proved; where the Faerie really do dance on Midsummer's Eve, where the trees talk, and the Hollow Hills take you into the realms of Annwn. Where the Goddess rides her horse, guiding you to magic, and the Horned God of old calls us from the shadows of the Greenwood. [source]
The answer to Ruthie's question about the horse-lady from the Mabinogion is, of course, Rhiannon and the winner is Isabella from Germany. She will receive a signed copy of Damh's latest album.

We first performed at
Herstmonceux medieval Festival UK in 2001 with some other local
musicians. We met lots of interesting people, and quickly
developed a passion for re-enacting as Medieval
In 2003 we formed Portcullis, and Jason began to put our CD together, which was released in 2004.
Competition No.2 - The Book of Kells
Our second competition is about the Book of Kells and the prize is a copy of Aiden Meehan's Celtic Design: A Beginner's Manual.
Dance With Me
by Jenna Greene
"Her ethereal music is inspired by Celtic lore and nature myth. She believes both nature and music are powerful healers. Fused together, her music will take you on a journey to sacred groves, standing stones and places of beauty within yourself."
Dance With Me: is a light-hearted jig about not taking life too seriously. I wrote this song after having a very comical argument with my husband Doug who always complained that I didn’t write enough upbeat songs. I had always wanted to write an Irish drinking song. This song, while having the spirit of a drinking song, has no beer consumption at all so we lovingly refer to it as my “non-alcoholic drinking song”.
