As promised, we bring you a special Live in the Livingroom session, straight from the home of Guinevere!
All of us know Rob mainly as a percussionist, bringing the base line rhythms for Omnia and ThunderCrow, but on his musical journey he has discovered the beauty of the Guda drum, and has now released his own solo album “Home” centered around this atmospheric marvel of an instrument.
Join us as we take you along on this journey and float away with us on the beautiful sounds of Rob and Guinevere. As always, feel free to ask anything and everything you’ve always wanted to know and we’ll try to work your questions into the interview!

MONTHLY MARKER: Imbue – Mirie it is when sumer ilast
As we say goodbye and a heartfelt thank you to
for brightening up September with her beautiful song Memento we move into October, which is definately the beginning of the darker days of the year. So what could be more fitting than a song about the harshness of winter?
Mirie it is when sumer ilast is (one of) the oldest secular song(s) ever written in English (though we may have some difficulty reading it, used to a more modern version of the language as we are) and it is about the harshness of the darker part of the year as compared to summer.
This version was recorded as a single by our friends of
and released only last week (though also performed during their Live in the Livingroom event with CeltCast), so we are very proud and happy to be able to feature it five to six times a day throughout the month, especially since the Monthly Marker of course already has quite a connection with Imbue. Ever since the first Monthly Marker, in January of 2015 (tempus fugit, anyone?) the song has been preceded by a very special jingle, written and recorded by none other than…Imbue! So in a way we have come full circle now.
