With the new month coming up, so is a new Monthly Marker.
Watch to see Alex tell a bit about the song and the good times ahead and check out Berit’s part in it! 🙂
We have a new Monthly Marker!
I think we all know by now that starting a new month also means that we have a new Monthly Marker! We use these markers not only to highlight bands and artists that we love, but we also tend to combine it with a festival that we will be attending during that month, and so it should come as no surprise that for this months Marker we looked at the bands that will play at
Festival – Mediaval
Now, there are several bands that play there that are just too far outside of our format, and even more bands that we haven’t been in contact yet, so we just don’t have their music…yet. But one band really jumped out at us, and that is
Danceperados Of Ireland
! Their blend of emotional music and high energy “danceables” makes us here at
very happy, and so we are proud to announce that we chose one of their songs as our feature track this September! The song we chose, from their 2016 album ‘Life, Love and Lore of the Irish Travellers’, not only radiates happiness in its very danceable, upbeat sound, but the title of the track immediately reminded us of the feeling that we all know and live from festivals. So please enjoy ‘Session at the Campfire’ with us five to six times a day throughout the whole month, and we hope to see you all at
, either in person or online!
NEW MONTHLY MARKER
As we start the second half of the year it’s also time to introduce the new Monthly Marker! We’re very much looking forward to meeting our friends of
at the end of this month, so together with the organisation of this festival we chose one of their songs for the month of July!
We chose ‘Never Walk Alone’ which was released as a single in 2018 and is of course a part of Greenrose Faire’s latest album ‘Riders In The Night’. This upbeat folky dancing song will have you up and about, jumping and spinning in no time, so put on your dancing shoes (or go barefoot with us) and let’s hop our way towards
If you like the song and want more, you can find all of Greenrose Faire’s music on all worldwide streaming platforms, so there’s no reason not to sing along when you finally get to see them on stage!
MONTHLY MARKER TIME!
Do you remember that we told you about Rosanne’s talent and hard work providing us with custom banners for each upcoming festival? Sure you do, we told you that yesterday! Well, here’s another prime example of that, our new banner that will fly high above our Facebook page in the two weeks leading up to:
! Keep a close eye on our page as we will share more information on this awesome festival in the coming time.
But, the reason for this post is of course to announce our new Monthly Marker, and this time YOU were able to choose the song! Several weeks ago Alex joined
in his weekly livestream, and together they opened up a poll so that you could pick the song from
Rapalje Celtic Folk Music
‘s latest album “Scotland’s Story” for us to play as Monthly Marker, and also for Rapalje to release as their first single onto all major online platforms. And the choice you made? Drumroll please……”The Strayaway Child”!
This song will be playing five to six times a day, all through the month of June, enjoy! And remember, we will be at Zomerfolk in two weeks time, with some of those one of a kind collectables in the form of buttons. So as always, come join the party over there, and trade a hug for a beautiful new button!
The real Monthly Marker
OK, so yesterday’s Monthly Marker announcement was a bit of a joke, obviously. It was the first of April, after all. But we do have a new Monthly Marker for you, replacing
‘s ‘Black Is The Colour’. And ‘new’ is the key word this month!
You see, this is the month of
and we wanted you all to have a little something to get in the right mood. And what could be better for that than a nice balfolk dance, a cercle in this case. All through April you can hear
Wouter en de Draak
‘s ‘New Horizons, New Adventures’ five to six times a day, so you will have no excuse not to dance when they play this song at
Kasteel de Haar
during the wonderful weekend that is Elfia!
And…one and two and three and turn, and one and two and three and four….
