Monthly Marker March 2016: Shantalla

Cover: Shantalla-A Band of Gold

It’s that time again, when we move from one month into the next, and that also means that we get to highlight a new track for a month! And this month we’re not lying when we say it’s a NEW track!

Our friends of Shantalla have only recently released a brand new track and upon hearing it we quickly decided that A Band of Gold was to be our main feature for March. This song, originally written by Maurice McGrath, is a tragic lovestory about a couple that can’t get married because the man isn’t wealthy enough and the woman’s father will not allow it. It is played in a style that is not only what we would expect from a Folk group like Shantalla, but also in a way that immediately makes it a traditional!

Enjoy this track five or six times a day all through March, we know we will! 🙂

Monthly Marker February 2016: Huldreslåt

Cover: Huldreslåt-Vallfärd och Viljevandring

With a new month comes a new focal point in our stream, the new Monthly Marker. In January we enjoyed Omnia’s Uvil Uvil, taken from their latest album Naked Harp of course, but this February will be brightened by the awesome track Böl Olles Schottis, of Argentina based Huldreslåt! This track captured our attention the first moment we heard it, and it still continues to move us every time! (No really, I probably look like an idiot, dancing like crazy in my car every time this song comes on 😉 )

We hope it will bring as much happiness to your day as it does to ours! Happy February everyone!

Monthly Marker January 2016: OMNIA

Cover: OMNIA-Naked Harp

Whoops! With all the commotion having to do with starting a new give away we completely forgot to mention something yesterday…

A new year, but also a new month, so that also means: a new MONTHLY MARKER!!!
For our latest MM we asked for your help to choose a track from OMNIA’s album “Naked Harp”, and we sure got it! So all throughout this month keep your ears open for OMNIA’s Uvil Uvil, which will be played five to six times a day!

Monthly Marker December 2015: Elvya

Cover: Elvya-Untold Stories

MONTHLY MARKER TIME!
As we have moved into December it is time to change our Monthly Marker again. The avid listener may have already noticed the new track 😉

This month we have chosen the amazing song Gover Si Vena by Elvya Dulcimer, and we’re quite certain you’ll enjoy it as much as we do!

The song, of which there was an official video released recently, has some very deep layers to it, both musically as well as in the lyrics. As it is written in Elvyan, Liesbeth’s own language, it will be a bit hard for most people to understand, but if you check out the video we’ve linked below you’ll find a complete transcript, as well as a translation in the information box.
We hope that you can experience the power and emotion in this song as deeply as we have, and we thank Elvya for providing such a beautiful Monthly Marker.

Monthly Marker November 2015: Gilead

Cover: Gilead-Thousand Times

INTRODUCING: Gilead
(Which is also our new MONTHLY MARKER)

Playing medieval folk, but with a massive twist, these seven musicians definitely surprised the CeltCast crew when they first contacted us. Their (very high quality) album “Thousand Times” contains many well known classics from medieval days, but the way in which they play them turns the songs into something entirely different! Hailing from Siberia, an area of the world that most people associate with icy cold winters, they really do know how to turn up the heat!!

As mentioned above, they have provided us with a great new Monthly Marker! Be prepared to party five to six times a day throughout the month of November to their “Hungarian“!
