Review day!

It’s midweek, and for the CeltCast team, that means review day. We have a whole row of cool album’s that we can introduce to you in the coming months and we will be doing that every Wednesday. So keep your eye out for that!

We start the series with an album that is a bit older, but we only discovered last summer, just before the review team’s summer break. The band is called Drowsy Maggie and comes from Düsseldorf, Germany. The CD is called Nú Trad. I can tell you that it’s a lovely album for those who like their Irish folk with a bit of a twist and for those who like their music to be fun and cheerful.

We have another bit of news we are proud to share. With the many CDs that need reviewing the editor team became a bit too small. So we have found to lovely ladies who were willing to join the review team and try to translate Cliff’s English into proper readable English (Yes there is a difference 🙂 ) Today we can introduce one of those two new team members. Gwendolyn Snowdon welcome to the team. Thanks for giving a bit of your time to us.

And now for the result of that teamwork, here is the review of Nú Trad, by Drowsy Maggie!

Skyping Teammembers

A very special CeltCast week!

It is Monday again, after a very special CeltCast week! We have become a foundation and we have also been in the air for five years! On this birthday we started a ‘give away’ promotion for two beautiful albums of PerKelt and Paya Lehane Music ! Do you participate (see livestream last Thursday) and win these albums?

Last week CeltCast colleagues came home after a beautiful Autumn Moon weekend and in the meantime, others were getting ready to go to Fantasy Fest Rijswijk and Zotte Zaterdag Gouda . Of course, we collected new material there!

On the 17th October we visited the concert of Irfan and Cesair , location Poppodium de Peppel . It was a very special evening and we received two remastered albums from Irfan, of which ‘Seraphim’ is now ready for the new server (the old album will be replaced).

In addition to an older Pyrolysis album, the new album ‘Daylight is Fading’ also goes to the new server. Unfortunately this beautiful album is not in the photo, since CeltCast team members really want to have this album at home. And, with reason, since CeltCast is mentioned in the booklet! A big hug for that! 🥰

There’s also an album from Calasaig (2003) transferred to the new server, this album dates back to the time that Alex Sealgaire and I ( Ilona CeltCast ) regularly went to the theater. Our love for the folk music has grown by listening to these old albums.

Today there were thirteen (old and new) albums ready for a new start! Do you know all of them?

Names of the artists: SKRÖMTA , FAUN (2), Clannad Irish Band , Loreena McKennitt , Aelixihr , Naragonia , Calasaig , Triskilian , Irfan , Pyrolysis (2) & VIRELAI

CD's

Birthday – 5 year, with Jessica Versluis on harp!



Ten albums are ready for a new start!

A lot of time is needed to fill our new radio server. All old and new music is re-processed and evaluated before being placed on the new server. Today there were ten (old and new) albums ready for a new start!

We also received a number of new songs that aren’t on a CD yet! It’s fantastic when artists want to share those gems with us! Thank you for this confidence in our station!

Names of the artists: Sowulo (new album), ESTAMPIE , Helisir , Harmony Glen , Lindsay Ritch , SeeD Pagan Folk , PerKelt , Lirio , Annwn , EMIAN • PaganFolk Music , Irregang (new material), Mojra Yvette (new material) Varend Volk (new material).
