Good morning!

The CeltCast team is waking up to what promises to be a beautiful and busy Saturday at Festival-Mediaval !

We are really enjoying our time at this wooded and wonderfull festival In Selb, Germany. The first two days have been amazing. Yesterday we saw some really awesome shows, FAUN , Euzen , Triskilian and many more! Never to forget the special OMNIA show with their collective!

It really was an impressive day.

Today we are gearing up to see Pampatut , Poeta Magica , Cara , Versengold , Pyrates ! and many more.

Keep an eye on our page for all the livestreams!



On our way to Festival-Mediaval! Alex lets you know what to expect!



MONTHLY MARKER TIME!

“Pure Paganfolk, tribal, enchanting, with a moorish feel”. Just some of the words used by our own reviewer Cliff when describing Paya Lehane ‘s solo album Oppidamus, and to be more exact, he used these words to describe one specific song: Memento. Now, there was obviously no way that we would not use one of the songs from this amazing album as a Monthly Marker, and this description was so interesting that it immediately caught our eye. The song takes the listener on a folk journey through time and geography, and therefor is very much what we at CeltCast aspire to represent!

So all through September enjoy this track five to six times a day, and if you want something to read while listening, may we suggest Cliff’s review of Oppidamus, to be found at this link .



Odd… loose… and wonderful!

At Middeleeuws Winschoten & Fantasy Festival everything is different… odd… loose… and wonderful!! ?

Bands mix, Artists crash each other’s stages, people are invited to the stage, band members dance along in the crowd, The Dolmen play disco… and it all ended with one big mash-up of all with instruments!

Also different was that we sadly had to do without our regular team of photographers, but luckily a hero in the North stepped up to take some pictures for us. Thank you *SO* much Bert Hensema , for these and everything else you managed behind the scenes.

As you will see, these images perfectly show the relaxed, laid-back, slightly crazy feel of what was happening on, in front of and around the stage. And if you’d like to see more of awesome party, check out the many livestreams we sent out to you on our page .

A new review is online!

And yes, we do mean NEW! At Castlefest Cliff received a shiny new disc that had not officially been released yet, and he worked his butt off to get the review done in time for the premiere. We’re talking of course about Paya Lehane ‘s solo album Oppidamus!

We all know and love Paya from her work with speedfolk band PerKelt, but with this album she showed us another side to her many talents. We don’t want to give away too much in this post, but comparisons are made with Enya, The Sidh and Robert Miles, and the range of instruments and vocals on this album takes the listener on a journey that completely stands on its own and is a reward in and of itself! From day 1 Cliff has been raving about this album, so without further ado, do yourself a favour and head over to this link and read all about this gem of an album. Fair warning though. After reading this you’ll probably want to buy the album right away and start looking for tickets to a show.
