The music made by the six men

From our neighbouring country to the South, the country of good beers, Belgische patatten, chocolate and good friends, comes Prima Nocta !

To describe the music made by these wonderful six musicians we would need to write a book about celtic myths, long forgotten lands and thick green forests, about drums, bagpipes, flutes and bouzoukis, and still you would not understand the energy, the power and the appeal this band has.

The music made by the six men, Pros , Edwin , Stéphan , Cédrik , Rony and Bert , needs to be experienced. You need to feel it, you need to see it and you need to live it before you understand that what makes Prima Nocta so awesome.

The announcement that these friends would be back in Holland for Castlefest for three shows was met at CeltCast with happy smiles and cheers. And we are pretty sure many Castlefest visitors were thinking the same!

So for those who do not know Prima Nocta yet, our haven’t had the chance to see them live, go go go go go, to Castlefest, they are playing on Friday, Saturday and Sunday!

The ThunderCrow project

The brainchild of Rob van Barschot and Daphyd Sens has been featured on this page quite a few times. This hypnotic mix of Didgeridoo and Drums, will give you, Bass, World, Reggae, Psy-Trance, Chill out Music and so much more.

It is suitably named “Hybrid World Beats” by the musicians themselves. Stories of people having been at one of their gigs all confirm the same, it’s for those who do not know what to expect surprising in a very good way and for those who do know the sound, always so incredibly good to be there and experience it.

As that is what Rob and Daphyd create with their ThunderCrow project, an amazing experience of sound. And most importantly, they do this all over the world!!! They even travel to the US to give shows at Faerieworlds Events !

But first they are going to play at Castlefest . On the Friday night, they are making a special appearance for the camping guests.

Kaunan, the medieval/norse folkband

Kaunan , the medieval/norse folkband that plays all the hottest hits of the medieval period is a German/Swedish/Austrian band formed by Oliver S. Tyr , Göran Hallmarken and Boris Koller .

We first encountered them at the Midwinter Fair Archeon where we immediately fell in love with their whole personality on stage and their approach to the music.

Last year they released their first album “Forn” of which we immediately used the amazing song “Vallåt” (featuring Einar Selvik and Maria Franz as vocals) as our Monthly Marker!

All performances at Castlefest are worth watching, but this one on the Village Stage on Friday is certainly high on the wishlist of many of the CeltCast Family, so we do recommend it to everyone there!

Castlefest 2018

The Moon and the Nightspirit has steadily been growing

Coming originally from Hungary, The Moon and the Nightspirit has steadily been growing to a well known pagan folk band ever since 2003.

While listening to the beautiful tunes of this duo, you are taken into a green world of an ageless moss-grown forest, sylvan realms, where they weave a web where threads of ancient mysticism, dreamy atmospheres, and a place for pagans to feel at home. It takes you on a journey that will have your feet move and your face pulled up in a smile.

When live on stage Ágnes and Mihály are supported by two more brilliant musicians Gergely Cseh (bass) and Végh Gábor (percussions) to make their unique sound even more full of live and power.

Come and experience this with us at Castlefest in 1.5 weeks time!!! The Moon and the Nightspirit will play on Friday, Saturday and Sunday!
