ALBUM REVIEW: Martine Kraft – Huldreblod!

A little over a week ago we introduced Cliff to you all as our latest CeltCast family member, and one of the things he said he would be doing for us is reviewing albums, so it’s time for the first one!

Having Martine Kraft ‘s amazing song “Himmelfot” as our Monthly Marker this month, we thought it would be a good idea to start with a review of the album this song is from, Huldreblot, which was released last May.

In his review Cliff certainly shows what he’s made of, as he delves deep into not only the amazing album that it is, but also into his emotional connections with other music that was triggered by it and he clearly did research to provide the reader with not only relevant but also very interesting background information!

Curious yet? Good! 😀

MONTHLY MARKER

With the end of September behind us, we say goodbye to our Monthly Marker Mix, and with it to Celtic Night Geluwe . Thank you Ann, Marc, Lies, Fré, and everyone who made this wonderful festival possible. We will forever carry you in our hearts! But of course this post isn’t only about looking back, there’s a whole new month ahead!

All through October we will play the lovely Martine Kraft ‘s Himmelfot, from her new album Huldreblot, five to six times a day, every day! Though Martine’s Scandinavian background is quite clear, we are fairly certain that all lovers of Irish and Scottish jigs will love this song just as much as we do! Come join us, as we dance away October!

INTRODUCING: Cliff de Booy

There is once again some happy news in our ever-expanding team of dedicated volunteers, as we welcome Cliff into our CeltCast family! This tall man, dressed in handmade period clothing, completed with a perpetual smile, is a very recognisable sight at all the festivals, and his camera is always welcomed by bands and fans alike, as he always knows how to capture the emotions on stage in his shots.

These shots have graced several posts of ours already, so to be able to call Cliff part of the team is quite an honour for us. But besides supplying us with beautiful imagery, Cliff will also be writing album reviews, the first of which is to be published soon, and he will help Marielle in the CeltCast Community Facebook group.

Want to know more of his own personal background story? Then go to www.celtcast.com/cliff and read all about it. Feel free to leave your own welcome message here under this post and we’ll make sure he reads it.

DRAWING A LUCKY WINNER!

Since it is clearly autumn now the straw hat has retired to storage and the leather “darker-half-of-the-year-hat” has reappeared as lucky hat! And who will it be lucky for? Who will win their very own copy of SeeD Pagan Folk ‘s new album Through the Veil?

(Please imagine a drum roll here)

Congratulations Helen Perry!!!
