The Dolmen at Fantasy Forest!
Just one more week left until we travel to
festival in the UK!
We are very excited about this adventure into this new territory! And maybe slightly nervous?😉 This festival is new, the environment is new, most the people will be unfamiliar, even the weather will be even more unpredictable!, but we are very happy to know that there will be many familiar faces as well.
One of these familiar faces are of the sweet awesome people of
!!! They will be playing there on Saturday (in the evening) and on Sunday (lunch time)!
While we are very much looking forward to meeting new people, new bands and learning new things… it will be very nice to hear “Dead cats don’t Meow!” echoing over the festival fields!!
A new album and playing at Fantasy Forest!
Sweet, upbeat, happy, and fun are just a few words to describe the speed folk music made by
And it is not only the music that fits this description. Many of you will have seen them on stages all over England, at
or on stages all over Europe and know that these four musicians are fun, happy and passionate.
Just look at the constant smile
has during every show and you’ll know what we talk about.
Over the last few years
, David and recently
have become dear friends to the CeltCast team and we share many happy hugs and memories.This is why we are looking forward to be meeting up with them at
in less then two weeks time!
Another reason we are looking forward to seeing these cool people is because they just release a new album ‘Air & Fire’, and we wants it!! we needs it!!! We want to get our hands on a copy of that album and listen to the new songs. As a Team we are very curious to hear this new work and see how the familiar sound of Perkelt has evolved. Especially as our Cliff, who has already heard it, can’t stop talking how surprised he is. And how cool the changes are!!! Just as curious??
Sometimes there are these small events that touch us massively.
One of these events is the
organised by our friends from
SeeD Pagan Folk
. It’s a small, intimate event, which always manage to reach deep into the hearts of those present.
As it is always organised in Holland, one small group of very big SEED fans, the
couldn’t easily attend!
So, what did they do? Instead of moping, complaining and crying about not being able to go to the last Goblin’s Grove, they decided to organise something special themselves!!!
A few weeks ago this small introduction appeared on social media:
A north wind whispers through the trees
A portal might soon appear close to thee…
and the rest is (or will soon be) epic history!!!
It is a beautiful location!
At CeltCast we have been at many festivals in the fantasy and folk scene, all of them are beautiful. It’s either the beautiful castles of
or the relaxing park at
, or the German hills of Selb for
But we have to admit, traveling to
will be epic when it comes to location.
The festival is being held at
& Gardens in the stunning Cotswolds in England.
This region marked as an area of outstanding natural beauty for a reason. Just a trip there is already enough to make this team of nature lovers very excited. Throw in a castle, happy people and good bands and you have a team smiling brighter than the sun.
The settlement of the Castle dates back to the Anglo-Saxon time, and has seen it’s fair share of drama, battles and life. However the present castle was built in the 15th century and may have been on the site of a 12th-century castle.
The gardens consist out of 9 individual gardens, one more beautiful than the other. It will be a heaven for photographers and cosplayers alike to get a good shoot.
We promise, our team will do our utmost best to bring back videos and pictures of our visit there to truly show the beauty of this festival location!
