Perkelt Air & Fire video release
released their newest video, it’s called Air & Fire and it’s the title song of the latest album. For the video, they merged their music with some of their favorite locations in London.
told us about this song: “This is an instrumental song. One particular genre of classical guitar music I love a lot is minimalism. Take a single little musical idea, start repeating it, enhance and build upon it, until it grows into a massive structure. And, if you are PerKelt, throw a little bit of psytrance feeling in the drums and add some super virtuoso recorder parts. I love this song! we have two little motifs, the gentle air at the beginning and the aggressive fire that comes later. They grow together, just as the wind makes a little bonfire grow.”
Perkelt will be playing in Belgium on the 30th of November, on
Vindsval pagan fest
, and on the 7th of December on the Midwinter fair in Holland.
Make sure you don’t miss those, but for now, enjoy their newest video, Air & Fire.
And our review stream continues!
It are busy weeks in Celtcast headquarters. But with music like this, we don’t really mind.
This week’s gem is Egeria, the new album of our Italian pagan folk friends of
EMIAN • PaganFolk Music
, and I can already say fans of Emian’s music will like this album just as much as they did the first two albums; Aquaterra and Khymeia, although Emian did introduce some new influences. It was a pleasure to discover those.
Well, there’s just one more thing to do. Give you the
so you all can dive into Emian’s lovely world of Mediterranean pagan folk music.
Hello music lovers!
Also this week, a lot of hard work has been put into setting up the new radio server. And, we have a theme this Monday, namely: “Close to the CeltCast home” ! 17 albums that were created in the Netherlands and by our neighbours from Belgium.
They are all beautiful albums with their own style! The Ambrozijn album (Wim Claeys, Wouter Vandenabeele) dates from 1998 and contains very original songs. I love it! 🎼
The two albums of
Rapalje Celtic Folk Music
were bought a long time ago in a beautiful wooden box with lovely detailed booklets in it.
We bought the album of Snaarmaarwaar (together with two others) at a very special festival in Belgium:
Celtic Night Geluwe
. We still miss that wonderful event. Ann and Marc created this festival every year with heart and soul!
“Live in Bremen” album is a recording of a concert in Germany. It is a party to listen to this. Jump, jump!
Two albums of
, “Fairytale Folk” is one of my favourites! Tjarda has a beautiful voice and the harp she plays, gives a nice “fairy” atmosphere. 🧚♀️
And, to stay in the mood of the Fairy tales … the album of
“Untold Stories”, where the front of the album perfectly reflects the atmosphere of the narrative (dulcimer) music.

The winter months were usually a quiet time. A time in which we had to think really hard about what to tell you all to keep this page interesting.
These days, there is no rest for the wicked and we are working and posting so much that sometimes, some very important posts get lost in space (cyber or normal space)
So it was to our great shock that we totally missed to post a celebration post for one of our more silent team member’s birthday. So in the mind of better late than never, HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAY DYLAN!
Many do not know it but
is one of our tech-specialists working hard behind the scenes to get all sorts of awesome stuff build and figured out.
Besides that he is a talented musician (check out a project named Bruni) and devoted festival goer!!! His birthday was on the 9th… (yes we are very late – shame shame shame)
But even though we are late, we hope you all would still wish this awesome guy a happy birthday!
