Wednesday, review day!

The Vana Events music programmers have a nack of finding new folk talent and giving them a chance on either Keltfest or Castlefest . This year’s Castlefest was no exception.
A new band from Spain suddenly appeared on the schedule. A band called Vael , and they described them as followed:
-“Vael mixes worldly musical traditions with their won roots, Spanish folk music. With acoustic instruments and different singing styles, they deliver a strong message to the audience: -focus on what unites mankind, rather than what separates them.”

Well, that got us, the CeltCast team interested and during the weekend we all went to watch this new band. And we all liked them. Yep, they were a little nervous -who wouldn’t be- but they were lovely people and the music was beautiful. So, of course, we offered to do a review on their debut CD Kairós , and I’m not regretting that offer, not a bit! Kairós is a musical adventure that takes us all over the world. A lovely journey in music.

Eagle eyes will also see a new name in the credits of this review. I’m happy to say that Sara SeeDling joined the editing team, so we can get you informed of the newest and nicest folk music as soon as possible.
Thanks for joining our team Sara 🙂

Now enough talk, here is the review

Hello music lovers!

It’s unimaginable, but it is already Monday and again we have 12 beautiful albums for you to show. So… soon to be heard on our renewed radio station!

We start with a few new albums: during Elfia Arcen we acquired no less than three albums of The Trouble Notes from Berlin. I’m going to jump on only hearing their name! What a talented violin player Bennet Cerven is, what a lot of energy! On a tough day, this music immediately makes you smile again! Love it! <3

Friendly Folk Promotion gave us another album made in this year, called “Welcome Autumn” from the band Scarecrow Jack . A folk-rock band from the Ohio Valley. Pirates, this one is for you! 🦜

Yesterday, Hans Elzinga had his album release party in Leiden (NL) for his CD Introspective. An album that guarantees a very relaxing afternoon on the couch with, of course, incense (name of the first song) on. Not as much an album with pure folk music, more world music, recorded at Dearworld Studio by Fieke van der Hurk. 🧘‍♀️

Last week the Witchcraft (2018) album of Trobar de Morte fell on the CeltCast doormat … Wow, I am very impressed by this album! There is no “best” song. The entire album is one beautiful story, like watching a movie with your eyes closed. I’m in love! <3

We obtained the CanzonettaTedesca album ( GoldenCore Records ) during Festival-Mediaval in Selb, last September. With this album we go back to the German Middle Ages. During this festival we also made live streams of this band. If you want, you can look back these streams by checking our videos. Offline material will follow later on YouTube.

And then we also show seven older ones. All beauties with their own style. The Moon and the Nightspirit copy even is a double album! 😍

Very happy that these beautiful CDs have been processed: The Trouble Notes – Super Bloom (2019)
Scarecrow Jack – Welcome Autumn (2019)
Hans Elzinga – Introspective (2019)
Trobar de Morte – Witchcraft (2018)
Canzonetta Tedesca – Sing Mein Goldner Hahn (2016)
OMNIA – Pagan Folk (2006)
Asynje – Faerd (2014)
The Moon and the Nightspirit – Mohalepte (2011)
The Moon and the Night Spirit – Mohalepte Bonus (2014)
Poeta Magica – Saga (2014)
Kayleigh – The Dolmen (2015)
FAUN – Renaissance (2005)


Musical greetings, Ilona CeltCast

Wednesday Review day!

And today we have the honour to introduce Mann to you, the new CD of Faber Horbach ‘s brainchild Sowulo .

After two albums inspired by nature and the pagan festivals, Faber found his inspiration somewhere else for his third album. within himself.

he gave us an album that is intense, powerful, sometimes overwhelming but in the end beautiful. Writing this review was a journey for me as the music Faber has written isn’t ‘easy’, so I needed my time to listen to it, slowly understanding what he was saying through his music. and in the end, thát is the power of Mann. It’s a piece of musical art.

want to know more? Well here is the link
