New month, new monthly marker!

Once more we see a new month on the calendar and that is cause for celebration, because it also means it’s time for a new Monthly Marker! And boy, do we have something special for you this month!

Ingrid Galadriel (Sverresborg, Trøndelag Folkemuseum, Trondheim Vikinglag) and Maria Franz (Euzen) have been friends for years and have been singing together just as long, but only recently did they decide to record something together, which resulted in this astonishing duet!

“Tornerose” is based on a Norwegian folk tune from around 1970. It´s a feminist song, about a woman sitting in her tower waiting for her prince. She is lonely and depressed and no matter what preparations she does, the prince never shows up. In despair she drinks a bottle of wine and takes her sleeping pills, falling a sleep wondering why the prince would make a promise he can´t keep. This duet is sung in Swedish.

From the moment we at CeltCast heard this song we have been in love with the soothing vocals and gorgeous harmonics, and we are very excited to be able to share the song with you! All through May it will be played 5 to 6 times a day.

If you are as excited about this song as we are, let these lovely ladies know, so they might record more! (Or let us know, and we will get word to them of course)
