In January, we received an email at CeltCast HQ from Volker Armbruster, the man behind bookoftunes. He told us about the album he released in October 2020, which features Irish and Celtic Folk music with film music elements. After some conversation, a physical copy of the album ‘New Found Trails’ was delivered and…. I instantly loved it! The tracks are all instrumental, and you can feel the ‘movies’ behind the tracks. Get ready to let yourself be enchanted by these special folk-inspired songs.You can find Book of Tunes on:
In the meantime, Volker released three other amazing singles ánd two Yule-tide songs. These are all magical as well! If you are not yet familiar with his work, we highly recommend that you have a listen to his songs after reading this! For the whole month of September, we are going to play the single ‘Ratatoskr’ five to six times a day on CeltCast Radio.
It is a soundtrack song just waiting for a movie to be shot for it!
More about the single ‘Ratatoskr’ on Bandcamp >> A story about the greedy squirrel Ratatoskr living in the world-tree of Yggdrasil in Norse mythology. It always searches for bigger and better fruits, bringing itself and its friend Eikpyrnir in danger. <<
I’m longing for the next album, and I’m sure you’ll share my opinion once you hear Volker play.
Musical greetings, Ilona CeltCast
