2020m03 – Priscilla Hernandez – Waking of the Spring

Priscilla Herandez

Time for a new Monthly Marker and some special news!

It’s a new month, so once again, time for a new Monthly Marker!
(And for some special Monthly Marker news! Read to the end!)

In this month of spring, we want to celebrate the returning of vibrant life to the earth, so we went looking for a song that really reflects that feeling. And boy, did we find that in Priscilla Hernandez – Yidneth! Not only does the title of the song we chose, The Waking Of Spring, immediately conjure images of blooming flowers and singing birds, the music and lyrics will transport you to Mother Nature’s reawakening lap. Though this song was released as a single, we strongly recommend you check out her albums as well. The music is beautiful and amazing, but the artwork of the albums is out of this world! So, now for that special news!

Seeing as how this year’s Fantasy Awards 19/20 is the first time that CeltCast is the organiser, we wanted to add some of our own flair to it. One of the ways we decided to do that was to add a brand new category to the list, and one that was undoubtedly linked to the radio stream. So, presenting for the first time ever, the new category: Best Monthly Marker! This category is slightly different than the others, in that we kept the voting for this within CeltCast. (Give us something to vote on too, we can’t vote on any of the other categories 😉) So we listed all of 2019’s Monthly Markers and asked all our volunteers to vote on their favourite! The winner of this category will, of course, be announced during the Awards ceremony on the 14th of March, but to all those interested we can share the contestants here.

Last year’s Markers were:
January: Aérokorda – The Cliffs of MOher
February: M’ANAM – Bitter Wind
March: The Dolmen – Black is the Colour
April: Wouter en de Draak – New Horizons, New Adventures
May: Rob van Barschot feat. Guinevere – Fox and Bird
June: Rapalje Celtic Folk Music – The Strayaway Child
July: Greenrose Faire – Never Walk Alone
August: SeeD Pagan Folk – De Gnoom, de Heks en de Boom
September: Danceperados Of Ireland – Session by the Campfire
October: Emian • PaganFolk Music – Spirit Trail
November: MOJRA – An Raibh Tu Ar An Gcarraig
December: ORO – Music from the wild, wild East – Jovano Jovanke

We wish all contestants the best of luck in this added category, and we hope to see you all there on the 14th of March in the P60. Don’t wait, get your tickets here today!

A new month with a new Monthly Marker

Once again we start a new month with a new Monthly Marker, in what seems to be the coldest part of winter yet, at least here in the Netherlands, and of course in North America. Now, there are two things one can do in this time of year. Either bring warmth into your life by turning up the music and start dancing, which is what we did in January with Aérokorda’s Cliffs of Moher. Then there is the complete opposite option…

For February we would like to look to the cold, which is such an integral part of nature. With this month’s Marker we want to acknowledge, even celebrate the Bitter Wind, which is why we were so very excited when M’ANAM approached us and offered a premiere of a song from their upcoming album. It is based on a 9th century Irish poem with that very same name! The music in this song was written by Michael McGlynn , who we all know from ANÚNA , and it features an impressive solo by Philip Barkhudarov . Special thanks to Saar SeeDling (ANÚNA, SeeD Pagan Folk , Crashing Bats ) for your intermediary role!

So let’s get outside, light a fire, and enjoy these impressive sounds together with friends and family!

It tosses the ocean’s white hair;
I do not fear the crossing of a calm sea,
By the fierce warriors from Lothlind.”



HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
We hope you had a great New Year’s Eve, and we wish you al an amazing 2019, filled with the best music and dances! And to start all that off right…we present our new Monthly Marker, Aérokorda’s “The Cliffs Of Moher”!

Aérokorda is a band of three, formed within the Balfolk community. Their music is heavily influenced by both Irish sounds as well as folkmusic from the Balkan area, and this comes together to create a unique sound that is loved by all in the wonderful world of Balfolk dancing. This months Marker was taken from their 2017 album “Hush The Wolves”. We saw them at CaDansa , and of course more recently at the Midwinter Fair Archeon , where they moved the crowd with their passion for music.

So come on and put on your dancing shoes (or go barefoot like many “folkies”) and let’s dance our way into a brilliant new year!
