The Daily Disc: Book of Tunes – New Found Trails (2020)

2021 Book of Tunes CD 1 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.

His website states >> Book of Tunes is a “one-man-band project” by Volker Armbruster. The eight-track album was created within a year. “New Found Trails” is not a traditional Irish folk album, but has been heavily inspired and influenced by Irish music. All songs were composed, recorded and produced in our own studio, the “noise factory” in Ludwigsburg. <<

I’m longing for the next album, and I’m sure you’ll share my opinion once you hear Volker play.

The Daily Disc
Introducing Vaev

The Daily Disc today is Vaev by Vaev (2020)
The band members of this band from Denmark are well-known names in our scene: Poul Lendal and David Mondrup (Mallebrok). In four songs you will hear Mia Guldhammer (VIRELAI/Mallebrok) as well!
This album was a nice surprise in our mailbox, I have to say! Because of the electronic sounds, part of the songs are classified as “charged”, you will find those in our Spotify CeltCast Radio – Charged list! The other tracks we started to play on CeltCast Radio itself.
The songs are interpretations of traditional Danish folk tunes. If you love Trolska Polska, SKRÖMTA and Virelai songs AND you love a bit more power in acoustic music, then you definitely should listen to this party. The album contains a booklet with 14 funny pages. You will find lyrics and drawings in it. This album is very suitable for Balfolk dancing! My favourite song is: Lejerdrengen, Engelsholm.
Thank you Go Danish Folk Music for sending in this absolute gem!
