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!

Live in the Livingroom again!

Of course we are hard at work getting every little part of the Fantasy Awards 19/20 organised, but we shouldn’t forget to take a moment to spend time with friends and family. And sometimes, we can combine the two! ^_^

Next Tuesday we will be joined by CeltCast’s good friend Philip Steenbergen for a whole new ‘Live in the Livingroom’ session at CeltCast HQ!

With Philip’s incredible history in the folk scene, his brand new album, (which Cliff just did a review on (see this webpage), and of course his upcoming performance at the Fantasy Awards, we’re quite sure we’ll have loads to talk about. As usual we welcome your questions too! Feel free to ask away here in the comments or in those of the livestream itself which we will be monitoring closely for that real-time interaction! 🙂

Join us online and come enjoy this little preview to the Fantasy Awards 19/20. To help you pass the time until Tuesday the 25th, here’s a video we made of Philip at Folk voor het goede doel (Folk for WWF) 2019:

The time is nigh…

We are entering the last week of voting for the long-lists for the Fantasy Awards 19/20!

The photo album for the category ‘Best Costume’ will be online until next Friday, the 20th of December 19.00h CET.

Give the costumes you like most your love by liking them. The top 5 costumes will then go on to form the short list to compete for the award. For this short list we have both a jury and a people’s voting system. We will aim to select a jury which is both knowledgeable and fair. This means that 50% of the points will be given by a jury and 50% by the number of votes that the costume receives.

Sharing the pictures is of course allowed (we even want you to share all over 🙂 ) but please keep in mind that the likes counted are the ones on the picture in this album, not in the shared posts.

The fourth longlist of the Fantasy Awards 19/20 is online!

This is your chance to put your favourite band in the spotlight! Which album, released in 2019 moved you the most?
