Good morning everyone!

After the first already fantastic day at Castlefest , the camping site slowly wakes itself up with the increasing intensity of shower doors clappering over at the sanitary units. As the first rays of sun evaporate the dew on the tents, those privileged to already be here, rise and prepare themselves for today’s program over breakfast, with the festival terrain at full capacity.

On the music-menu of today are the soothing sounds of Irfan , the party that is EMIAN PaganFolk , mystical melodies by The Moon and the Nightspirit , the energy-boost of The SIDH , the beautiful voice of Gwendolyn Snowdon and the high-rising Sunfire . And that’s just before dinner! The evening will feature Sowulo , Kaunan , The Dolmen , Fiona (of FAUN ), Coppelius , Prima Nocta , Eivør and exclusively for these same people currently waking up: ThunderCrow as the closing act on the Meadow stage.

So come on over and join the party or follow us closey and enjoy those snippets of the festival that we will be able to bring to you!

Good Morning 2

Kaunan, the medieval/norse folkband

Kaunan , the medieval/norse folkband that plays all the hottest hits of the medieval period is a German/Swedish/Austrian band formed by Oliver S. Tyr , Göran Hallmarken and Boris Koller .

We first encountered them at the Midwinter Fair Archeon where we immediately fell in love with their whole personality on stage and their approach to the music.

Last year they released their first album “Forn” of which we immediately used the amazing song “Vallåt” (featuring Einar Selvik and Maria Franz as vocals) as our Monthly Marker!

All performances at Castlefest are worth watching, but this one on the Village Stage on Friday is certainly high on the wishlist of many of the CeltCast Family, so we do recommend it to everyone there!

February’s Monthly Marker!

Thank you Sunfire , for a great meet-up in the CeltCast livingroom, and for providing us with a beautiful and energetic “Yoyo” for a Monthly Marker this past month. But January is now behind us, so it’s time for a new song in the spotlights!

February’s Monthly Marker is an amazing song by Kaunan , in which a beautiful duet is sung by guest singers Maria Franz ( Euzen , Songleikr , Heilung ) and Einar Selvik ( Wardruna ). The song is about a couple that have just had a new baby. The mother is working the hay while the father is at the farm, when she calls out to him to ask if the baby is still alive. Spoiler alert, yes, the child lives!

We hope you enjoy this moving song as much as we do, as we play it five to six times a day, every day, throughout the month!
