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.”



Location: Castlefest (NL) – Day: 3 Band/Artist: SeeD Pagan Folk- Part: 1



SeeD, the Faerie and Pagan folk band for Holland

The Faerie and Pagan folk band for Holland of this moment is, SeeD Pagan Folk . These friendly and talented musicians ( Koen , Sara , Robin and Lars ) write their own music. They draw inspiration from anything magical, including Castlefest and the fields of the Keukenhof that houses this beautiful festival.

With the songs of SeeD, you are taken into the mysterious world of the Ancient Fae, the modern world of dreams and passions in life. As these four musicians travel from festival to festival they tell the tales of the Faerie realms and make the audience dance like goblins!

All in all, there is a little awesome madness to this band that makes everybody smile, dance and feel happy. Even a bunch of crazy monks! ? So, wanna dance like a goblin as well? Want to lose yourself in the stories of the Fae with the tunes from SeeD? Want to feel happy and smile like the Cheshire Cat? Come to Castlefest! SeeD plays on Thursday and Saturday.

We celebrated the Bastaard Fantasy Awards last night!

Well, 2017 is now truly and well behind us. Just one week before we kick off the festival season with the Gothic & Fantasy Beurs , we celebrated the Bastaard Fantasy Awards ’17-’18 last night at the Muziekhuis in Leiden.

And what an amazing celebration of 2017 is was!
Not only did this evening give us the chance to hug many many friends and have chat while enjoying a good glass of “whatever drink” was preferred and enjoy really good music by Pyrolysis , SeeD Pagan Folk , Prima Nocta and Harmony Glen .

Most importantly, there were also some awards to hand out!!

While we are all about the music and the festivals, for us as a CeltCast team, the category “Best Photo” was really special. We had two of our photographers on the short-list to win this award!

We are most happy to let you all know that our Kees Stravers has won the Award for “Best Photo 2017” with his awesome picture of Heilung ! Huge congratulations to Kees! This is really well earned and an recognition for all your hard work!!

Of course there were many more awards to hand out!! The “Best Live Act” awards went to Heilung (International) and Prima Nocta (Netherlands/Belgium). The award for “Best Album” went to Ye Banished Privateers with their new album: First Night Back in Port.

The absolutely brilliant Keltfest won the award for “Best Festival”! No festivals without the market. So new this year was the award for “Best Stand”, which was won by Wilmy ‘s Pagan Ways .

Besides good music and a market festivals have so much more to offer. This was shown in the last two awards. “Best Entertainment” was won by Kening Striid (Historic Medieval Battle) and the “Best Book” in 2017 was written by Sophia Drenth :Bloedwetten 2 – Verlossing.

To all winners, huge congratulations from CeltCast. To all those who didn’t win, you were nominated and on the short list, that’s already awesome!

We hope to see you all this coming festival season!!
