About a year ago Home came out, the first solo album from Rob van Barschot . A album featuring the GUDA drum, a instrument he fell in love with during the recording of ThunderCrow’s Drop It!.
It’s a lovely New Age/Jazzy album that I loved when i first heard it, and still play with just as much joy nowadays, as do the other members of the CeltCast team.
But, as New Age music falls outside of the Acoustic folk format we had to decide to leave Home outside of the CeltCast radio stream, which also means it wasn;t eligible for a review on the CeltCast page.
Loving the music I did write a review and published it on my own facebook page

and I thought that would be the end of it. But….as often happens when we at CeltCast really like something, we tend to start looking for excuses so we cán play it. We start looking for loops in our own format so we can share the music we love.
Because in the end thát is why CeltCast was started, To support the bands. To give acoustic folk bands, be it traditional Celtic-, Eastern European-, Nordic-, Viking- or pagan- or fantasy folk a platform where their music can be heard.
Well we found the loop, and that loop is called Fox And Bird. A mystic pop/folk song that Rob wrote together with
, member of the mystic pop/folk band
So here it is, One year after the realise, but only two weeks before Rob-with his band Guinevere- will again be visiting the
stages, and where he will give two GUDA drum workshops.
To give you a feel how that will sound, have a read, and then drop over to spotify and listen to Home. Or better yet, go over to Bandcamp and get your own copy 🙂
