August 7th, 2016 – Episode 10 – First Harvest

In the Celtic Wheel of the Year, this is time of the First Harvest – the beginning of the harvest season, and of the gathering of community in various ways: through festivals, markets, and so on. In this episode we’ll be enjoying a kind of musical gathering, in which various musical styles, from traditional to modern, intermingle. So, I invite you to listen today for elements of jazz, rock, folk, and ballad, and more in our wanders through the forest. We’ll also stepping outside the Celtic realm of the forest into a neighboring area of myth and magic, with that of a pair of folk-indie-pop songs from Iceland.
