Excellent earth centered folk music as usual from Damh the Bard. Another classic album of mythologically inspired balads but a great listen to anyone interested in folk music and the balads of England's ancient past. As we now know from Professor Stephen Oppenheimers genetic research, the ethnic English are as much 'celtic' as the Irish, Scots and Welsh and even our Northern Celtic/Germanic genes are thousands of years older in these Isles than the Invasion of Hengest and Horsa. In Damh's music we all share in a wonderful celtic heritage and nobody puts this to voice better than Damh. Perhaps the foremost Bard of these Isles. Herne's Apprentice
This is the first CD by Damh I heard at a friends house, I borrowed it played it and then bought it. It is an excerlent CD, simply very very good, the guy can sing well and about interesting folky, celtic themes and the music is also top quality if like me you're one of those people who have trouble listening to lyrics.
I bought this album because I was looking for inspirational songs about selkies to fit in with a novel I have written. The song is one of the most beautiful I have ever heard and almost eerily fitted perfectly with my story. The other songs on the album are amazing and I plan to increase my collection of this pagan artist. The songs are storytelling in themselves with captivating and memorable tunes.
