Hope any of you New England area folk can make it; if not we will be doing another gig near Beltane next year.

Winter Dark and Light: Songs of the Celtic Countries

Join us for an evening of music, lore and solstice celebration, featuring the vocal ensemble Epona (past/present members of The Moors, Urban Myth and MotherTongue), with songs in Irish, Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish, Latin, and English.

Wednesday, December 19th, 7:30 pm at Out of the Blue Gallery, 168 Brookline Avenue, Central Square, Cambridge, MA (right off Mass Ave by the Middle East). $5 donation (refreshments provided). Plenty of parking or take the T. For more information email amberapple@aol.com or call the gallery at 617-354-5287.

Epona is Sharynne MacLeod-NicMhacha, Benjamin Bruch, Kate Chadbourne and Peg Aloi. All share a passion for Celtic languages, literature, and folklore. Kate holds her PhD in Celtic from Harvard and is also a gifted storyteller with a special interest in folk traditions, poetry, the lore of the White Mare, and the faery folk of Ireland. Ben is working towards his PhD from Harvard and is very involved with the Cornish language, linguistics, music, and is a Bard of the Cornish Gorsedd. Sharon is a writer, teacher, and performer who has studied Old Irish, Celtic Literature, and Mythology at Harvard. Her work involves early Scottish and Irish ritual,deities, wisdom texts, and nature lore. Peg is a writer, herbalist, teacher and pagan activist who has studied Irish and Gaelic at Harvard. She is very interested in British folklore and magical traditions.

Their shared interests in Celtic culture, particularly music, led them to embark upon an artistic endeavor which is still finding its shape but which owes no small amount of inspiration and a-musement to the legacy of a cult of horse-goddess worshippers who lived long ago upon the plains and m

well thanks for the well wishes all!

53: the group has just formed and this is our first gig, so we do not have any sort of "average" numbers of performances per year...I also do not see anywhere in my post where it suggests we would only perform once a year, so I am not sure why you wrote that, but in any case, we hope to do more!

Hi Peg, this sounds like something daughter Natalie would be interested in (aside from me hearing you to). I'm gonna see if any others in the family would be interested? The kids could sure use hearing the music of other traditions. Dean Martin, Bing Crosby & Perry Como get to milk this time of year. Barry

Thanks for asking, it went excellently well!!!! Sadly the venue we chose would not hold all the people who wanted to come! We had seats for about 37 and at least 52 showed up. But they all squeezed in okay, moms with kids, students, elders, folks in the neighborhood and some who came from a long way to attend!

One guy who attended emailed me with this to say:

"My heartfelt thanks to all who facilitated one of my most memorable musical events of recent years. The group Epona, provided me with the most rewarding "pan-Celtic" musical experience since Shaun Davey's Pilgrim. Not only are these people musicians and performers of outstanding talent and presence, they are also qualified to be considered bardic scholars in the classic sense of the expression. I felt that I was in the hall of "a king of noble fame" to be entertained and enlightened in this manner by four bards. I recommend them to all and put geis upon Brian and Amberapple [my email name] to keep me/us informed of their future activities. Again, goru cead mille maith agat -- it was extraordinary."

We are planning to do another performance in late April/early May and will schedule it for a weekend (and in a bigger space!)

Sounds absolutely fantastic - wish I too could have been there.

I should have attended a circle dance at 07.30 today at Sale Water Park but having taken mut for walk in downpour earlier, I came home cold and soaked, so circled round the kitchen on my own. Recieved odd glances from dog!

Peg --

Congratulations! I'm happy that it went so well.

Do you plan on making any recordings in the near future, so that those of us who cannot travel to see you in person can still participate in your success?

well, a recording was made on a minidisk. I have only heard the very beginning of it but it sounds pretty good, so if the quality is nice I may be able to send a copy to friends who can't make it.

We do want to do a formal recording at soem point but I haveno idea when that will happen.
