Imbolc 2010

Once again we celebrate Imbolc, the hope of spring. Brighid's day is a very special day, though many days of winter remain the snowdrop and the crocus appear in sheltered spots. The hedgehogs come out of their holes as do the snakes. All these are signs that spring is on the way and coming soon.

With this Imbolc podcast we open with a recitation of Brighid's Mantle by Tira. This is followed by The Poet from Cheryl Ann Fulton's album The Once and Future Harp (http://magnatune.com/artists/fulton).

Dillon reads several excerpts about Brighid from Ancient Legends, Mystic Charms, and Superstitions of Ireland by Lady Wilde  (http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/celt/ali/index.htm), including St. Bridget (http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/celt/ali/ali183.htm), The Bride's Well (http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/celt/ali/ali208.htm), and Kil-na-Greina (http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/celt/ali/ali206.htm).

Next Diana Rowan performs The Celtic Sonata- The Star of Munster/Cremonea/Glenlivet from the album Panta Rhei - Celtic and Mediterranean Music for Harp (http://www.magnatune.com/artists/rowan), followed by Maiden in the Mor Lay by Tim Rayborn from the album Honey From the Thorn (http://magnatune.com/artists/tim_rayborn).
