Neo-Celtic, Neo-Pagan Music from Europe

Maybe the ideal life is a Renaissance Faire . . . naw! Anyway, there is an interesting music movement in Europe, which I think owes as much to gaming as to a sort of folk revival.

This is from a band I discovered not too long ago:

Lais, a female vocal band from Belgium, has changed directions, but this is from their folk-Medieval period: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySmcWR64owo&feature=PlayList&p=DD20F2B43521A982&playnext_from=PL&index=2&playnext=3

One version of the Raven Ballade . . . great neo-Medieval instruments:

And another version of the same piece from the lighter in sound band, Omnia:

Omnia is from the Netherlands.

Corvus Corax (yes, the common raven, quite a theme here!) is a band from Germany that attempts to reconstruct profane Medieval music.

Rapalje is the first Neo-Celtic European band I encountered. I have been their fan for about two years. Unfortunately, their recordings are not available in America and they do not tour here despite taking an occasional vacation in Maine!

They're energetic, sexy in an off-beat way and the fiddle player is terrific.

Rapalje is from the Netherlands. Who knew that the Dutch were secret Celts in their hearts? They certainly show a great love for Celtic music and some very skilled Dutch musicians are playing it.

just listen to that fiddle!

Anyway, here is where gamer metal and folk music come together. This is Rapalje's rendering of Manowar's The Crown and the Ring paired with the ubiquitous Morrison's Jig:

OK, just one more today. This is not a new group. They've performed for more than 20 years and one of their founding members has passed . . . considering she was one of the Babes, she has probably already been re-incarnated.

I have to say that I am slightly afraid of these women!

Maybe, it is the extra letters they put in Medieval!
