    The title track is a typically rousing anthem in honour of the Pagan Horned God of Nature. From there we go into Under a Beltane Sun, a song so catchy you'd need a vaccine not to sing along. A duet with Eala on the retelling of the tragic tale of Branwen in Branwen's Lament cannot fail to touch the heart. The album finishes with an 8 minute epic retelling of the story of Ceridwen and Taliesin. This album is set to become another classic.

about

I played my first gig in Australia in November 2009 and I immediately fell utterly in love with the country. I've been back almost annually since then and played even more concerts and seen more of the landscape. Australia is wild, infectious, and the people are wonderful. It gets under your skin. The landscape is definitely still King, and we walk upon the land carefully. Australia is the Singing Land with ancient Songlines that still sing from the red earth to this day. I can't wait to hear you sing once more...

lyrics

The Dreaming
(Damh the Bard)

Welcome now a visitor to your shores,
Following a dream I can’t ignore,
From a distant land you may never know,
Of sun and rain and snow.
Here where the endless skies reach for the sun,
The gum trees stand like the oaks of Albion,
And the land sings in lines of ancient song,
For the soul to sing along.

(Chorus)
And the Southern Cross shines down
on where I stand.
And I hear the voices from
the Singing Land.

Here where the land still is king,
Beneath red sand the ancestors are dreaming,
And a mother knows which song must me sung,
When a new life has begun.
A Serpent made a path across the land,
Formed the rivers and mountains where they stand,
These songs are in the Kookaburra’s call,
But she’s laughing at us all.

Oh can you feel me dreaming,
Oh can you feel me dreaming,
Oh can you feel me dreaming, oh.

Familiar stars now shine from up above,
I’ve returned to the land that I love,
But my heart must try to understand,
It’s now shared by another land,
Beneath the plough I look to the setting sun,
As I stand once more on the land of Albion.
But the Southern Cross will guide me to your shore,
To hear you sing once more.

Oh I can feel you dreaming,
Oh I can feel you dreaming,
Oh I can feel you dreaming, oh.
