Forest Halls Celtic Show 22

February 6th, 2017 by Jane Valencia

Today’s show honors Brigid, the Celtic goddess and the Irish Saint, with music
related to lore surrounding this powerful figure of light in Celtic traditions.
Brigid was a goddess of the hearth, the forge, and of poetic fire, a protector of
women in childbirth, guardian of the land, and more. In addition to music from the
Celtic lands, we’ll enjoy some ancient prayers and poetry to Brigid. We’ll also
wander along the shores, stepping outside Celtic-inspired music to touch into
neighboring soundscapes that continue Brigid’s threads in various ways.
