What a great announcement we have for you today! Just read the email thread that I sent to DruidCast below…
Hello Damh the Bard,
I am writing again because I am not sure if you received my initial email. I know that Gmail can be rather strict as far as spam goes so I removed the attachment of our song and am forwarding our message to you again. Please see below. I hope you receive it this time!

P.S. I love your music too and I love watching your posts on Facebook and ReverbNation. :o)
I’ve been listening to all of the past podcasts thinking to myself, “I’ll send in our music after I’ve listened to all of the DruidCasts.” Well guess what? Today I listened to DruidCast 41. You mentioned that there are people writing in to the show asking why you don’t play more heavy metal or other genres besides folk. You said you play what is sent to you, and folk just happens to be what people are sending in. Then you said something that made me decide to wait no more… you’d love to play other genres, but you need people to send it to you! Well, that’s why I’m sending you this email along with an MP3 of one of our songs “The Emptiness”. It’s a song about the Sidhe. We hope you enjoy it and we really hope you play it.
Most of our music is about digging deep and facing our subtleties. Realizing and learning the magic within us is a huge part of it. Especially after one experiences the dark night of the soul, after we are dragged through the dirt by the dark goddess until we wake up to the wonders that await us… right here… within each one of us.

On another note, I love DruidCast. LOVE IT. I’ve learned so much. I hope to one day take the OBOD course and become a member, but for now I’m working on my own keeping in mind this quote “The world is not in books and maps, it’s out there.” You probably know which famous book that’s from!
Peace and blessings to you, OBOD and everyone who listens to the show.
We were CHOSEN! And our song The Emptiness is on Show #72!!! Here’s a snap shot of the show notes… If you notice there’s an interview just before our song is played, Paul Newman who I believe played in one of my favourite groups of all time… Killing Joke. yeah man! Here’s the link to his website: http://www.storyfolksinger.co.uk/
If you haven’t subscribed to OBOD‘s DruidCast yet, I highly recommend it. Wait a sec… I HIGHLY recommend it. It is one of the best podcasts I listen to, and I do listen to a lot of podcasts. There is ALWAYS something new to learn and consider and ponder upon. So many great interviews and the music is great too. Here is the link to the podcast: http://www.druidcast.libsyn.com/
