I’m kinda in love with the Nordic band Kalandra right now. They even do a cover of Wardruna’s Helvegen, one of my favourite songs. Check them out here: http://www.kalandra.no/
“Herr Mannelig” is a old Swedish folk ballad about a mountain troll, redone by here Garmarna. Such a beautiful, haunting melody.
What an amazing location to sing such a powerful song. Wardruna is such an inspiring band. Check them out here: http://www.wardruna.com/
I absolutely adore Loreena McKennitt. The Canadian singer-songwriter blends Celtic and Middle Eastern music themes and pulls a lot of inspiration from folklore and mythology. The Mummers’ Dance is my favourite song of hers, and even though it came out more then 20 (!) years ago, it still gets me every time I play it.
