This summer I plan to record a music album that focuses on the Otherworld. My own personal work has led me down this path for the last year or so, and now I would like to try and use the inspiration to convey some of the beauty and enchantment that I have experienced when working with the Otherworld, the Fair Folk, Faery.
I plan to take a break this year from writing books, as I have just finished and submitted my manuscript for Hedge Druid with Llewellyn Worldwide. I’d like to use other people’s words for a while, and let them speak through me in this new venture. So, I aim to look to old poetry such as Thomas the Rhymer and La Belle Dame Sans Merci, to weave a collection of stories in musical form that honour and portray the Otherworld.
What are some of your favourites? What would you like to see put to music? Please do leave a comment!
