INTERVIEW SPECIAL: DAMH THE BARD
Pagan singer-songwriter Damh The Bard (aka Dave The Bard, aka Dave Smith) has launched a career-defining musical project - a telling of the ancient story cycle called Y Mabinogi, based on the traditional bardic tales contained in the earliest native British writings, The Mabinogion. It’s a very impressive and ambitious concept, and Dave tells us all about the story, and what has prompted him to retell it for a modern audience. Along the way we discuss national identity, mistletoe, ravens, sacred horses and whether the UK’s most prominent pagan performer can break into the mainstream folk music scene.

FolkCast is produced and presented by
'Folkie' Phil Widdows
