Songs for the Solstice! All in all, I think the show turned out pretty well, despite not knowing much about music written for the winter solstice and getting almost all the songs off of youtube the day before the show!! In the process, I learned that there is a wealth of material out there, and I happened to touch on quite a bit of it quite serendipitously. With that said, I must apologize for some egregious errors in announcing the songs. The second song, which I called "Yule Winter solstice" by Gwyl Canol Gaeaf is actually a youtube video with an unnamed song. "Gwyl Canol Gaeaf" is "winter solstice" in Welsh. The ninth song, which I said was by "Hagalaa Runadance" (ouch!) is actually by German pagan-mystic Andrea Haugen, who goes by "Hagalaz' Runedance." The song after is actually "Solstice Evergreen" by Spiral Dance. And song no. 18 is not by "Damh the Band" but in reality by Damh the Bard. Sorry about all that. If anyone who heard the show was familiar with these musicians and (neo)pagan folk and folk-rock music, I must have seemed grossly incompetent. Oh well. But in any case, here's the complete playlist, now more thoroughly researched and hopefully accurate!
