Northern Poet Performance
SATURDAY | 17:30 – 18:30 | ONCE IN A BLUE MOON
I am a wandering poet from the rugged lands of Britain. For many a moon I have wandered the ancient sites scattered across the globe. Seeking the wisdom and magic hidden within our long lost pagan cultures. But it wasn’t until I returned to the misty isles that I was truly able to stand in my purpose. For it was here that I remembered that nothing is ever truly lost and with dedication, belief and presence all that has been forgotten remains. I have heard the songs whispered in the whirling winds.
I have bathed in the healing waters of the icy mountain springs.
I have danced in the underworld with the medicine of this land.
And with your time and presence even if only for a moment I invite you to dance on this journey of remembering with me.

Faire Folk with India Terry

SATURDAY | 19:00 – 20:00 | ONCE IN A BLUE MOON
India Blue is a contemporary Faerie-Folk musician and songwriter based in the South East of England. Drawing inspiration from spirituality, history, folk tales, nature and the complexities of being ‘human.’ Mainly self-accompanied by her Celtic harp, piano, and many other strings, India weaves together poetic lyrics and ethereal, sometimes moody melody. “The piano veers between mournful and exotic; the voice is somehow frail and supple at the same time; the lyrics go down all manner of dark rabbit holes.” – Hastings Independent Press.
Last year India self-released her debut studio album ‘The Circus Came and Left’ which was patiently awaited, and highly acclaimed, including this statement from Nick Pelling of HIP “It may well become a folk classic.”
Right now, in between festivals, India is dedicating herself to learning songs and skills on her new harp Silmari, practising Bhakti yoga and devotional singing, and writing… lots.
