A commentary on Stegzy's album collection

Crone of War – Omnia [#325]

Crone of War - Omnia

More beardy weirdy pagan folk with hurdy-gurdys and that’s folk as in the genre.

Crone of War is not my most favourite Omnia album. It’s more of the same really: beards, hurdygurdys and fae-like guitar playing.

Perhaps after the live compilation album I was spoilt.

#148 – Beltaine – Jennifer van der Harten

Jennifer van der Harten is the cute hurdy gurdy playing harpist from Omnia.

Here she plucks and sings her way through several traditional folk tunes on the harp with the same grace and haunting of Ordo Equitum Solis but without the dark creepiness.

This appears to be van der Harten’s first foray into solo work and it makes an excellent aural accompaniment to  any day filled with peace, joss sticks and dyed voile curtains.
