The Hidden Influence of Druidry in the Music World

December 13th, 2022

A conversation with Simon Emmerson, musician, record producer and founder of the Afro-Celt Sound System and Imagined Village:

The Order of Bards Ovates & Druids awarded Simon with the title of Honorary Bard. See more on this here.

And listen to an interview with Simon after the ceremony on Druidcast episode 131 here.

And here the podcast in which Simon talks in more detail about his career on Druidcast episode 35 here.

Here is the track Simon refers to in our tea. So powerful and moving! ‘Release’ is in many ways the Afro Celt’s most personal and autobiographical track. It starts with an ambient drone and ancestral invocation, Iarla Ó Lionáird’s dark vocals sharing the stage with the vocals of Sinead O’Connor.
