Come join us for a Samhain show in the Fireside Room at the BFUU. We’ll play songs from our new album, Portals, some crowd favorites, and our song from the Green Album, a compilation of eco-themed songs by a boatload of Pagan artists such as Damn the Bard, SJ Tucker, Kellianna, Wendy Rule, Tuatha Dea, & many others. 25% of proceeds from this album go to the Rainforest Trust, who buy up acres of rainforest for preservation purposes. So far over 5,000 acres have been preserved on behalf of The Green Album alone!

Festival Favorites Sharon Knight and Winter are internationally touring musicians in the mythic-Celtic vein. Their penchant for combining fierce and gutsy bravado with ethereal beauty, a hearty dose of fantastical lyrics, and an obvious love of storytelling has inspired their own style, "Neofolk Romantique". This often sound less Celtic and more "Folktales that ran away with the Faeries at the turn of the century and took cover in an old trunk bound for the circus, which was then commandeered by pirates." This suits them fine.
