Myke Hutchings is a professional musician and Lay Minister for the Rowan Tree Church, a practitioner of the Lothloriën tradition of Wicca. As an Earth-based religion, we celebrate the seasons and the cycles of life. We recognize that Truth is found in many cultures around the world and draw our archetypes from many paths. What makes Lothloriën unique is our acceptance of all people regardless of their culture, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, religion or sexual orientation.
Myke’s work with the church includes curating and maintaining historic recordings of the Rowan Tree Church and its founder Rev. Paul Beyerl as well as bringing the church’s musical and bardic traditions into the future.

Sue, the drummer here
I first started Primal Rhythm in 2005 as a brand for my solo records, drumming workshops and facilitating drum circles. I recorded 2 solo drum workshop discs to enable the opportunity for people to simulate a drum circle in their living room. The first record Primal Rhythm 1 was featured in the Cleveland documentary “Return of the Cuyahoga” which aired on PBS. I decided to create drum band in 2011 to bring the Primal Rhythm discs to the stage. I thought how cool it would be to have all chicks on stage pounding tribal rhythms and thunderous vibes. The Primal Rhythm Ensemble toured 2011-2013.
Once upon a time in 2006, at a science fiction convention in New York, author Catherynne M. Valente (the Fairyland series, Space Opera, Deathless) introduced herself to unsuspecting songwriter S. J. Tucker.
Soon after, they hit the road as fast friends to share combined book launch-concert performances across North America. These shared shows often combined art auctions and guest dancers or circus arts acts with live music from Sooj & readings from Cat, and they ran from October 2006 to October 2013, across road maps, train tracks, and many a narrative arc.
Since her first album, Zero, was released in 1996, Australian Visionary Songstress Wendy Rule has defied categorisation.

Her latest double album, Persephone, is a musical re-telling of the Ancient Greek Myth. Singing in the voices of the three Goddesses who feature in the Myth – the maiden Persephone, her mother, the Earth Goddess Demeter, and Hekate, the wise Goddess of the Crossroads, (with Hekate’s parts chanted in Greek!) – Wendy guides us through this extraordinary tale of Life, Death and rebirth.

Betsy Tinney is magic and story expressed as song. With her sweet smile, nimble fingers, and swaying body, she coaxes tales from the depths of her cello and gifts them to her listeners as a rich musical experience. Her songs inspire feelings that are tender, mournful, contented, intensely fierce, excitedly joyful, calming, or silly–sometimes several of these all in the same song!
The world of Neofolk Romantique is a world of animism; where the spirit of the mountain watches silently with ancient eyes, while the wind whistles and shrieks above, where a storm takes human form and comes to us as a lover upon the roiling sea. Where porcelain dolls come to life at loves first kiss, and portals to magic and wonder open up on streets we’ve walked a hundred times.
