Ruth Barrett: Back to the Bones (Again) 2022-10-22 08:00 PM EDT
Ruth Barrett (mountain dulcimer and voice) with Rachel Alexander (cello, recorders, voice), Pele Yemaya (percussion), and special guest Falcon River (mouth harp).
This show was originally broadcast in 2021, however due to Ruth's health issues we've decided to replay it this Samhain season - but with some extra new segments our star is filming now. Get your cauldrons and rolling pins ready, there may be baking!
Join Ruth Barrett for an entertaining and informative concert program of traditional Celtic and original folk music and folklore, poetry and song, celebrating the holiday and season of Samhain (All Hallows Eve). Halloween, celebrated on October 31st, is the closing of the agricultural year of northern Europe. In earlier times and continuing today are songs and customs to honor the ancestors, loved ones who have passed into spirit, celebrating wise magical women, remembering victims of the witchcraft persecutions, and divination for the new year.
