In medieval England, Magic
was a service industry!

Chances are that when you hear the words “medieval magic”, the image of a witch will spring to mind: wizened old crones huddled over a cauldron containing unspeakable ingredients such as eye of newt. Or you might think of people brutally prosecuted by overzealous priests. But this picture is inaccurate.

To begin with, fear of witchcraft – selling one’s soul to demons to inflict harm on others – was more of an early modern phenomenon than a medieval one, only beginning to take hold in Europe at the tail end of the 15th century. This vision also clouds from view the other magical practices in pre-modern England.

Magic is a universal phenomenon. Every society in every age has carried some system of belief and in every society there have been those who claim the ability to harness or manipulate the supernatural powers behind it. Even today, magic subtly pervades our lives – some of us have charms we wear to exams or interviews and others nod at lone magpies to ward off bad luck. Iceland has a government-recognised elf-whisperer, who claims the ability to see, speak to, and negotiate with the supernatural creatures still believed to live in Iceland’s landscape...

Welcome back Elspeth. It is sad I have heard from spouses of several well known members back in the day that have passed on.

I do remember you and it is great that you stopped by. We now have an App and a mobile site, but we have managed somehow to keep the original website going.

Again welcome back! heart.gif

Fun, energetic, and colorful Americana - We Banjo 3 is a music project with a heartfelt, warm, and positive approach to folk music. Their live shows are just as engaging and powerful as their studio setting, and their most recent studio release, “Roots to Rise - Live” is a powerful live performance, showcasing the chemistry of these amazing musicians, and their uncanny ability to connect with the audience on a deeper level.

This live release is an example of seamless character, and passion, where every element is utterly balanced, and it is obvious that the artist put a lot of effort into creating a very recognizable sonic formula. As a result, the listening experience is unique and easy to relate to, for listeners from all walks of life. With their virtuosic combination of Americana, bluegrass, and Irish folk, We Banjo 3 has continued to set the bar higher with every release. Although their records are amazing and fun to listen to, the stage is definitely the context which showcases the group at its best. These amazing performers bring a youthful, contagious energy to the stage, and it is impossible not to be completely rapt by their live shows....

Somewhere in between class and innovation - The Perkelt project is actually the brainchild of Stepan Honc, a musician and performer from the Czech Republic.

Stepan has an academic background in music, and he had the chance to master performance, music history, and other focus areas while studying at some of Europe’s most notable music schools and institutions. From him, Perkelt is more than just a music project - it is the realization of a life-long dream. He acts as a composer, arranger, and instrumentalist, along with founding member Paya Lehane, who shares an equally impressive passion for music, as well as a rich academic background. Recently, the project brought a stunning new single to life. With “Air and Fire,” it seems that Perkelt set out to bring a keen sense of spirituality to their music. By that, I don’t necessarily mean that the music itself deals with spiritual or religious topics, but rather that the sound itself is an experience that could be regarded as spiritual, in more than a few ways....

Beautiful folk-inspired melodies with a strong legacy - Kennedy’s Kitchen is a long-standing and very talented folk music group with a storied background. Their unique sound is a combination of traditional folk influences and innovative melodies, bringing so much personality to their vision and creative formula. What’s even more particular about the group’s vision is that this band has been performing since the late 90s, with countless shows under their belts, not to mention their excellent recording studio pedigree. Hailing from South Bend, Indiana, Kennedy’s Kitchen set out on a life-changing journey to spread their love for music across the states, gracing stages anywhere from NYC down to Florida, and many other places in between. With an average of 80 shows a year in their schedule, it’s easy to see why these musicians managed to develop such a stellar chemistry and bring their sound to new heights. Individually, each musician is extremely talented, and the sum of the parts makes for an even more engrossing listening experience....

Background: The surname Archibald is of patronymic origin, being derived from the first name of the father of the original bearer. Archibald is derived from the ancient German personal name Ercambald for which the literal translation is “precious-bold”. The surname Archibald simply signifies “son of” or “descendant of” Archibald. This surname is particularly associated with Scotland where one of the earliest records of the name is of Erchembaldus, Abbot of Dunfermelyne, circa 1180 A. D.

Variations: Arcebold, Arcenbald, Archibald, Ercambald, Erchembaldus, Arcbald, Archbald.

Not sure about all of the members on here, but I know some of you have talked about getting started with computers with the famed Commodore 64 from the 1980's, which was the most successful computer ever selling 17 million units.

Well, some boys from down under are working on bringing back the Commodore 64 with a project called the Mega 65 project. They already have a working version of the new system that supports HDMI and Internet along with full compatibility with the C64 and all of those ancient games we use to play. This system will run 50 times faster than the original C64.

Check out their website located here for all of the details.


Right now there is immense interest in 80s retro computers due in part to a number of shows that feature the 80s like "Stranger Things" to name one. Check out ebay and you will see several of these 80's systems now going for $500 to as much as a $1,000. The last of the C65 which was produced very limitedly recently sold for $87,000 at auction. So check your attic for some hidden treasures!

They are entering the pre-production phase with several working models of the final version. Here are some pictures from their website.

Right now they are exploring various ways to fund the production phase, keep an eye on their website, forum and facebook page for more details when this little gem becomes available.

Greetings to our Celtic Radio Community! We would like to extend our apologies this year on the limited updates and news features we have posted.

After several successful years of streaming through the Radionomy platform, today we have decided to end our streaming accounts on Radionomy.

It appears that most listeners from Canada and the U.S. have been blocked from that platform, but it goes a little further than that. Radionomy appears to be redirecting our listeners to other broadcasts and they have crippled our ability to stream our channels through their platform.

There was an option to continue our 3 Radionomy channels by paying them a huge service fee, but in the end we would have ended up with duplicate channels that resemble what we currently offer through our Shoutcast channels.

The Radionomy channels have been closed today and we will remove any links on the website to those channels.

Sad state of affairs for the independent radio webcasters. Unlike the original radio broadcasters from 1906, they did not have to deal with regulations and the constant push for money money money!

Our TorontoCast streams based in Canada will continue at this time.

The Radionomy streams are not working for anyone residing in the U.S. Outside of the U.S. the ad-supported streams are working fine.

So basically they are blocking any listening from the U.S. Here is a press release on the topic. More depressing news for streaming in the U.S.

To think that the beams in Notre Dame were 1,200 years old is just mine boggling. They really should have taken better precautions when renovating such a treasure.

But at least Europeans honor the past and try to keep their monuments in good shape. Whereas in the U.S. they tear down works of art that are deemed no longer politically correct. If Rome was in the U.S. it probably would have been flattened for a dog park!

Just a quick note that our "Celtic Christmas" broadcast is up and running. We did not plan on keeping this broadcast going until the season, but through some sort of mixup the server is still active. Not sure if we paid for a yearly server, but most likely the case.

Enjoy Christmas in July!

A Medieval Castle in France

could be Notre Dame's salvation

user posted image

In a forest clearing in central France, history is being made. Or more precisely, remade.

This is the Guédelon medieval construction site, a back-to-the-future project that involves recreating a 13th century castle from scratch.

How hard can that be in an age of electricity, power tools and hydraulics? Extremely, if you decide to do it using the methods and materials in use in the Middle Ages, as workers at Guédelon have been doing for the last 20 years.

Now the traditional skills being rediscovered here are in demand for the reconstruction of Notre Dame Cathedral, ravaged by fire in April.

The inferno reduced the cathedral’s roof, partly made with oak from the 12th century, to dust. Flames also consumed the 19th century spire, which collapsed and crashed through the Gothic stone vaulting. At the heart of the blaze, firefighters estimated, the temperature rose to up to 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit.

Background: The origins of the King surname date back to the time of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It comes from an early member of the family who was a person who lived and acted like a king. It is derived from the Old English cyning or cyng, meaning "king," and was probably first bestowed as a nickname upon someone who was kingly in personality or appearance, or perhaps to someone who had played the king in a pageant.

Variations: King, Kin, O'King.

In order to line up our desktop website with our mobile App, we have made a change on how you can login.

Starting today, you may login with either your username or your email address.

Passwords will still be different between the two systems (App vs. Desktop), although on your own you can update your passwords to match.

Or, you can just avoid the hassle of logging in by using our facebook login if you have a facebook account. That works in either system.

China’s rulers already revile Hong Kong’s independent streak. Many see the island territory as a feisty place corrupted by Western political thought, a legacy of its time under British rule.

Now along comes a campaign to vindicate the Communist Party’s worst suspicions.
This movement’s adherents aren’t clamoring for freer elections. Nor are they demanding outright independence.

They want to transform Hong Kong back into a British territory — and proclaim Queen Elizabeth II as their head of state.

“Many Hong Kongers love Her Majesty very much!,” says Alice Lai, the leading face of the campaign. “Even now, we still call Her Majesty ‘The Boss.’”

Even in Hong Kong’s more rebellious circles, this idea will sound far-fetched. The city’s pro-democracy camps are mostly fixated on less radical goals, such as loosening Beijing’s grip on Hong Kong’s leadership.

But the Hong Kong-United Kingdom Reunification Campaign, while extremely small, is quite serious.

This is on the heels of Outlaw King which I think they did a great job with that movie. I get the sense the budget for this movie is not as big as Out Law King - but I am hoping the story and acting will surpass Out Law King.

Just realized that Angus Macfadyen who played Robert the Bruce in the original Braveheart movie, returns to claim his part which is really nice spin to this movie. Looking forward to it.

Just have not heard about how to watch in the U.S. This is being released in the UK. Anyone know how we can watch in the U.S. please post here. Thanks!

Scotland 1306, Robert the Bruce (Angus Macfadyen: Braveheart) crowns himself King and takes the ambition of Scotland’s freedom as his own. But he cannot overcome England’s power: defeated again and again, his army is scattered and Scotland’s nobility abandons him. Hunted, with a price on his head, he finds himself alone and wounded. The cause of freedom seems lost once more.

Hidden secretly in a secluded croft of a clan pledged to England, and close to death Robert is nursed back to life by a young widow and her orphaned children. His determination to do what is right, regardless of the cost, reinvigorates his passion to rise again. But it’s not revenge he desires. It’s freedom. Now.

Also starring Daniel Portman (Game of Thrones) Anna Hutchinson (Cabin in the Woods), Jared Harris (The Crown), Zach McGowan (Black Sails, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Patrick Fugit (Almost Famous), Kevin McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Emma Kenney (Shameless) and featuring original music from Scottish national treasure, Lulu.

Welcome euni33, thanks for finally posting and thank you for the support of our site and broadcast over the years.

We so appreciate people that have been listening or visiting us that decide to post. And would love to hear about your story if you want to share.

Very interested in Iberian Kelts as we have a number of music groups and dancers that we feature on Celtic Radio from Spain. And it appears this crossed the ocean to South America as many of those countries have Bagpipe bands and Highland Games or Festivals.

Pull up a chair, a pint and listen to the music. You won't regret biggrin.gif

Again thanks for posting!

We are still getting some decent listeners from Europe and Canada. Looks like we will be able to keep our three Radionomy Streams as the service requires a certain # of listening hours per month.

For those receiving the message that the stream is no longer available in there country, just use our website link to tune into those stations from our Canadian Servers.
