We are featuring a great new Celtic group called "Burning Bridget Cleary."

An interesting name to an interesting group. They have taken the name of Bridget Cleary, the last witch burned in Ireland. Read more about her from the band's website:


"Bridget Cleary (Irish: Bríd Ní Chléirigh) was an Irish woman killed by her husband in 1895. Her death is notable for several peculiarities; the stated motive for the crime was her husband's belief that she had been abducted by fairies with a changeling left in her place; he claimed to have slain only the changeling. The murder's gruesome nature—Cleary was immolated, either causing or immediately following her death—prompted extensive press coverage, at a time when her country's prospects for self-government were being hotly contested."
