King of Celtic Radio

Proverbs of the Moment
Gaelic Proverbs come primarily from the western Highlands and Islands of Scotland, and they have a distinctly rural or agricultural flavor which reflects the society from which they were gathered. It is to be expected that many of them pertain to the weather, to the planting of crops, and to country life in general. Others reflect the Gaelic love of company and hospitality, fear of poverty and laziness.

Gaelic Proverb:
Is fuar tigh mur bi aoidh air bean-an-tighe.

English Translation:
Cold is a house if the goodwife be not cheerful.

Few countries have a greater number of proverbs than has Scotland. Even today, everyday speech in Scotland is sprinkled with them. Scots are wonderfully given to this way of speaking, and the lovely Scots tongue loses much of its flavor when forced to translate their unqiue language. Those that appear in English have been preserved that way for at least 200 years!

Scottish Proverb:
Grudge not anither what you canna get yoursel.

Link of the Moment
Ron Lindsay's Americelt Music

Just what is Americelt Music ?

Well, Ron Lindsay, a singer songwriter and bona fide celt from Dundee on the East Coast of Scotland would say it is an 'innovative blend of acoustic roots, folk and country laced with the taste of celtic cream'. His debut album Americelt Union features 12 carefully chosen songs which have been produced to create this celtic influenced blend.

Ron's career began in the mid 70's. Life events in 1980 resulted in his music dreams being placed carefully on the 'sometime later shelf'. It took until 2002 before his sometime later eventually arrived. Now working closely with LA based producer John Wooler, Ron is again writing material inspired by his passion for melody and lyric driven music based on real life events, love, conflict and his battle with mental illness.

His album Americelt Union is the result of the new industry contacts made over the last 3 years. Barbara Orbison, wife of the legendary Roy Orbison is one of these new contacts. She asked him to record some celtic inspired demos of classic songs written by her late husband. The results were enthusiastically received and consideration is now being being given to the potential for an americelt compilation of the Big O's hits. The demos of Pretty Woman and Only The Lonely then featured on Iain Anderson's BBC Radio Scotland Show. This generated the seeds of a plan for Ron and producer John Wooler to put together an album of songs written by classic writers of the 60's and 70's and produced in a style aptly titled americelt.

Recorded at Steakhouse Studios, Los Angeles in Novermber 2004, Americelt Union was released on 4 July 2005. The americelt production concept brought together a top class studio band which featured David Immergluck of Counting Crows on acoustic guitars, mandolin, dobro and pedal steel. Stephen Hodges of Tom Waits Band took care of drums and percussion while Jeff Turmes of Fabulous Thunderbirds played bass. Eric Rigler of Braveheart Film Soundtrack fame added his ullian pipes with Kathleen Keane of Bad Haggis on fiddle and accordion. An album truly laced with the taste of celtic cream.

Ron is currently writing new material for his next release scheduled for late 2006. This album will mostly feature his own self penned material. He is also exploring collaboration, more americelt style production work and film score writing opportunities.

The Celtic Zodiac

The Vine, 9/2 - 9/29

In the cool Celtic climate, the GrapeVine required much care in order to bear fruit and became symbolic of sacred knowledge and spiritual initiation, as well as a symbol of sensuality and emotions. The Vine of the Ogham Alphabet is the GrapeVine. Sacred to the deities, grapes were (and are still) used in the making of wine, allowing those who indulge to speak with truth...at least as they perceive it to be...and to release inhibitions. Wine was also once used to stimulate prophecy in the seers by allowing such sages to reach deep within their inner selves, with intuition acting as their guide. Unlike the other Ogham trees and shrubs, the Vine is a more cultivated species. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that the Vine has been known and propagated in the British Isles for a very long time. The distinctive fruits and foliage of this hardy and long-living plant appear frequently on Bronze Age artifacts. Within the Ogham, the Vine is known as the "Weaver," given its tendency to entwine around others, often linking two together. To the Celts, this was indicative of the need to understand the importance of respect toward the options and actions of others. A determined shrub, the Vine is often found in hard-to-reach areas, leaving a delicate and beautiful path in its wake. The fruit of the Vine has long been known to release inhibitions and loosen tongues, thus allowing those who partake of its harvest to speak more freely. It is, however, easy to fall victim to the Vine's intoxicating nature. Noah, the biblical patriarch, is said to have planted a vineyard on Mount Ararat afte........ more
