CeltCast presents in the Castlefest Academy: a panel about Paganfolk
At Castlefest you must have seen or heard the term Paganfolk on occasion. But what does it actually mean? Is it the basis of a spiritual life, part of a religion, or merely a certain, defined style of music? Does it invoke ancient Gods or just a feeling that many people carry inside? Does one have to feel connected to greater powers, or can anyone just enjoy the music for the music itself?
With a name like this, that some may find somewhat charged, it is easy to imagine that there can be many questions. And for that reason Castlefest has decided to form an international panel with musicians from three different Paganfolk bands. Our special guests on stage will represent Rastaban from Belgium, Waldkauz from Germany and Vael from Spain, three very different bands, but each coming from a Paganfolk perspective. They will answer any and all questions that both Alex and you throw at them, so don’t miss this opportunity!
Obviously the panel is about the style of music, but if you have any questions for the bands themselves, we welcome those as well. Have you had any special experience while listening to any of their songs and you want to know if this was their intention? Want to know if they themselves experience spirituality while playing or writing their songs? Or would you like a more in depth insight into their inspirations? Join us at the Castlefest Academy as we dive deep into the the truest meanings of the wonderful sounds that we call Paganfolk!
This panel takes place on Friday from 16.30 – 17.30h.
