"Enter the Otherworld realm of Celtic magic and wonder. It's only a song away..." Let Ruth's lively instrumentals carry you to meet the Fair Folk. Songs range from beloved traditional ballads of magical encounters, Tam Lin and Thomas the Rhymer to evocative original compositions, Birds of Rhiannon and Apples of Avalon. W.B. Yeats' 19th century poem, Song of the Wandering Aengus, is beautifully set to music, as is Samuel Lover's, The Fairy Boy. This collection is a must-have for folk music lovers and followers of the Celtic magical paths. Ruth's dulcimer artistry and voice are joined by a variety of gifted musicians and singers. Given 5 starts on Amazon "What a wonderful album. If you like magical music as much as I do you'll have to have this. Faerie songs, Arthurian songs, Celtic ballads whispily and wonderfully woven in the chords of dulcimer and harp. I loved 'The Fairy Boy', 'Apples Avalon' and 'The Fairy Queen' especially, but the lovely and powerful renditions of the traditional 'Tam Lin' and 'Thomas the Rhymer' are every bit as good. Get this and drift away to the Otherworld." - Review by John Matthews (Celtic scholar and author) "CD is absolutely Otherworld. Ethereal, mystical, mythical - you definitely are over the top - I will be able to use the music in my worship time. Thank you so much, and as a lover of Celtic mysteries, you 'take me there'! Blessings!" - Review by C.W. (Customer)
