More than just an entertainer, a bard is a spiritual teacher who cements bonds between those for whom he or she performs. A Bard's Book of Pagan Songs, hand-lettered by Hugin the Bard, is a unique treasure that will enhance any feast, festival, or other magical gathering. It includes nearly 60 completely original songs in condensed lead sheets that include the key signature, chords and melody line of the first verse, plus the chorus of each song, lyrics, and chord charts. Each song is prefaced by a story or anecdote interwoven with Wiccan lore to add context to the lyrics.

Review:

A book that contains as much learning as fun is a rare gem, and Hugin's book is a treasure you will certainly want to add to your collection. Part storybook and part songbook, A Bard's Book of Pagan Songs takes you on an adventure through the Mabinogion (a collection of Welsh tales of heroism and romance), celebrates the wheel of the year, and affirms the significance of the pagan heritage. These songs make an excellent accompaniment to festival celebrations, and they are a fun way to learn some of the important aspects of paganism. Hugin tells the story behind each song, followed by words and music so that playing them is as easy as picking up your guitar. The included CD gives a feel for how some of the songs could be played and showcases Hugin's considerable talent, which has earned him the title of bard. Be careful when you listen: Hugin's exuberance is contagious, and you may find yourself singing along or even dancing a jig. --Brian Patterson
