New tunes! New videos!

We have been busy putting the last scenes together for the Avalon video to round off the production cycle for the album of the same name. A video was made to tie in with footage from past Glastonbury Beltane celebrations and our song about the celebrations in the town. You can see this video on our You Tube site here:

Dancing Hare music videos

You’ll also find three guitar solos written recently by Matt. One’s an arrangement of “Oh, the Oak and the Ash”, a tradition song and there are two brand new tunes, Galliard for King Arthur and Lady of the Fountain. Inspired by all the Arthurs in time and also the stories from the Mabinogion.

Gig coming up at Halstead on 22nd March in Halstead, Essex, the Wild Warriors Beltane Picnic.

Social media is proving frustrating at the moment, as certain sites want to make you fork out a small fortune to get your music further out there. Although some sites are great to connect on a personal level, we are realising that a like of a page doesn’t necessarily mean that they have clicked the option to receive updates from you, which can make you look as if you are not doing anything as the information is not reaching the interested audience. It certainly isn’t a level playing field when you are up against record company budgets boosting out reach with hundreds or thousands of pounds.

Out there we shall go, to make sure we are known 🙂

Best wishes to all our supporters and friends as we head towards Beltane.

Festivals and gigs

Would you like to see us at your festival, conference or event? Now we have a full set list, we would like to hear from you.

A third album is in the planning which will take us through the seasons of the year. Our first album was a mixture of songs from mystery lights to sacred places and stones.

The second album ‘Avalon’ took us to 12 sound portraits of Glastonbury and surround areas. We wanted to do something in the present in the town, with the crystal shops, celebrations of all the things that go on in the evening. There’s the songs of lesser known places in addition to the more famous landmarks, such as Brides Mound and the often overlooked but equally fascinating White spring, right next door to the Chalice Well.

We’re just finishing off the Avalon video, as we realised we hadn’t actually done a track of us actually moving and the videos on our You Tube site were mostly pictures of places by ourselves, or in the case of the Warriors Call video, a special fracking song, with footage specially used with permisssion.

So with a full set list, we now get out there. If you would like to see the Dancing Hares play at an event you like or attend, please do let them know about us 🙂

Wishing our followers a great Ostara passing into warmer days in the Northern Hemisphere.
