An Cailleach w/ Pól Mícheál

Belfast, 17.01.24

The Cailleach, the celtic goddess of winter, is said to shapeshift into a hare. Grazing and greeting those who cross the threshold into the otherworld. You might see her in this guise, hopping about the landscape.

This mix is inspired by this folklore alongside the liminal dream-like thoughts I've had since moving back to Ireland, and the 'shapeshifting' that one might conjure this winter in order to get through the dark nights.
