Subject: RE: The Pagan Alternative. What's the music?

but then I am partial ;)

p.s. there is a whole section called (I think) "The Music of Witchcraft" which lists many contemporary pagan musical artists (me included).
as for Morris Dancing, I plan to get up at dawn this Monday and watch 'em do their thang with a (skinny little) maypole on the Charles River...lots of pagans are into Morris Dancing but I do not tend to agree it has its roots in anything other than folk ritual traditions, which, along with the ceremonial stuff borrowed from Crowley and Gardner, and the woodcraft/dancing in the woods stuff from England, and who knows how many other bits of amalgam, out together what has become known for better or worse as modern witchcraft/Wicca/Neo-Paganism what have you...
there is no one simple answer to any of it but the website mentioned above has a great deal of material...
