It was a great day today, we had a great show, great audience (without you, it would be quite boring ;) ) and a great festival! Glad to be back again tomorrow for our Musick and Poetree show! (at 7 PM).
We're having a great time here at the Faerieworlds… hangin out in the hot sun or the cool of the shade… chilling with all the great people here in sunny Oregon… many faces, many friends, much talk of life and musick … much laughter.. This is me having my picture taken during a happy fan moment… check out my cheesy grin as I am happily embracing one of my favourite singers …
Today we went to the Festival-Site to check out the Stage and the beautiful terrain we are going to play this weekend… As you can see in the picture we end up making some music for our friends from Faerieworlds! Now we have to get some sleep and get ready for a big party this weekend!

This is us packing our bags for the EPIC trip to the USA (west coast) to go forth and show the lovely people at Faerieworlds in Oregon what real European PaganFolk sounds like! BUT… what to take to the land of the free?
It was a great weekend at MPS Bückeburg! Great weather, great atmosphere and great Audience! We always LOVE to play at the Mittelalterlich Phantasie Spectaculum… Thanks Gisi ( and his crew ;) ) for another great weekend!
Yes folks.. Today marks the end of a legend... Damien the OMNIA Roadie is leaving the gang ... He will be working his last gig with OMNIA today and tomorrow at the MPS Bückeburg and then he'll hang up his black OMNIA Crew jacket for the last time so that he can go back to school to study and become even more intelligent and wise than he already is :-)
Yeah! we're Recording again! (but still not for OMNIA) Yesterday we had another fun recording session in the Stennystudio... we like having these little artistic sessions with our sweet friend Fieke as technician! very cosy... The recordings we made two months ago were for the brand new single of our German friends from Saltatio Mortis called "Wachtum über alles" ... we made an english language cover version as a gift for them called "Profit über alles" (and, as the title suggests we did this for free ;-) AND I hear that the single is OUT NOW! and for sale online etc. so if you're interested , check it out HERE!
Today we picked wild blue berries in the forest to feed to the birdies (and ourselves)... hence the red fingers covered in juice!... so for dinner today we made blueberry pancakes with these teenyweeny tart and fresh tasting dutch forest berries! JUMMM!! Iwas really such a beautifull day today! It feels good to be alive!
We didn't feel like blogging yesterday ... sorry... we were very sad 'cause our little birdy friend aka: "Kleinstein" passed away back into the circle of life... He was always the poorly one of the lot, and after our orphaned finches got ill last week he was in very bad shape... Sadly I have to report that despite all that we (Stenny and Ans & Hans) have tried , he didn't make it...
Well , we made it thru the US consulate! Now we have to wait for a couple of days for our passports to be returned decorated with a " temporary legal Alien" visum!! Yo! Omnia ... Alien baby! USA here we come!
We brought our musickal "Pagan Guns" to Belgium this weekend and it ROCKED! After a brilliant couple of crowded gigs at "Folk BeLeuvenissen" in the wonderfully hospitable city of Leuven, we went on to show he crowd at the Na Fir Bolg festival what PaganFolk is all about... wow! what a briliant weekend!
