I enjoy listening to ~OMNIA~ even though they get a bit freaky at times. I was watching the video of their concert at Castlefest 2016 a couple weeks ago, and found out that the singer/harpist/keyboardist Jenny is artist Alan Lee's niece! They wrote and perform a song dedicated to Alan Lee. I tried to save the youtube video so it will start at the beginning of this segment (the concert is 1 hour and 26 minutes). If it doesn't work and you're curious, it starts at the 26:15 mark.

(Video removed from Youtube due to divorce between Omnia and Castlefest)

Ooooh Omnia! They do make some amazing music, although I also agree with you on the freaky part. Even though I really appreciate their constant quest to make people aware of the earth, I honestly liked their earlier music better. Guess I'm not that into political messages during concerts..

I especially like "Fairy Tale", "Witches Brew", and "Cornwall". And I had no idea that Jenny is Alan Lee's niece, that's cool!

Not sure what all led to this, but Castlefest announced on their facebook page a couple days ago this:

Quote:
"It is with great sadness that we have decided to no longer book Omnia for Castlefest. Unfortunately, after many years of cooperation too much has happened, both on and off stage, to continue this cooperation. We really regret this course of events. We wish Omnia the very best in their future endeavours and therefore we have decided not to elaborate on the underlying reasons and we won't go into any questions related to this matter."


It's my gut feeling Omnia's sense of 'earth-militancy' may have led to this. Anyway, there will be other venues to see Omnia, and this will make room for more up-and-coming medieval/pagan bands to play the festival.

They do a great version of Twa Corbiez!
