Faerieworlds Giveaway

One of the best parts of Faerieworlds for me was hearing SJ Tucker play "The Wendy Trilogy" in the Neverland area of the park, under the trees surrounded by faeries and with a merry band of pirates acting out the song.  It's not something I'll forget.  

If you've not heard SJ, you are in for a treat.  Her songs are soulful and addictive.  While buying some music at the festival, I picked up this CD for one lucky reader here at Rue and Hyssop.  Her song "Hymn to Herne" on this CD is one of my very favourites of hers.

Here is what her site has to say about this CD:

Blessings is a purely spiritual work of art. This daring album is entirely dedicated to the pagan segment of S.J.'s fanbase, and may not be appropriate for all audiences. For those that are open to alternative spiritual paths, this album is not to be missed. Blessings opens with an invocation and includes other musical passages which are both powerful and functional, such as a moving piece about the power of the labyrinth, a hymn dedicated to the male deity Herne, a pair of highly energetic tunes devoted to dance, and two playful numbers relating to Mama Dragon. Ginger Doss of Dreamtrybe and Velvet Hammer fame describes Blessings as, "The most sacred, most highly evolved body of pagan work I have ever experienced. SJ walks her path, and it shows."

If you'd like to get your hands on this wonderful CD, all you have to do is be a follower or friend of the blog in some way (subscribe by RSS or email or by Google Friend Connect, or be a pal on FB or Twitter) and leave a comment.  Please make sure there is a way for me to contact you if you win.  I'll announce the winner in one week on August 13th!

Best of luck!  And if you don't win - run out and buy one of SJ's CD's anyway - you won't be sorry!

I just spent quite some time checking out her songs -- awesome! My very favorite one is Firebird's Child. :) By the way, Jen, thanks so much for sharing all the photos from your outing -- truly magical! And I can't wait to see you in your costume next year. :)

Thanks for the chance to win this great CD. If you like medieval music, be sure to check out Corvus Corax. The singing part first starts at 0.27 -- just to let you know. I saw Corvus Corax performing live at a medieval festival a couple of years ago -- fantastic! The energy when they play -- unbelievable.

Hugs,
Birgit

I adore SJ Tucker! I discovered her thanks to her cover song and video on YouTube called "Playing D&D". It featured members of Dead Gentlemen Productions who make awesome geek movies and web serials. Instant love!

I would love to own a copy of Blessings. One day I will have all of her albums. She's just so much fun!
