Special Guests for 2016!

Kellianna

Kellianna is an American Neo-Celtic singer and songwriter internationally renowned for her powerful performance of song and chant inspired by myth, magic, sacred places and ancient times. With guitar and vocals she brings to life the stories and sagas of the Gods and Goddesses. With frame drum and chant she honors the Earth and the Ancestors with primal drumming and soaring vocals. Since 2003 Kellianna has performed her music in 9 countries on 3 continents with regular visits to Canada, the United Kingdom, Western Europe and Australia.

In early 2014 she decided to move forward with the creation of a book trilogy inspired by the song “Warrior Queen” from her 2004 debut album, Lady Moon. The song is about a queen who dies on the battlefield, with the story beginning at her death. The “Warrior Queen Chronicles” is a series of three books telling of this queen’s life, with the story in the books ending where the song begins. After meeting Kaalii Cargill in Australia in October 2013, and then again in the United Kingdom in the summer of 2014 where she picked up the author’s latest book, “Daughters of Time”, Kellianna knew that she had found the perfect person to help her bring her vision of the Warrior Queen’s story to life.

The Magical Druid

Based out of Columbus, “to us, The Magical Druid isn’t just a storefront on a corner, an online shopping site, or even a business, really. Instead, it’s a way of “being:” we live our lives as magical Druids, seeking the sacred in nature, deepening our work, and building relationships with others (both human and spirit).

Both Seamus and Michael are trained in the study programs of Ár nDraíocht Féin: A Druid Fellowship (ADF), an international fellowship devoted to creating a public tradition of Neopagan Druidry. Both have been deeply active in the local ADF Grove, Three Cranes Grove, ADF, as well as the Columbus Sanctuary, and done work both academically and functionally in other traditions as well. We’ve built strong connections to the community around us, and we really hope to give back to those who have given us so much.”
