About The Event
This class explores occulted meanings lurking in the shadows of the British folk song tradition. Hannah Sanders looks at five songs, uncovering their motifs of magic and folklore: spells, the Otherworld, the ritual year, enchanted animals and shapeshifting. She teaches attendees how to listen deeply, leads discussion, and guides meditations. She leads the class in a knot spell, a herbal enchantment and a written charm, to bring music's themes into hands-on workings. Join us if you want to go deep into the powers of the folk song tradition.
