Songs around the BOnFire – what you heard in our digital festival

We’re still blown away by the amazing response we had to BOnFire (Beltane Online Fire Festival) last week. Our thanks go to all of you who joined us to mark Beltane in the virtual realm, and to everyone who left us a heartfelt message in the days after.

We’ve seen lots of questions about the music that was performed at our online festival – some of you are even speaking about using the recordings to learn some Gaelic! We love that idea, and have collected the songs together below (with lyrics where they are available) to help you do that.

We’ll include the drums in another post, so keep a look out for that if you’re looking for a second drum party!
