We invite you to join us as the Voices of the Light Tribe in our first four day gathering this year; in Glastonbury over the June Solstice, 20th – 23rd June as we come together in Unity and Community.
Open to All! Our Glastonbury Voices of the Light Tribe gathering has 23 facilitators and four co-hosts. Together we create our collective transmission of DNA or Light Body Activations, Light Language activations, Sacred Initiations, Sisterhood of the Rose ceremonial goddess circles, Ascended Master teachings, Angelic Overlightings and channellings, Lemurian or Atlantean and ancient Egyptian timelines of self-mastery tools, unity grid/stargate activations and Voice Alchemy Ignitions. It is simply magical. Two groups present each day, and it is truly a most wonderful, magical way to co-create, network and expand our Light.
Hira’s transmission will be the first day, Thursday June 20th at 11:00 – 13:00 UK time, called “Sisterhood of the Rose”. There will be Temple Initiations of the Rose, transmitted by Anrita Melchizedek, Chloe Mercer, Claire Stone and Hira.
Voices of the Light Tribe assists us in the celebration of our Divinity and Soul purpose through the conscious intention of expanding our gifts in an awakening world; through gatherings and conferences, online telewebinars and summits, networking and Divinely inspired co-creative opportunities, and Overlighted by the Illumination of our Beloved I Am Presence, the Ascended Realms and Galactic Councils.
We are perfectly designed to fulfil our Life’s mission, living fifth dimensionally, and part of our Soul’s calling is coming together in co-creation as the Light of God we are, whilst celebrating our deep connection to our brothers and sisters walking the path of Love.
It is truly such a glorious moment as the New Earth Blueprints come online and show us how to co-create multidimensionally with one another and at the deeper levels of our beingness with manifesting abundance for all.
Sharing, evolving and expanding our gifts, we gather as the Wayshowers, Priests and Priestesses, Goddesses and Divine channels, Sisterhood of the Rose and Brotherhood of the Light, Galactic Councils, earthseeds and starseeds. Co-creating New Earth we anchor the Christos-Sophia Light codes, and ignite the three-fold Flame of Power, Love and Wisdom within our loving hearts and within the hearts of all awakening and awakened Souls so all may experience the original Divine Blueprints of Creation.
We activate the Galactic frequencies of the Starseed codes and Angelic Templates through our DNA, the Stargates and Portals and Unity Grids of Light, and stand as the Light Councils for New Earth. We experience our inner plane initiations; our Rainbow and Diamond Light Bodies and deepen into Soul embodiment. Revering the Divine Mother in all her forms, we come together as One Heart and One Unified Field of Light as we have done before in numerous Golden Ages.
Creating the symphony of heaven on earth, we feel the collective Power of our Divinity as our Hearts beat as One. We recognize the wisdom we have and hold in the knowing that our voices and frequency are important as we amplify the radiant field of Divine Love around Mother Earth.
We have amazing gifts and qualities as starseeds and earthseeds, wayshowers, grid keepers and gate keepers to share with one another and the world with our magnificent Light and loving hearts. As the Councils of Light upon this sacred earth we further assist in lifting the hearts of all humanity into the next level of their Soul’s Forward Evolution.

“Felt myself going into a deep relaxed meditative stage. Connected with dolphins, whales, unicorns, my galactic family and many other beautiful beings of light. Felt a heart opening, release after release of emotions shifting and moving me forwards. Felt symbols being placed into my hands and heart. Showers of golden stars, a circle of unicorns, sacred geometry, colour and sound. WOW, WOW, WOW!! Loved the Galactic Star Heart training.

“Jeanette, thank you dear sister. It’s only the end of day 1 and I have already felt a massive expansion in my being. I have opened myself up to multi-dimensional frequencies of the highest and to Archangel Orion (this was a profound reconnection for me). I felt the walls of resistance melt away as the Love from my Galactic family stretched through time and space to lovingly assist me. I have leveled up in so many ways and even opened up to channel a new form of light language. Bless you sweet 👼!! Xxx” Maria L, Owner of the Healing Key, Long Beach Feb 11th 2019

“Gran Espectáculo de Música, Cante y Baile”
CalleJondo is the exciting new flamenco show which takes you on a journey from the purest flamenco traditions to contemporary fusion to the wacky and unorthodox. The name CalleJondo comes from the Spanish words “calle” (meaning street), “callejón” (meaning alleyway) and “jondo” (meaning the purest and most serious styles of flamenco).
Artistic directors Rebeca, Martín and Josie met while performing in the streets of Seville. Drawn together by a mutual interest in learning from the others’ varied and unusual artistic backgrounds – Rebeca from a flamenco and international family, coming from a background of circus, music and sports, Martín from a gypsy flamenco family steeped in tradition as well as eletronic music production, and Josie who’s parents were ballet dancers and who herself trained and worked extensively as a contemporary dancer – soon united and began performing together.
They have already performed at several venues in Seville and Malaga while continuing to experiment with new ideas and try them out on the unsuspecting spectators of their street performances. Tonight they present to you their latest work which draws on their shared knowledge of the deepest flamenco traditions and infuses it with contemporary influences and the power of street arts to make a truly unforgettable experience.
Damh returns to the Assembly Rooms for his annual concert. Come along for song, dance, and community.
His inspiration comes from the ancient myths and legends of the British Isles and Ireland; from King Arthur to Taliesin; from the Welsh Mabinogion to old British folk customs.
Damh has always believed that his job is to entertain his audience and take them on a journey through the old stories and myths of this land. His audiences leave his concerts having been fully engaged by Damh, and with a deeper understanding of this land’s ancient heritage.
He has performed extensively on the spiritual festival circuit in the UK, USA, Australia and Europe, and is as much at home playing to an intimate audience of 50 to playing to 1500+ at the larger venues.
On the Summer Solstice 2010 Damh was initiated as the new Pendragon of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, taking over from artist Will Worthington who has served the Order as Pendragon for the previous 19 years.
The Dolmen are a relentless organic Celtic rock band born from the county of Dorset, England. Their mission has been to infiltrate the minds and souls of a growing audience with their tribal rhythms and powerful spiritual renditions.
See them live here on Youtube…
The Dolmen was founded by prolific song writer & lead singer, Taloch Jameson and after a few changes over the years, the current line up has been solid since 2010 when drummer, Chris Harris, joined The Dolmen experience. Josh Elliott, lead guitarist, joined The Dolmen family in 2009 and Kayleigh Marchant, bass guitar & vocals, became a member in 2008. After breaking into Europe The Dolmen then found Anja Novotny, flutes & keyboard, in 2015. And in 2018 Sebastiaan Hidding, fiddle, joined the band
The strength of The Dolmen is in its pure organic feel. To be able to react spontaneously to the way that the mood and the spirit takes you when on the stage. To be one with the audience. Although, it is not only their relentless on-stage energy that sets apart, it is also that kind of organic freedom, last experienced in the late 60’s and early 70’s. In December 2018 the Wytches & Cunningfolk album was released which continues the magick and the artistic style of the in 2016 released Nuada album and takes it to a higher level. Wytches & Cunningfolk is at present nominated for the Dutch Fantasy Awards 2018 and The Dolmen have won Best Band in the 2018 UK Pagan Events.
The Dolmen continue to grow as they continue their journey into Europe and around the UK.

It’s hard to describe what the music of Warsaw Village Band is: roots, folk, wolrd, ethno…
For sure it’s modern music, played by modern people, inspired by tradition for this and next generations.
Hear them on Youtube here
Without any doubt, Warsaw Village Band is currently one of the most important and well known music groups, and an ambassador of European culture!
This is a short story of a band who is a living proof that Eastern Europe can also brings good and unique elements to the global village – in spite of history and conditions.
From young enthusiasts of Polish roots and natural vibes to mature mind musicians, conscientious creators.
Formed in 1997 as group of friends, after few years of presence on Polish folk stage, and recording “Hop Sa sa” album (1997) WVB started international career in 2002 when German label Jaro released their second album “People’s Spring” (2001). According to Urlich Balss (Jaro’s owner), reaction for album was one of the biggest surprises in the history of company. From unknown Polish band, WVB gets into the main World Music stage!
In 2004 Warsaw Village Band won very prestigious BBC Radio 3 Award for World Music as “best newcomer”, the same year European Broadcasting Union award for the best folk recording.
Also next studio album “Uprooting” (2004), was great success. In Poland awarded by “Fryderyk” – the biggest Polish award – best folk album. and in US gets into the final 10 albums nominated to Grammy Award (world music).
Year later Warsaw Village Band recorded part of the soundtrack for the computer game Myst IV: Revelation. Music was composed by Jack Wall and Peter Gabriel.
But main power of band are live performances. WVB had played more than 400 concerts on 4 continents, more than 30 countries. From Tokyo and Taipei through Moscow, Tel Aviv, Algier, London, Paris, Lisbon to New York, Vancouver, Los Angeles and Seattle.
Hundreds of clubs, festivals, stages, hotels, flights, people, fans…
Always and everywhere enthusiastic welcomed! Press, media, journalists…
Even New York Times describe WVB as one of the most important bands of Wolrd Music stage in article: “This is the sound of globalization!”
In 2006 BBC made documentary movie about Warsaw Village Band – “Journey”. It was one of four parts of series called “European Roots” – WVB among such a stars as Mariza was choosen by producers from BBC to be filmed.
Year 2007 brings to the band new member – daughter of Maja and Wojtek – Lena, and this year was a very welcomed year of relaxation and resting for members. But it was not waisted!
In 2008 band composed music for theatrical performance in Poland and released 2 albums.
“Upmixing” with remix versions of “Uprooting” and 4th studio album of band – “Infinity” (2009)
In 2009 WVB won their 2nd Fryderyk Award – the best folk album of 2008 – “Upmixing”.

The Oroonies – A Brief History –
The Oroonies were spawned in the Spring of 1981 in a green sucking pool, high on a bog-strewn mountain top in the Western reaches of Ireland. The line up featured Ron Noden (drums) Mr Hinty (keyboards) Geek (bass) Boris E Stiahl (guitar).
The band promptly split upand proceeded to incarnate in mutant forms such as The Datura Pig Band, The Mouth of Nodenand finally in early 1984 as the ferocious Immoral Minority. The line up now consisted of Ron and Boris (guitars/vocals) Geek (bass) Tanya Horn (drums). Living in caravans in a grey desert of rock and later on a flat plain of bog the ImmMins were forced to invade other peoples homes, with or without permission, in order to vent their frenzy and pursue The Bad Smell. A first gig was performed and brought to a premature halt by the distressed landlord. “The Woods Are Alive with the Smell of his Coming” and “They Don’t Want Us Around” were both conceived during this seminal period.
The Immoral minority promptly split up. Boris (guitar/vocal) Tanya (bass/drums) united with Hinty (keyboards) in an unrestrained spouting that saw the basis of Exalt The Horn c74 and tracks such as Yahoo and Word Of Mouth on like Yeast We Rise. Ron appeared on occasion to give good gitar on Questions (Lies)/3 guitars. The entire pack of Geek, Hinty, Boris, Tanya and Ron united for one evening: the result was cacophony and impressed by their efforts The Orunes resolved to carry on regardless of difficulties with members living in different countries, which had always been responsible for the erratic dispersal of the band.
In the summer of 1985 the band celebrated 40 days and nights of rain in West Ireland with more musical spasms that combined with previous dribbles of 84 to make up The Woods Are Alive tape.
Then during the Christmas of 85 the unthinkable happened. The Oroonies set off on a mini tour of London and the South West in feedback stricken alliance with My Bloody Valentine. The die was cast: adrift in the heady aromas of live performance the band careered through a feverish welter of free festivals and squat gigs, oblivious to the sensibilities of assembled onlookers.
1986 saw the arrival of Breda on flute, contributing to tracks on Like Yeast We Rise and in 1987 the Ee I Ee I O cassette ushered in improved recording quality (can you tell the difference?) The Woods Are Alive 12″ was recorded in summer 87 and released New Year 88, receiving one play from John Peel. Various additional percussionists and drummers came and went but the band had settled into BorisBredaGeekHintyRonTanya as a chewed core. Whale and the wind recorded in 1988 heralded a new era of Oroonimusic, with less feedback, shouting and excessive randomness. Steadily the cacophony subsided in favour of Arabic and world tunes in 1989 gigs. In 1990 the band recorded Of Hoof and Horn for Demi Monde (which was not released until 1992) and it was at this time Boris threw in the towel, unable to cope with rehearsal , melody and reasonable musical behaviour. The band continued gigging through 1990 playing a tight set of album material. A new band The Cheapsuit Oroonies appeared playing strictly acoustic fo;k and world music featuring Ron, Breda, Jo (violin joining Oroonies in 1990) and Geek. The Oroonies gradually puttered to a stop and no longer existed in 1992. However it would be premature to state that the night of the living Orooni will be no more. Dark thoughts lurk in curlicue minds, whispers and rumours arise and subside, nothing is interesting save to see what happens next …….
…and indeed, so it has come to pass, The Oroonies resurrected again in 2012 as a trio of Joie, Boris and Tanya, large as life and twice as confusing. Inappropriate recordings have surfaced as CDs comprising Oroonies Undone, Oroonies are Next Door, Prodding, Nobody Understands and There Are Many Ways. Tunes are also scattered through the Interweb on Soundcloud and Youtube. And gigs are happening once more, to general disorientation and happiness. The Oroonies train is rumbling on…

This November, join the Wild Women Retreats sisterhood and deep-feminine activist Rooh Star to get earthy. In the evening of the year, energy returns to the hidden places – where it continues to nourish and transform from the depths. At this time we choose to honour the ground, our planet, and the cycles that sustain us.
Through songs, soil, celebration, and ceremony we will share a day of connection with spirit, self and community.
We are thrilled to welcome ‘The Hobbit Priestess’ Rooh Star as our special guest. Rooh says…
“I’m a hedge dweller, living on the wild edges, living in community. I’ve turned aside from the well worn path and found my own way, a way blessed by nettles and silvery mugwort, ancient oak trees and blooming hawthorns. This path has taken me wandering through England with a handcart, dedicating myself to Love and the Earth. At present I’m living in a small low impact community, dreaming of more travelling adventures and learning how to pull a wagon with my handsome moustached pony Winston. Along my way I’ve been writing songs , for pleasure , for medicine and for remembering. I’m excited to be sharing some of these songs with you, along with tales from my journey.”
If you need accommodation there are lots of amazing places to stay in the heart of Glastonbury and sacred sites like the Chalice Well Gardens and Glastonbury Tor are not to be missed – not to mention the cafes and shopping!

Touch the Earth are a Tribal Folk Band that draw their inspiration from the natural world around them, their music has been described as: ‘A vibration of pure energy gathers one up, the flutes, violin, guitar, didge, drummers and singers are part of this surrealism – the essence is pure spirit.’ – The Holistic Channel

NIGEL SHAW & CAROLYN HILLYER
Winter concert with Carolyn and Nigel including a rich weave of music from the new album.
“We create music albums and concerts, books and paintings, traditional flutes and drums, women’s workshops and instrument making weekends, small festivals and gentle gatherings on our ancient farm on Dartmoor, Devon…
We began to sense the arrival of this album a few years before its first song reached our door. After many travels in Arctic terrains, north has become scratched onto our bones and wrapped inside our music; over and again we have found ourselves dreaming, composing and writing about timeless ice, reindeer souls and the resonances of taiga and tundra. But the concept of north has always meant so much more than the geographical compass point or a turn within the flow of seasons and we wanted to explore north as a state of being; to ask ‘what is the north we can give you?… We are delighted to announce the release of our new album. We have been on a meandering journey during the winter and spring, seeking and discovering threads of tender myth and feral dream to anchor into this music. A couple of the songs have surprised us by their strange intensity, others have managed to be a close reflection of what we had in our hearts when we wrote them, our whisky song has made us laugh… So we are now dancing on our toes towards the summer with these new songs in our arms, ready to be released into your ears! We hope you enjoy them.
