|Bardic Circle Featuring SONA...
(by Joe Credit III, Joe Credit Jr., Beltana)
Audience Count: 10,193
This song was first played in front of an audience at CMA Beltane 2001 amid a mass of twirling fire and fireworks... a great way to start out the tour! It became the "theme" for that summer... and ended up being our finale... usually accompanied by additional drummers and percussionists of all "species." It was a summer to remember... lots of new growth and changes. But to let you know what the actualy story is behind the song... I'll let Joe tell you in his own words... and you must make a visit to the mp3 site to see the actual story...

Artist Profile: In the Hot Summer months of 2000, three people met at Brushwood Folklore Center in New York, the home of the Sirius Rising and Starwood festivals that have been going on for years. Among them were a singer, a vocalist, and a mandolin player. This father and son duo from Kansas combined with a single female vocalist from Missouri came together to form SONA. It was realized at once that these three had been searching for each other, and that the magick that was apparent between the three of them musically was rare.
At Sirius Rising and then at Starwood, two back to back festivals that encompass a plethora of dimensions and a diverse smattering of musical talent, the trio came together as much as possible to play and share original songs. They noticed that they got along very well and had great fun working out their tunes together, as if it were the most natural thing in the Universe for them to be together. They wrote several songs together, took them up to the bardic pavilion show on the main stage, and played them for an enthusiastic audience. They played at the tavern late at night, and after the gathering, went their separate ways, promising to get together again soon. A few weeks later, they rejoined at the Festival of Tara in Kansas to rekindle their connection by writing more songs, and were invited shortly thereafter by Trickster from Loke E. Coyote to come to Texas and do the Austin and Houston Pagan Pride day events, and do some work on his rock opera, "Druid Four Winds" Texas was a huge success. They decided to take it further and planned to get together to do another CD, in addition to the live CD they put together with Loke E. Coyote from the Pagan Pride day events.

(words & music by Joe Credit III, Joe Credit Jr., Beltana)
When I was a boy I went into the woods for three days
I carved a spoon from a tree branch with a buck knife.
In a lightning flash the world disappeared
Until there was nothing left but me and my spoon
I carried my spoon to the waters of the earth
And I used it to stir in the mud
I spun my spoon in a miniscule vortex
But it only swirled whenever I moved
walked to the sea to see the horizon
I swam out to where the water meets the sky
When I reached there I took out my spoon
And I stirred up the water and the sky
