Samhain Night
(words & music by Imbolc Fire)

More than shadows here tonight
Flicker in the firelight
More than echoes in the wind
More than breezes touch our skin

Pass the horn and sing the praise
Of those who walked in older days
Stand before the fire bright
Hail the Dead this Samhain night

Hail the Ancestors with me
Hail the Friends and Family
Hail the Spirits, Hail the Souls
Hail the night that makes us whole

Draw them here across the Veil
Sing their praise and tell their tale
See the faces in the flames
Hear the voices, call the names

Pour libations to the ground
Fill the night with joyous sound
Stand before the fire bright
Hail the Dead this Samhain night

Hail the Ancestors with me
Hail the Friends and Family
Hail the Spirits, Hail the Souls
Hail the night that makes us whole

They live in more than memory
The Veil so thin that we can see
The friends and loves that we long for
Are waiting on the other shore

Remember why we gather here
At the closing of the year
Stand before the fire bright
Hail the Dead this Samhain night

Samhain Night
(by Imbolc Fire)

Audience Count: 24,590




The Story...

The lyrics for Samhain Night were written the morning after a beautiful Samhain ritual with a private group. The echoes of "Hail to the Ancestors! Hail to the Dead!" rang in my mind; the lingering touch of connection to those beyond the Veil remained long after the circle was closed. I wrote the lyrics in a single pass, trying to find a way to share the beauty and mystery of the ritual. The culture of the United States tends to shunt death to the side - we refuse to acknowledge it, we cover it over with pretense and pithy sayings that ultimately do not touch the well of grief, love and connection that mingle when someone crosses over. At their most profound and powerful, Samhain rituals redress that balance. They give us a space to honor not only our recent dead but the long line of life, beauty and vitality that is our ancestral heritage.

The lyrics languished in a file for some time before they were given a musical form. The members of Imbolc Fire, a studio project, are also in Cassandra Syndrome, a touring operatic metal band. Amusingly, the words were put to music while Cassandra Syndrome was waiting to be interviewed on a local radio station. We were sitting in the radio station parking lot, and we happened to have a guitar, the lyrics, and some free time. The rest, as they say, is history. I hope you enjoy the song.

Recorded: 2012 - 13, Flaming Spider Studio
Guests/Players: Chris Kackley, guitar and bass
Jay Jericho, percussion
Irene Jericho, vocals

Technical Notes: Acoustic guitars, electric bass, midi percussion, vocals

Artist Profile: Imbolc Fire is the Pagan Folk Rock studio project of three members of Cassandra Syndrome: Irene Jericho, Chris Kackley and Jay Jericho. The project channels earthy spirituality and mysticism into acoustic, hand-percussion driven musical journeys. Spanning from jubilant to deeply introspective, this group offers the listener a moving tapestry of sonic experiences.
