Summer Solstice
(words and music by Fritz Jung & Wren Walker)

Summer solstice, got the heat
A life in change, feel the need
Toast the Faeries, drink the mead
Cast the circle, you will succeed
Lovers focused, the passion swells
Send it out now, work the spells
Ya got ta wonder, what ya see
Lust abound, Midsummers' eve

On MidSummer, by mid day
Flowers everywhere,
don't you wanna say
That by MidSummer,
when your love's in bloom
Two hearts shinnin'
beneath the Honey Moon

A projection, a world away
Ya gotta' sing and really play
Dance the music of the Sidhe
We've got it made now, don't ya see
Starfire burning, strike this blade
From this power, a sword was made
Held in truth, High & Strong
Excaliber right the wrong

On MidSummer, by mid day
Flowers everywhere,
don't you wanna say
That by MidSummer,
when your love's in bloom
Two hearts shinnin'
beneath the Honey Moon

Flower Faeries, dance in the breeze
Deep in the woods, amongst the trees
A celebration, for us all
Sweet Vivian, standing tall

On MidSummer, by mid day
Flowers everywhere,
don't you wanna say
That by MidSummer,
when your love's in bloom
Two hearts shinnin'
beneath the Honey Moon

For June 2001 I am honored to offer a timely holiday tune entitled Summer Solstice...

This tune was written "on demand" in 1995, a week before our mid-summer solstice celebration in Salem, Massachusetts and then performed live with Michael and Therese Pendragon in Circle. Those were good times and the audience was "merciful" of what was a newly written tune.

I have always liked the way this tune came out. Perhaps it's the "on top of the beat" feel of the drum part, perhaps it's the driving rhythm guitar part... I am not sure, but I am quite happy with the way this tune feels. Summer Solstice is one of two Pagan holiday songs that I wrote during these sessions (look for a Samhain song this October) and I project that i will, someday, write tunes for the remaining 6 holidays.

Lyrics: The words to this tune were dashed off quickly for the performance but ultimately tweaked up by Wren It is worth noting that the line "Toast the Faeries" means to celebrate NOT "Toast like marshmallows". Thanks Wren for the important words that you added to this piece.

Music: Instrumentation was pretty strait forward and simply contains; two guitar parts (on the '64 Martin in the photo above), a bass hook executed on an Ibanez Rb800 and the drums were recorded live buy yours truly playing the part on my computer desk and then later replacing the "thumps" with hot drum samples.

Summer Solstice was a labor of love and created for the Salem community. This tune was one of the last created and recorded for the Celtic Feast of the Dead sessions and one of my personal faves. Take it with our love and have a wonderful Summer Solstice!
