Here at the Pagan-Musings Podcast Channel we love our musicians and we love to share their music with our listeners.

Heather Dale’s ambitious campaign to not only raise funds for a DVD but to tour her Celtic Avalon workshop is well under way. Frenchy and the Punk are also working on a campaign for their newest musical contribution.
