LISTEN Traveler’s Dream (MM110):listen to Maggie Sansone’s LUGHNASA:http://www.maggiesmusic.com/products/mm110.html
The summer solstice around June 21 is a major celestial event … the longest day and the shortest night of the year. It’s a time for celebration among lovers of Celtic music and mythology. Sol + stice derives from Latin words meaning “sun” + “to stand still.” As the days lengthen, the sun rises higher and higher until it seems to stand still in the sky. The Northern Hemisphere celebrates in June, but the people on the Southern half of the earth have their longest summer day in December. Maggie Sansone’s CD ( MM110) A Traveler’s Dream includes a set of music called: The Lughnasa Set: The Green Fields of Woodford / Summertime / A Morning in Summer.
