Imbolg Song: Brighid, Keep Burnin'


Imbolg is and has been for many years my chance to renew my relationship with the only Celtic deity in my own regular pantheon, Brighid. It took me a while to get to know her, but her values appealed to me, especially in her inspiration aspect. And boy, did she come through this time: As I sat down to write, what came out was very different from the sort of thing I normally come up with, and in my view at least delightful.

Musically, this one is a jaunty swing tune, demanding a steady beat with some tasteful flavor around it. Guitarists will probably be happier capo'd up a fret so you can use D-G-A and the still-awkward-Bb chord forms instead of the awkward Eb-Ab-Bb in its written key. It's also worth noting that the Cb7 chord is also known as B7, but for music-theory reasons is notated as the flat VI rather than the sharp V.

That means, in short, you can use them yourself and your grove, and play the song to your heart's content both in private and in public, but must give credit where credit is due, and if you're planning on selling something involving this song we need to talk about that first.
