Greetings and welcome to the first Folkbyte newsletter. I have news on the writing front, an excerpt from my preliminary research for The Songwriter's's Guide to Folklore, and the first monthly Folkbyte newsletter video to share. Onward!
Shatter and Rise
A young woman braves the wrath of a winter goddess to learn a lost magic. Another throws the tarot for an unrequited love and finds only a mirror in the cards. Two sisters make a terrible choice to preserve one of them from harm. Shatter and Rise brings together three ballads from C.S. MacCath's repertoire of original songs to address the resilience, the heartache, and the power of magical women. Hit "play," curl your hands around a tisane, and be transported.
