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.

Folkbyte Newsletter May 2024

Greetings, All!

Welcome to the May 2024 Folkbyte newsletter. The clock is ticking on my dissertation defence, which will likely be scheduled for early June. So with apologies, there will be no audio updates in May or June for my work on The Songwriter's Guide to Folklore. Nevertheless, I do have some interesting news to share this month. Onward!

"Magic Systems in the Making"

I've just heard from the SFWA Nebula conference committee that I'm slated to be a panellist this year for "Magic Systems in the Making." I'll get to talk about supernatural belief, charms, curses, magic in folklore, etc. It's an online-only panel, so everyone who registers for the conference can attend. I'm looking forward to it! Here's the conference schedule: 2024 Nebula Conference Schedule
