S.J. TUCKER / Witchy Ways: An October Mix-tape (2013)

Just in time for Xmas, here’s an October Mix-tape.  It was actually released in time for Hallowe’en but I'm slow like that.  It’s a collection of songs from Tucker's back catalogue (and 2 new songs) chosen by the artist herself.
She has a beautiful and strong voice able to channel the oral tradition of storytelling into complementary music that ranges from the whimsical to the enchanting.  It celebrates the Wiccian / Pagan side of Samhain, not the commercial and church-friendly version used to 'educate' the kids.

Songs of Note: Kashkash; Firebird's Child

4 hymns in the glade out of 5
