Two thousand years ago the Celts were driven off of mainland Europe.
All Celts? No, one band bravely resisted the influx of modern pop and rock and found their own place in the world of music.
Armed with nothing but their voices and instruments, Rapalje is raiding clubs and halls far and wide, looking for victims to carry away on a musical journey through Scottish Highlands, Irish valleys, taverns and inns.
I’m sitting here, I really got nothing, only a rental car and my drone and my phone.
It’s also a very nice test if it’s even possible to do a livestream from the most remote area we can find right here in In Spain.
I’m sitting here on the stones Lights from a car and now I can relax and start my live stream in Guadalest. With a beautiful castle over there. I saw a nice lake A really Blue Lake.
I got your comments. I see you I see you there. I’m not all alone. The Internet is very good at some point but very bad when you’re remote like here in the middle of the mountains. I want to talk about my trip here in Spain, I’m on holiday And I made some really beautiful videos,
We have something new.
I’m trying it here during my holidays here in Spain and that’s this very lightweight bag. I just was trying if this is any good to travel with because it’s It’s only fabric it’s only cotton with ropes on it and I was using as a backpack. I just put it on our on our shop on internet on our home page So if you have someone to travel around with this backpack from Rapalje. I had really heavy stuff in it I really packed it full of things.
It is a special holiday here in this area it’s the reason that all shops are closed And that’s the reason that it’s there’s really nothing here in this area in Spain right now To be honest: I don’t feel very secure here and if something happens, well This is where I am: The worst situation I could think about doing a livestream for you
There are eight patrons who subscribed for patron for $20 a month I would like to send you t-shirt in any color. You can choose your own color And these patrons are Michael Witt, Lorna Wilbur, Nina Simon ,Simone Baumgarten, Penny Carlsen, Bjorn van Rijszen, Ernarapaljefan Kraaij and kalotte. I will ask you for an address you get a link where you can find your own color in the T-shirts we will order for you. Design will be the same. Print will be the same, color print will be the same. You can choose your own color t-shirt and then I will send it to you. So you get your own special designed color T-shirt at your wish!
Be easy and free when you’re traveling with me, bye!
I would like to have some ideas about the new T-shirts we are going to design. Because you have to wear them. Or you may want to wear them. I need to know what you like.
We are going to design a T-shirt you actually want to wear. A T-shirt you like. First thing is the shape of the T-shirt and the fabric.
No matter if you’re a man or a woman. You can choose for a V neck.
We need to pick a colour that you choose the most and that you want. Most bands have black, most people want black. We are selling much more black T-shirts than any other colour. In the summer we are going to have a new colour for sure It would be nice if we could have your own T-shirt. Your own colour. That’s actually not a bad idea. To have your own design T-shirt. That’s something for Patreon. If you want your own T-shirt. Something I can think about for Patreon: Your own colour, your own print A very special made T-shirt and we send over.
Do you want the front and back? With, for example, a text. My idea is to put a logo on it. Either the newest logo or an older logo. Or both logos. Please comment on that.
I think this colour would also look amazing on a very dark brown for example. For now I want to make the T-shirt for our show theatre show “Into Folk”. So when you want to buy the CD you get the T-shirt and we get a package. You’ll get many things. So please write in the comments.
What shape of T-shirt? Which colour Print? on the back or the front?
Or both Old logo? New logo? And what about the text? For example: “I’m Into Folk” Or another one. On the front? Or on the back? On which colour of T-shirt?
So give us ideas. Write the comments as much as you can.
One big thing to help us out is to be a patron on patreon.com. And you will help me out to get the lights to run the studio. To get the gear. To make Rapalje Shows. And to do all the work. And because of our patrons I’m really never going to quit this. And do a live stream and edit then for YouTube as well.
There are some patrons who are really generous. I really like to thank some special patrons: Michael Witt, Bjorn van Rijszen, Simone Baumgartner, Lorna Wilbur, Penny Carlsen and kalotte. These are the patrons that really deserve to get their names on the live streams and Rapalje Show edits from YouTube. Thank you very much!
A very good text for a T-shirt, I know: “Be easy and free” Bye, see you next time Next week on Facebook live And every Sunday on YouTube.
Imagine yourself in a completely different world at Castlefest,
the Fantasy festival of the Netherlands. A fest for young and old, where, as soon as you enter the gates, you find yourself in the Other World. Castlefest is a total experience with lots of music, fantasy writers, themed catering, medieval crafts and a large market which offers everything a fantasy fan is looking for.
A large amount of bands are performing at the various festival stages, from Pagan Folk to World Music, from Medieval Rock to Indie. In short, for each music lover his own!
Castlefest characterizes itself by a unique ambiance. This makes that regular visitors are looking forward to the next edition a year in advance. It creates a feeling where you find yourself in a completely different world, causing a daze and homesickness for weeks after the event took place.
The Castlefest-feeling is difficult to define, but something everyone needs to experience themselves…
