Thread Name: The Pagan Alternative. What's the music?
Subject: The Pagan Alternative. What's the music?
Must admit, I'm not really up on "Paganism" although it sounds quite interesting. For years I knew a musician/travel agent, who was a "witch". I was fascinated with her conversation, but chickened out when I was "invited to learn more about her practices". Not for fear of being "converted" (I'm a devout questioner, that's all) but just in case my "wise-ass side" might accidentally insult one of her friends.

So..I have some questions:

Does the term cover many groups and practices?

Does the "Morris-Dancing Culture" REALLY have anything to do with Paganism?

Are there any "ABSOLUTE" beliefs similar to Christianity or Islam, where it boils down to a "faith over facts" kind of thing?

Are there any prominent (practising) Pagans in the world of entertainment, politics, sports, etc?

Other than "Nonesuch" which I've played at many an Earth Day celebration, what's the music?

Thanks

Rick (obviously in a questioning mood this Holiday)
