Thread Name: BS: More pagan stuff
Subject: RE: BS: More pagan stuff
What a thread ! I guess there are lots of pagans watching from the side lines, I know of a couple who come here but haven't joined in.

As a quick note, I hope people don't leave thinking all pagans are wiccans, or indeed that all witches are wiccans.

I know of no pagans who claim that the music they enjoy has a continual history to "The Old Religion", and I know very few pagans who claim to have any connection, or indeed knowledge of, "The Old Religion". The music I enjoy happens to be folk music, and that kind of works well around camp fires with groups of people. Lots of people can join in with a lot of songs, there's plenty of scope for trying new things with old tunes, and the range of instruments that can be played to compliment each other is wide enough to encourage anyone with any musical leanings the opportunity to learn something simple and share it with others. So, folk music suits pagans well.

Along side of the music, there's a lot of story telling going on. Old stories, new stories, good stories, crap stories. It's a great place to be.
