“Legend has it that Celtic Monks used a specially prepared mixture of ashes obtained from the burning of the boughs of nine sacred trees – Alder, Ash, Birch, Elm, Hazel, Oak, Rowan, Willow and Yew. The use of the ash in ceremonies was important, but for the monk, the collection of the individual woods was an act of worship in itself. ” – mattsteady.com
Matt Steady is a multi-instrumentalist who is inspired by many aspects of life. His music crosses genres. His most recent record Nawglan is a celebration of ancient mystery and our deep roots as part of the nature of Earth. Each piece is a sonic dive into a vibrant musical sacred space related to a specific tree. This is not background music, it’s foreground music.
