~ Illumination Tales ~
Illumination Tales by Dalrymple MacAlpin is a triptych of stories revolving around the Irish poet & warrior Fionn Mac Cumhaill, the Welsh bard & seer Taliesin & the legendary Germanic hero Sigurd the dragon-slayer. In each of these stories a youth undergoes a unique transformation, elevating from the mundane level of society into the sacred liminal realm of the God’s.
Illumination Tales marks the first of Dalrymple MacAlpin's storytelling recordings & will feature poetic verses from each story sung in their original language with harp accompaniment. This project is the result of many years of study & empirical gnosis into the world of mythic illumination.
Illumination Tales Part One is expected to be released in the spring of 2020.
Dalrymple MacAlpin presents excerpts from Make Believe and Illumination Tales, part two, The Salmon Of Knowledge. Performed August 9th 2019 at the Hollow Hill.
