Daygan’s Solo Debut – “Musician Magician Music Magick”
A soundtrack of this time of conscious awakening. Daygan’s debut solo album called,
“Musician Magician Music Magick” -Celtic Spacefolk with a Bardic message.
A bard of Avalon, Daygan has been described as a “one man mandolin orchestra“
He plays traditional music inspired by the magick of the ancient British Isles ,France and Brittany,with some melodies that go all the way back to medieval times as well as compositions of his own.
By layering the music of his mandolin with the help of a loop station he fuses celtic rooted music in a contemporary way, adding to it his own unique magick styling and rhythmic underchords.
Daygan plays magickal music from the heart. His love of music magick and the ancient land is captured in the melodic musical melodies within his tunes…Daygan has a solo show but can also be hired as a duo,trio or whole band called “Daygan and the music magic experience”
Daygan also plays with and is a founder member of the band “Dragonsfly” and he is a core member of the band “Celtech”.
“Musician Magician Music Magick” is available on CD for £10.
Daygan’s solo show
Daygan in his solo show’s uses a loop station to layer the magical sounds of his mandolin and create a one man mandolin orchestra touching on a phycedelic/ folkatronic sound.He plays traditional tunes and melodys from around the British Isles ,France and Brittany.From medieval to contempory folk as well as creating his own tuneful compositions .
He combines driving rhythmic underchords with delicate ,(and some say pixie-esque !)melodies on the mandolin ,playing from heart and spirit and bringing a sprinkling of bardic magic to the places in which he plays..”
Doing a one man show makes it very easy to perform in smaller spaces and is more affordable than a band for smaller events.
You are welcome to listen to Daygan’s solo album on the home page for examples of his music. Daygan has played as a solo performer in art centres.folk festivals,art gallery’s weddings, hand-fasting’s, restaurants, hotels, churches, Abbeys and even a cathedral!
This band developed from Daygan’s solo gig’s where he would invite some of the other talented musicians of Glastonbury to join in with him . some of the guests became regular, hence forming the band “The music magic experience” creating musical , expanding ,psychedelic journey music which through it’s melodies has a ancient celtic connection. Daygan plays music similar to his solo album but with a whole band of genius musicians contributing there own flavors to this musical melting pot.The band has drum kit,lead guitar,base guitar ,keyboards and of course mandolin.
Album coming soon!!
