Follow the Heron

In this song, Karine Polwart sings “the back of the Winter is broken…” and it certainly feels that way. Ever since the Spring Equinox a few days ago we’ve been having glorious sunny weather, and here is a beautiful song ‘Follow the Heron Home’ to celebrate this. I was introduced to this by listening to a ‘Desert Island Discs’ style interview with OBOD tutor James Nichol on Stroud FM – a fascinating hour long conversation about his spiritual journey peppered with great music. The interview will be going up on the OBOD website soon (in the Druidry & Dharma section).


  1. This is one of my favorite songs. Whenever I hear it, I think of the Atlantic ocean and the shores of Nova Scotia, where I’ve lived since September. Truly, I believe I have ‘followed the heron’ home to this place of astonishing beauty. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. We’ll make a folky of you yet Philip đŸ™‚
