Announce new tour dates
Dutch symphonic band BLACKBRIAR released its debut album ‘The Cause of Shipwreck’ on april 23rd. The Assen based sextet now released a video for ‘Fairy of the Bog’.
Watch ‘Fairy of the Bog’ below.
Says Blackbriar frontwoman Zora Cock:
“‘Fairy of the Bog’ us full of Drents hirstory and folklore. The story is about the Girl Of Yde, sacrificed to the gods in the bogs of Drenthe, where her body was found 2000 years later. Although her body is now at display in the musuem in Assen, her soul still wanders around through the lands of Drenthe. She is lonely, until a will-o’-the-wisp lures her to the witte wieven (white women), dancing near the dolmen. We are proud of the rich history and folklore of our region and it was amazing to shoot a video all night near Dolmen D25, in Bronnerer .”
