I am a Völva. Völva is Old Norse for “staff carrier,” the traveling spiritual guide learned in the ways of my European/Scandinavian Folk Soul. Like Thorbjorg from Eric the Red’s Saga, I am invited into communities to lead ceremony, share information, impart wisdom, and perpetuate the folk ways through song, story, and dance. I heal oorlag at it's source and read wyrd for individuals and groups.

Kari and Drew in the Studio!

Hey folks,
What an exciting July it has been. Drew Miller and I have been working with the music and are creating new arrangements for our concert at the Starwood Festival in a week's time. No more guitar for me...alas. My beautiful Seagull has given me 20 plus years of dedicated service but now it wants to retire into the hands of my fine young sons. No more on the road risk and danger.

So what are my new instruments? Of course I use my stav, my voice, and then I wave my antler and feather fan over a little blue box and elves sing with me! Drew plays his computer, a key board, and the electric dulcimer....So Retro-Future, so Bronze Age revival!

As soon as there are mp3s I will share them with you all. Otherwise, come to Sherman, New York on Friday the 24th, midnight at the Pufferdome for the debut of Kari Tauring and Huldre's new set!

Blessings All!
