Please bring the ticket printout with you to be scanned at the door. Elspeth will also have original Books, CDs, and Artwork for purchase, so bring some extra cash with you! Trust me, you’re going to want them! The event will be held inside Alexian & Victor’s screened in orchid porch. BRING YOUR OWN SMALL FOLDING CHAIR.

Few of our cultural elders in America ever reach the status of “Living Legend”. Those who know Grandmother Elspeth will say she is one. An inspirational teacher and storyteller, Elspeth leads her listeners on a journey of Spirit, guiding them toward both personal and planetary transformation.
Never content to teach the standard “Wicca 101” fare, her teachings say in no uncertain terms, “Wake up! Take charge of your life! YOU have the power to change the reality around you!” Watch out, people — Grandmother may shake you out of your comfortable box!
This Autumn Tour will take Grandmother into the homes of many dear ones. She’ll meet new folks and renew old friendships. She is asking for your generous donations, in the form of tickets and merchandise purchases, which will help keep her on the road to reach more hearts and ears, and to fund the replacement of her aging computer. The latter will make it possible for Grandmother Elspeth to begin a series of YouTube talks, to spread her ideas to a larger audience! You can help make this happen, simply by attending this private, limited seating event in the home of Alexian and Victor.
Is my registration/ticket transferable?
Yes. They just need to bring the ticket printout from Eventbrite with them. We will scan the ticket at the door.
What should I bring?
Your printed out ticket, extra cash, and a folding chair.
The recording of my new song “Scream”, which is about the destruction of the planet by humankind, is coming along nicely. I’ve just about got the instrumental tracks completed, and I’ll be laying down vocal tracks soon.
Here’s an excerpt from the chorus:
“Mother Earth is slowly dying, ripped apart by human kind.
Father Sky is sad & crying. Sun & Moon are going blind.
Can we stop the madness knowing, we have already killed the dream
For these We Scream….”
Merry Meet everyone,
I know it’s been a long while since I last posted to my blog, and I thought I would catch everyone up on what has been going on with my life over the past couple of years.
Shortly after my post in August 2012, my mother (75) crossed the veil and my world went into a tail spin. She was diagnosed with a brain tumor several months earlier in April 2012, and had surgery to remove it a month or so later. The surgery was successful and she was on the mend for a couple months, when suddenly…..
I have drove & flown back and forth to Missouri more times than I can remember to take care of family business.
In January 2013, just about the time things seemed to be getting under control, my father, 85, (10 years older than my mother) started having his own health issues, which spiraled down quickly. My father passed this past September 2013.
It’s been a very difficult couple of years, but once again, I am getting a grip, and re-grouping. It’s a New Year, started by a New Super Moon, and it’s time for New Beginnings.
With that said, I am moving forward on my album “Circle of Power” which has been in the works for years. 4 songs have already been released as digital singles, and there will be 5-6 more songs coming quickly to complete the CD and release it for Summer 2014.
There are also “OTHER” creative going-ons, so stay tuned to my website for those special “hints”.
Bast Blessings & Happy New Year 2014!
I had a great time, once again, at Phoenix Phyre 2012 held near Lakeland, FL in April. It was wonderful to see familiar smiling faces and receive so many gracious hugs while at the gathering.
One of the highlights was sitting and talking with Nybor and Elspeth. Two very dear people to my heart. They were there with bells on, dispensing their wisdom to whomever would listen.
Another highlight was actually sitting with and recording Ardy sing her song “Who Will Listen”. She has an amazingly beautiful voice, and I am going to be taking that and setting it to music and fleshing out an entire recording around her voice. I’m excited about this project, because it is speaking to me so strongly in my thoughts and dreams!
And I would be remiss in not mentioning how wonderful it was to hang out with Mead Muse and her clan’s camp. We had great fun all week long, keeping each other entertained, and tempering the wild drunken fairies (complete with wings) that would happen by.
When it came to the night of my performance, which was also the celebration of the 20th year anniversary of Phoenix Festivals, Mother Nature decided to teach us all a small lesson in patience. A small storm cell developed directly over our heads (according to radar on our phones), and continued to expand until it opened up a deluge upon us. It POURED right when I was unloading my equipment to set up for my concert. LOL
Not to be undone, I covered my equipment as best I could under the large tent, and took my mic stand and continued walking in circles pushing the puddling water out of the tent roof. It was raining so hard it was drooping on all sides at least 1-2 feet.
The local Witches sprang into action. To this day, I’m not sure what spell they were chanting, but there were several small groups casting like crazy to bubble us from the rain.
This continued for an hour or so.
Finally it started to let up, and the rain slowed until it stopped. Everything was wet, but my equipment was dry. Thank Goddess!
I quickly set up for the concert and gave my best, albeit truncated, concert that I could muster! I had everyone up dancing and enjoying the coolness of the evening before they headed over to the drumming circle in the now rising fog.
Oh what a night!
I look forward to returning to Phoenix Festivals soon! All my love to everyone that makes this gathering such a pleasure to attend!

Merry Meet everyone!

Merry Meet Rabid Pagans!
Today is my birthday and I’ve had a great one! There are literally HUNDREDS of posts on my Facebook from people wishing me a joyous day, and you all have made it one!
I am preparing to leave for the Phoenix Phyre gathering in Central Florida (Lakeland, FL) on Wednesday, and I will be there through Sunday. During the festival, I will be reading cards for people and also teaching one of my favorite workshops, “The Magickal Voice”. The workshop is scheduled for Thursday afternoon at the gathering.
Friday evening, April 8th, I will be debuting my new dance music along with some old favorites at my concert at Phoenix Phyre. The entertainment starts at 8:30pm with me hosting an open mic, followed by my concert.
If you can’t make it to the gathering for the full time, there are weekend passes available, as well as an evening pass from 6pm to 11pm for only $15. This includes my concert! So come out and see me!
For more information about Phoenix Phyre, please visit: http://www.phoenixfestivals.com
If you do plan on coming out to the concert, or if you just want to have some fun… check out the new line dance that my dear friend and covenmate, Ayanna, created for my birthday! It’s for my dance remake, “Cool to Be a Witch 2.0”!
I have posted the video right here on my website under Videos, or you can always go directly to my YouTube site at: http://www.youtube.com/lordalexian
Spring is here, and I’m ready to travel! I’ll be calling you all to set up concerts (and house concerts as well) all around Florida during the months of late April, May & June!
Then I’m already starting to plan a tour all the way up from Florida through the MID-WEST and back during July! So if you live in Northern FL, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Arkansas, or Missouri, etc please contact me! This is your chance to get me to come perform live for you and your friends!
I am also contemplating a tour UP the East Coast all the way North in October! What Witchy pleasures await me up there?
Don’t be shy! Contact me… I don’t bite…. too hard. (Unless you want me to!)
As I continue to record my new album, I am already looking ahead to start booking house concerts for myself across the USA. In fact, I’d like to start performing in the Florida area this summer to begin with! So I’m looking for individuals to host me at their home for a “House Concert”.
A House Concert is not a new phenomena, but the concept is taking off with renewed energy and vigor at this time due to the fact that the recording industry is breaking down, and the independent musician, like myself, is on the rise. The power shift has moved from the big conglomerate recording companies to the musicians themselves!
All Hail the Bards!
As part of my preparation in preparing to take my music on the road, I thought I’d begin the education process of what a House Concert is, and what it is not. Not surprisingly, someone has already done the work for me, in the form of a video presentation, so I am sharing those YouTube videos with you here now.
Here is a link to download a free .PDF Guide Booklet about hosting House Concerts. Download it for Free now! And contemplate hosting me someday soon! 🙂
Enjoy the videos, and if you are interested in hosting me and my music for you and your family and friends, please don’t hesitate to contact me DIRECTLY at: email@example.com or call 407-278-1877.
