Cascading rivulets of ancient sounds, elusive special effects and magnificent instrumentation breathe life into the sacred and revered legacy of the Druid. Evoking the powers of the ancient Standing Stones of the West Country, this potent metaphysical music explores the inner secrets of nature, revealing a world of magic and legend. 

Ethereal, mystical and most enjoyable.

Review by Brett
Druid has a low-key pagan, medieval feel to it. This has been a best selling album for many years (first launched in 1990) and did so well it inspired two further albums 
Excalibur and Merlin which combine to form the Druid Trilogy.

The atmosphere is very gentle and really does have an ancient druid-like atmosphere caused by the distant slow drum beats, slow chords, special effects and occasional distant haunting male vocals. An inspired and atmospheric album by one of the leading artists in new age music today.

Total Running Time: 41:53 minutes

About Medwyn Goodall
Medwyn Goodall is one of the leading lights and success stories in the New Age music scene.

He learnt to play music as a child and is believed to have been encouraged to pursue a music career after meeting pop star, Cliff Richard. Medwyn plays multiple instruments (guitar, piano, harp, flute, panpipes, synthesizer, drums and more) and has composed and recorded a wide repertoire of music, amassing nearly four million album sales worldwide so far.

Medwyn draws his inspiration from nature, ancient mysteries and cultures and composes haunting melodic instrumental music. His album Earth Healer was voted the leading instrumental album of 1992 and several albums reached Gold album status. In particular, Medicine Woman won Gold, Platinum and the Best Album Ever awards in 2002 for selling over 450,000 copies.

In 2003, Medwyn launched his own New Age record label, MG Music, and has realised his dream of helping many established and new artists to release albums.

As well as releasing many albums under his own name, Medwyn also uses the alias Midori to record music with more of an ethnic, eastern and healing slant.

Medwyn was born in Yorkshire and now lives in rural Cornwall with his wife, Wendy. He continues to compose and record his music from the comfort of his private studio.

    Great for Relaxing or Meditation

    Posted by Karl on 10th Mar 2005

    A dreamy blend of deep Arthurian fantasy is the way in which I would describe Druid by Medwyn Goodall. The combination of distant drumbeats, haunting vocals and soothing rhythm send the listener on a journey to a far off time and place. Not so much as to become trance educing, more in a sense of submerging oneself within a medieval way of life. Whether you are looking for something relaxing or to meditate to, Druid should offer something for everyone. The music lays the foundations from which to meditate, I find a woody incense or aroma compliments the mood beautifully.
