“And now we gather here once more,from Queen of the Four Fires, Swimming Deeper
chant a timeless tune,
With words that come down to us
from some forgotten rune.
And all four fires, bright as the sun,
the flames only go higher.
And the song we sing is like caroling to the Queen of the Four Fires.”
Queen of the Four Fires

Michael Peter Smith, guitar, bass

About the Feast of St. Brigid, Patron saint of poets, blacksmiths, scholars, sailors, midwives, beer and more. In the U.S. we celebrate Groundhog day February 2. In Ireland, February 1 is St. Brigid’s Day, also known as Imbolc, which marks the beginning of spring, and the arrival of longer, warmer days and the early signs of spring.
