Burd Ellen – The High Priestess and the Hierophant [THR008]This item is unavailable.
The High Priestess and the Hierophant is the new single from Burd Ellen, a Glasgow-based project featuring Debbie Armour (Alasdair Roberts, Green Ribbons) and Gayle Brogan (Pefkin, Electroscope).
Debbie says: “I’m a long-time collector and lover of tarot, and I’ve recently become drawn to the idea of finding parallels between interpretation of traditional song and the art of divination. Gayle and I are bringing together a new collection of songs that reflect the ideas, archetypes and imagery of the Major Arcana. The High Priestess and the Hierophant is the first of these works. It’s a version of Fair Annie (Child 62), a song which looks at patriarchy, arranged marriage, the complexities of maternal love and the bonds of sisterhood."
