Ravensdale is a medieval folk-inspired tavern band. The mountains and seas of Ireland feature heavily in their work. Ravensdale will open the Viking concert at The Portico. They are talented musicians and songwriters and play an array of recreated ancient instruments to form their unique sound.
Seidrblot are the up-and-coming band in the Nordic folk/shamanic genre. Based in England and fronted by Spanish national Visy Bloodaxe, they supported Heilung on their last European tour before the outbreak of Covid 19. Many will remember their performance at The Barbican in York, which was Heilungs last concert before pandemic lock downs came into force.
