We're about to get the second season of Britannia here, which is a good thing, because I enjoyed the first. Hurdy Gurdy Man seemed a bit of an odd choice for the opening credits, but I got used to it after a while.I had never heard this song until this week, when I stumbled upon a series on Amazon Prime, Britannia; this is the opening credits song.
Donovan -- Hurdy Gurdy Man
Given the context of Britannia (it is set during the time of the druids), I had wrongly assumed the Hurdy Gurdy Man was a magickal entity in Celtic mythology; perhaps similar to the Horned God.
So I was a little disappointed to find out that a hurdy gurdy is just a guitar-like musical instrument.
I had also never seen Donovan in person before (I had only heard his voice). He reminds me of a hobbit.
Catch the Wind is my favourite from the "hobbity" Donovan.
