WELCOME TO GOTHIC CELT
TIFFANY APAN’S BLOG FOR CELTIC NATIONS MAGAZINE
Fans are describing her music and stories as a much welcome escape into another world. Drawing inspiration from the works of fantasy writers like JRR Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Diana Gabaldon, and George R.R. Martin, along with historical events, mythology, ancient texts, and lore, Tiffany aims to take you into a world of bonfires, castles, dragons, and of course, time travel!
From ethereal gothic ballads to folk-tales inspired by the Celts and Viking sea adventures, symphonic world instrumentation and operatic blast beats that invoke passion and mystery, her voice and style has been described as being truly unique.
Her music and stories have received critical acclaim with her “Scarborough Fair” music video won first place in the Open Genre Music Video category at the International Indie Gathering Film Festival in Cleveland, OH. Some songs have been selected and featured in several independent films.
In addition to music and writing, she is active in living history and reenactment communities, bringing history education to the public along with allowing her to indulge her affinity and obsession with costuming and period clothing! Such endeavors also led to her performing vocals and percussion with the 18th century Celtic Folk group, Wayward Companions and appearing as a guest vocalist with the Pittsburgh Historical Music Society Orchestra.
When she’s not time traveling, she is also dedicated to holistic health and fitness.
As a side project, she runs the online webzine and podcast at the Bonfires, Castles, and Time Travel. Currently, she is working on a new studio album heavily inspired by events and key figures from Tudor England.
