Bard of Ely, whose real name is Steve Andrews, comes from Cardiff in Wales but moved to Tenerife in 2004 and subsequently to Portugal in 2014. Bard of Ely is a singer-songwriter, an author, a poet, a compere, photographer and artist. Bard of Ely was the compere for the Avalon Stage at Glastonbury Festival twice and also performed on several occasions as a singer-songwriter, as well as doing the same at the Green Man Festival. Bard of Ely's song You're a Liar, Nicky Wire, was rave reviewed in NME and fronted the Taffia EP on Crai Records. Bard of Ely's song Sound of One was used in Family Affairs on Channel 5. Bard of Ely was a presenter of In Full View on BBC Choice and he has appeared on many other TV programs. In 2016 he successfully got through the Britain's Got Talent auditions and will be auditioning before the judges in 2017.
My Hub Pages: I have discovered a site called Hub Pages where you can earn money from your articles by getting Google ads and Amazon and Ebay ads posted along with whatever you've written. I have articles on Priscilla Hernandez's music, UFOs and aliens, Glastonbury Festival, Monarch butterflies, Lynn Carey Saylor, writer CJ Stone, wild foods, and Tenerife.

Check it out here:
Bard of Ely's song helps raise half a million: My song Real Love and Communication which includes the Druid's Oath -

We swear by peace and love to stand, heart to heart and hand to hand, mark, oh Spirit, and hear us now, confirming this our sacred vow -

has been used by DJ Arthmawr aka Tim to help raise a lot of money and he sent me this email to say so:

We raised half a million dollars in 5 days for the radio station. I used the first track from your CD to inspire the listeners and got everyone to do the Druids' pledge. I might make that my theme tune.

Hope all is well

Pic of my beard in BBC news story: Saturday night I was trying to get a BBC news story as a potential candidate for a moustache and beard festival in the UK and was in touch with someone called Dawn who wanted more photos for a possible slideshow. Great, I thought - I am going to get a story and I sent a whole lot of pics! But then Sunday I was in touch with another BBC writer called Susanna who said she couldn't use what I had sent because I wasn't actually in this year's festival but that I should enter for next year! Now this morning I have just had an email from some friends to tell me they saw my pic, so looks like I went in after all! lol

Here's the link:

Honored if you punched up "Take Her Back To Scotland" at my site and reviewed.
Mark Hermann was not only my friend but a true brother with whom I travelled all over N.A. He will always be missed. His site should always stay up. He turned me on to your music. Am thankful for it. Keep it up.
