Black Fox

Posted by shanoah on May 8, 2009

Well, I could easily go several directions with this, since I’m both fond of music by Andy Irvine, and of foxes. There’s the lore of kitsune in Japan, trickster fox spirits, and, of course, similar lore in Native American tales. Or the utter coolness of flying foxes.

So, naturally, I’ll keep with foxes as a theme. The song I’m going to play today is being sung by Heather Dale, who you may recall me posting a number of Arthurian songs from. This song is Black Fox or sometimes Little Black Fox.

And you know, claims of being the devil aside, this feels more like the Horned God, or something reminiscent of the Wild Hunt. Or perhaps a mischevious fox spirit tricking some hunters into thinking he is the devil. 🙂
