With music genres spanning folk, blues, punk and drone rock, ‘The Witching Way’ is a concept album delivered by a live band with animated visuals. Part-fable, part-coming-of-age story, part-gig, this DIY rock opera is a rallying cry for the weird and wonderful among us.

After trying to be somebody she’s not amidst the perils of peer pressure, ‘W’ (our teen witch protagonist) is transported to a cottage in a strange landscape.

In order to find her way home she must embark on a quest to reckon with her history, overcome extraordinary obstacles, and ultimately find her voice.

Introduced by Dr Chloe Germaine Buckley, Senior Lecturer in English at Manchester Met whose research examines witches in popular culture.
