We are stoked to present “The Witch of Ridley Creek”, straight off SPELLBOOK’s upcoming album “Deadly Charms”.
The trial involving the alleged “witch” of Ridley Creek Margaret Mattson took place in the late XVII century almost a decade before Salem’s infamous witch hunt.
Margaret was accused by her neighbors of practicing witchcraft, casting a curse over their animals and drying their land.
The truth was that Margaret occupied first the best part of the land which was much more fertile.
At the end of the trial no evidence was found of Margaret practicing witchery and she was condemned to a light sentence.
Shot by Brian Magar, “The Witch of Ridley Creek” features Brandy Collier as the Witch herself.
“Deadly Charms” will be released by Cruz Del Sur Music on Sept 30 (CD/DIGITAL) and October 7 (LP).
