THE MISTLETOE BRIDE by Rose Price & Martin Medina

Original Song

My wife Kate and I wrote this song having been in almost total isolation for a whole year. The young bride trapped in an oak chest is a fitting metaphor for the suffocating, claustrophobic atmosphere of lockdown.
The Mistletoe Bride is an acoustic/folk song based upon a traditional folk tale and ghost story. A young bride playing a game of hide-and-seek during her wedding breakfast, hides in a chest in an attic and is unable to escape. She is not discovered by her family and friends and suffocates. The body is found many years later in the locked chest as a skeleton in a wedding dress.
The new single offers a modern setting of the traditional tale, told from the female perspective and was inspired by a short story by the novelist Kate Mosse.
