On checking my calendar I found my notes regarding the Irish Spring Festival 2012. On reading them I could again the atmosphere at the venue. It is nice to think about this remarkable evening.
Location: Roth, Kulturfabrik
What a nice gift! Two cards for Wolfgang and for myself. About a fortnight before I watched a documentary about Ireland on TV. Among others their was a report about the Henry Girls. Brilliant.
When handed the evening’s programme I was speechless: Fidil, Henry Girls, Tulsk.
A truly enchanting concert began. Fidil (http://fidilmusic.com/fidil/) was living proof that fiddles are not annoying at all – on the contrary. We learned that fiddles can sing, cheer, and cry.
The Henry Girls (http://www.thehenrygirls.com/) presented several songs in English and Gaelic. One of the latter is a classic – unfortunately I cannot remember the song’s name. It is a song that just goes under your skin. I really should learn Gaelic some day.
The following pause was spent waiting in the Guinness queue.
The last song was presented by all of them. Time went by way too fast.
Afterwards I bought their latest CDs. Wolfgang organised Fidil and Tulsk autographs. I chatted with the Henry Girls – and certainly got their autographs as well. I truly hope to meet them again.
