Support association Förderverein Annahütte Lausitz e.V. is involved with the preservation of the attractiveness of the former miners' and glassworkers' village, especially of the beautiful neo-gothic Henriettenkirche from 1904.
In order to fund the restoration of the Voigt organ within the listed clinker building, on Whitsaturday (7 June 2014) the Annahütte citizens organised a Celtic Folk Festival.
From 2 pm on the vibes on the place in front of the church became very Irish. In a midsummery heat there were stands with Whiskey-tasting, fish & chips, coffee and cake or hog roast, which provided for the physical well-being of the guests.
In the marquee one could feed the emotional well-being and care for the Irish soul in all of us. With music and dance from Brigandu from Berlin, Dresden Bagpipes, A Sè Ceoltoir from Oschatz, Fil Campbell from Northern Ireland and Erin Circle from Cottbus the guests drifted gradually towards the Emerald Isle.
During the whole festival we had very nice encounters with guest, artists and organisers.
We donated a part of our fee to the good cause of the event.
We would like to thank the organisers, especially Sieglinde Roy and Jörn Erbert, for the invitation and we hope for a remake next year.
