On 17 June 2017 Weidendom ("Willow Dome") in Burg (Spreewald) attracted once more all lovers of Irish-Celtic culture for the celebration of the nearly shortest night of the year under its freshly renewed tendrils.
Thunderclouds piling up during our drive from Cottbus shaped up as an empty threat. In the enchanting light of the evening sun, the place unfurled its distinctive magic.
The Max McColgan Trio (Marty Byrne, Hardy Dürschlag and Güno van Leyen) enthused with soulful Irish, Scottish and country songs as well as lively traditional dance tunes.
Erin Circle had a share in the programme showing their Irish dances – for the 8th time already. The guests relished the spirit of the place and therefore it was a special pleasure for us to perform. It was the premiere for our new a cappella "Doodle Step".
Our warmest thanks to Gaby Eichhorst and her team from Burg Tourist Information for the long lasting faith in us and the habitual friendly cooperation. More thanks to the Lehmann Crew boys for their reliable technical support. And to Dominique Tschoyan for the pictures (No. 5, 8 and 12).
