Irish Mythen in der Lutherkirche zu Elmshorn

Now I would like to present pictures of a very special concert in Elmshorn.

Elmshorn – What??

For many people it is a small town in the Northwest of Hamburg. For some people it is one of the major capitols of folk music. Rolf Reinstrom, called Lotte, an old Tønder veteran, and many friends and supporters in town provide around eight excellent folk and blues concerts per anno in different venues. And these concerts are sold out regularly, the Elmshorn audience obviously appreciates Lotte´s selection of fine artists.

Irish Mythen had been booked by Lotte about one and a half years ago and nobody could know then, that Irish would rock folk festivals around the world very soon. Therefore, this for all parties was a very lucky occasion to meet in that beautiful church. Irish played, though labouring with a bad cold, a great concert and the very concentrated and friendly audience obviously enjoyed it. More – it seemed as if a bond of sympathy connected Irish and the audience.

Standing ovations in the end were the reward for Irish after having sung “The Auld Triangle“ without guitar and microphone.

Die Oysterband in der Alten Kirche Altenessen

In einem ganz besonderen Ambiente spielte die Oysterband am 12. November 2010 in Essen. Nicht wie sonst in der Zeche Carl, übrigens auch ein toller Veranstaltungsort, sondern in der Kirche:in der Alten Kirche zu Altenessen.  

Das Vorprogramm wurde vom Ralf Weihrauch Trio gestaltet, schöner, melodischer Folk, virtuos und witzig vorgetragen. Wie immer war die Oysterband um John Jones einsame Spitze. Bei zwei Gelegenheiten aber kamen die Qualitäten der Band in diesem Umfeld besonders zu Geltung. Da traten die Musiker vor die Mikrofone und sangen wirklich unplugged, ohne Mikrofon und Verstärker. Und beim letzten Stück "Put out the light ..." sang dann die ganze "Gemeinde" mit.

Die Versorgung der Zuschauer übernahm der Weltladen Alte Kirche unter anderem mit fair gehandeltem Wein und Nüssen. Veranstaltet wurde das Konzert vom Ruhr.Kultur.Marketing

Madison Violet im Cafe Steinbruch in Duisburg

Madison Voilet nach ihrem Konzert im November 2009 wieder einmal im – Cafe Steinbruch – am 15. März 2010. Offensichtlich ein gutes Pflaster, denn gut 120 Zuhörer hatten sich in dem gemütlichen Konzertsaal des Cafe Steinbruch eingefunden. Da haben wohl einige Zuhörer ihre Freunde mitgebracht, denn der Zuspruch war noch einmal größer als beim letzten Mal.
