Back again

We’ve just come back from playing in England and Ireland, and are looking forward to play there again next year. A tiny bit more sun would be nice for everyone!

High Tea & Time Travellers

After playing in Kiel and Hamburg at the Schleswig-Holstein Musikfestival (hear hear!), and three concerts in one day at WOMAD, the Village Pump Festival in Trowbridge, plus a short one as guests of Charlie Gillett on the BBC 3 stage … we spend a few days hanging out in Wales; enjoying High Tea, walking the Brecon Beacons, and dining in style! Then we’re off to Waterford in Ireland! P.S.: it is raining …

Bürgerfest in Berlin

Even if it was all too short short: it was good to see you all at the Brandenburg Gate yesterday!

We’ll be back by the end of December! Where? At the Kesselhaus of course, the place where everything started! We’ll be playing two evenings of HIPPIE-HAUS-TANZ!
