The Breton night at the last Hofheim-am-Taunus Celtic Folkfestival (read the article on this subject) was a great moment to experience for us as a musicians and also for us as a dancers! This evening, a good ambiance of Brittany was really felt at Hofheim. In just a few years, this festival has become a pleasant moment of the summer season, creating a unique spirit in the music festival scenery.
The 7th edition of the Hofheim-am-Taunus Inter Celtic Folkfestival (Interkeltisches Folkfestival) in Germany will be running next week from the 2nd to the 25th of August. For my fourth participation1 in this festival, I will perform solo during the Breton night, on Saturday the 24th of August on the very atmospheric stage of the old water castle (Altes Wasserschloss). As every year, the eclectic program keeps its faithful approach in programming Celtic music, particularly from Scotland, Ireland and Brittany.
