Tilia Line Up Introducing Norland Wind

During the weekend of 17-18-19 April 2009, the Tilia Festival 2009 will be held in café Onder De Linden in Luinjeberd Netherlands, with many Irish artists to perform. First band to introduce here is Norland Wind. In 1993 Kerstin Blodig and Thomas Loefke started off as a duo, the band has been growing ever since. Norland Wind now is Thomas Loefke (Celtic harp), Kerstin Blodig (vocals, guitar, bouzouki, bodhrán) Clannad member Noel Duggan (vocals, guitar), also Clannad member Pádraig Duggan (vocals, mandolin, percussion), Máire Breatnach (vocals, fiddle, viola) and Matthias Kießling (vocals, keyboards). Donegal, the Celtic Northwest of Ireland, with its Irish language, folklore, legends, its treasure of traditional songs and melodies and its majestic landscape, provides inspiration for the compositions of the group. The latest album of the band is Departures. For more go to the Norland Wind website.
