09/18/2001 Finally an Update!

After a longer period of time I had some time to update my website again. Here is a brief overview of the things that happened in the world of Irish Dance Shows:

Máiréad Nesbitt's new album: Unfortunately I haven´t got any new information on her new CD. I didn´t manage to get it yet. I´ll let you know as soon as I have some further information.

New Tourdates: There are some new tourdates for most of the Irish Dance Shows (LOTD, MOTD, Riverdance, etc.). The best source for reliable tourdates are still the Celtic Cafe Tourdates. Go and have a look!

"Amateur" Dance Groups: I often get emails from smaller dance groups, because they´d like a link to their website on my pages. Since my links page is already pretty overloaded, it´s hard to find the links to these groups - unfortunately, since some of those dance companies should be called "professional" rather than "amateur". That´s why I decided to create a new section that contains a list of some smaller groups, including brief descriptions and links to their homepages.

Feet of Flames Nachbrenner: Um meine Seite über die FOF Victory Tour etwas abzurunden, habe ich eine Tourbericht von Jeannie Kaidy ins Netz gestellt. Dieser begeisterte Fan hat ALLE Shows in den USA gesehen und in diesem Bericht gibt sie ihre Eindrücke wieder - leider alles nur auf Englisch. Jeannies FOF Tour-Report.

Celtic Life: A couple of new tourdates can be found HERE.
