Maids of Ireland

Hannah.. according to Olaf:
”In 1994 I was the first time in Ireland and heard Bill Whelean´s "Riverdance and was blown away. The lively atmosphere and the combination of dance and music was great in this piece. When I composed "Maids of Ireland" I had to think all the time to this and that the background story about it”
