An Taisdeal (pron.: An Tahshdel, Scots Gaelic for "The Journey") is a Celtic Folk project from Germany. Originally founded by Rüdiger Reinhardt in 2002 with Anna Molitor on the fiddle, the project was put on ice, as he moved away in 2005, and playing together was no longer possible.

"The Journey" can be seen as a journey through the celtic countries, where the songs are originated, through history, which is told in the songs, and also as a journey for the audience, on which the listeners embark at a gig.

The songs are in English, Irish Gaelic, Scottish Gaelic and also Breton language.
An Taisdeal is not a real band, but rather a project with friends as occasional guest musicians. You never know who you might meet on your travels.

Some recordings of the songs on the "home recordings" album are more than 10 years old, but never really made their way into public.

Personal Fact: Celtic langguage afficionado, celtic geek, but mostly harmless

Band: An Taisdeal
from_CD: Home Recordings
Hometown: Heidelberg, Germany
