Hilke Billerbeck has studied classical guitar and Elementary Music Education in Hamburg, Germany. She has been travelling to Ireland for several years with her guitar, bodhrán and dancing shoes. Hilke is a member of the Elbe-Saiten-Quartett (a Hamburg-based guitar quartet) and is also currently involved in poetry and fairytale readings as well as some other creative music projects. The spirit of Irish culture, meeting lovable people and visiting special places inspire Hilke to create her own arrangements of Irish traditional slow airs and tunes for solo guitar.
One of her current projects is Sesken, a collaboration with Dublin-based Irish flute player Clara Grunefeld, also originally from Hamburg. Together, Hilke and Clara interpret northern German traditional music and songs with an Irish twist.
