Hi folks!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! We’ve sure been keeping ourselves busy, working on different projects. We’ve recorded our addition to the Annie M.G. Schmidt (a famous Dutch writer) tribute album, and are pleased with the result. It was the first time we worked with the guys of the Excelsior Recordings label and the collaboration went just fine. We’re looking forward to recording our next album for them in February.

And here’s the poster Joost van Es made for the gig he put on here in Utrecht, November 2nd. Looking forward to that! Joost himself will be joining us on fiddle, which Continue reading →

A pity that this was the last edition of the festival, but we’re glad to have been able to be part of it. On Saturday we were booked for a private party at a small horse ranch in Voorschoten…western style. Continue reading →

We had us a great time at the Appalachian and Bluegrass music festival in Omagh, N-Ireland again. We met a lot of our friends and made us many new ones. The shows all went very well and we sold out on the cds. Especially the show at the sold out marquee, on Saturday night, was fantastic! Also the sessions at the pub near where we were staying were great. The organiser of the festival Continue reading →
