It was a great weekend again. This time we played the ‘Into The Great Wide Open’-festival, on the beautiful island Vlieland, The Netherlands. Our set went like a dream, with very enthousiastic response from the crowd that came to…see us play on the stage, which was set in the middle of the woods. We were joined on stage by the lovely Marike Jager who sang her song ‘Reducer’, bluegrass style.She did a great job! Tim Knol also came on stage and did a wonderful rendition of the Hank Williams song ‘I saw the light’. Both Tim and Marike are very popular singers here in the Netherlands and it was an honour to have them on stage with us. Then, at 00.30 in the morning we played another set, and this time we returned the favor to Marike, backing her up for her set. And again, Tim joined us and sang Bob Dylan’s ‘You ain’t going nowhere’ and his own ‘Sam’s leaving town’.
After several requests from the crowd, which grew larger and larger as everyone was twitterin’ ‘n’ tweetin’ around, we called it a day. And what a day it was!
Thanks folks, for the support and the warm welcome. We sure hope to be back at this wonderful festival sometime in the future!
This weekend, on Saturday, we’ll be traveling to Germany to see our friends at the Cowtown Rocks Again Rockabilly weekender, with The Haystack Hi-Tones, Junior Marvel, K.C. Credit. DJ Sputnik and The Spinning Two will be playing the records. On Sunday day we’ll be back in Holland to play the Kempener Pop-festival, alongside Peter Pan Speedrock, Nashville Pussy, Demented Are Go, Armand and many others. Again, a weekend to look forward to!
Hope to see you folks there, or somewhere else down the road.
