Be prepared for a load of new songs in 2016!

We had a little fun at rehearsal yesterday and tried out a bunch of new songs for our 2016 set. A played a lot of new songs that will feature on the new album “The Longest Mile”. But also this wonderful bluegrass song written by Flatt & Scruggs: “My Little Girl in Tennessee”. We love that one! Here are the amazing Chris Thile & Michael Daves performing this song:

We hope to see you at one of our shows in 2016!

Backstage shot of the photo shoot with Hans de Greve

So, we had a little photo shoot with the nice and great photographer Hans de Greve. He took some shots for the upcoming album cover. Shots to be used on the cover. He’s such an amazing photographer. Please go check out his website: http://www.hansdegreve.be

We had a wonderful time shooting these pictures and we will give an update an “The Longest Mile” soon! We can hardly wait for 2016!

Working hard on the Banjo and the Ukulele.

We are working hard these days on getting the parts right on the banjo and the ukulele for the next album: “The Longest Mile”. We are having so much fun with these great little instruments … We can’t wait to take them with us on the road in 2016.

Gear nerds: the banjo is a Saga banjo and the ukulele is a Laka ukulele. You’ll find more info on these websites:

Breda Jazz Festival was amazing! No doubt!

So Breda Jazz Festival was great! Again! It was the third time we played there and Roland Kompier an his team amazes us each time how well organized this festival is. Due to circumstances we brought along the amazing piano player Luk Vermeir from Isolde et les Bens. Our own dear Pat was struck with an illness so he couldn’t make it. Luk however did a wonderful job!

And we got to see other great bands! We especially like Bert Deivert’s band who played their set after us on the same stage! Go and see them if you have a chance!

And did we say … we love Breda? Yes we DO!
