We were recording today when we read the sad news of the passing of Jean Ritchie. So we decided to film our take on the song “The L&N don’t stop here anymore” … in her honor. We hope you like it!
Here’s some footage of our concert at Perdido Jazzclub last saturday. The song is called “I wish I could shimmy like my sister Kate”
Just one word: WOW! What an incredible audience in Hillegom! We got in the van around 4 and arrived two and a half hours later in a beautiful quiet town in the Netherlands: Hillegom. We were welcomed by the president of the local jazzclub. He immediately made us feel welcome and apologized for just arriving himself. Apparently he plays the drums in a band as well. We were guided through the backstage, checked the sound and by showtime the place was packed! Such nice people!
You’ll find a little picture show below. For us, this was a night we will never forget!
So here are some pictures of the wonderful Breda Jazz Festival. We can’t wait to play there again someday!
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!
Good news everyone we will be playing for the third time on the wonderful Breda Jazz Festival. If you have the time, go visit! It’s a lovely festival in a lovely place with festivities all over town. We will be playing on the 16th of May. A big thank you goes out to Roland Kompier and his team. Please visit their website: http://www.bredajazzfestival.nl
We had such a lovely time in Veghel. We played there three years ago and it was nice seeing all those familiar faces again!
