Mid April Laurence Jones returned to Vanslag. I saw him play there before in October 2017. Back then in a tight 4-man formation, this time the group has expanded a bit.
I finally have my new bike, a Ridley X-Trail gravel bike. It’s NOT going to replace the Bianchi, but will allow me a few different roads, sometimes a more relaxed ride and to do a bit mor cycling late in the year. I took the Sony camera along for it’s first real ride for some shots.
Hearing that Michelle David was coming to Vanslag with the Gospel Sessions was just the best. I mean: The Gospel Sessions in a former church, the ‘Cathedral of music’ of the North, it can’t get much better than that!
Every once in a while it’s nice to visit a concert where you don’t really know what to expect and on March 15 I found myself at Vanslag in Borger for a concert by Marlene Bakker.
We did a short evening walk as the evenings are getting linger and the landscape is getting a bit more colour…
Last Sunday was the last Live op Zondag for this set of six concerts and to end this terrific series they had Ruben Hoeke and band over.
Two more images after the jump…
For the fifth edition of the ‘Live op Zondag’ concerts in Poortershoes Jerôme Hol came to Groningen with his trio to bring a good deal of Jazz drenched in hard blues and a heavy metal sound.
On the very last day of January I headed to Vanslag for a concert by the Irish couple Kieran Goss and Annie Kinsella. Outside it was white with snow and really quite cold, so a warm concert inside a church was just the right thing!
