Looking for some interesting concerts the announcement for Kevin Morby cought my eye. Great previous gigs in Vera with Woods and The Babies, ending high in the polls of the Vera-concert lists, then it has to be something good! So on Monday I visited Groningen once again.
It’s been a while since I visited Vanslag, but with Lynne Hanson and Suzanne Jarvie there, bringing B.J Baartmans was a great reason to drive to Borger again.
As I drive into Groningen, I could see the huge Ferris Wheel of the May Fair on the Vismarkt popping out over the buildings, the sun was slowly setting and with the first official summer-temperature day of 2015, it was a lovely evening. But I wasn’t in Groningen for that… I had completely missed the announcement of Daniel Norgrens gig in Vera until a friend pointed me to that. Quickly checked it out and it sounded great, so onwards to Groningen!
It’s been a year since the cafe Lodewijk Napoleon opened its doors and they decided to celebrate that moment with a concert by Ralph de Jongh, fantastic idea! Back in the day when the Cosy Corner cafe was in that location it already had some great concerts and I well remember seeing Bradley’s Circus there in a blues route. With a raised floor in the cafe it’s perfect for concerts there and having a concert in Assen for a change is really nice
