We could mix a day at Wildlands in Emmen with the Gouden Pijl road cycling event in Emmen in one day, a perfect combination and so after having seen lots of wild animals in the park we were of to see wild cyclists in the center of Emmen.
This year halfway July was the fourth edition of the fantastic Static Roots Festival in Zentrum Altenberg in Oberhausen. A young festival that is growing and improving every year and as a result of that they SOLD OUT this year, a fantastic achievement and I’m really proud to have been a part of this great festival from the very beginning!
if it ain’t got that swing!
A beautiful initiative from the Dutch organisation Natuurmonumenten is the Midsummer nightwalk that we did last weekend. In the night of course :)
The last concert I saw at Vanslag before it’s summer concert-stop was, halfway May, Fred Eaglesmith who brought his wife Tif Ginn -a seriously good guitarist- along. An evening filled with jokes, stories and a song here or there.
Lovely when the animal kingdom comes into your garden, even it i’t as tiny as this hard working bumblebee.
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.
Sometimes it’s just about being at the right place at the right moment.
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.
In less than a week Eurosonic/Noorderslag will be all over Groningen again: the musical showcase of Europe where all up and coming bands from all over Europe will perform in every location that can have a stage. So it’s nice that a few Dutch bands can have a little extra exposure in some preview-shows. At Vanslag five band from Drenthe had the opportunity to present themselves and as a bonus Hanna Mae performed with band.
