I must have past the Synagog in Groningen countless of times, it’s at the entrance of a very lovely shopping-street and looks quite impressive. Still I had never actually set foot in the Synagog. Not until yesterday evening, when those fine people of wishfulmusic had been able to organize a very fine musical evening in it.
I first saw Sofie Letitre almost exactly 2 years ago, opening a show for Sophie Hunger. Mostly her alone on piano, with the help of Ferdie van der Singel on guitar hoping to hear more from Sofie before long. After the show I remember Sofie handing out her EP, then still as ‘Le Titre’. It has taken a little while, but on November 8 she finally had her release-gig for her debut album ‘Back Where We Came From’, in Simplon!
