‘Doek meets Tri-Centric’ was more than we ever expected. The music was mind-blowing, the people were wonderful and there was a great atmosphere. The whole week was a great succes thanks to the public, the musicians, the volunteers, the venues and all others involved!
We’ve gathered together reviews, blogs, photos and video blogs so that you can relive the festival once more. Click on the revisited tab here. Enjoy!
Hope to see you at the Doek ABC Festival in 2016: ‘Amsterdam-Berlin-Chicago’!
Nederland and Flanders share a language. We share a border, but – as often happens with neighbours – we don’t meet up that often. That’s why 2015 is the year of BesteBuren, where we celebrate Flemish-Dutch creativity and cultural collaboration. Doek’s contribution to BesteBuren is the project Droom Duos, where we team Doek musicians with such interesting players as Fred van Hove, Bart Maris and Joachim Badenhorst. We’ll be presenting concerts in The Netherlands and in Belgium. First up is the Bimhuis on 18 September.
Oscar Jan, Peter & Han will play trio at the coming North Sea Jazz Festival.
Han Bennink is artist in residence for this edition of Holland’s biggest jazz festival. After having played many duo gigs, on this occasion Oscar Jan Hoogland and Han Bennink will be joined by the phenomenal Peter Evans for a trio performance.

Doek @ Zaal 100
Sunday 28 June
20:00 – free entry!
Wolter Wierbos hosts trombone night
With Sam Kulik, Koen Kaptijn, Joost Buis, Salvoandrea Lucifora
Doek @ Zaal 100 is a monthly meeting place for music, discussion, art and drinks. For this edition Wolter Wierbos has brought together an exceptional crew of trombonists from around the world coming from both classical and jazz backgrounds. Some of them are based in the Netherlands, and a couple are just travelling though. Either way, this will be an unbelievable evening of trombone madness including improvisation, discussion over the music and the instrument, and since there are some doublers in the group, a few guitars might pop up as well.
Blog 6: Monday 8 June

Sunday, the final day of the Doek/Tri-Centric festival, let us listeners quietly come down from all the excitement the orchestra built up last week. A few American guests lingered to play yesterday’s four-stop bicycle tour. Still high from Saturday’s Misha Mengelberg retrospective, wherever we went musicians were playing his tunes. We only made it to half the biking gigs—partly because everyone has to sleep sometime, partly because when a house manager tells us we’ll need to don blindfolds in order to be seated, as at the Pianola Museum, we are tiptoeing backwards out the door.
