Bakfietsband – A musical mini portrait from Carambolas Films on Vimeo.

This summer has featured a wonderful series of Saturday afternoon performances at Westerpark as part of Herbert Nouwens’ sculpture exhibition, Angels’ Share. Sadly, this Sunday, it comes to a close. For the final installment we are happy to have the totally unique Bakfietsband performing as well as cornet master Eric Boeren.

This week the performance will take place Sunday afternoon, August 31, starting at 17:00. The meeting point will be in front of the twin sculpture just west of Pacific Parc.

Zomer Jazz Fiets Tour – August 30

Posted on 20 August 2014 in News

index_zjftThe Zomer Jazz Fiets Tour is one of the highlights of the Dutch musical year. The programming is always excellent and diverse and the novel idea to bike from stage to stage across the northern Netherlands’ charming landscape is so appealing we borrowed the idea for the last two editions of the Doek Festival.

This year a number of Doek, or Doek related groups, will be performing:

Duo Delius / Scheen
Marie Guilleray / Eric Boeren 5tet
1000 & Eugene Chadbourne
Goudsmit / Bakker / Jäger

Oscar Jan Hoogland plays Angels’ Share

Posted on 12 August 2014 in News

pianofallingThis Saturday afternoon, August 16, we have Oscar Jan Hoogland performing mobile piano at Westerpark as part of the ongoing Herbert Nouwens sculpture exhibition. Oscar is known for his ability to turn one of the most stationary instruments in western music into something surprisingly portable, as can be witnessed in his Bakfietsband (which will be playing the closing event for the exhibition). How he will deal with this challenge, we don’t know… But it’s sure to be highly inventive musically and logistically and how often do those two coincide?
