Dutch Folk Music

These web pages were set up as a result of meeting Act of Mutiny in Bremen-Vegesack in 2010 during the Festival Maritim between the 6th and 8th of August. Whilst at my stage life I can reasonably say that I will no longer learn Dutch or sing Dutch songs and never have such a song in my repertoire. No, this webpage is to promote Act of Mutiny CDs and to support any Dutchman or Dutchwoman out there in cyberspace who would like to make English language contributions on Dutch folk music. Interestingly, Act of Mutiny only use English in their repertoire of shanties and sea songs.!
Since writing the above in 2010. I have had the further pleasure of meeting Nanne & Ankie in March, 2011 at the Bridge Follk Club in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Which Dutch ladies or gentlemen will I meet in 2012, I wonder?
