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?
