Gert Waring, Burger/Riotom. No: The leafy

Born in Borger in Drenthe, lived in Reutum for years. Growing up normally he was a fan of Mooi Wark, and promoted the band. Performing at the Mega Pirate Festijn in Borger made me want more. He is now an artist himself. His song is a cover of The Bellamy Brothers, with lyrics he wrote himself.

The cigar box is a relatively unknown instrument in the Netherlands, invented by poor blacks in the Mississippi Delta. Henry makes and plays this instrument like no other.

Jeff Horsthuis, Oldenzaal. No: Lot Joan!

His love of music was nurtured at the Bleichelmoos church, and he was a member of the famous City Boys Choir. He was a German/English teacher, and language was his calling. He is now retired and teaches Italian.

Emotional singer. She doesn’t sing in dialect very often. Her song is about Valentine’s Day. She took part in the Twente schieverskakamp and discovered how well the Twente language suited her songs.

They were only around for a short time, and had rehearsed twice for the preliminary role. They come from the band Greutz, based around singer Luuk Siemerink. Their song is about a boy from the country who goes to the big city, but returns home to a harsh awakening.

Quittert and De Hoop. No: You can’t understand me anyway.

Music with a message, and sometimes a wink. A mix of Dutch hum rock, bathroom blues, and experimental pop, this time with an accent.
