FERLET - JANNEKE WARRINGA, TOUR FRIESLAND

December 1, 2021

Recently, I have been working together with the talented singer Janneke Warringa. This collaboration has resulted in a theatre tour with Frisian songs, which is themed 'Ferlet'.

Ferlet means need and desire in the Frisian language. Today, we feel the undeniable need for touch, connection, warmth, and comfort. We all feel a great desire to go back to the familiar 'normal'. Together with singer Elske Fekkes and cellist Andrea Meijer, we will play this program, starting from the end of August this year. Check www.lajannmusic.nl for the most up-to-date playlist. We will continue our 'Ferlet' from March 2022.

PROLONGED TOUR ROBERT LONG

December 1, 2020

In September 2019, the plan was to reprise the theatre show 'De dag dat ik Robert Long ontmoette'.  Unfortunately, the corona pandemic didn't allow for these plans to go on. We have been able to continue our tour in the autumn of 2021.
