COLLABORATION JANNEKE WARRINGA, TOUR FRIESLAND

May 2, 2021

"Recently, I have been working together with the 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. Also, a brand new CD will be released soon."
