Snowapple in London

One of my favourite bands from Amsterdam is currently in London. I’m jeallous. I  want to go back to London!
If you are in London, I would like to recommend you to visit one of Snowapple’s concerts. You will not be bored or dissapointed, I promise!

Revieuw:

“These three talented young multi-instrumentalists and singers from Amsterdam are full of musical surprises – I caught this trio of Dutch songbirds by chance, playing a short impromptu set at The Runcible Spoon restaurant in Bristol in the autumn, where they charmed their audience with sweet harmonies, light up-beat numbers with a country feel and most of all their quirky, joyful delivery. SnowApple’s music is infectious and has a feel-good quality that will put a smile on your face and get your feet tapping.”

If maybe perhaps (possible, right?)  you don’t like the music in the clip- above,  you should go to one of their concerts anyway. I’ve never experienced any artist as versatile and different (already at this age!) as Snowapple performing live before…

De Tanker

Amsterdam is full of cool cultural hotspots.

One of “my” newest discoveries is in the upcoming neighbourhood Amsterdam Noord (North).  De Tanker is a  former gasstation, painted pink. The foundation Stichting Samenscholers manages De Tanker and organises cultural events and get-togethers for the neighbourhood. From sing-along nights, intimate concerts, expositions, meditation sessions and even a dinner on Liberation day, everything seems possible.

Remember I told you about the fresh female vocalists I listened to last December? (Click) Snowapple played at De Tanker on the 3rd of May. They were lovely, beautiful & gorgeous as always. Oh yeah and my….. can they sing!

Christmas Carols and goosebumps; Snowapple

After a busy wknd I did not plan to spend Sunday night outside the house. But… I had already heard that there would be a good band (that I had never heard about) playing in a local “brown café”. The name “brown café” comes from the dark but cosy wooden interiors and the nicotine-stained walls and ceilings  (Explanation from IAmsterdam over HERE), a must-see if you’re a tourist in Amsterdam.

Spontaneously I decided to have a drink and check out the band anyway. Luckily! I was not dissapointed.

The 3 young, fresh and non-stop smiling ladies of the Dutch band Snowapple, are incredibly talented, they have a lot of fun when they perform and theycreate a happy atmosphere. They play with their voices, they’re multi- talented, they play dozens of instruments together (From guitar to ukelele, mandoline,  klokkenspiel, accordeon to violin- and for sure much more) and they definitely know how to give a show. They gave me goosebumps when they sang A capella, they used their voices as instruments, I FELT their music.  They’re all singer-songwriters and despite their young ages they are already experienced professionals. If you ever get the chance to check them out, do so! They describe their style as Cowboy Christmas and it was surely a pleasure to listen to.

I had the feeling the audience of the bar was not the audience they generally are used to perform for, and yet they got the place to rock! For € 6,- I bought one of their Christmas cd’s so I can enjoy them at home too.
