New edition of this FREE festival! And again an international line-up
of outstanding musicians&artists


Laura Cannell (uk; violin&double flute- medieval music)
Kanipchen-Fit (nl/us; poetic hamonic noise)

The Flamenco Thief (uk, flamenco bt slightly different..)
DJ Daniel Quiros (spain, dancedancedance)

Magical. And mindblowing! Laura plays fiddle with a deconstructed
violin bow – hairs over the top of the fiddle and stick underneath,
giving a 4 string hurdy-gurdy droning effect. She reconstructs the
music of 12th century mystic&nun Hildegard Von Bingen on double
flute, her left hand weaving an alto counterpoint around the right
hand melody.

Her visit to Leiden is part of her special visit to the Netherlands in
order to play the amazing Le Guess Who Festival in Utrecht.

Check her music and videos!!




KANIPCHEN-FIT (a'dam/usa)
Since 2004, Kanipchen-Fit is a noisy, raucous and whole-hearted
three-piece band, fronted by Empee Holwerda (ex- of the great dutch
bands Lul and Solbakken) on guitar and vocals and performance artiste
and poet Gloria (from the usa). Now they play with drummer Frank Sloos
(ex-drummer for bands amazing dutch bands Treble Spankers, Big Paulus
and many more).
Their strong suit is making an intelligent and inspiring racket. The
songs are simple and straightforward with double vocals and unexpected
rhythmic and harmonic changes. Shifting from aggressive pieces to
melancholic songs, with lots of funky moves in between. They groove to
Nina Simone to Bad Brains. This trio takes on very diverse subjects
like; prison entertainment, heroic alcoholics, torture on the radio,
and late night braggadocio. They released their album “Multibenefit”
and a 7″ with Zea.



Back in Leiden, back at Vrijplaats! One guy, one guitar, looppedals
