LAURA CANNELL (uk)
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
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. http://www.kanipchen-fit.com/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qSrJKSKoEQ https://www.facebook.com/KANIPCHEN-FIT-234435140803/
THE FLAMENCO THIEF (uk)
Back in Leiden, back at Vrijplaats! One guy, one guitar, looppedals
and percussion. Flamenco… but slightly different! Upbeat, danceable
flamenco, with elements of ska, rumba and beats! Named as one of the
“rising stars” in the British scene. He is always on the road, playing
over 400 shows in 2,5 years. Just returned from Ukraine, Romania and
Serbia. Next year he will head to Brazil. Never a dull moment.
