I Never played outside of my livingroom....:-) and sing my whole repetoire wherever I am, mostly Luke Kelly stuff. I still think Luke was the God of Trad. There was and never will be anyone who could stand in his shadow....

What does it take to write a GOOD (or better even : GREAT) song??

Hi all :-)I've been doing some writing and recording lately, the results of which I posted here on my page. It's one of my favourite pass-times writing songs, devising the melody around it, sing and…Continue

the Balladeer

This group is meant for anyone with a profound love for, or anyone who loves to sing the irish ballad. As badge for this group I uploaded a pic of Luke Kelly, balladeer. This should say enough about what I have in mind, I think...Luke Kelly and Ronny Drew were, so to speak,  "My Founding Fathers" concerning Irish music, and I fear we will never see their likes again...Anyway, if Sean Nos is not entirely your thing, and you want to talk Dubliners, Paddy Reilly or the Fureys kind of stuff, this…See More

Hi Kees!

Sounds like you're getting along fine with your Löfgren. Keep up the good work mate!

All the best, Lars

Hi, Kees!!

How are you? Hope you're doing well.

Any news from Holland? Are you playing some tunes?

Here in Rosario the weather is very warm these days... too much I must say!

This year I'm planning to take part of the Willie Clancy summer in Milltown Malbay school and spend a few months in Ireland to improve my banjo skills.

Will I see you there? They say is an extraordinary experience!

Well.. that's all by now... hope to see you there or anywhere to share a session! Bye!!

Hiya Kees!!! Just listened to your Soundcloud posting of "An Paistin Fionn". Very nicely done!!! For a minute I thought to myself, "Hey,... how did Kees pick the same song as me to record and post???" I'm still recording some tracks of it and then have to mix it all,...then I can post it on TC. It'll have an intro of "Si Bheag, Si Mhor" and blend into Niamh Parson's version of "An Paistin Fionn" (one of the first Irish songs I heard and learned). I can only hope I do it justice.

Anyway,....glad to see you're still active and cranking-out those tunes. Cheers,

ik weet niet of je dit interessant vind maar er zijn in Vlaardingen bijna elke week op donderdag avond keltische sessies, vanavond is het een speciale in "de Krabbeplas" Surfpad 50 Vlaardingen dan worden er namelijk opnames gemaakt om te gebruiken als een radio programma op radio vlaardingen. Ik zet elke sessie waar ik van hoor en in de buurt is op mijn Facebook .

Hey Kees. Just wanted to extend an invitation for you to join "Storytellers: The Gift of Gab & The Golden Tongue",..a new group I started (since I see you enjoyed Kathleen & Billy's "The Devil & Bailliff McGlynn"). Perhaps we can get a few stories out of you. Cheers, mate. Hope all's well in your end of the world.

Thank you Kees!  Very much!

I will take some time tomorrow and have a listen. 

We wrapped up a recording 2 mos. ago and it's in the mix process now....So, we won't be recording again for at least a year.  If we do use it, it will be protected and registered anyway, and you will be credited, as part of the registration of our music.

Drink up, me hearty, yo ho!!! I'm working on it (getting some songs ready for posting). Still learning the recording and mixing thing on my TASCAM DP24. 'Tis a work in progress, laddie!!! And thirsty work to boot!!! Think I'll join ye with a Guiness me-self. Cheers, my friend,

Hey Kees, Love your recent posting of Seamus McInnes. I see you're still at it, but I've got to wonder: Have ye got any "KEES'S GROUPIES" yet???

Now, get back to work and post more songs!!! Cheers, mate,

Hello Friends in Trad!!  Some time ago, with nothing at hand, an idea came to me for a song...So I took up a pencil and paper and wrote some lyrics. Now a voice-only recording is OK, but in this case I thought "what the heck", I'll see if I can find some help on this...So I have asked Joe and Adele, from Dulahan, if they would play the tune that I…
