And a new one just begun! What can we say…2013 has been a good one.. We released our first CD, we performed at many awesome venues and festivals where we had the good fortune to play for sweet and enthusiastic people, we made some very nice new friends, hung out with old ones and we have grown not only musically, but in number as well! We welcomed bass player extraordinaire Evert Willemstijn into the Finvarra family and already we couldn’t imagine Finvarra life without him anymore.
What will 2014 hold? More of the same hopefully! We already have some awesome new shows booked and look forward to performing at new festivals and venues with our dear colleagues from the dutch folkscene (isn’t it cool that such a small country holds so much folkbands?). We’re also hard at work on some new exciting material which we hope to debut live this spring, so if you’re curious, be sure to take a gander at our gigs page !
Don’t see a gig near you at the moment? Don’t fret, we’re busy planning new ones all the time, and if you know of a suitable venue or festival near where you live that might welcome us, don’t be shy! Let us know, and more importantly, let the venue of festival know that you’d like to see us perform there. It really helps us!
But enough of that, all that remains now for us is to whish you a splendid, sparkly, shiny, healthy, blessed 2014! Now where’s the champagne?
Love and peace to all!
-Corné, Patrick, Dieke, Evert and Gwen
