The Troubadour

As a troubadour I sing and speak from the heart. Sad, fruitful, redeeming or happy stories, with hope and Good news. Fairytales that seem too good to be true, but that ARE true. Selfpenned folksongs and pop-, folk- or gospelsongs from others, with fresh news from heaven. The journey as a troubadour began in the L’abricommunity in Eck en Wiel, but I try to make my home now almost everywhere. Solo, or with the band. I perform for instance in living rooms, churches, on the street, in prison, in the park, cafes, nursery homes and communities. In 2019 my third album came out, ‘FishLove’ , where I blend forró & samba with folkpop , with deep love songs about moving missionaries, merry mamas, hardworking farmers and about my lovely wife Ilse.
