December 2020 After confirmation
about the two Second Harvest shows on 9 en 10 January, we have a
new lockdown and the shows will be postponed after all.
Second Harvest news: 9 and 10 January we play our 4th annual Neil Young tribute in Paradox, Tilburg.
For now we assume that these shows will go on as planned: two
shows for 30 people each, so the tickets will be sold out even
quicker than the last 3 editions! (hint hint). Be fast when
they'll be on sale on the Paradox website. More info soon! Watch and
listen to 'When you dance' from the January 2020 show
May 2020 I'm sad to say that not only all shows, but also the EP recordings
are postponed because of, I don't need to tell you... But that CD will get there somehow, we'll be
rehearsing again soon! In the meantime I'm doing lots of other stuff, like: recording
ukulele covers, requests from my facebook friends. You'll find
them on my You Tube channel
come!) Musiclessons are not only given online anymore, but (when the
weather allows) also face-to-face again outside in the park!
Doesn't work so well with vocal lessons, but it works perfectly
for guitar and ukulele! :-)
Like many other self-employed musicians, I'm also making a virtue of necessity: the music lessons are currently only
given online. Especially for the ukulele course it works like
a charm! Now you will be happy playing ukulele anyway, and online
music lessons are no different... So do you need some
distraction between working from home? Come 'n Skype! :-) More info on the music lessons
page (it's in Dutch, but copy the text and throw it through google
Well the die is cast, 'the head is off' and 'the bullet is through
the church' as they call it in The Netherlands: in between the other music projects of the
individual musicians, we'll be working on a new CD that will be
released this fall!
With Eric van Dijsseldonk on guitars and vocals, Lucas Beukers on
bass, and a 'to be named' drummer, this will be allllriiiight and we're
looking forward! :-)
This month we are practicing for our annual Neil
Young tribute show in January. For the third time
our late local Neil Young cover band 'Second Harvest' will play a
tribute to a classic NY album. This year we play After The
Goldrush (and other songs from that era), again with a full band
and guestmusicians! And again we count on a packed and sold out
house, just like the other years! :-)
... in the meanwhile... my new sixties/seventies duo T ViLiaal (yep
that's Dutch, kind of ;-)) started up, together with Vic, leadsinger from
Neil Young tribute band Second Harvest: follow
our facebookpage! :-) Also the poetry book - for which I
composed music for one of the poems - will be presented soon, with live
music from me and other artist! AND
there's new plans for another Neil Young tribute in January,
our third! This and more, if you happen to be in the neighbourhood:

Next Sunday March 12: Songwriters Jukebox! (the last one of this
season). In the beautiful chapel of Cultural Centre Jan van Besouw
in Goirle, three artists play their favourite covers (and one
original). This time with MOI :-) And yes, it's a jukebox so: the
audience chooses which covers we play, from the long, long list of

Yup, these things only happen in Tilburg.. Guess who I'm gonna
25 September 2016 What een lovely late summer weather this week! But the Dutch summer
is really ending now and The Autumn Leaves, pass by my window etc.
For this fall I have some lovely and warming shows
coming up, among which four with New York's fabulous singer-songwriter
Harrod who is currently touring through Europe. I was happy to book him six shows, and will be singing
some backingvocals during four of them, and will also open for him
for two of the four shows. Looking forward!
after a long time, finally another show with my own band! I've been very busy
with various projects
and commercial work, but this fall I'll be working on new songs and
promotion for next season.
10 August 2016 Last Monday I had a beautiful meetup with Martiska Petrovic, a
musician who posted a simple and spontanious video from a
coversong, that she played by herself or with another musician,
EVERY Monday during the least year. The 51th Monday was with MOI :-)

HURRAY! I've upgraded my website with the absolutely GORGEOUS
photography by Izaak Slagt (all the big pics above). It got me in
a blue mood as you can see (no, not really ;-)), but making the
website blue all over, instead of just the middle table like it
was, gives the photo's the attention that they deserve. It's just
more calm and simple. Simple is good. I like simple. More
upgrades will follow later.. later ;-)

Playing with Sleepwater in Café Extase, Tilburg, Dec
3rd (photo's: J + W Festen).
My last gig with these guys will be Jan 23rd; a matter of
priorities for me..
Nice bunch of shows again in the agenda, with my own songs ánd
with other bands Second Harvest and Sleepwater (among which opening for Mark
Olson, ex-frontman Jayhawks, on December 3rd).
The photo underneath is taken by Hugo Verkley, from a duo
performance with me and Eric in a venue in one of the old small 'wharf
cellars' by the canal in the city of Utrecht.
5 Sept Yay! Liseth On Air! This is a selfie in the foyer of the
National Radio studio in Hilversum, media-city (end July). I did
an interview and my EP was the reward of the cryto-game in the
show ;-) Well, besides that and another radio-gig I didn't do much
in the summer, but now it's back to work!
13 June It's official: 'Kites and Traffic lights', the EP I recorded
in Sacramento with Michael Roe and Mark Harmon, is
And what an AWESOME night it was, last Thursday at the EP
launch show: full house, good crowd, good sound, and some realy
fine musicians. What more could I've asked for? :-)
(photo's: Wil Opstals)
I started the show solo, then played two songs with Eric (guitar/vocals)
and Peer (pedalsteel), and a few songs (also semi-acoustic) with the other two bands I
play with (the Neil Young tribute, and the guitarpop band). Funny to be your own supporting act ;-) After a short break I played the EP with my new band
The Lost and Found (with Eric, and
Lucas on standup bass), and an occasional song with our guest Peer on
pedalsteel. I'm looking forward to play more
shows with these heroes! :-)
21 May .. yes, we are rehearsinck.. in ze livingroom... for ze official EP release party on 11
February 2015 - Working on new projects for 2015, and new repertoire.
This Spring will be exiting! :-) I'm looking forward to present my
new EP that was recorded in California (wut?! why?!
Because it was fun and I'll explain the rest to you later).
AND I'll climb the stage again playing my own songs, presenting my
new band with Dutch heroes Lucas Beukers on bass and Eric van
Dijsseldonk on guitar and vocals (photo: try-out gig in October
2014). They're both still touring now (all of us are in various
bands and projects), but me and Eric will sit down soon to try and
write some songs together (yey!). So more new stuff coming
up, and more recording is planned for the fall. Stay tuned! :-)
More news on the EP soon..
