UPCOMING EVENTS

Nanne Kalma and Ankie van der Meer-1
Thursday, August 11, at 7:30 pm

Since 1980, both in groups and as a duo, Nanne & Ankie (Kalma and van der Meer, respectively) have offered a wide repertoire of traditional as well as newly written songs in Dutch, Frisian, Esperanto, and English. Maritime and historical themes play an important role, but they also sing about humorous events from daily life, often putting music to Esperanto and Frisian poems as well as to lyrics by the Australian writer Michael Roads. In addition to singing, Nanne plays guitar, mandolin, and concertina; Ankie plays guitar.
