Music groups on Easter Saturday
This year three music groups will join our festival on Saturday afternoon. They will play at several locations in the city center, from 16h00.
Jan en Alleman
Folk orchestra Jan en Alleman ("John and Everyone") plays lively folk music from Belgium and abroad. Since they started in 1981 many musicians have played in the group. Driving force and leader of the band is Jan Geuns. "Everyone" currently consists of two violins, two flutes, a clarinet, a cello and an accordeon.
De Kleine Kornemuze
Literally called "The small bagpipe(band)" this band of enthoused amateurs has introduced the unique sound of the Flemish bagpipe to the public at many parades and parties. They're the little brother of De Grote Kornemuze, which can light the fire of even a 15,000+ audience in the Antwerp Sportpaleis.
Folk musicians from Westerlo and surroundings, linked to Westelfolk, bring a varied programme of old and new folk melodies and dances, on traditional instruments like diatonic accordeon, flemish dulcimer, violin, recorder, hammered dulcimer and more.
