Plunder is a pirate partyfolk band from Leeuwarden, the Netherlands. The band makes danceable Dutch songs and chanteys about desire, love and freedom and always get the party going. Plunder consists of five enthusiasts with authentic instruments and the need to make music. Influenced by various styles such as Irish folk, balkan, country, ska and klezmer the group creates their own rousing and energetic sound. With a gig of this bunch of troublemakers every place they visit will definitely be plundered!
‘Twibv’ was created as an excuse for a group of friends to play music together, but quickly grew to be a fully fledged folk-pop band with original material. Playing music and telling stories, that’s what we love to do. Whether these stories originate in literature, poetry, nature, our own experiences or our imagination doesn’t really matter. We use an enormous variety of instruments (the counter is almost at 15!), different languages and most importantly: plenty of humour, even in songs about death and tragedy. Using (among other things) piano, ukulele, violin, whistles, cajon and vocals, we’re about to tell you a few of our favourite tales.
In 2015, we made a short cd named ‘Snippets’, and at the moment we’re busy writing and recording plenty of new tracks. What do the letters in ‘Twibv’ stand for, you ask? That’s a secret. But we’re open to your craziest suggestions…!
Twibv plays on Saturday at Keltfest.
Kilkenny Knights are 8 musicians right out of the beautiful heart of Germany. The young band made their way on playing Celtic Rock music. They take traditional folk instruments like mandolin, accordion, tin whistle or the booming bagpipes and combine them with sick e- guitar lines and drum beats – all in all a real blast! Inspired by well-known Celtic bands, they formed their own style called “devil’s dance music”, so you have to expect a fiery show! You’ll hear songs about the joy of drinking and scuffling, sweet love and hate, myths and legends from all over the world as well as all the other stuff that you need to have a big party – A great atmosphere from the pub to the festival! With four male voices and one female, they create a chameleonic stage presence full of power and fun. This music is all that you need to have a great day with your friends and some cool pints. Forget about your daily routine and hoist the sails for a journey to the green isles! Slaìnte – or as we say in Germany – Prost!
