Linde Nijland is often called ‘best folk singer of the Netherlands’ (Heaven magazine). In the UK she’s perhaps best known for her sincere renditions of Sandy Denny’s song material. Her album “Sings Sandy Denny” was well received. Joe Boyd (producer of Nick Drake, Fairport Convention etc.) said “Linde Nijland has given Sandy Denny’s music the respect it deserves and has made a lovely and fresh record that shows off her beautiful voice as well as her good taste”. In 2009 he invited her to sing as part of an All-Star Fairport reunion concert in the Barbican Hall (together with Richard Thompson).

Besides this Linde has been performing and recording for many years with multi-instrumentalist Bert Ridderbos (“Seemingly a one-man orchestra” fRoots) on guitars, cittern, accordion, banjo and dobro guitar.

Live, Linde and Bert create a unique atmosphere. They perform Linde’s own songs, as well as Sandy Denny songs and traditional material. A capella songs are mixed with ballads, instrumental tunes and up-tempo sing-alongs.

During their evening with us, they will play their own and traditional material along with Linde’s brilliant renditions of Sandy Denny’s songs.
