Wannes Cappelle, broeder Dieleman & Frans Grapperhaus: Dit Is De Bedoeling

Put three well-versed folkies in a studio and changes are that they will come up with something that is greater than the sum of its parts. Dutch folk musician Broeder Dieleman joined forces with like-minded Flemish artist Wannes Capelle and Frans Grapperhaus came on board to play the cello. Singing in their respective Zeeuws-Flemish and West-Flemisch dialects (which are actually quite alike), these musicians have mastered the art of storytelling.

Dit Is De Bedoeling is a mini-album with six songs about father trying to get their children to drink, pirates led by a notorious leader holed up in a cave, and the fear of missing out being superseded by the simple fact that dinner is served. Spontaneity is key for these 21st Century balladeers. Being able to make it sound as if at was made up on the spot is quite hard. It only works when musicians have a real connection. Dieleman and Grapperhaus are able to write a song about anything, plus they share a wicked sense of humour and a childlike curiosity. Let's hope they do it again in the near future.

Dit Is De Bedoeling is thru Snowstar Records (Netherlands) and Unday Records (Belgium).
