Broeder Dieleman: De Eerste Knecht

Dutch folk singer Broeder Dieleman has released De Eerste Knecht, the first one of two new songs about a life in the West part of Zeeuws Vlaanderen. It tells the tale of the righthand man of a farmer, who is in charge of taking cares of the horses. He is quite happy with his job and leading the beasts to a creek to let them drink fills him with great joy. He knows that the farmer and his wife are already sound asleep as he watches the sunset.

Dieleman's choice to sing in his native dialect should not be a problem - his music is universal. With prominent roles for his banjo and Janine van Osta's backing vocals, he taps into a well of folk that keeps on giving.

De Eerste Knecht is released via Snowstar Records.

Live dates:
  • 10/01 Rotown, Rotterdam
  • 10/05 Paradiso, Amsterdam
  • 10/07 TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht
