Among us, About us

Frjemd Folk is a singing group of eleven enthusiastic men and two women dedicated to Celtic Folk Music. On the initiative of Bram van der Weg and Hinke Jelsma, who is also responsible for part of the musical accompaniment, the group emerged in 2007. Unlike many other groups in this genre, the emphasis is on our vocals. You can think of vocal, polyphonic music, with permanent musicians Anne J. Wagenaar guitar, Rutger Dijkstra violin, Janet Hardorff guitar and mandolin and Hinke Jelsma who plays bass, accordion and concertina.

Since its launch in 2007 is a versatile repertoire has arisen which will be constantly expanded and updated.

Frjemd Folk has proven to level, to present fascinating Celtic Songs with high quality. Our idea is: performance in small locations such as music bar, cultural centers, churches, but also on Celtic or Irish festivals. In 2014 we had several succesfull performances in Dublin and in 2016 we had several gigs in pubs in the Irish towns Westport and Clifden. In 2018 we visited Scotland and performed in Inverness and Pitlochry.

In 2016 we have released our first CD The Cliffs.

The program offered by us can be extended with Celtic tales and instrumental music therefore we are able to provide a full evening program.
