Marijke and Michiel Wiesenekker are the Amsterdams Mandoline en Gitaar Duo. I have met them several times during the last years – sometimes together with there parents – and it has always been a great fun and experience to jam with them until late at night.
Marijke has studied mandolin in Wuppertal, and Michiel has studied the classical guitar. They are playing a broad selection of bluegrass, blues, folk, classical and jazz – and I like their style very much.
They have recorded several CDs and composed many new tunes for mandolin and guitar. Marijke often plays her old Gibson A mandolin, but sometimes she does also play her electric Rickenbacker mandolin. They have taken part in the mandolin symposium in California and they are teaching in Germany and the Netherlands.
I am very happy that there are several nice videos of Marijke and Michiel Wiesenekker from workshops and concerts in the Netherlands and from the mandolin symposium.
Here is a selection of the videos:
Xtra strings – Peaches & Regalia (Frank Zappa)
Xtra strings – Flatbush Waltz (Andy Statman)
