Henrik Luurtsema – Mandolin Player from the Netherlands –…

Hendrik Luurtsema is a mandolin player from the Netherlands. I have recently discovered his mandolin videos when I was looking for other recordings of Midnight on the Water which I had just recorded for my youtube channel.

When I was looking for more information about Hendrik I found his new blog where he is sharing recordings and sheet music of mandolin tunes composed by him. Hendrik presents his pieces with some background information about what has inspired him to compose the tune and about his recording.

Hendrik has played in Bluegrass bands Close to Home (information in German) and before in a folk band name Trice. He is currently active with his duo luurtsema & klein

Hendrik is also an active member of the Mandolin Cafe, he has recorded many videos for the Song of the Week social club.

This is his tune Circus Luurtieful

Marijke and Michiel Wiesenekker – Amsterdams Mandoline en Gitaar…

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)
