Theme: World Music

Acoustic Roots will welcome folkgroup The Lasses in January 2018.

On Friday 12th January 2018 The Lasses will perform in the Kargadoor on the Oudegracht in Utrecht for the programme Acoustic Roots. As well as lots of music Karin van den Boogaert will talk to Margot Merah and Sophie Janna and ask them all sorts of questions.

The Irish and American folk traditions have obviously strongly influenced the song choice and the work of The Lasses. The Lasses were on a lot of national and international podia , play every year for a few weeks in America and tour Dutch churches, folk clubs and living rooms.

Last year The Lasses toured the Netherlands with the American violinist Kathryn Claire, with whom they recorded their new album . OOR called the album “a pearl for folk music”. During this live recording for the Concertzender Sophie and Margot songs from the album and their own new works.
