[TCM&DiN-Logo][The editor/hobby musician] Folk Groups & (Solo) Performers. with agenda itemsPRIORITY

Traditional Celtic folk groups, choirs, dance groups and solo performers in Nederland and their agendas and recordings.
[NL] Folkgroepen (bands), koren, dansgroepen en (solo) artiesten met traditionele Keltische muziek en dans in Nederland en hun agenda's en opnames.

Not all groups are listed yet. This is due to the fact, that the author is restricted by the following privacy rules:
people are only listed here at and according to their own request!!. But listing with only links to WWW pages is OK.

It is the intention that this page is 4-dimensional: historic performers should be listed here too together with the names and dates of their LPs, MCs and CDs.

If your group stopped or is in hibernation, please inform me about it and it will be shown. This makes life more easy for people looking for a band.
