STENDELAAR.

STENDELAAR existed from October, 1981 until February 1987.

STENDELAAR started with playing all kinds of West-European instrumental traditional music. Gradualy the band played mostly Irish music. The band played only instrumentals.

STENDELAAR was a pure hobby band.
All band members were living in Amsterdam in Nederland, but are now scattered over planet Earth [Planet Earth].
