Luuk Lenders - musical whizz
Musical virtuoso Luuk Lenders is renowned for his creative folk music, featuring flutes and whistles, accordion, various foot percussion instruments, table bells, and ping pong balls. He is often seen playing three or four instruments at the same time!
Luuk's concerts are adventurous and captivating, heartwarming and funny: before you know it, you'll be smiling and clapping along. A collector of flutes, Luuk can get a tune out of almost every instrument. The Irish tin whistle trills like a nightingale, the table bells tinkle as a melodious waterfall, and the piano accordion rocks your socks off.
A magnificent mix of folk music from the Celtic regions and the Netherlands, combined with own compositions, improvisations, and surprising acts.
In 2017, Luuk released his debut "Bosduif".
In the autumn of 2023, Luuk is touring with his double album "Het Groene Woud"! 26 songs of Dutch and Irish folk music, themed around green woods, gurgling creeks and foresty birdsong.
