PROMO SHORT

Musical virtuoso Luuk Lenders is renowned for his creative folk music, featuring flutes and whistles, accordion, various foot percussion instruments, miniature harmonica, ping pong balls, and homemade instruments. 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 Arabian shepherd's flute rustles like a desert wind, the Irish tin whistle trills like a nightingale, and the Swedish overtone flute rocks your socks off.
