Piet Loose (België)
“Piet, you play the accordion, don't you?”, asked a colleague-musician. Technically I HAVE an accordion, I replied. "It doesn’t matter; if you accompany me, we can get free beer at the pub.”. And so it happened. For some reason, as a singer, I had already built up a considerable repertoire of French and Irish music. Step by step I learned to intergrate all this to the accordion.
Many adventures later I am an acoustic solo musician. Only with my voice and accordion I bring the French and Irish song treasure to life for a limited audience. From the exuberance of Brel and Bécaud to the emotion of Aznavour and Corbel. From the ambiance of The Dubliners and The Pogues to the serenity of an anonymous Irish band.
And, halfway through the trip, I sometimes get stuck elsewhere...
