Celtic music from the Netherlands
Put together four musical guys-of-a-certain-age with a great love for authentic celtic Music, as well as a load of humour and sence of perspective and you will get the Dutch folkband "Windbroke"! However different the personalities of these gentlemen may be, the fascination for Celtic music brought them together years ago. Windbroke's history goes as far back as 1995. Since 2013 the band has had its present cast, wich spend lots of time rehearsing and organising gigs, projets and tours.
The characteristic folk music performed by Windbroke finds its origine in these regions that, way before the Roman Empire , were populated by the Celts. When the Romans started building their empire and exterminating the Celts, they left the coastal areas of Europe undisturbed. Thus Celtic influences remained in Ireland, Scotland, Normandy, northern Spain and Portugal. From these regions the band selects a number of both cheerful and tear-jearking songs, melancholy slow airs and lively dance tunes.. All this together with unespected humouros tales and pieces of information constitutes a performance not easily to be forgotten
Name of the band
"Life is not to be measured by the number of times one breathes but by the number of moments one is breathless."
