David on Holiday

David in the water on vacation! With an invitation to our Celtic Folk Night on October 15 in Terheijden. Ground shaking jigs and reels, delicate ballads and a whiff of heavy metal provide you with the perfect opportunity to not care about every day life.

Webshop temporarily closed

Because we will be taking all merchandise to Zomerfolk this year and will travel on to England almost immediately afterwards, the webshop will be closed until June 22nd. The digital downloads are still available.

On June 23rd we will open the shop again and who knows, maybe even with some new products!

Celtic Folk Festival – Orvelte!

During our own Celtic Folk Festival in Orvelte on Sunday 22 May, two fantastic bands will be on stage: Fling and Cochon Bleu. Of course we also bring our infamous chaos and close this party with a set that lasts more than 1.5 hours. The festival takes place during the day and children up to the age of 12 have free entrance, so bring the whole family!

Dieb

“Where is Dieb and when will he be back on stage with you?” A question we have been asked numerous times for almost two years now. Our beloved Raggle Taggle Gypsy himself gave you the answer to this question in an emotional video.

After 27 years Dieb has left Rapalje, due to health reasons. We can hardly express into words how sad this has made us. So many wonderful memories, on and off stage, and not just with us: with you also! We will continue as a band and are confident we can carry on in a way that honors all of the work our wonderful friend has put into this band. We love you, Dieb!

Theater Backstage Livestream

A new livestream, behind the scenes at our theater show in Stadskanaal on april 1st at 17:00h, we are going to do part of the build-up of our Scotland’s Story theater show together. William will probably be busy preparing the meal, our cool techs are carrying all kinds of equipment and the dancers are practicing their last steps.

Will you be there to see how it really goes backstage in the theater?

Live on on Facebook, YouTube and our website

Rapalje in Borne naar 10 september

In goed overleg hebben Rapalje en Kulturhus Borne besloten om een nieuwe datum te zoeken voor het theaterconcert van zaterdag 19 maart a.s.
De vaart zit te weinig in de kaartverkoop om er het grote verbroederende muzikale feest van te maken, dat we met ons allen voor ogen hebben.
Daarom wordt het concert verplaatst naar zaterdag 10 september en wordt Rapalje de seizoensopener van Kulturhus Borne. We hopen jullie dan te zien in Borne!

 

Be easy and free,

William, Maceál, Dieb & David
