Dieb has informed us that it’s not possible to play with us yet after all.
We have organized a Watch Party for tonight where everyone can ask their questions to David, Maceál and William in the chat on Facebook and we will try to answer them all. Via the link below we are going to look back at how things went in our livestream “@ William’s Place”.
Our livestream on Thursday, July 2nd is one you’ll want to see! Then, for the first time since March 15th, our raggle-taggle-gypsy Dieb will be joinin us again to play some songs for you! So make sure you’re ready with your drink at 8pm (CET) so you can let him and us know in the comments how happy you are about this. We are very excited!
Have you always wanted to take a good look at our studio? Normally we rehearse mainly on the road or during performances, but today we used our studio again. We’ll tell you nice anecdotes about our studio experiences of the past and present and of course play a lot of music for you. And you can ask us questions in the chat or via our Facebook page. We’ll see you on June 19 at 7:00 PM!
To let everyone experience a small piece of Zomerfolk, we have done a special live stream. Do you want to enjoy the sounds of the festival at home, then sit back and remember our slogan: “The more you drink, the better they sound.” Several bands have participated so it is a special broadcast with some news you don’t want to miss!
Enjoy this very special live stream, in collaboration with the Sealcenter Pieterburen (Zeehondencentrum Pieterburen), from a sandbank in the Wadden Sea. This is because of a special occasion: three seals taken in by the Sealcenter are allowed to return to nature. Rapalje will take them to sea and play towards the moment of release.
Both Rapalje and Pieterburen are Groningen crowd favourites who have been able to reach thousands of people with various live streams in recent months. During this, a combination of live acoustic music and conversations about seals and the mudflats will be broadcast. The combination of seals and music is not very far-fetched. This summer, the Sealcenter will open an exhibition dedicated to the language and sense of rhythm of seals.
The cooperation between the Sealcenter Pieterburen and Rapalje is a striking one, but there are two nice similarities. First, both of them had been able to reach thousands of people through live streams of music or seals being cared for throughout the COVID-19 crisis. Second, seals and music have more in common than people generally assume. Seals have been proven to have a sense of rhythm and can “parrot”!
Precisely now pups are born at a certain location in the Wadden Sea that require intensive care from their mother for a few weeks. This bond is often broken due to disruption. Rapalje would like to make sure that these animals get well again.
As Maceál already told during Keltfest Online, we have found some old and rare pieces of merchandise. Test DVDs, mini CDs and more that are all in perfect condition but have never been in our webshop. We are now going to sell all these items and we have all signed them! Be quick because of most of them only a few are available and these will never be for sale again!
We have already visited many special locations during our live streams, but Monday May 25th will certainly be one of the highlights of our career. Due to the COVID-19 situation, WILDLANDS Adventure Zoo Emmen (NL) had to close its doors for a long time. As from Monday, this beautiful park will be open to the public again and we will play during this festive moment! Watch the live stream at 10:00 am (CET) or watch it back later; it will certainly be unforgettable. Would you like to visit WILDLANDS? Then go to https://www.wildlands.nl/ and reserve a day for your visit. And to support us, get your ‘ticket’ for this livestream at: https://rapalje.com/stream/
Let’s celebrate that this is a cautious step in the right direction and hopefully we can experience more and more of these wonderful moments together (online or in person). Be easy and free!
