Celts in Kilts:
Our first recorded CD. Rapalje was performing as a duo: Dieb and Maceál. After the Audio Cassette Tape, the second attempt to record some music.
With a self build microphone and a mini-disc recorder, we played our tunes and songs at Dieb’s place and in O’Ceallaigh Irish Pub in Groningen NL
After recording this CD, We decided to let William join the band!
The word “Rapalje” (Dutch), “Rakish” (English), “Rapaille” (French) and “Randale” (German) have almost the same meaning: “carelessly unconventional”. And that was the original translation from the dictionary. In most cases the word will be used for people who are a bit naughty.. or worse..
Wack fol the Daddy-o
On the Cover of this CD our daddies: Piet, Jan and Aaldrik. Sitting in front of O’Ceallaigh Irish pub in Groningen. The could and would play the instruments they’re holding. Some people thought our daddies were also the musicians on this CD. So the same people wondered how young we look on stage.
