Soon we will play Scotland’s Story again, in the beautiful Amphitheater Lommerrijk in Luttenberg and a day later in one of our favorite theatres, the Kulturhus in Borne. Will we see you at one of these beautiful places?
Tickets are still available, links via https://rapalje.com/nl/agenda/
We go to an idyllic small town on the Saar, the center of a romantic river and vineyard landscape. We are going to enjoy the waterfall, which lies in a river with a funny Dutch name: “De Leuk” a tributary of the Saar and plunges 20m down here. Of course it is always nice to see the playful half-timbered facades and nice little bridges in the city and when it gets dark a great concert degenerates where we are of course!
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.

It is still full on summer, but we are already looking forward to starting our theater shows again, Scotland’s Story is coming to Borne to kick off the theater season there, it’s going to be an amazing show, will you join us there?
We were supposed to reopen the webshop this week, but due to the huge sales on Zomerfolk we have been given room for new products. We are now going to work on that first, so that they can also be in the shop as soon as we open it again. Just a little patience, but we promise it will be worth the wait!
The Zomerfolk program is online! If you don’t have tickets yet, order them quickly via https://zomerfolk.nl/tickets/ or get them at the cash register. The weather forecasts are fantastic and we are looking forward to it after all this time!
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!
“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!

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?
