Your favourite sailor songs @ a lake

We will go sailing on a boat with you! Come along and enjoy the waves, while we go through our repertoire to see which sailor songs we can play for you. Drunken Sailor, Irish Rover, Skye Boat Song; these are of course a ‘must’ but we will play a lot more!

See if we can keep it dry during this live stream on Saturday, May 2nd at 17:00.
You can buy a ‘ticket’ for this livestream or for the effort we take to bring all this live music to you: what you pay for this ticket is totally up to you!

Zomerfolk 6 & 7 June 2020 Canceled

Dear visitors of Zomerfolk,

With pain in our hearts we have decided that Zomerfolk cannot take place on 6 and 7 June 2020.

We are currently living in an unreal world in which we want to try to protect you.

We realize that we are early with this decision and that we do not know what the state of play will be in June. However, as a band we come in many places and that is why we also come into contact with many people. We therefore consider the risk too great.

We warmly support our colleagues and in particular the organization of Keltfest and Elfia – who also have an event planned in the near future -. We really hope that their events can continue.

Because we really need a party like Zomerfolk now, we are investigating the possibilities of having it take place in September this year. Tickets already purchased remain valid.

We will keep you informed!

Be easy and free,

Rapalje Zomerfolk Festival
