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

So many awards!

Wow what an honor! Yesterday, after our show in Het Kielzog in Hoogezand, we were totally overwhelmed by no less than 3 Fantasy Awards! We were personally presented with the awards by our good friend Mark van der Stelt from Vana Events.

The award for “Best Merch” for the Rapalje Songbook, “Thanks for the Laugh” for our bird show during Zomerfolk 2019 and the “Positivity award” especially for Maceàl who creates wonderful livestreams for you every Tuesday, even during the COVID years. We want to say a big thank you to everyone for voting and of course CeltCast for organizing these fantastic awards!

Harderwijk 2 april

Bad news unfortunately. In consultation with Theater Harderwijk, we had to decide to cancel tonight’s performance “Scotland’s Story” and move it to Saturday, April 2, 2022.

This decision was not an easy one; we have never canceled a performance due to weather conditions before and would have loved to brave the storm for you. However, your safety is our top priority. People with a ticket are also informed by the theater. Take care everyone today and see you soon!

A taste of Scotland’s Story

Our Scotland’s Story shows have all been sold out untill now, hopefully we can have more guests at the shows soon. So we wanted to give you a little taste of Scotland’s Story, a great new theater show with lots of song, dance and Rapalje joy for all.

We will be playing Scotland’s Story in many theaters in the Netherlands, check our agenda for a show near you, see you soon!

See you in Breda!


On February 12th we will come to Breda with our brand new theater show “Scotland’s Story”! There are still a few tickets available, but now show after show sells out fast, we advise you to act quickly.

During this show, with dance, sing-alongs like “Caledonia” and “Wat Zullen We Drinken” will pass by and of course songs from our most recent album “Scotland’s Story”. We also have a small selection of our merchandise and some special offers that only apply in the theaters. We are really looking forward to it and hope to see you at this special show!

Of course we can’t wait until everything is possible again without measures, but we see this as a step in the right direction. Check the measures in force regarding Covid via our agenda at the relevant theaters. We will keep you informed of all planned shows in the near future.

We’re back again!

Since last Tuesday’s press conference, we have been in constant contact with the theaters. We are therefore very happy that we will start again with our Scotland’s Story theater tour, the next shows are in Zevenaar (29/1), Veenendaal (2/2) and Heiloo (5/2). And we are allowed to sell our merch before each show! We’ll take a small selection with us, which completely fits this show and it is possible to pay by card.

Of course we can’t wait for everything to be possible again without measures, but we see this as a step in the right direction. We are therefore very happy that we can play for you again. Are you ready for Scotland’s Story?
