International Bagpipe Day – Rapalje Show 91

On March 10th it was International Bagpipe Day.

Right on the day that we also planned a livestream on Facebook. So David Myles came over to the Rapalje Studio and we showed the different bagpipes used at concerts from Rapalje..

International Bagpipe Day is now a well established and increasingly popular event. Every March 10th you are invited to go out and play your pipes – anywhere, anyhow to anyone! In 2013 we had an excellent event in Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford – amazingly – visitor numbers increased by 25% compared to normal attendance at that time of year. We also received reports back from around the world, ranging from a pipe band performance in an underground cavern in South Africa, to a party on an Athenian hill in Greece.

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

Livestream from concert theater Kielzog

Dear audience,

Our 25th anniversary year unfortunately goes very differently than planned, but we are persevering! As you know, many of our shows have been canceled, but on Friday March 20th you can attend a very special and already historic concert from your living room! For this show, which starts at 8:15 PM via the link below, you can buy a ‘ticket’ through a voluntary donation. You determine the price yourself and this is not required to view. This way you can help us directly to get bread on the table and above all we can escape together to a world full of music and fun: will you be there? Stream and tickets: https://rapalje.com/nl/stream/
* Please share this post as much as possible *

Be Easy And Free

David, Dieb, Maceál & William

Belangrijk nieuws!

Morgen (zondag 15 maart) rond 14:30 zullen wij live een optreden verzorgen dat voor iedereen gratis online te volgen is! Culturele ondernemers in Groningen hebben zich verenigd en verzorgen sinds 17:00 uur vandaag 24 uur lang live een festival (zonder bezoekers) dat online gestreamd wordt via EM2 Livestream. Wij zouden het fantastisch vinden als jullie morgen allemaal meekijken!

Wij krijgen momenteel veel vragen van jullie over wat jullie extra kunnen doen om ons te steunen en te supporten. Dat vinden we heel erg lief en zullen we morgen nog wat kleine ideeën over geven, maar het belangrijkste vinden wij dat jullie blijven luisteren en kijken naar ons, genieten van onze muziek en ons vooral niet vergeten  Als dat gebeurd, redden wij het als band zeker wel!

Be easy and Corona-free!

Belangrijk nieuws inzake shows maart 2020!

Om verspreiding van het Coronavirus in te dammen heeft de Nederlandse overheid gisteren besloten dat evenementen met meer dan 100 bezoekers t/m 31 maart worden afgelast. Dit betekent helaas dat wij onze shows van aanstaande zondag in Westerbork, 19 maart in Barneveld, 20 maart in Stadskanaal, 21 maart in Haaksbergen en 27 maart in Oostburg moeten annuleren. Gelukkig hebben we voor Westerbork, Stadskanaal en Oostburg al een nieuwe datum kunnen regelen. Voor de overige 2 zijn we, samen met de betreffende theaters nog druk op zoek naar een oplossing. Daarover horen jullie meer zodra er wat bekend is.

Je kaartjes blijven geldig voor de nieuwe shows en je wordt vanuit de theaters geïnformeerd. Voor vragen over Westerbork kun je contact met ons opnemen: contactgegevens kun je vinden op onze website: www.rapalje.com.

Nieuwe data:

Westerbork: 4 oktober 2020
Barneveld: nnb
Stadskanaal: 30 april 2020
Haaksbergen: nnb
Oostburg: 25 april 2020

We hopen jullie allemaal op deze nieuwe data te zien, zodat we samen een mooi feestje kunnen bouwen! Voor Stadskanaal en Oostburg zijn er nog tickets verkrijgbaar.

Be easy and Corona-free!
