The Alvaret Ensemble will do a short Dutch/Belgium tour from 6-11 December. The quartet extends to a sextet with Polish violist Olga Wojciechowska and Portuguese cellist Joana Guerra. The tour starts with an intimate kinda try-out show in the cosy theatre Dijktheater, for those who want to meet and greet the band. Then The Alvaret Ensemble carries on to Leuven (with Otto Lindholm), Utrecht (Fluister-gig), Heerlen (nice monastery), Den Haag (the State X New Forms festival) and ends in home town Leeuwarden in a small church. Directly after the tour the six will record new work together, intended for a new release in 2017.
It's been two years since the last Alvaret Ensemble show, so if you want to see the group play, this is your chance!

November 24th saw the release of Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra's (KBK) 6th album 'Dage'. It's released by Low Point as a grey cassette tape in a limited edition of only a 100 copies. 'Dage' contains four slow and dark pieces, typical KBK, but even more minimal and restrained than ever before. It's great to be back on Low Point again, that also released KBK's 2nd (vinyl) album 'Griis'.
To order 'Dage', go to Low Point's Bandcamp. More KBK-releases on the way!
