The park concerts 2022 will start on Thursday 4 August 2022 in the presbytery garden of Moortsele with the performance of Raske Drenge (BE/FO). Expect a perfect evening in a magical setting. The rectory garden is transformed into a listening garden. You get a young duo, one is from Faroe Islands and the other is Flemish. They bring folk with strong roots in Scandinavian and North Atlantic traditional music. With its own twist. Half of the duo is the Herentals violinist Oscar Beerten, accompanied by guitarist and singer Ragnar Finsson from Faroe Islands. With the Norwegian Hardanger violin combined with that peculiar and beautiful Faroese language, Raske Denge knows how to merge melancholy, beauty and sadness into a fresh youthful energy. How it started? In 2017 Oscar and Ragnar get to know each other in Sweden. They study there at the Folk and World Music Department in Malmö. They quickly create a concert-ready set with their own compositions and trads. They perform with great success in Malmö and Copenhagen.
You also get unique opportunities to attend these concerts for free at the other park concerts with Frimout, Cisco Herzhalft Trio with Tom De Wulf and Yokan. Thank you, Cultuurdienst Oosterzele. Come and enjoy blissful evenings of music. But first come and meet the duo Raske Denge on Thursday 4 August, armed with captivating and compelling folk and world music. Oscar and Ragnar, strong personalities and rich in languages.
In 2008 Cultuurdienst Oosterzele went on an experimental tour with park concerts in the rectory garden in Moortsele. We have known the answer for a long time now. There is clearly an audience for it. An interested audience shows up every time. To give the inhabitants of Oosterzelen the feeling that the park is also their garden, where it is wonderful to meet each other. A pleasant evening among friends. On Thursday, August 4, ‘Speelplein Kriebel pleasure’ will be in charge of the park bar. (mvdv, photos ddl).
