ALS DE WIND WAAIT
(music Toine Claessen)
In the seventies there was a rise of folk-bands from Great Britain and also in the Netherlands. We also got inspired and set up an acoustic trio called "Mangrove". We had a lot of self-written songs and wrote music for existing texts. Although we had many songs in English, the album . "Als de wind waait" (LP, 1976, Munich Records) contained only Dutch-language and instrumental songs.
Mangrove was Harrie Hawinkels, guitar, vocals and spoons, Steeph Custers, violin, mandolin and vocals, and Toine Claessen, guitar, mandolin, tin whistle and vocals.
