    Episode 4: De Groningse Troebadoers

    First aired: Friday, 20 November 2015 at 18.00 hours

    This week in Soundcheck. Douwe Kool visits the Groningse Troubadours. Also this week, special video clips and we're curious to find out the 'golden oldie' of this week.

    The Groningse Troubadours Alex Vissering, Edwin Jongedijk and Jan Henk de Groot sheaf their stories and songs into a concert where the audience is mostly visiting. The Gronings dialect and their love for Americana brought them together and that's how they stood together in theatres for the first time as 'Troubadours'.

    Douwe visits theatre the Baron in Opeinde to talk with the Troubadours on their upcoming theatre tour. On his way there he meets the cycling music corps Crescendo who are also watching the show of that evening.


    About this program:

    Before a musician on stage is, the written press, composed, rehearsed and just before the gig the time comes for the Soundcheck!

    Soundcheck is the new music on Podium.TV. We are visiting a wide variety of musicians from the north. (Cover) bands, DJs, Dutch singers and singer-songwriters; musical northern Netherlands is discussed. Where they rehearse and how this is going to? How do you write a new song? And how does a CD presentation?

    So we end up in old garages, nostalgic rehearsal rooms, but also in professional studios and tasty busy music venues. Additionally, you can every week to enjoy a wide variety of video clips and a classic "golden oldies" from the old box.

    Tip the editors when you know a great band and want more of it as a groupie know.
