Today will be our last day in The Netherlands. We’re heading to Utrecht to play at EKKO, a lovely place where I’ve been several times before. Last night we played the Let’s Get Lost festival in Zwolle. When I heard the name of the festival I was immediately reminded of the song Chet Baker used to sing . . . ooooooo let’s get lost . . . So I started our set with a droney violin version of that song. And later I found out the festival was indeed named after that song and the film about Chet Baker, which has the same name. The day before yesterday we played in Middelburg, where I once fell in love with a piano and ended up getting the owners to sell it to me for a remarkably good price (see the cover of Moments Eluding by Greg Haines). And there’s a man in Middelburg who has always organized my shows there, Tonnie Dieleman. Tonnie is about as sweet as they come . . . a real saint of a man. And he makes very pure and honest music under the name Broeder Dieleman. He rode with us in the car to Zwolle yesterday, as he was playing at the festival too, and treated us to a performance on the road with his boomy voice and shruti box. Best road music ever! Here is a sign from the toilet in our bed & breakfast in Middelburg. When I arrived there quite late in the evening and saw this sign, I actually laughed out loud all by myself.
