Driving Folk Punk with HoppaH!
It is very difficult (if not impossible) to stand still while watching and listening to one of the most energetic folk bands of The Netherlands: HoppaH! Suitable for big events such as festivals, but also for smaller clubs, bars and private parties. HoppaH! mixes all kinds of danceable European folk (klezmer, Balkan, gipsy, Irish, French) with styles like ska, reggae and punk. The line-up consists of very experienced musicians. Instruments they play are violin, clarinet, trombone, accordion, bass and drums. The singer has his own distinctive, raw voice; very suitable for the rather cynical texts (in Dutch). All music and texts are self-written by the members of HoppaH!
