I don’t often listen to Dutch Folk music. Partly because I don’t tend to listen to music from the Netherlands (there ain’t much of it around see) and also because I don’t often listen to folk. Understand? Complex reasoning I know…
However, I Am Oak has taken my fancy. Maybe it’s because their name makes no sense, though I guess it’s catchier than I Am Horse-Chesnut or I Am Quercus (a joke for Naturalist readers of SGTMT, by ‘Naturalists’ I mean people who like nature, not people who take their clothes in public spaces. Thought I’d mention that to avert any unfortunate confusion).
I Am Oak is not actually just one tree anyway, but a mini-forest of a band built around Thijs Kuijken (no idea how to pronounce that). In July they released Nowhere Or Tammensaari to much acclaim and Reins is the latest single from the album. Enjoy:
