ABOUT NATTERJACK

Last year this amazing ensemble played a tribute to their favorite band: Flook, the famous Irish traditional folk band. Maartje Valk (flute) and Mike Bailey (guitar/fiddle) met for the first time on the streets of The Hague, while Mike was playing his songs and Maartje was secretly listening to his music. After their first performance, Todd Giles officially joined the duo with his tenor banjo.

 

Their brandname Natterjack refers to one of Flook’s songs, making it an outright ode to their heroes. Now they’re back with a bunch of new songs written by Mike himself (they invented a genre they call ‘Irish influenced accidental world music’) ánd of course a few traditional Irish songs.
