Tangarine & Friends: folk/ roots/ bluegrass from the Netherlands

Thanks to Floris de Vries, banjo-player in Tangarine & Friends (NL), for news of the band - 'seven young musicians with a big heart for folk and bluegrass music', who play their own folk songs with traditional bluegrass instruments, and share in their songs their vision on politics, religion, and life.

Tangarine & Friends started out with the brothers Arnout and Sander Brinks who started writing songs at an early age, influenced by Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, and the Beatles. After a few years of playing in a changing combination of band members, their first album, Between the lines, was released in January 2008. Their second album was released not long after that, in October 2008, with the name Fields of poetry. Later more people joined the band and Tangarine became Tangarine & Friends.

Last month they released a new single, 'Fields of poetry', with a very fancy videoclip on YouTube. Last August the band recorded their third album, which is scheduled for release in January 2010.
