Margriet Sjoerdsma / ODELION ft. Jeroen van Vliet & Vera van der Bie
In recent years, Margriet Sjoerdsma conquered the Netherlands with A Tribute to Eva Cassidy. This tour brought the singer a.o. to the North Sea Jazz Festival and a packed Concertgebouw, delivered her rave reviews and recently got her the prestigious English Oeuvre Prize for Small Art and Cabaret, which was awarded in the form of a Bronze Lion in the Schillertheater this year. Her new songs were brought into life in Odelien, a cottage in Norway where she spent three months on her own. A place in an overwhelming landscape, where nature is still lord and master and the silence deafening. There, Margriet could feel what it was like to be far away from the issues of everyday life, the stress, bustle and chaos of modern life. It was the ideal backdrop for Margriet to write about timeless themes such as loneliness, love, detachment and wonder. She is accompanied by master pianist Jeroen van Vliet and violin virtuoso Vera van der Bie.
