TEUN VERBRUGGEN & DIRK SERRIES Live In Concert (De Loods, Stramproy/Netherlands) Saturday July 10th, 8pm.

About 7 years ago, drummer Teun Verbruggen and guitarist Dirk Serries released a much-appreciated duo debut album under the title ‘Art Of Cosmic Musings’. This album, together with the creation of YODOK III (with Tomas Järmy and Kristoffer Lo), was the foundation for Dirk Serries’ adventure in free improvisation. Now 7 years later, Teun and Dirk are once again joining forces for an exclusive open air concert, organized by Jazzblazzt in collaboration with A New Wave Of Jazz. A new studio album will be recorded later this year.  The event is a private one but you can reserve your seat by emailing : Due to the covid19 the ‘tickets’ are limited so get in touch to make your reservation. All info about the address you’ll get when reservering your seat.
