Frankrijk voor de thuisblijvers

Ah, la France! Aimé et detesté. On the one hand there’s l’amour, Culture with a capital C and seven-course meals washed down with calvados. On the other: reflective vests, terrorist attacks and pitch-black predictions by Houellebecq. For all those who aren’t visiting France this summer, here’s your chance to cuddle up to the country anyway: comedian Patrick Nederkoorn [1983] and pianist/chansonnier Guido van de Meent are singing Aznavour, Brel and Piaff, translated into Dutch. And they tell stories about unknown singers, failed holiday romances and a blackened cathedral. Patrick, a theology student and town councillor in a previous life, is a graduate from the Koningstheateracademie in ’s-Hertogenbosch and won the 2019 Annie M.G. Schmidt Prize. Guido won the 2008 Concours de la Chanson.
