Linde Nijland & Bert Ridderbos
Linde was described "best folk singer of the Netherlands" (Heaven). For many years she has been performing and recording with multi-instrumentalist Bert Ridderbos ('seemingly a one man orchestra' fRoots) on guitars, cittern, accordion, banjo and dobro. Together they tour all over Europe. In 2008 Linde and Bert made a musical friendship journey, over land to Bhutan (through Serbia, Iran, India) after which they released a documentary which shows them performing together with traditional local musicians and giving concerts in several Asian countries. More recently they released Linde's brand new album 'Ten Years' which was nominated for the esteemed German award 'Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik'.
Sandy Denny Project
In the past Linde recorded a sincere tribute album to her favorite singer, the legendary Sandy Denny. In 2009 she was invited by Joe Boyd (prod. Sandy Denny, Nick Drake, Pink Floyd) to perform at a one off Fairport Convention reunion concert at the Barbican in London (with i.e. Richard Thompson, Iain Matthews). She also was interviewed for the Radio2 BBC documentary about Sandy Denny by Bob Harris. Later Linde guested with Fairport Convention in their current line-up.
“Linde Nijland has given Sandy Denny’s music the respect it deserves, and made a lovely and fresh record that shows off her beautiful voice as well as her good taste”. Joe Boyd
“I got intrigued about the different versions of this song (Who knows where the time goes). It’s been covered so many times, by so many diverse people, from Rufus Wainwright to Judy Collins, but I think my favourite comes from the artist Linde Nijland” Tom Robinson (BBC6)
Linde started performing and recording at a young age with harmony singing duo Ygdrassil. They performed at big festivals like Noorderslag, Lowlands, Folkwoods and Oerol. Ygdrassil recorded 5 albums and one DVD and are still loved for their unrivalled harmony singing.
