The Assassenachs is a folk trio consisting of two Scotsmen and one Dutchman, based in the north of The Netherlands. Since 1998 they have been playing in pubs, clubs and festivals throughout Europe with their mixture of Scottish/Irish folk music and self-written repertoire. This blend of Celtic folk and contemporary song writing has pleased all ages of audiences for almost two decades. In every live show, the emphasis is on passion and dynamite. Traditional folk songs are given a new lease of life but retain their authenticity and integrity.
On this website you can read about the different members of The Assassenachs, listen to their music and watch videos of live performances.
While listening and watching, you will notice different formations. As a trio, The Assassenachs often ask guest musicians to play along with them, depending on the wishes and budget of the client. These guest musicians live in different parts of Europe, so the location of the performance also influences the availability. One of the guests, piano-accordion player Erik de Jong, recently became a full member. That’s why you also find him under ‘members’ and in most videos and photos on the website.
It is also possible for The Assassenachs to perform as a duo.
So, The Assassenachs are a versatile and customizable music act, suitable for all kinds of locations and events all over Europe (most gigs are in Benelux, Scandinavia, Germany and Great Britain).
