A "new" site about a "new" band, but with a familiar sound. As you probably may or may not have noticed; the Jolly Beggars have changed. Hans & Annelot left the band to pursue other interests, and Wouter plays along whenever his busy work schedule permits him to. At the base we still have Dirk & Freek, with Dirk sr. (soundman) to support them. This ensemble is often combined with two or more members from the Lowland Paddies. Who you get may be a surprise, but what you get isn't; an evening filled with Irish traditional music, some new, some old. We hope to see you soon at one of our many gigs!!
