My name is Antoinette Wolters. I'm living in the Netherlands together with my hubby and 4 kids.
I love music. I started making music when I was 6 years old. I started playing Hammond organ and recorder at that age. I moved on to playing piccolo and flute when I was 7 years old. I decided to take some workshops playing djembé at the age of 28.
My mother introduced me to playing the diatonic accordion. I took lessons for 2 years and went to workshops to learn all kinds of techniques on the diatonic accordion after that. I've been playing the diatonic accordion for 14 years now and still love it. My favorite genre of music on the diatonic accordion is melancholic music.
Nowadays I play in 2 bands.
GallimauFries consists of 3 members. Freek Span plays guitar, banjo and is lead vocal. Ab Ebelties is in charge of percussion. I play flute, whistle, ukulele and diatonic accordion and I sing in that band. We play music we love from all over the world.
Sacht consists of 5 female members. We all play diatonic accordion. Some members also play flute, violin and clarinet. Sacht plays different kinds of music with a preference to French Ball Folk music.
