Saskia Laroo & Band
Eclectic Virtuoso, Performing Her Own Original Music Worldwide
Celebrating 45 years of Live Performances & 30 years of Laroo Records
Dear Music Friends,
We're in Splendid Spring and we hope you're feeling it too! We sure are, working very hard behind the scenes on our new songs, preparing our music projects and tours, while also performing.
April was very busy. We hopped over the ocean for gigs with our bands in the US (including a performance at the McLean Center) and the Netherlands (performing with Hans Dulfer for Royal Jazz). Now we're back in the US, having already played at the Fun Fest in Turners Falls, MA. This weekend, we travel to Canada, again with the ASE. In between we have gigs with Duo Laroo/Byrd in Massachussettes, US.
Heading back to the Netherlands, we look forward to our 3-day artist-in-residence at Festival Jazz Aan De Sjtasie in Swalmen, a recording performance at New Space Studio in Den Haag, concerts at Live Aan de Waal in Nijmegen, and more! See below for some of our upcoming shows, more info about our bands, and throwbacks.
