About Het Volk
We are Het Volk, a band with our roots in many genres such as Celtic folk, bluegrass and blues. We make music known as progressive Americana. We write music you can enjoy listening to whilst drinking a glass of good whiskey, a proper beer or a strong cup of coffee.
Imagine a sunny afternoon. Now imagine how relaxed you'd feel that afternoon. Now imagine going to a pub after you've spent your afternoon like this and imagine walking into a band called Het Volk. Your ears focus on how the beautiful soft chords, harmonies and vocals drift towards a more energetic way of storytelling. You hear the energetic banging of the guitar, beautiful violin harmonies echoing through the room, piercing vocals that have a great a story to tell and a bombastic upright bass to keep it all together. You slowly feel that your feet are starting to move, and after a couple of pints you cannot help but do little dances to the progressive Americana music.
