About Het Volk


Het Volk is a band with its roots in many genres such as Celtic folk, bluegrass and blues. They make music known as progressive Americana - music you can enjoy listening to while drinking a glass of good whiskey, a proper beer or a strong cup of coffee.

Picture a sunny afternoon; imagine how relaxed you'd feel that afternoon. Now visualise 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.

After their first singles If I and Breathe, they released their debut album Childish Old Souls on December 16 2022
