harp, violin, viola d’amore
With duo Plaisir d'amour Anouk teams up with Jos Koning, the energetic patriarch of Dutch folk and rock violinists with more than 50 LPs and CDs to his name.
Both performers share a passion for folk music. Together, Jos and Anouk present an incisive program, with music that flows from fairylike to experimental. In their concerts they will take you to the Irish moors, the misty Scottish highland, the rocks of Brittany and the endless Swedish forests. Integral part of their performance is the always entertaining presentation of the program by Jos Koning.

“Isiltir shows how harp music can be exciting and even jazzy. They dive deep into the folk legends of Scotland” (Gelderlander 16 december 2014)
Isiltir (Irish for ‘low lands’) is a harp duo that Anouk started with fellow harpist and Celtic music lover Nanja Bakker. They play beautiful ancient and new Celtic music in contemporary arrangements complemented by myths and legends. Anouk and Nanja like to see themselves as modern bards!
Their music is suited to an intimate concert, a whisky tasting, high-tea or as a special intermezzo during a party or reception.
