Janssens, Liesbeth; Cautaers, Joren; Mertens, Lode; WÖR

Following the steps of the past carillonneurs (bell tower musicians), WÖR take original melodies from the 18th century and remix them into their own new arrangements. With past and present instruments (bagpipes, accordion, violin, saxophone and guitar) they take the audience on a nostalgic trip through history, punctuated with modern-day influences. “A young band reinterpreting old manuscript in a refreshing and new way.” (BBC Radio 2) “They’re all astonishing musicians.” (Huffington Post) “They play classical, they call it folk and the result is rock’n’roll stomping music.” (Radio 1 Belgium)
