FESTIVAL VENUE - HET LEIDSE VOLKSHUIS 

The prominent and well maintained community arts building Het Leidse Volkshuis will be our main festival venue. Creative energy is all around in this place, housing a monumental theatre and function rooms named .. het Atelier, etc. The venue is located along a typical Dutch canal. 

 

All lessons, workshops and specials will be taking place here, except for the How-to-survive-a-jam-session crash course, which will be held before and on the site of the jam session (see below). 

 

The theatre is located in the heart of the building and will host the Expo, the festival desk, and the (lunch) cafe, with Open Mic sessions taking place on the stage.

CONCERT VENUE 1 - AALMARKTZAAL 

The concert by Deborah Henson-Conant and special guest Olga Shishkina will take place in the Aalmarktzaal, a national monument at 100 meter walking distance, across the canal from Het Leidse Volkshuis. A beautiful hall with a modern appeal. Completely equipped to enable the American First Lady of Electric Harp and the talented Russian player of the unique and unexpectedly developed Finnish electric Kantele to present their music to us in an unforgettable concert.

JAM SESSION VENUE - DE BRANDERIJ 

A great old coffee roasting house, again at walking distance. The perfect spot for an easy dinner, the How-to-survive-a-jam-session crash course, and a burning hot jam session! 

 

Address: Middelweg 7-9, 2312 KE Leiden 

 

 

CONCERT VENUE 2 - SCHELTEMA 

For the concert with Maeve Gilchrist and Rossitza Milevska (opened by the Harpbreakers wth Deborah Henson-Conant) we will enjoy a 500 meter Sunday afternoon walk to the next canal, where we will find Scheltema Leiden. This old textile factory has become a great present-day arts facility. The urban-industrial feel will absolutely suit Maeve's grassroots-yet-exquisite singer songwriting as well as Rossitza's spontaneous and funky-edged jazz harp performance.
