It’s not always fun in the 16th century, but when Vive les Gueux stirs the drums, the sun creeps out from behind her cloud deck and the party starts. Of course, these Alkmaar Watergeuzen do not shy away from the historical songs, but also the everyday things of life and the misadventures of poor scumbags are caught in music and singing.
And if you want to know about the 80-year war, there’s always a master storyteller nearby who treats you to a juicy story with historical foundation.
So when you hear them, look them up. Before you know it, they’ll move on and your friends will say to you, “You should have been there!”
