Just like five years ago, Jan Akkerman celebrates his birthday at Cultuurpodium Boerderij. During this festive evening, Jan will be assisted by his regular band, singer Phil Bee and special guest(s).
The set list will consist of songs by Johnny & The Cellar Rockers, The Hunters, Brainbox, Focus and pieces from his solo repertoire. Jan Akkerman (1946) is one of the most respected guitarists in the Netherlands. In addition to his role in internationally acclaimed groups such as Brainbox and Focus, he has collaborated with a variety of musicians such as BB King, Charlie Byrd, Cozy Powell, Claus Ogerman and Ice-T. He released more than a dozen solo albums, on which he combined elements from rock, jazz, blues and dance in his own way. Akkerman has been touring the world for years. He has played several times at the Montreux Jazz Festival and North Sea Jazz, has toured numerous theaters and other venues in Europe and America, and has performed live in Russia, Syria, Australia and Japan, among others. In 2005 the guitarist received a Golden Harp for his entire oeuvre. Jan Akkerman shows are always different: fresh, energetic and never predictable. As an authentic improviser he shows what he is capable of and shares his passion for the guitar with the members of his backing band.
