David Celia (Canada) and Marla (Germany, real name Marlene Winkler) met for the first time at a festival. There was a spark, musically as well as personally. They each already had their own career: Marla on cello at first, and later in musicals and opera; David as guitarist and producer. Things came together when the two went on tour and Marla's first solo-album was produced by David. A joint album wouldn't take them long. Daydreamers is full of dreamy folkpop with lyrics about love and longing.

When hearing Ags Connolly's music it reminds you of Texas and a little of the music-mix from the border between Texas and Mexico of The Hacienda Brothers for example, or of an illegitimate grandchild by Hank Williams or George Jones. By his appearance you might think he's a brother of Otis Gibbs. But you'd be well mistaken, for Ags comes from Oxfordshire in the South-East of England and thus grew up near the river Thames and not the Guadelupe river, although his musical soul is definitely rooted in that region. 
On his last album Wrong Again he honours the famous saying: "Country music is three chords and the truth". He's a wholesaler in Sad Songs with a voice absolutely dripping with melancholy typical of John Morland for instance. English Americana radio icon Bob Harris described his last album as “modern day traditionalism of the very, very best kind”. But Ags has made a lot of friends in the US too, seeing as members of The Mavericks and musicians who would normally only be allowed to play with Rodney Crowell and Emmylou Harris, are playing on his last album. Tom Russel also gave him his great appreciation by describing him as: "Killer... Ags has that old Lefty Frizzell feel in his voice".

Every Monday, we present concerts with singer-songwriters, acoustic bands, rootsy performers and other gems from the music world. All this as part of a series called 'De Maandag van Van Meurs' (Van Meurs' Monday).
