Ineke Vandoorn - piano and vocals Marc van Vugt - guitar

Dutch Grammy winners jazz singer Ineke Vandoorn and guitarist Marc van Vugt return to Canada in the spring of 2018 and will be making their Yardbird Suite debut. Inspired by the French Provence countryside, they wrote new songs about friends, friendships and their loved ones. Vandoorn and van Vugt have taken duo playing to a different level. Seamlessly and effortlessly they are switching roles and at times you are wondering who is doing what. Never losing their sense of lyricism and harmony, they are free as a bird playing their songs.

The duo explores the boundaries of both improvisation and lyrical songs, creating their own world with their funky arrangements and modern music full of rich harmonies and haunting melodies. Vandoorn's exceptional and warm vocals are supported by solos full of detours by guitarist Marc van Vugt. Although there are obviously echoes of different styles like jazz, the virtuoso Brazilian choro and the fairytale-like (pop) music of Scandinavia, their music is unmistakably Vandoorn/Van Vugt.

During this tour Ineke Vandoorn will also present the English version of her highly acclaimed book on singing 'Singing From the Inside Out'. The book, labeled as the 'Lonely Planet Guide' for jazz and pop singers.
