Just like last year, on three Saturday nights after the regular performances the Holland Festival is throwing a party in the SkyLounge of the DoubleTree Hotel. In a relaxed atmosphere, artists, the Festival audience and other visitors can enjoy musical performances by Festival artists who show another side of their talents than in the regular programme. The bar remains open during the performances, and this will be Festival hangout until the wee hours of the morning. Entrance is free.

This Saturday’s Late Night concert is being given by Claron McFadden, the vocalist in Sunken Garden by Michel van der Aa. McFadden sings jazz standards by Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Chick Corea and Antônio Carlos Jobim, accompanied by Dimitar Bodurov on piano and Fay Lovsky on guitar, theremin and singing saw. Together, they pay tribute to the ‘nighthawks’ of yore and turn the SkyLounge into a sultry nightclub where time seems to stand still.
