Grown out of a Dutch Performing Arts commissioned research survey, Going Dutch is a new JPN-Dutch Performing Arts joint initiative to create opportunities for audiences in the UK and Republic of Ireland to hear a wider range of Dutch artists.
In order to identify and assess artists that would be appropriate for promotion by JPN members, it was seen as essential that there should be opportunities for promoters to hear the musicians playing live to audiences, in The Netherlands or the UK and RoI, with other digital opportunities used to complement this experience.
A programme of invitations for JPN members (including broadcasters and journalists as well as promoters) to festivals and events in The Netherlands as well as Going Dutch programmes in the UK have taken place and will continue as the collaboration grows stronger. See below for upcoming UK and RoI tour dates.
Brilliant trio with genius viola-ist Oene van Geel, tabla maestro Niti Ranjan Biswas and guitarist Mark Tuinstra – a fierce mix of cultures….” fireworks, u-turns and cinematic tearjerkers”!
Availability early April 2018 and then tbc – just enquire!
Four of the most eccentric improvisers in the Dutch music scene. Anton Goudsmit (guitar), Oene van Geel, (viola), Jeroen van Vliet (piano) & Mete Erker (saxophones).
“Three of them have won the prestigious jazz music award VPRO Boy Edgar Prize. All of them are constantly creating highly original music in diverse national and international projects.”
Availability varied, some in May but mainly onwards from June 2018 – just enquire!
DOMINIC J MARSHALL TRIO
with Dominic (piano – yes, a British lad but a Dutch resident now!) + Jamie Peet (drums) & Glen Gaddum (bass). “Rising star pianist Dominic J Marshall has produced four impressive albums to date, his latest featuring his molten blend of hard hitting melodic jazz underpinned with slugged hip hop grooves and daring dynamics.”
Available for the UK and Ireland in March 2018
ERIC VLOEIMANS’ OLIVER’S CINEMA
A huge hit with promoters at the JPN annual conference in June 2017: “With Oliver’s Cinema, trumpet star Vloeimans finds himself in a chamber-ish space, working intimate, elegant, and refined music into shape with cellist Jorg Brinkmann and accordionist Tuur Florizoone. Together, these three float, fly, dance, soothe, and seduce.”
Best availability – second half of May 2018 and second half of September 2018 (or just enquire!)
TIN MEN AND THE TELEPHONE
The piano trio that brought the smartphone into jazz – rave reviews from Ronnie Scott’s this summer – coming to the UK in 2018 and 2019 to work on their new digital project
Available for Going Dutch various times in 2018 including early April – just enquire (subject to funding arrangements due to current funding for development project)
The brilliant new piano star – improviser and composer – witness her breathtaking Going Dutch gigs in Newcastle, Glasgow and Manchester in 2017 – in demand across Europe and available solo, duo (with drummer Onno Govaert) and her own storming Octet.
Available early April 2018 and then enquire for all times through the year
Another trio that has blown JPN members away on visits to the Netherlands (and rare gigs here such as London Jazz Festival). “The renowned cellist Ernst Reisejer, pianist Harmen Fraanje and Senegalese singer-percussionist Mola Sylla are able to create their own language on stage like no one else – best described as the perfect amalgam of jazz, African songs and classical music.”
Enquire for availabilities throughout 2018

Drummer Lijbaart (known for his work with Yuri Honing amongst others) with his new trio featuring Sanne Rambags (vocals) and Bram Stadhouders (guitar and electronics)

ICP’s (and available Jelly’s) alto saxophonist and clarinettist, with his own long-standing group of veteran Dutch improvisers: Harmen Fraanje – piano; Clemens van der Feen – double bass; and Michael Vatcher – drums.
