Dublin here I come!

Hi guys,
I am happy to tell you that I will take my two beautiful daughters to Dublin at the end of this month!
We are planning to busk but I am not sure how to take a guitar in the plane, I hear many bad stories about flying with a guitar. I have to think about it, but I will find a way out.
For sure I will play right here:
Sunday February 25th I will play at the Appollo sessions in The Bleeding Horse/Bleeding Horse, Camden Street, Dublin 2 / 

Monday 26th at the : International Bar in DUBLIN/ Ireland

At daytime you can find me as a busker somehow, somewhere in Dublin...

And other great news: Mario and I will record another CD! I have written so many new songs last year, so we decided that we will record our music in April.

So we will not perform so much these month, but if you wanna know where we play, take a look at my website www.annettevogel.nl www.annettevogel.nl

If I got more news about my trip to Dublin, I will let you know as soon as possible!
See you! X

My life in 2017

Hi folks,
Here I am again and I wish you a happy new year!

Last year was for me a very busy year. I have been playing a lot, mostly together with Mario.
In Summer 2015 me and the father of our daughters decided to break up our relationship after we've been together more then 20 years.A divorce is always drastic, even if we have decided this together. It brought me a lot of pain and sometimes I still find it difficult to be on my own again.
It helped me to write some songs about this divorcion, like  BLUE RAIN and CHANGED

In January 2017 I started a new relationship. Of course I had known Mario much longer, but it took me a year to realize that I had fallen in love with him as much as he was in love with me.

A difficult aspect of my life is that I  suffer from an anxiety disorder and so I got sometimes panic attacks. I really thought that I was recovered from this kind of emotions, but since I started a new love affair it's sometimes really hard to handle myself. Anyways, when I play a lot of music then everything seems to be allright. Music makes me feel alive!

Last summer I organized SchierSong Festival and I already started to programme a new Festival for this year!

Last year I played almost every weekend and still we are doing well.
A new event is that my youngest daughter  ANNIKA started to like singing again! So we do some Adele and Ed Sheeran covers together and sometimes she performes with me.

Also new is that I will start a course at the Conservatorium of Amsterdam. I will learn again a lot about teaching music. I used to study music in Groningen, but this is a very long time ago, so I am happy that I have been admitted after my audition.

The best thing what happened to me last year is that I started to busk again! This was very good for my self confidence! I sort of found back an old identity of mine. Just sitting in the streets and singing. Meeting all kind of people.

We did a whole lot of Performancestraat everywhere in the Bergerlands, one of Them you van watch here
As you maybe know I have been living in Groningen for half of my life. It's always a great pleasure to go back there and have some musical perfomances. That's what I did in the last week of 2017.
We played in the Irish Pub and the Kroeg van Klaas and had a really nice time with the locals!

Irish Pub (Kattendiep) Groningen
Last but not least, I still organize SWAN, songwriters AmsterdamNoord, ( SWAN ) and so, if you are interested to play there, send me an email! 


I almost forgot one thing, I have been interviewd by this Dutch radio man, but it's not really about music, its about life... a vision on life, a philosophy. I could not watch it myself, that's really too much for me, and the interview is way to long, but still, you can find it right here if you are curious. Anne Vogy

So for the new year, I wish everybody as much as happiness as possible, even if times are hard.
Love and Hugs,
Annette live at Café langereis

Me and my singing daughter (14)

My daughter is 14 years old and when she was a very little girl she loved singing. Then, suddenly she didn't want to sing anymore since she was 10 years old. Since this summer, somehow, she decided to sing a song which I wrote and she performed this song. A lot of people really liked what she was doing and now she has the courage again! So I asked her she would sing songs of Adele and Ed Sheeran, because I know she likes that kind of music. We just have fun together but I am sure she is gonna perfom for audience very soon, she just needs to be encouraged.

Christmas CD release Radio Universe

Hi folks,

Days get shorter and the end of the year is almost there...

In March I was asked to write a song for a Christmas CD and so I did. You can listen to the song very soon, it's recorded at Radio Universe and I will make a clip of it.

I am very busy with my work as a teacher, but also with my work as a musician.
I played at several places, but most important: I am rehearsing some covers of Ed Sheeran and Adele because my 14 years old daughter is a very good singer and she likes to sing these kind of songs.
She performed the songs for the very first time last weekend! So I am learning a lot :)

Also I did some nice gigs in Amsterdam; I told the audience about my musical life, so I sang "Suzanne" of Leonard Cohen and some Simon and Garfunkel stuff. Because my parents listened to that kind of music. I also sang many songs of myself. Anyway, still on the road and never stop playing :)) I like to share and hope you like what i am doing. Thanks so much for your supporting.
