Drunken Dolly is a happy rocking Celtic folk-punk party music from Rotterdam!
I met Drunken Dolly in a club near the city where I live. They were on a small tour in the Netherlands. I heard from a friend that they were some young talented punk musicians, and they were different in style. Meaning banjo and mandolin and lots of beer.
As I grew up in the 80s punk was the ultimate way to express ourselves against the society with our clothes and protest. But Punk is also a lot of fun music.
That evening when they all were standing outside talking and joking with each other with their rented tour fan. I remembered what I had missed being a jazz vocalist. I always worked with my father and professional musicians for more than twelve years. It never occurred to me that during that time in my life I have no friends who played jazz…
One year later they played again but then on a bigger stage. I decided to come to the concert with my camera. I wanted to do something to experiment with something new as a photographer.
We had a lot of fun making this series.
