NoorderZondag at Het Dok: cult hero Meindert Talma
Picturesque Noordhorn is home to a man who epitomises northern level-headedness like no other. Since 1997, cult phenomenon Meindert Talma has released 14 records, published four novels, a collection of poetry and a volume of interviews. He performs both solo and with various musical ensembles and bands throughout the Netherlands and Belgium. Of course you could also catch him performing in one of the Noorderzon shipping containers over the years. In late 2017, he published the second part of Nederlands Onbekendste Popster (The Netherlands’ most little-known pop star), his memoirs in novels with accompanying soundtrack, entitled Je denkt dat het komt (You think it’s coming), to great critical acclaim in the Dutch press. He is no stranger to self-deprecation, bringing grins to audience faces. A wonderful way to conclude your Noorderzon Sunday, NoorderZondag.

“Endlessly fascinating and utterly one of a kind.”
