Broeder Dieleman

“The Flemish Spinvis”
Brother Dieleman, in hidnormal life known as Tonnie, writes folksongs about the world around him. With his songs, which are more stories than songs, he describes the birds, the landscape and his family in the Flemish dialect. The songs sound familiar and with its combination of subjects and its own dialect, the comparison to Spinvis, a Dutch singer, can easily be made. His beautiful, sober lyrics and unmatched melodies create the perfect atmosphere for the last night on Podium Plataan.
