Biography

Please refer to Ed Kooyman & Herman Van Haeren.

On advise of Wannes van de Velde, Ed Kooyman started to write Antwerp lyrics to the countrymusic that he and Herman Van Haeren had grown up with.
This orginal combination not only appealed to an Antwerp public since Ed toured Flanders and part of Holland on his own, with his 5-string-banjo, concertina, autoharp and mondharmonika.

In 1973 he asked Herman to cooperate on his first album. This cooperation became more and more intense, and since then they always perform together.
They have released 9 albums up to now, the last 4 on CD.
Over the years they have been honoured with several awards, such as the Radio 2 “Joske”, the “Bolleke van de maand” of the De Koninck brewery and the honourable membership of the Order of Semini.

They have exported the Antwerp chanson the farthest over the border when the represented this city of ‘Sinjoren’ on the International Radiofestival of Shangai and in September 1999 they performed something similar in Babylon, Irak.

On the stage they are accompanied by Frank Bierque(contrabas), which ensures excellent (and contagious) music at their original texts.
