Twarres is a folk/pop band from Wergea, the Netherlands who perform songs in both English and their native Frisian Language. Their songs are primarily lush, harmonic vocal pop with a focus on acoustic instrumentation such as pianos and violins.
The band was originally founded in 1998.
Original main band members:
- Johan van der Veen (1981) - vocals
- Mirjam Timmer (1982) - vocals and guitar
In December 2003, Johan left the music business. Mirjam decided to start a career as a solo singer as MIR.
In 2007 Johan and Mirjam wanted to reunite, but Johan got a muscle disease so he wasn't able to perform. He was temporarily replaced by Auke Busman on vocals and guitar).
In 2009 Mirjam found her final new singing partner: Joost Bloemendal with help from radio DJ Ruud de Wild.
In 2011, Joost left and from now on Mirjam will be the only singer of Twarres.
