Mr. Folxlide is the perfect mix between balfolk and American blues.But why did Mikulas Bryan (ba.fnu) started a solo balfolk project on a Cigar Box Guitar? Because everyone can understand the blues, no matter where they come from. After all, folk dance music is also about love and life. By combining the raw sound of old blues, balfolk, French song and country, Mikulas offers music with deep and bewitching atmospheres.
Mr. Folxlide is an old love story for us at Folk Addikt. We have always loved his sensual and catchy style, and his album 1-4-5 is a reference for many of us. He is one of the reasons (but not the only one) why we like to go dancing in Eastern Europe (yes, because he is Czech!). Do we need to tell you that a mazurka with blues inspiration is quite an experience ?

Acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, synthesizer, drum programming
Geronimo is Jeroen Geerinck's solo project (Snaarmaarwaar, Hot Griselda, Novar). Musician and producer for many years, he has become impossible to miss in the Belgian music scene. His bold playing and energy are recognizable within his bands. More than a musician, Jeroen produces many folk albums and is constantly committed to making this music fresh and contemporary.
What we love about Géronimo at Folk Addikt is the energy that Jeroen transmits to the dancers. At each concert, he sets the room on fire and the dancers dance as if trying to put out the flames with their feet. He is an exceptional musician who has his heart on his sleeve, when he does not have it on the strings of his guitar!
Workshop - Blues Balfolk Fusion
For the first time, Folk Addikt invites you to join a dance workshop before Le Petit Bal. You spice up your scottisch with forro movements, use tango in your mazurkas, do salsa in your polkas,... But have you ever tried with the blues? In this Blues Balfolk Fusion dance workshop, Mikulas (Mr. Folxlide) shares his advice and guides us to learn how to dance folk ball with a blues style. A great opportunity to broaden your horizons and learn some blues moves and techniques before Mr. Folxlide's ball and renew your dance style. This workshop is not included in Le Petit Bal, you must register separately.
