  Beppie Kraft
by ger4444

Who are they? André Rieu is nowadays world wide famous with his Strausorchestra, that just knows how to transform classic masterpieces into cheesy popular music. Allthough nowadays famous he used to play in town at the squre in his so called "Hieringe biete" concert. That was before he got international fame. In recent years he turned the Vrijthof into a grand concert performing for thousants of people for international television. Beppie Kraft didnt get that famous. She is a locally well loved artist who sings only in dialect, she covers and makes her own music. Some of them especially for carnival. Her dad was the locally famous accordion-player Sjeng Craft, who used to play in the concerts that were given by artists who worked together with Johny Hoes. He also plays accordion on a top 10 hit that in 1994 hit the Dutch Charts (Sjeng on de Geng) As for Andre Rieu, see this genius: f.e. at http://www.npo.nl/andre-rieu-welcome-to-my-world/10-04-2015/AT_2031393
