Le Forum souhaite la Bienvenue a Johan Jansen de Hollande
(pour certains d'entre nous il n'est pas inconnu)
Nice to have you here among us Johan
feel free to write us in english
voici ce qu'il m'a écrit :
My name is Johan Jansen.
I've been playing pedalsteelguitar for 30 years now.
I play in three bands, Cash On Delivery, The Secret Combination and the Lowlanders.
Besides that, I teach for a living and do a lot of studiowork.
I organized two big festivals in Pays-Bas, Steeldays 2000 and Steeldays 2002.
Because of the recession we could not finance a festival as big is that anymore.
So I organised steeldays 2008 and 2009, as teaching -seminars.
Because I have some Belgian students, I learned that the Steel guitar in the French speaking part of Europe is very popular.
I don't speak French, and with a dictionnairy I can find out what people talk about.
I hope a lot of you are able to converse in English, German or Dutch too. You can find out a lot about me on my website and I hope to meet some of you in Charlieu 2009.
Thanks a lot and best regards, Johan Jansen
