Without any doubt Bert Dockx is one of the most unique, devoted songwriters and musicians in years. As key figure of the band Flying Horseman, one third of the transcendent Dans Dans and all by himself with the Dutch acoustic solo project Strand, he was able to gather a series of impressive albums and live performances in no time. In 2015 he premiered with Covers By Bert Dockx, a solo tribute, in Dockx’s signature style, to artists who inspired him throughout the years. In the summer of that same year he also recieved the award for culture from the University of Leuven, a bi-anual price awarded to a grand and innovating Belgian artist.
With his ominous performance, he always knows how to grab an audience by the throat. Expect an evening with thrilling versions of his own work (Flying Horseman & Strand) and some beautifull covers (Bob Dylan, Joy Division, Townes Van Zandt, Ornette Coleman, John Fahey, Fleetwood Mac, …) as well.
