Trio Les Amis - mandolin, guitar & accordion

Trio Les Amis is a collaboration of two duos, Follie à deux and Duo Giuliani. 

This collaboration gives a lot of possibilities. Delicate mandolin and guitar music, Italian folk music, choros and tangos from South America, with a wink at Django Reinhardt and his Hot Club de France.

Ron Leendertse (1962) studied at the Conservatory of Arnhem and Tilburg.
For a couple of years he lived in Spain where he
focused on the style characteristics of Spanish composers and of the Spanish folk music.
As a teacher he works at several music schools in Holland and Belgium.

Accordionplayer Monty van Belzen (1959) developed himself as allround musician. Besides the fact that he is the musical partner of Marina Eckhardt, he plays with several choirs. With these choirs he recorded several CDs and made concerttrips to the United States, Russia and Australia. Among the highlights in his carreer are the collaboration with Gregor Bak and his choir of Ural Cossacks and performances with the Dutch “Zeeuws Symphonic Orchestra”. As a solomusician he is very active. As a member of JP & The Seeger Session Band he performs also abroad.
