about The sons ...

The Sons of Navarone are an established and award winning Belgian Bluegrass Band. They have performed at Art Centers, festivals and clubs all over Europe, and were voted Best European Bluegrass Band 2012 at La Roche and received the Audience Popularity Award in 2016 at EWOB in Voorthuizen. They deliver a fully professional show with traditional and contemporary music combined with their very special humor. You don’t need to know much about the music to be very well entertained.

Bluegrass music has developed from its roots in the USA into being recognized as a world music and Belgium has made an impact in this world with the recent film “The Broken Circle Breakdown” which has Bluegrass music at the heart of its story.  It has gathered praise from far and wide and is currently under consideration for nomination to the Academy Awards as the best foreign film. Songs from the film are featured in the repertoire of the Sons who appeared (briefly!) as background musicians in the film.

The “Sons” are musicians who have played in other musical genres as well as Bluegrass, from Folk to Classical, from Barbershop to Irish but they all have a love for Bluegrass music and have been playing it for many years; They are Guido Bos, vocals and contrabass, Thierry Schoysman, vocals and mandolin, Yves Aerts, vocals and guitar …all Belgian.. and Paul van Vlodrop from The Netherlands on vocals and banjo.
