There is music in the ST5 fishing vessel from Zoutkamp
The S10 went to the Eurovision Song Contest and took 11th place in Turin. From Zoutkamp, the ST5 will be taking to the water this summer and that’s not half the S10. The ST5 is a 1935 fishing vessel that was rescued from destruction by Jeroen and Hanneke Hinteman.
The ship is used for day trips over a valley. In the Musical Intercession by Daniel Lohos, the ship will be used as a sailing stage for the second year. This is great for artists from Groningen, because they can perform their songs on board. Edwin Jongedijk (June 11), Alex Vissering (June 18), Harry Niehof (July 2,), Ylvalie Dik and Chiron Schut (July 8) will sail aboard the Lauwersmeer.
Bertolf Lintink, Rick Trivers and Tangeren signed the contract later this summer. This is great for musicians and music lovers. And how cool it would be – if only the sticker – if the S10 (half speed forward) also appeared on the surface of the ST5.
And for the few who hate music, it’s beautiful, too. He thinks, “Just let them get out into the water with that noise.” Well, noise… And besides, the sound above the water is transmitted far †
