Marlene Bakker is a striking appearance in the Lower Saxon American singing circuit. Her beautiful voice and beautifully crafted songs are striking and unique in the Dutch music scene.

Marlene's debut album "RAIF" has since its introduction been widely acclaimed and received several five-star reviews.  "as far as I'm concerned the best album of 2018," says NPO Radio 1 DJ and Dutch speaking Frits Spits who almost doesn't understand the dialect Marleon sings in. The musicians who helped record this album will partially also be heard during the concert: Nicky Hustinx (drums), Arjen de Bock (keys), Bernard Gepken (guitar) and Reyer Zwart (bass)

Over here in Dedemsvaart we quite well understand the beautiful Groningen-Low saxon Marlene sings in. But even if you don't follow, you will be touched by the beautiful atmosphere and music. Full of desire, hope, pride, sadness and romance. Immerse yourself in a unique music experience in which Marlene sings about the magic of the northern provinces that is so recognizable to us all. The music sort of seamlessly connects with today's indie pop.

"This is incredibly beautiful ..!" (Daniël Lohues)

"Check this! Wonderful how she expresses it in Groningen!" (Nynke Laverman)
