Drunken Sailor – Balve Cage

“Drunken Sailor” is a sea shanty, also known as “What Shall We Do with a/the Drunken Sailor”.

The shanty was sung to accompany certain work tasks aboard sailing ships, especially those that required a bright walking pace. It is believed to originate in the early 19th century or before, during a period when ships’ crews, especially those of military vessels, were sufficiently large to permit hauling a rope whilst simply marching along the deck. With the advent of merchant packet and clipper ships and their smaller crews, which required different working methods, use of the shanty appears to have declined or shifted to other, minor tasks.

Maceál’s Chaos Cooking at home – Rapalje Show #37

After the success of our first cooking video, Maceál will demonstrate in this video how he cannot cook!

We also show you our new van and Maceál gives you a small tour in the greenhouse of his neighbour, where he gets some of the ingredients for his ‘meal’.

This is the third video from the series where we show you how we sleep, eat and cook on festivals and on concerts.

And now it’s my turn to show you how I can not cook.

The ingredients are coming from several different places and opportunities.

This is the way I try to cook for you during a livestream on Facebook we do every tuesday night at 8 o’clock European time.

Before I got to the greenhouse of my neighbour to get some vegetables I also bumped into our new van..

And the first headliner for Zomerfolk 2018 is…


Today we are high on Zomerfolk! This message was supposed to only concern the fact that the pre-sale for Zomerfolk 2018 will start on December 1st. And we wanted to tell you that we have something new for the first 200 visitors who buy a weekend ticket; the Early Bird Weekend Ticket + Special Surprise! But … we have managed to book such a fantastic band for our beautiful party that we can no longer keep it to ourselves.

And that is why we proudly announce, even before the presale starts, that none other than the world famous Red Hot Chilli Pipers will be on stage at Zomerfolk on June 10th, 2018! The most famous bagpipes band in the world, not to be confused with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, has been around since 2002 and these Scots know as no other to give the audience an unforgettable show. With Rapalje we have shared the stage with these great musicians several times and we are fans!

So enjoy the fun with us and do not forget to get your tickets as from 1 December (11:00 hrs). The holidays are coming, so this is a wonderful time to treat yourself or someone else to a unique experience! Will we see you on the 9th and 10th of June at the most beautiful folk festival in the Netherlands? And who of your friends and family should go as well?
