was man so das Jahr lang macht und nicht unbedingt immer so merkt … 

this version is a first approach, certain things will be complemented … 

es ist jahresendend, jahresendlich mit Schneeflocken, die nicht so schnell schmelzen  

and a few categories are even waiting still for being filled … 

alles eben vielfältig und um viele Ecken spannende Musik von vielen Generationen

  1. Michael:

    Henning, this is quite a journey, backwards and forwards, and my promise: IF I am NOT on Sylt, or on the Canarian Islands by that time, I will be in the Domicil, in my old homtown Dortmund, in February listening to that band playing – and watching you drawing lines.

  2. Henning Bolte:

    merci, yes, and you’re welcome (guestlist)! Ursprünglich wollte ich mit Schlagzeugerin Sun-Mi Hong kommen, aber das klappte mit den Terminen nicht (Termine, ein besonderes Kapitel im Musikbetrieb).

  3. Even Sigurdsen Røstad:

    It’s an honor to be mentioned! Your enjoyment of the concert warms my heart. And guess what? We have a surprise – the concert will be released sometime this year!

  4. Olaf (Ost):

    Sehr schöne grafische Arbeiten.
