In cooperation with the Wijkse middle class, (former) entrepreneurs and the catering industry, a large-scale blues walk will be organised on Friday 3 April. A unique and special project carried out by a few dozen volunteers. Starting at 20:00, the walks will start from café Ome Ko and four guides from Wijk will lead the participants through the city centre. In several locations, inhabitants of Wijk tell old stories and anecdotes about the time when Wijk was still isolated and poor. Just like the black slaves last century in the south of the United States. Their blues music managed to carry their heavy existence back then. Blues musicians of today (Thomas Toussaint Band & Friends) will let you hear some appropriate blues. Around 10 pm everyone will be back at Ome Ko for a smashing afterparty. A joint session of the participating blues musicians will turn this blues happening into an unforgettable evening. A maximum of 100 participants can take part in the blues walk. Participation in the walk & afterparty is € 12.50. E-tickets for sale at www.bluesinwijk.nl and at pub Ome Ko. The walk is less suitable for people with mobility problems.
After the walk, afterparty with the Thomas Toussaint Band & Friends. Free entrance for participants of the blueswalk. Other visitors (if there is enough room) € 7,50 at the door.
