FOLLOW US ON NEW FACEBOOK PAGE

Since 2009 we successfully promote blues in Wijk bij Duurstede. In recent years more than 150 blues bands have played in the Calypso theatre, at Kasteel Duurstede and in the pubs and this year another 35 bands will join them. For the youth, there was a blues in school project at the Revius, a mouth harmonica group was formed and numerous workshops and blues films were offered. One of the promotional channels for this was Facebook where BluesinWijk had over 4000 followers, including many 100’s from Wijk and surroundings.  However, at the end of June, Facebook placed restrictions on the Facebook page and BluesinWijk was no longer visible for its followers. Why this happened was completely unclear. Several objections and questions to Facebook did not result in useful answers and/or solutions.  We decided this week not to wait any longer and created a new facebook page. Through this page we hope to get our old likers/followers back soon and provide them with the latest blues news from Wijk. Click on the screen below to like us.
