3 Hands Clapping

A 3 Hands Clapping performance is a musical adventure. It spans the whole spectrum from breathtakingly earthy grooves to serene, intimate beauty.

The virtuosic individual level of playing is an important aspect but even more striking is the magical ensemble playing.  It’s transparent and flexible ranging from “less is more” to dynamic and exciting interaction. The trio trades ideas with an unpretentious joy of being there in the moment, unabashedly sharing their love of music.

Tiehuis, de Jong and Fermie learned their craft supporting various international stars. George Duke, Toots Thielemans, Chaka Khan, Ivan Lins, Batida and the Metropole Orchestra, have all benefited from the trio’s versatile musical abilities.

“We noticed that when the 3 of us were together on a studio date or a project the music was being lifted to a higher level but also that a great deal of fun and spontaneity became part of the equation. We played a concert with the trio and realized that this felt too good to be a one-of.”
