There is something mystical about Elrieke and her music, which when joined with Leopold is also very special too. There is a unique style, magic and presence which flows into the air when she sings and leaves her audience quite spellbound.
Elrieke is also a composer with extraordinary talent and many styles that connect her with her guitar playing. She has also inspired other professional musicians who we know and has performed with and carries such a background charisma and care when making music with others.
We love you Elrieke.

Having seen Elrieke and Poldy play on a number of occasions, sometimes as part of “Sisters in Song” but especially as a duo, I wouldn’t hesitate to shout from the rooftops: “Go and see them perform!” They really are wonderful performers and a real breath of fresh air, whether singing one of Elrieke’s own compositions or performing one of their brilliant and original covers of Folk and Classic numbers.
Elrieke’s voice is as stunning as her looks whether singing solo or together with Poldy (who has a lovely voice of his own too) and their guitar playing is both beautifully musical and always sympathetic to the lyrics of the song. Poldy, especially, can do wonderful things with that guitar of his.
On the occasions I have seen them, I have been impressed too with the wonderful rapport they achieve with their audience, enchanting and entertaining them until the very last notes of the very last encore of the evening. If you get the chance to see them, in concert or in the local hostelry, don’t miss them! They truly are a brilliant live act, playing and singing gorgeous songs with an integrity that shines out from the stage. You really will have a wonderful evening, what more can I say but…… Go, See!

Dear Linda, Elrieke and Poldy,
Last night was one of the best concerts that I’ve seen in ages. Your interaction on stage was brilliant, the songs were (as always) stunning and the vocals were out of this world!
I have been involved with, and listening to, acoustic music all my life, and an evening like last night reminds me of just why this music has played such a big role in my life. You are lovely people, great musicians and I am proud to know you. Good luck with the recording, looking forward to the new cd, cheers, Tony
