Ton van Bergeyk, the Dutch Wizard

Ton van Bergeyk started his musical carreer on guitar and ukulele playing as a fingerpicker, inspirated by the music of Oscar Aleman. Jørgen Larsen tells in the text Oscar Aleman - Ton van Bergeyk how Ton shares licks and tricks from Oscar Aleman recordings. Thanks to the releases of Stefan Grossman's Kicking Mule the music of this skilled guitar player has been recorded in the 1970s.

Ton van Bergeyk who played in groups like the Gangbusters and the Beau Hunks now is the regular guitar and banjo player of the Dutch Swing College Band.

The article of Jørgen Larsen is to be found here . Enjoy it.
