Our hobby is to make music together. We play a mix of Country and Bluegrass Music and more.... Songs from Clint Black, John Fogerty, Charlie Moore, Hank Williams, Stanley Brothers, Reno & Smiley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Buck Owens, Carlene Carter, Lou Reid, Alan Jackson, Gram Parsons and even Elvis
The bands exists of Dennis, Katerina, Patrick and Hilde Schut and sooner or later probably also young Paddy. Dennis has been playing Country and Bluegrass since 1976, when he went on tour with US Bluegrass legend Charlie and later formed his own band Spruce Pine and toured all over Europe and even played in the US and Japan. They backed up US Country and Bluegrass star Jim Eanes on several tours. Katerina played with her own band Blue Roses in the Czech Republic and Lithuania. With Patrick and Hilde, the Schut Family Band played in Austria as well as on several festivals in the United Kingdom.
All band members sing and play several instruments. Dennis plays acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin and fiddle, Katerina plays acoustic guitar, doghouse bass and electric bass as well as drums, Patrick plays acoustic and electric lead guitar, 5-string banjo, mandolin, bass and drums and Hilde plays bass, guitar and mandolin. Patricia - Paddy - started out on the guitar recently and would like to learn to play the fiddle. She loves to sing!
