Spring 2013- Ad Vanderveen releases a diptych of live authorized bootlegs:
“LIVE AT CROSSROADS” is a solo performance for Crossroads Radio, a roots and Americana station in The Netherlands. In an intimate theatre show Vanderveen features songs from his critically acclaimed 2012 CD “Driven By A Dream”, as well as older favorites. The solo setting makes for intense deliveries, focusing on the content of the songs in a relaxed interaction with the audience. Accompanying himself on acoustic guitar, harmonica, footstomp and piano, Ad moves between sensitive songs, uptempo pieces and piano ballads. Sit back for this one and enjoy an evening of pure and honest acoustic music.
“LIVE LABOR”, the sequel and counterpart to “Crossroads”, shows another side of Ad Vanderveen in a rocking show with his long-time garage band The O’Neils. On tour in Germany in the spring of 2013, Ad and his band rip through an energetic set of songs, old and new, propelled by an enthousiastic audience. Alongside compact song versions there is plenty of electric guitar improvisation and frenzied jamming on themes like “Well Of Wonder”, “Water Under The Bridge”, and the new and previously unreleased “The Abyss”. Get into a sweaty trance for this one and turn it up!
