For 15 years Linde Nijland was part of harmony singing folk duo Ygdrassil. 2007 marked the end of the group and Linde continued her career as a solo singer/songwriter. She has toured The Netherlands, UK, Austria, Belgium, Germany, Iran, India and Bhutan. Apart from five albums and a live DVD with Ygdrassil, she’s recorded “Visman” (1999), “Linde Nijland sings Sandy Denny” (2003), “Winterliederen” (2007), “A Musical Journey” (2011) and “I Am Here” (2014).

Since 2005 Linde has been working closely together with multi-instrumentalist Bert Ridderbos (guitars, cittern, accordion, banjo). She was invited to participate in the Sandy Denny anniversary tribute at The Troubadour in London and contributed to BBC Radio 2’s documentary “The Sandy Denny Story”. Later Linde was asked by legendary producer Joe Boyd to sing the songs “Fotheringay” and “Si tu dois partir” as part of an ‘All Star’ Fairport Convention reunion concert in the Barbican Hall in London with original Fairport members Richard Thompson, Simon Nicol, Judy Dyble, Iain Matthews, Ashley Hutchings, Dave Mattacks and Dave Pegg.

Linde and Bert Ridderbos took a two-month overland musical journey to the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan in 2008, travelling through Serbia, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and India. In Bhutan they performed in honour of the crowning of the fifth King. Along the way they performed and made music with traditional musicians. In Iran Linde found she was the probably first western woman to perform and give concerts since the revolution. The journey was filmed for a CD + road movie (with narration by Iain Matthews).

A music video for Linde’s song ‘Traveller’, made by Sam Chegini won awards at international film festivals in Canada (Royal Reel Award; Canada and the U.S.

2014 saw the release of ‘I Am Here’, Linde’s 10th album, containing many original songs, a few covers and traditional. Also included is Linde’s rendition of ‘Ocean Gypsy’, once recorded by the British band Renaissance.

Here’s Lindje with Fairport Convention, recorded by Flip Feij, at Zaandam, Vermaning van de doopsgezinde gemeente aan de Westzijde 80.
