A trio with Peer de Graaf (vocals), Henk Koekkoek (ukelele, saxophone) and Piet Maas (contrabas). Peer de Graaf began as early as 1978 as 'Meneertje Peertje' in the theatre. Meneertje Peertje is still active but in the meantime Peer de Graaf has grown into a mature actor, cabaret artist, musician, presenter and improvisor. De Graaf not only performs in the theatre, but is also active in education and health care. With Thijs Borsten he makes up the duo Trapperdetrap, which specializes in adult songs for children. On every cd a special guest can be heard, such as Mathilde Santing, Wende Snijders and Denis Jannah. The duo aims at making fine music which is also popular with non-parents. De Graaf is an allround performer who sings, makes jokes and tells stories with the greatest ease. He has been doing that for years in various acts and small bands; in theatres, during De Parade but also at block parties. Last year the same trio, by the name of Trio Lang en Gelukkig (Happily Everafter), was a great success at the festival.(WU 2012)
