Robbert Fossen & Thomas Toussaint Duo
Robbert ended up 2nd at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in 2013; achieved awards at the Dutch Blues Foundation for 'Best Dutch Blues Vocalist 2014' and 'Best Dutch Blues Band in 2014’ with his Fossen & Struijk Band. So Robbert really needs no further introduction.
Thomas got to know Robbert early 2013 in a jazz club in The Hague during a live show of the Fossen & Struijk Band. Later, impressed with Thomas's harmonica skills, Robbert provided him an opportunity to accompany the legendary Chicago Blues singer Tail Dragger at the main stage of Zoetermeer Blues in 2014. A similar scenario arose at a live show by John Primer, ex-guitarist of the Muddy Waters Blues Band, in Amersfoort, a few months later. Soon after, Robbert and Thomas decided to join forces and started performing as a duo.
They make a vigorous duo that brings in-depth Chicago Blues. Most effective guitar playing, vocals with tremendous perception, a steady kick drum with extraordinary harmonica playing; this duo’s got it all!
(They can also be booked as a trio with Dave Warmerdam on piano.)
