The Troubadour-singer Lenny Kuhr find anniversary ‘no merit’
Lenny Kuhr, who in 1969 on a shared first place finisher in the Eurovision song contest with the song De Troubadour, is fifty years in the profession. “That I find no merit. It’s nice that I can do this and that it is given me.”
The singer presents Wednesday, on her birthday, her new and 31st album, Kissed by eternity. The album was created thanks to crowdfunding.
The album contains fourteen songs, including thirteen new and one new version of Always homesick from 1994. The song Eliah made the singer with her granddaughter Lihi (10) even before her grandson last year, was born. Lihi also sings along.
Kuhr, Wednesday, 67, is working on her new album along with bassist Misscha Kol and guitarist Reinier voet. “He plays a kind of gipsy jazz, it’s the sound of the fado. That is a sound where I always have hated, which I think ‘where have you been these years has been’. This cd is for me very fresh and pure. It is very close to me,” says the singer in The Telegraph.
