See images of significant and remarkable organ men and women in the exhibition Street scene of the Museum van Speelklok tot Pierement.

 

As part of the Oral History Project about the street organ culture in the Netherlands, several interviews were held with several famous organ men and women. The street organ culture is a beautiful culture that should not be lost, and a large part of this culture is in the people.

Watch the videos in which Tine and Leon Perlee, Ruud Brienen, Joop Budding, Jan Kees de Ruijter, Pieter van Aken and Franky Vlaeminck, among others, tell their stories. A beautiful time document, which goes back as far as the interviewees can remember. We record a part of the Dutch history of street organs, through the stories of organ builders and restorers, operators, organ grinders and enthusiasts, including the youngest generation.

 

The Oral History Project is part of the exhibition Street Organ, which is now on display in the museum. Three of the total of eight interviews can be seen in the exhibition.
