Guus Herremans

Terug naar overzicht

Guus Herremans starts his musical studies at the age of 7 with Wilfrid Moonen. He qualifies himself in the diatonic accordion for folk music and on the piano for classical music. A few years later, he will be the first diatonic player to enter the prestigeous school of arts in Turnhout (Belgium) for a formation of 4 years. Toon Van Mierlo (Naragonia) will be his teacher of accordion. Later on, Guus will be teaching in this same school.

Simultaniously with his work as a teacher, Guus is a hard working professional musician with a rapidly growing career. His multiple creations and projects (Les Bottines Artistiques, A12, Me Guusta, Airboxes, Solo, etc...) are frequently invited to multiple festivals around Europe. Guus also often appears on stage as a guest player with famous folk musicians and bands (Variomatic, S-Tres, Aurélien claranbaux, Didier Laloy, Brotto Lopez, Duo bottasso, etc).

Beyond any doubt, his playing is sensible and masterly. Guus is also a composer. He is inspired by the traditional folk music, jazz music and world music for his own compositions. His artistic personality makes him an valuable and unavoidable musician of the contemporary folk scene.
