Dirk Van der Linden
Dirk, born 1969 in Antwerpen, discovered the world of music on the guitar at the early age of 6. When he was 12, the piano came into his viewpoint, and the same time the jazz music. In the years to follow, Dirk learnt also to play the organ and the bass. His decision to work as a professional artist came at the age of 20 only.
Since then, he plays for various theatre productions of "Blauwe Maandag" and others. He is fully integrated in the Dutch-Belgian "Swingcats" as the pianist, touring through Europe. Dirk's activities are wide spread: "Andy Cooper's Top Eight Band", "The Vanilla Brothers", "The Hammond Organ Swing Machine", "Euro Trio", "Els De Doncker" and "The Gumbo Gabbers" are bands in which Dirk plays the piano, the organ or the guitar.
Concert tours led him to most of the European countries as well as to New Zealand and the USA.
