Jukebox Friday: Anveld - Wals Pour Marie-Claude

Anveld is an Old Dutch word meaning 'anvil'. It is also the name of a Belgian folk band formed in 2002 by Eddy Vanacker. They have played at the Dranouter Folk Festival, the Festival van het Zeemanslied, the Deerlycke Folkfestival, the Gentse Feesten (here's a great clip from 2006), and the Fers Folkfestival in the Netherlands.

Although this band hasn't been heard from in years, the power of YouTube allows us to enjoy this amazing instrumental track.



If you happen to have any information about the fate of this devilishly interesting group, please tell me in the comments!

  1. Nice song, baby :D <3

    The melody reminds me a little bit of The Lord of the Rings... am I the only one hearing this? :)

  2. Hm... I didn't think of that. Maybe they'll use it in "The Hobbit"?

  3. I love "Mazulma" it's a perfect song from Anveld. i don't know much from them. Here, in Portugal we can't find anything related to Anveld. Are they still playing? Why can't we find anything in youtube for example?

  4. It seems like they haven't played together in a while. I'm really hoping for a reunion, though! Thanks for the tip, I will try to find "Mazulma" somehow.
