Folkert is a pianist/composer from The Netherlands. He grew up in Tjerkwerd - which is a small village in the northern province of Friesland - where he learned to play the electronic organ.
Later on he embraced the piano as his main instrument.
In daily life Folkert is a piano teacher, he composes music for his band Evva and also writes piano compositions which he independently releases under his own name. His latest release is De Klim, a piece inspired by 'Into Thin Air' by Jon Krakauer, a book about a disastrous expedition to the summit of Mount Everest.
