Gitaarlem is an initiative brought to life by Speelman & Speelman from Haarlem and the radio superstar Giel Beelen. The three men collaborated after word got out that the annual fundraiser (organized by 3FM) “Het Glazen Huis” would be hosted in the Dutch city of Haarlem.
Every month for the past year, different artists and bands from Haarlem have taken turns with a guitar which was specially built for Gitaarlem. Each artist had to create a song using this guitar, which they would later perform live on Giel Beelen’s show on 3FM. All of these songs have been combined to one album, Gitaarlem. This album will be released via Harlem Recordings, which is part of Haarlem’s very own Suburban Records.
