Corrie van Binsbergen

Guitarist/Composer/Bandleader Corrie van Binsbergen (1957) finished her classical guitar studies in 1983. She has been active in a very wide musical range and played with numerous different bands and groups, in pop, jazz and improvised music, music for theatre and danceproductions, recording sessions, TV-shows and even the circus. In 1999, Corrie van Binsbergen received the VPRO/Boy Edgar prize (the most prestigious award in Dutch jazz- and improvised music) for her creativity, craftsmanship and versatility. This prize is considered an oeuvre-prize.

In 1986, she started her own band Corrie en de Brokken. Ten years later, she founded the Stichting Brokken realising every one or two years a new, surprising and succesfull production where she brings together different musical styles or artforms for a far more broader public than only jazz reaches.
