FRIESIAN PROMS has disclosed the first line-up of exceptional artists for Thursday the 13th and Friday the 14th of January 2022: born artist Waylon, illusionist Hans Klok and singer alias lover of Friesian horses Samantha Steenwijk are going to make an appearance at the FRIESIAN PROMS in the WTC Expo in Leeuwarden! Start of the ticket sales for KFPS members is on Thursday the 4th of November, all in the hope that the three-day Friesian horse event with STALLION INSPECTION can go ahead in the presence of audiences.
A tense week
For now it is a tense wait to find out if possible tightening of Corona measures will have consequences for the upcoming FRIESIAN PROMS and the STALLION INSPECTION. In the face of all that a team of enthusiasts is continuing their work to finalise the preparations for this wonderful event with Friesian horses. After all, it’s just a matter of about ten weeks to go…
From pop to popular classical music
With the names of these three artists the line-up is not complete by a long shot. There are The Dutch Tenors and the sisters Annemarijn, Willemijn and Lilian, alias LUNEDI who have agreed to give a performance. And that results in a musical cross-over repertoire ranging from pop to popular classical. The playlist includes music by Queen, Willy Nelson, Musical Cats, James Brown, Offenbach, Ed Sheeran as well as well-known songs from the artists themselves.
More than 250 assistants
The artists and all other acts will have live accompaniment from the 42 musicians of The Symphonic Music Connection under the leadership of Theo Brouwer and the impressive 72-strong FRIESIAN PROMS Choir with their leader Akke Bosma. Special effects will add lustre to the performances. In total more than 250 people are involved with this show- and musical evening, which is on track to its sixth edition.
Friesian horses a fixed asset
The FRIESIAN PROMS cannot exist without that other ‘top artist’, the Friesian horse. How and in what combination or shape the artists are going to perform together with the Friesian horses remains a surprise. It is full steam ahead behind the scenes to guarantee a high carat of black gold in FRIESIAN PROMS. One thing’s for sure, Samantha Steenwijk will give a performance together with her horse Voice.
Besides all this, talks are still ongoing between the organisation and a horse show from abroad. If this proves to be possible in the light of the situation regarding Covid-19 remains to be seen. Confirmed is the arrival of The Horseman from France, a humoristic act that will put in an appearance at FRIESIAN PROMS.

Any day soon all members of the KFPS will receive a letter by post or email with their personal discount code for ordering tickets. Ticket sales for own members opens on Thursday the 4th of November at 9:00 am. On Thursday the 11th of November ticket sales for the STALLION INSPECTION and FRIESIAN PROMS is open to the general public.
