Words cannot describe the feeling that comes upon one when listening to Luc's creativity. This was the highlight of my day. After seeing the beauty of Brugges, then topping it off by bringing the harmony of this soothing music into the soul!

Luc Vanlaere’s show is about 30-40 mins of harp music and other stringed instruments followed by a brief description of what he had been playing. The music was excellent and the room is small so only about 20-30 people can watch. Highly recommended

Relaxing music with some interesting information on harps too! The musician is extremely talented, and all the music is his own composition.
