Born on opposite ends of the Iron Curtain, three musicians with colorful personalities crossed paths at jam sessions in Prague. Fronted by songwriter Loes van Schaijk, Loes & The Acoustic Engineers brings an impressive collection of acoustic instruments to the stage. Their own “indie chamber-folk pop” sound, inspired by artists such as Paul Simon and Fleetwood Mac, blends storytelling lyrics with bluegrass virtuosity, jam band groove, and Celtic sensibility. 

Their very first public performance in June 2021 got them straight into the finals of the Porta competition, where they won 1st prize as well as being awarded by SAI and Radio Olomouc.

Loes van Schaijk: voice, upright bass, guitar, bodhrán

Honza Bartošek: voice, violin

Michal Rudolf Cádra: voice, guitar, mandolin, accordion
