Happy 100th Birthday to Jaap Valkhoff

Jaap Valkhoff is a legendary song writer and accordion player from Rotterdam. His glory time was back in the good old days when a man was a sailor, a woman was a dame and a hooker was a hooker. He would have been 100 years old on the 16th of August 2010. Here is our humble version of one of his most famous tunes "Diep In Mijn Hart". I definitely recommend you also watch this video of Jaap performing this song at his home in 1990.
