Hi, I’m Jacq and I live in Hoorn (Holland). I’ve seen Nina 5 times in concert in Holland. Once after a concert (Jazz Mecca in Maastricht) I even shook her hand (hope that is proper English…..).
Once I was member of another older Nina Simone -forum.

Hey Jacq, welcome! Lucky you, I only got to see Nina in concert once. Didn't get to shake her hand either :(

We used to have a forum installed at the old site L'hommage: Nina Simone (http://www.high-priestess.com) but that site was ended about 10 years ago. I do still have a backup of that forum and hopefully one day soon can import all the old posts.

Glad to see you (again)!

Hey Jacq, follow up question for you...

Was the Maastricht concert in October 1992 or in November 1993? There are conflicting reports online about the date of the concert so wanted to see if you knew/remember.

Here's the Getty Images gallery of photos from that performance and the photos are given two different dates: https://www.gettyimages.com/search/2/image?family=editorial&phrase="nina+simone"+"Maastricht"

Hey Aaron,
it was October 1992. It was a great concert. I also saw Betty Carter and Fats Domino. I was with a friend and we had VIP tickets. Thank you for the foto’s!
