“Wolf!” is all about the forgotten folk music of the fifties and sixties. The album is strictly acoustic: vintage guitars, mandolin, ganjo and dobro (all played by the gifted Yvonne Ebbers) and a great violin (played by Diederik van Wassenaer). Wolf! involves the story of Gustav Wolfowitz (a successful, 57 year old, German-born music producer) who is confronted with the sudden loss of wealth and power, mainly due to bad investment advice. In what can easily be considered a belated midlife crisis, he also loses his – already unfaithful – partner Gina. Gustav ends up on the street, strumming one of the few possessions he didn’t have to do away with: his favourite country and western guitar. Eventually he’ll meet two talented young musicians, a violinist (“Boris”) and a woman guitar player (“Mary Ann”) and ask them to join his new folk group (“Blue Bandana”).
