Koot Brits - R.i.p.

Recommended Posts

South Africa's Boer music world lost a fantastic anglo concertina player and concertina builder today (June 20) - Koot Brits. Koot died from cancer. Koot's real name was Stephanus Jacobus Brits. Koot played in several Boer music bands over the years and recorded several CD albums. He also built approximately 90 anglo concertinas and one English concertina in his life time. Koot tuned and repaired hundreds of Wheatstone and Lachenal anglo concertinas for the Afrikaner Boer music scene. R.I.P.
