Pieter van Mill

Languages:

Originally from the Netherlands, after spending almost 15 years on Shetland as a holiday I finally moved to my favourite place. Folk music, great outdoors, Northern Lights and very friendly people! Currently I live on the island of Yell. As a past time I now sing (and play guitar) with da ShantY Yellmen, as the name says, an all male shanty choir.
