June 4 and 5, 2022. After a long time of Covid restrictions/isolation and closed country borders, Mirusia was finally allowed to travel again. After three years of absence she again landed on Dutch soil to perform her postponed open air concerts “Magical Moments” at the estate of Domicilia Events in the Limburg town of Ohé en Laak”. Ruud and Ineke had purchased tickets for this Pentecost weekend event in Limburg, but to our regret had to cancel at the very last moment due to a positive Covid test and had to remain in self isolation at home. Fortunately the “Official Mirusia Louwerse fanclub Nederland”, managed by Michel and Nicole Velema, posted excellent videos on Facebook for all Mirusia lovers to enjoy. With their permission we are adding a compilation of these videos to this page. Thanks Michel and Nicole. Duration of the video: 10 minutes.
