What's Ponkiesburg???

Hundreds Of Years Of Jamming...

The Dutch word "ponk," meaning "persistent player of stringed instruments," later transformed into the English "plonk." The name was applied to this hill just south of the town of Breukelen more than three hundred years ago, as it became known for occasional gatherings of musicians who would play into the night, or until the local farmers set the dogs loose. Archaelogical digs have uncovered broken strings, lost capos, cracked picks, and a fragment of a banjo neck with a dog's tooth embedded in it.
