The revival of Maywood

Former Dutch Eurovision participant Maywood returns to the stage. Unfortunately, the sisters have not patched up their quarrel, Alice May just found herself a new Wood.

In 1990, Maywood represented the Netherlands at the Eurovision Song Contest in Zagreb. With the song Ik wil alles met je delen, they achieved the 15th place. The duo was then formed by two sisters, Alie and Doetie de Vries (pictured), who used the stage names Alice May and Karen Wood.

The duo was pretty successful in the Netherlands in the eighties. With the song Late at night, they even topped the Dutch charts. Shortly after the Eurovision Song Contest, the duo split up as the sisters had a hell of a row and haven't even spoken to each other since.

Now, Alie de Vries (the blond singer/pianist) found another artist to form a duo with. Together with the unknown Rose Louwers she will start performing again under the name Maywood. Their first appearance in public is scheduled for December 3rd in Antwerp (Belgium).
