I Was Made For Loving You video from Rawhide

Warning… This might be the cutest bluegrass music video you’ve seen in a while.

It was created a couple of years ago by Belgian banjo player Thierry Schoysman for the opening track of Rawhide’s 2012 release, The Dark Is Barking. Thierry noticed his two children, along with a pair of neighbor kids, miming to the band’s version of I Was Made For Loving You, a song made famous by KISS, out in the backyard.

So he handed them instruments, set up a microphone, and started shooting. And this is what he got.


Thierry shared a few words about the process…

“Guitar and fiddle are my kids. I had seen them headbanging everytime I put on that song. So when the two friends came along, I put the instruments in their hands. Luckily for one of the girls I have a tiny banjo laying around. That’s a bit lighter than my Great Lakes top tension!”

Willem is on guitar, Luna on fiddle, Veerle on banjo, and Nele on mandolin. Very creative young people in Schoysman’s back yard!
