Frans Nieuwenhuis (born 1936) sings in Veluws dialect.

Veluws is a Dutch Low Saxon dialect which is spoken on the Veluwe. Veluws is usually divided into two main dialects, West-Veluws (West Veluws) and Oost-Veluws (East Veluws), these two dialects are reasonably similar but differ in grammar. For example: in Oost-Veluws they say ie warkt/wärkt (you are working) and in West-Veluws jie warken/waarken (you are working).

West-Veluws is also more influenced by Dutch. The closer you get to the border with Oost-Veluws, the more the dialects differ from Standard Dutch. For example in the central part where West-Veluws is spoken they say hie staot, in the North Western part they say hij steet compared to hij/hee stiet (he is standing) in Oost-Veluws, this already has a more Low Saxon influence. Hattem, the North Eastern part where Oost-Veluws is spoken has a heavy Sallandic influence.
