One ticket, two concerts: Beady Belle / Hedvig Mollestad Trio

Beady Belle has just finished a two-week tour of Europe, to much success! Their new album "Cricklewood Broadway" with lyrics based on the novel "white Teeth" by Zadie Smith has received brilliant reviews from a unison musical press. Beady Belle mixes soul, funk, pop and jazz in a way like no others. It sounds groovy on CD and vinyls, but it's during the concerts it truly explodes. When Beady Belle last performed at Moldejazz she excited a large crowd at the Romsdals Museum, and now we anticipate that a large amount of people will want to re-experience a great artist when the band closes out this years string of concerts at Plassen.

Hedvig Mollestand received the Sparebank 1 talent-award in 2009 and made a smash debut with her trio at Moldejazz the following year. With two CD/vinyl released that have received the top score in, among others, Mojo, Uncut and The New York Times the trio, as well as Hedvig herself, are set for Moldejazz once again. This is a coherent and hard-hitting band, and Hedvig has turned into a true "riff-master" that combines a classic, heavy bluesrock-approach with sharp and progressive jazz - something which have made reviewers pull out big guitar-names such as Jimmy Page, Tony Iommi, Sonny Sharrock and John Scofield.
