Best Western Swing

Bjørnsonhuset 490,- fees incl.

Stjernekamp- and Spellemannprize winner Adam Douglas is one of Norway’s leading artists. When he meets Ola Kvernberg and Stian Carstensen and the rest of the gang in the terrific band Best Western Swing, the audience can look forward to a great concert in Bjørnsonhuset.

US-born Douglas first came to Norway in 2008. His career really took off after he won the TV contest «Stjernekamp» in 2017 and received the Spellemannprisen in the blues class in 2021. He has become a popular artist with a large and distinctive voice who delivers varied music inspired by blues, soul, gospel, jazz and roots. Fifteen years in open Norwegian landscapes have also influenced his music.

Best Western Swing stands for a mixture of jazz/country/bluegrass, slightly humorously called horse jazz. Accordion phantom Stian Carstensen shows that he is a master of the steel guitar and banjo. Staffan William-Olsson has been one of our leading and most popular guitarists for several decades. Guitar colleague Asle Røe, originally from Midsund in Molde, is also in the process of making a name for himself at home after playing in the USA for many years, starting in Houston, Texas.

A rock-solid comp with Finn Guttormsen on bass and Jarle Vespestad on drums makes us sure that this will swing! When you add fiddler Ola Kvernberg to this pot, this will indeed be a very special concert with virtuoso and captivating music. Be ready for a rare performance, set up especially for Moldejazz 2023.

Adam Douglas – vocals, guitar, Ola Kvernberg - fiddle, Stian Carstensen – steelguitar, accordion, Asle Røe – guitar, Staffan William-Olsson – guitar, Finn Guttormsen – bass, Jarle Vespestad – drums
