Di Derre with the Trondheim soloists | Hedvig Mollestad trio with guests
Én billett - tre konserter!
Di Derres has a unique status in Molde. When the previous concert at Romsdalsmuseet was announced before Christmas in 2017, the interest and attention was as if the artist was a great international star.
This is a concert many have hoped and waited for, and we are certain that the beautiful «Marka-concert» will be worth the wait. The «Marka-concert» was first performed together with Kringkastingsorkesteret at Frognerseteren in 2019. For Moldejazz 2023, Di Derre will perform an expanded version together with Trondheimsolistene.
Di Derre with Trondheimsolistene
In 2018, Di Derre celebrated their 25th anniversary and had a new album out, «Høyenhall». 2023 will be the 30th anniversary of this super popular Molde band. Hwever, that is just one of many good reasons to bring them home. The band is constantly adding new yards to its success, and plays a number of well liked concerts around the country every summer.
The audience appriciate well known, classic Di Derre songs, such as «Faren til Ivar» and «90-metersbakken» regardless of whether they perform at Stiklestad og in Grimstad, even though many of the songs’ textual content refers to Jo Nesbø’s childhood in Molde.
Through the many concerts, Di Derre has become a very cohesive and «tight» band, and all the members contribute with their own spesific identity and musicality. Unni Wilhelmsen has given the band an extra dimension.
Make sure to experience the special occasion when Trodheimsolistene augmented by musicians from the Air Force Music Corps under the direction of Kork conductor Nick Davis. This will be the concert everyone in Molde MUST attend in 2023.
Di Derre: Jo Nesbø – vocals og guitar, Magnus Larsen jr. – bass, Espen Stenhammer – drums, Halvor Holter – keyboards, Unni Wilhelmsen – guitar og vocals, and Lars Jones – guitar, harmonica and other instruments.
The Trondheim soloists supplemented by musicians from the Air Force Music Corps under the direction of Nick Davis.
Hedvig Mollestad Trio wit guestes
Hedvig Mollestad Trio is the band Hedvig started as a result of her receiving the SpareBank1 SMN Jazz Talent Award in 2009. The following year, the band debuted at Moldejazz and the rest is history - including six studio albums, a live record, a slew of tours, and a number of award nominations.
The band has played at most jazz festivals in Norway and also plays equally well at rock festivals. They have been on tour in Japan, Malaysia, the USA, Canada, and large parts of Europe. One of the many highlights was when they warmed up for jazz legend John McLaughlin during the London Jazz Festival in the autumn of 2014. Hedvig Mollestad Trio, or HM3 as the band likes to be called, will open the concert day at Romsdalsmuseet on Friday 21 July.
The plan is that there will be more guest artists at the concert, but these have not been finally confirmed yet.
A few years ago there was a "buzz" in the music industry about a vocal super talent from our county who was studying medicine in Trondheim. A lot has happened since then, the medical studies have been shelved and she has been praised to the skies by internationally recognized media such as The Fader and New Musikal Express (NME). On the live side, the Greek-born Sunnmørsjenta has held impressive concerts both in Norway and elsewhere in Europe. Among other things, she has opened for Madrugada in front of 28,000 people at the Olympic Stadium in Athens.
Expectations were high when she released her debut album "In Hindsight" last year, a brilliant pop album that contains both catchy and strong "pop bangers", but also magnificent and emotional ballads that allow Amanda's great voice to shine. The 13 songs are extremely well played and well produced, and Amanda has brought along a stellar team of musicians: "I was determined that if I was going to write an album, I should do it together with a few of my favorite musicians. Me and Bjørn Helge Gammelsæter have written all the songs together, and on some of the songs songwriters and artists such as dePresno, Hilde Skaar, Thea Wang and Mathias Wang have participated. They are all people I greatly admire. I wanted to work with a few people because I wanted everyone to understand the story and the feelings behind each and every word. Most of the album is done the old-fashioned way with skilled musicians in a real studio. It therefore feels extra good that the same musicians are also my band, and when we soon go on tour it will be to recreate the beauty we created together in the studio." With her at the concerts, Amanda therefore has a strong and well-played band, consisting only of good friends and acquaintances from Sunnmøre. Then it almost goes without saying that the interaction will be good and playful.
It will be great to experience the pop phenomenon Amanda Tenfjord live at Romsdalsmuseet before Hedvig Mollestad Trio and Di Derre!
