Østerdalsmusikk revisited

Artist in Residence

In 1975, a record of folk music from Østerdalen was released, arranged and played by Norwegian jazz musicians, including Torgrim Sollid, Jan Garbarek - and Lars Martin Thomassen. The latter would 7 years later become the father of this year's Artist in Residence at Moldejazz.

Teatret Vårt (PLASSEN) 490,- fees incl.

Ny versjon av en tidsmarkør i norsk jazzhistorie!

The album was called "Østerdalsmusikk" and was the starting point for Søyr, Torgrim Sollid's major project, but it is also an important time marker in Norwegian jazz history, and a record that Hedvig has had a close and dear relationship with throughout her musical life. Now she has chosen to touch her Holy Grail, and together with a bunch of wonderful musicians will interpret a selection of the songs from Østerdalsmusikk.

Here we can expect a wonderful star-studded ensemble that enhances the beautiful old material, gives it new structure and revitalized value, almost 50 years after jazz musicians did it the first time.

Sissel Vera Pettersen – sax, Trygve Seim – sax, Fredrik Ljungkvist – sax, Emil Strandberg – trumpet, Jon Balke – piano and synth, Trevor Dunn – bass, Ole Mofjell – drums and Hedvig Mollestad – guitar
