Steinar Raknes STILLHOUSE Band
Favorite enters the big stage!
Some artists have a unique connection with their audience, and some concerts raise the roof, no matter how high the ceiling is. Steinar Raknes from Midsund is one of those.
From playing double bass with historic jazz artists such as Chick Corea, Michael Brecker and Bobby McFerrin, has he taken a break from Jazz and dived into roots, blues, rock and americana.
Raknes has a striking ability to write songs that feels familiar and cherished from the first tune, but also making goosebump-feeling cover versions from heroes like Bob Dylan, Depeche Mode and Bruce Springsteen. The premiere of "On the Road" with Raknes and his Stillhouse band at Moldejazz 2020 was a huge success.
Raknes has not been resting, he recently released the album, which he in isolation, has recorded at home in his own apartment. We are excited for a reunion with the crowd-pleasing Steinar Raknes and his Stillhouse band and to be able to present him on the outdoor stage at Romsdalsmuseet! With Unni Wilhelmsen by his side, the band is even better. She has many fans in Molde, both from her days as a solo artist and not least after she joined “Di Derre”.
