Ytre Suløens Jass-ensemble

- med Molde & Gossen gospelkor

50th-anniversary celebration with two gospel choirs!

Molde Cathedral 490,- fees incl.

Since the 1970s, Suløen has been one of the country's most popular trad bands, and has played almost every year at Moldejazz, in modern times also with its charismatic vocalist Tricia Boutté at the front. Now the band is celebrating 50 years of existence with a big concert in Molde Cathedra

When some boys - assisted by a couple of young adults - fifty years ago played for the home crowd for the first time in a tired cafe in Langevåg, they hardly knew that the band they had started fifty years later would play an anniversary concert in Molde Cathedral. YSJE developed at record speed, was brought to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, played at festivals and clubs all over Europe and became a popular attraction both at home and abroad. Today's line-up naturally contains different names than the 1973 version, among other things there are as many Moldensens as Sulamites in the band, but in any case we find an elite in Norwegian traditional jazz gathered here. The unmistakable Suløen sound is very much present, propelled by the incomparable Tricia Boutté from New Orleans.

Together with the celebrants, we will hear two gospel choirs. Gossen Gospel Voices comes from the island of Gossen in Molde's neighboring municipality Aukra, and joins forces with Molde Gospel to form a choir of around 50 singers. Both choirs have previously done various projects, with Adam Douglas, Knut Marius Djupvik, Knut Anders Sørum and others. Conductor Miriam Venås has worked with both choirs for several years, and managed to develop her own sound image, where both a powerful sound and good soloists are prominent. On this particular occasion, Gossen Gospel Voices and Molde Gospel will be led by Gro Merethe Hjertvik.

There is every reason to get your tickets early. While Moldejazz crammed 1,000 people into the church at Suløen concerts a few years ago, the fire regulations have now reduced the audience capacity to just over half.

Sturla Hauge Nilsen - trumpet, Lars Frank - clarinet and tenor sax, Gunnar Bech - trombone and vocals, Morten Gunnar Larsen - piano, David Gald - tuba, Svein Tore Anderson - banjo and guitar, Kristoffer Tokle - drums, Tricia Boutté - vocals
