Westerhus/Endresen & Aarset/Strønen Double Duo at Kongsberg Jazz Festival
The second of seven shows being presented by All About Jazz, in collaboration with the Kongsberg Jazz Festival and Music Export Norway, under the banner Doing It Norway.
A double-duo show featuring two of Norway's most innovative guitarists, Stian Westerhus and Eivind Aarset.
Westerhus' has been performing in duo with the equally intrepid vocalist Sidsel Endresen for the past couple years, and their first release is coming later this year on Rune Grammofon. Aarset's first-time duo with Humcrush and Food co-founder Thomas Strønen promises to be equally exhilarating, as the guitarist and percussionist/electronics wizard deliver a set that, like Westerhus/Endresen, represents the best of music without a safety net.
