Amund Maarud Trio
One of the country's rawest and most respected guitarists is ready to entertain the audience in Christian's basement.
With a double-digit number of releases and thousands of concerts all over the world under his belt, Amund Maarud makes the trip to Kongsberg Jazzfestival and Christians Kjeller, the place where he has previously held legendary concerts.
"The guitar is my lightning rod. When I play a concert, time stops, it's all about capturing the moment and crawling into the music," says Amund.
Amund's trio consists of, in addition to himself on vocals and guitar, Vegard Staum on drums and Kim André Tønnesen on bass. "These guys are absolutely fantastic and every time we play together, something new comes up," says Amund. “We can't wait to play on one of my favorite stages in the whole country! »
