Formiddagsjazz: Kongsberg Storband // Lindis Botolfsen: Down & Out
True to tradition, there will be a hefty mid-day party at the outdoor stage at the Gamle Norge pub on the Saturday.
Vocalist Lindis Botolfsen from Kongsberg has previously performed great concerts at the Kongsberg Jazz Festival. Now she returns with a whole new project: Lindis Botolfsen – Down & Out. They present music with both power and melancholy and will bring highlights from some of the best in music history, such as Billie Holiday, Monica Zetterlund and Bjørk. With her in the band she has several artists who are well known to Kongsberg’s audience.
Kongsberg Storband has gradually become very popular and it is well-deserved. Under the talented leader Jon Gunnar Tovsrud, these playful musicians make sure that the music both swings and bubbles and is full of hustle and bustle. Do not forget there will be impressive vocal inserts from some of the band’s youngest.
