Welcome to an exclusive afternoon concert with one of Norway’s leading artists, Jan Eggum.
Some say that Jan Eggum is the personification of melancholy. Well, if anyone is going to deconstruct that myth it has to be Jan Eggum himself. Eggum is a master with the audience, creating shrewd and tender reflections on modern humanity, hunting for substance in their lives. On stage he radiates humour, warmth and life experience that can pretty much only be encountered at – a concert with Jan Eggum. A major figure on the Norwegian singer-songwriter scene since the mid-1970s, Eggum is known for being a cheerful melancholic. He describes himself as an artist who sings simple songs about difficult stuff – mostly about personal relationships. His music is firmly based in the ballad tradition, with clear references to jazz and rock. Jan Eggum has won several Spellemann prizes (Norwegian music awards), both as a solo artist and as a member of Gitarkameratene.
Jan Eggum tours Norway in 2022 – and after you’ve heard him once you will want to hear him again, and again. So, a couple of extra tickets, maybe?
For this concert in Kongsberg, Jan Eggum has assembled a special band with musicians known from groups such as the soul band Fieh. We can’t wait to hear them!
