Ole Børud

No one who has followed "Stjernekamp" this autumn can have avoided noticing the far from silent crowd of supporters in the hall when Ole Børud enters the stage

Concert start: 23:00 Single ticket price: NOK 450

Børud was last seen through his participation in NRK's ​​popular television programme, Stjernekamp. In his musical background, Børud has touched a large audience in several genres, which he proved greatly during his participation in Stjernekamp. Vise, blues, EDM and opera are some of the genres that brought Børud to a solid third place and into several Norwegian homes.

Ole has now returned to his musical roots in soul and funk-tinged pop - and this is precisely what you will be able to experience during his concert at Kongsberg Jazz 2019. With a new album under his arm, he will take the stage with his fine-tuned band and then offer those on funky, soulful West Coast rock of the highest order.



It is good to have Ole Børud back at the festival. A musician's musician who is respected by artists in most genres. That is why it was very gratifying that most people "discovered" his fantastic talent at Stjernekamp this autumn. We've had a sneak peek at the album which is just around the corner, it sounds fantastic. And he has a fantastic band with him! says Kai Gustavsen, festival manager



As a second-generation member of the Børud family, he has practically been on stage full-time since he could stand on two legs. The sky-high level of the musical achievements may stem from this, but Børud's musical history is long. He has participated in a number of musical collaborations and projects that have touched home and abroad in several genres. 

Børud was a metal musician - not least in the group Extol, which created interest worldwide with its crowd-funded comeback in 2013. As a guitarist and arranger, he belongs to the elite of the country's live and session musicians, with collaborations with artists such as Torun Eriksen, Sofian and Oslo Gospel Choir, not to mention his contribution to "Fly Away" (2009) - an international tribute album to David Foster, where Børud stood "shoulder to shoulder" with contributors such as Bill Champlin and Mike Landau.

Børud has touched a large audience in several genres, and has, among other things, an enthusiastic audience in Japan - where he has played at the jazz club Cotton Club in Tokyo on several occasions.
