Øystein Sunde

Norwegian legend ready for Kongsberg Jazzfestival

Øystein Sunde’s solo career began at Dolphin’s show club in Oslo, 1966. “It was a club full of enthusiastic beginners in the late decades. You got a chair delivered, the opportunity to sing three songs, and then it was second man up” says Sunde about this time. After four years at Dolphin’s, he released his first album – which gave a huge turning point.

Today Sunde can look back on a 50-year history full of record releases, shows successes, TV productions and collaboration with the best in Norwegian showbizz – Ingrid Bjørnov, «Gitarkameratene», Halvdan Sivertsen, Finn Kalvik, Eldar Vågan, Dizzie Tunes & Grethe Kausland, Hege Schøyen and Vazelina Bilopphøggers – to name a few.

During his show in Kongsberg, Sunde will bring his legendary band, “Meget i Sløyd”. In addition he will bring friends on stage with him – Staffan William-Olsson’s jazz band “Sharp Nine”, Reidar Larsen on piano and choir from «Erfarne Kvinnfolk».


After several years of trying, we finally succeed getting legendary Øystein Sunde on the festival poster – along with all these great jazz musicians, says Festival manager Kai Gustavsen.
