Kjartan Fløgstad Band at the Poetry Oasis

This year at the Poetry Oasis we are proud to present the Kjartan Fløgstad Band, which comprises author Kjartan Fløgstad, writer and journalist Tom Stalsberg, bass-player and singer Steinar Raknes, together with rhythm-man Odin Staveland.

While KFB is not to be confused with KGB, their ambition is world domination from Murmansk in the north to Sauda in the west, and perhaps Finnskogen in the east after midnight (they’re not sure about the south …)

KFB’s starting point is Fløgstad’s poetic writings in the collection Sandharpesongar (“Sand harp songs”; Gyldendal 2018), together with new music by Raknes. Expect a blissful mix of tones from near and far – from American jukeboxes to Norwegian landskappleik and folk music improvisation, from jazz clubs and blues bars to cathedrals and the high mountains.

There will be new texts by the writers on both relevant and irrelevant subject matter. Fløgstad’s critically acclaimed novel Due og Drone (“Dove and Drone”; Gyldendal 2019) will be presented, along with a concert full of song, readings, solemnity, the supernatural – and perhaps a touch of wordplay.
