Særingfest is an evening of music, sound and noise in all shapes and forms – simply a festival within the festival! The term “Særing” in this connection refers to a person who enjoys music and artitistic expressions, which are ”outside of the box”.
Food, drinks, music and a fantastic atmosphere from 18:00 PM.
Besides being very active touring musicians, Paal Nilssen-Love and Ståle Liavik Solberg are also booking concert series and festivals like Blow Out! and All Ears in Oslo.
They have now created Særingfest at Smeltehytta, and for those who dare to take the chance to walk a few blocks below Green Dolphin Street, the following exquisite treats in various formats are on the menu:
PASCAL NIGGENKEMPER SOLO
With members from Tigerfish & Lioncats, The Thing, Fire! Orchestra, etc. Together they are a union we have strong faith in.
Signe Emmeluth (sax), Mats Gustafsson (sax), Ole Morten Vågan (bass), Kresten Osgood (drums)
The Wire wrote of English Sarah Gail Brand that she was “the most exciting trombone player for years”. One of her more solid partners for several years has been the drummer Mark Sanders.

The German / French double bass player Pascal Niggenkemper handles his instrument in a way that seems unconventional even amongst the most blasé and hardened jazz enthusiasts.
