Blog amok.. so this blog is a liiitle glimpse into my life as a professional drummer.


I’m not posting all my gigs here, but only when I feel it could be fun to do so :) At my former blogsite, I sorted the posts old —> recent, so the cronology was somewhat correct. This feature is unfortunately not available with WP.  So, please ignore the collateral damage that have appeared, by importing the old post, to this blog (only the first 13 pages). All photos are by me, unless otherwise mentioned. Use the navigation at the side of this page to skip forward or backward in time. So, here we go…

OSLO – Riksscenen

I am her, to rehearse for the opening concert of Førde Festival 2017 with the great «Nordic Sound Folk Orchestra»

The concert is called “Klangen af Norden” (the sound of the north), and the music is composed by the four composers: Antti Järvelä (Finland), Mia Marin (Sverige), Harald Haugaard (Danmark) and Jorun Marie Kvernberg (Norge).

Feat. 8 soloist… + Mia Marin (vio), Olov Johansson (keyed fiddle), Lena Willemark, Olav Luksengård Mjelva

The concert is performed by a combined orchestra, consisting of the fiddle group “Gudbrandsdølenes spelemannslag”, and selected band members from various groups of the north.

SO… 40 folk musicians, 4 composers og 8 soloists. Here we go;

… well not quite, but rehearsal from 12.00 to 22.00 and again from 10.00 to departure, can cause something that resembles death :)
