Espen Eriksen Trio
The Norwegian pianist’s Trio has been one of the huge jazz successes of the modern media age. They’re known all over the world thanks to their huge popularity when people stream “melodic jazz”, “moody jazz”, “beautiful jazz” or use any other adjective that suggests listening to lovely atmospheric music, sometimes wistful, sometimes a little melancholic, but always tuneful, bright, and rooted in emotional feelings.
Its a major coup for the Festival to bring one of the great international bands on today’s scene for our first live show in 18 months!
“The lost art of melodic minimalism, stripped back and beautifully near bare. No smoke and mirrors, just the graceful chemistry of superb musicians” (BBC) “ impeccably performed, full of crisp, beguiling melodies and improvisations that are thoughtful, without neglecting feelings ( Jazz Journal)
