Knut Reiersrud Band

With a new album in the bag

As one of Norway's most versatile and ingenious guitarists - whether it's groovy blues, beautiful folk tunes or hymns - Knut Reiersrud never seems to run out of ideas.

Now he is on the road with a bunch of new songs where he has tried to portray the personality of various animals through instrumental music. Among other things, we get to meet "Havnesjefen", which pays homage through twangy surf-prog, "Freya" is majestically sentimental, while "Hvaldimir" is an uplifting pop gem. In addition, quite a few other well-known and forgotten animals get their rightful place in the repertoire.

Groovy and fierce guitar-based jazz, rock, r'n'b and funk from a legend in the game!
