NEW ARTIST TO JAZZFEST!Tickets
Patti Austin sings Ella Fitzgerald
w/ Trøndelag Big Band
Patti Austin, born in 1950 in New York, is a vocalist who moves between R&B and jazz. With Quincy Jones and Dinah Washington as musical guiding stars, she started her career at the age of four. She has been a prominent artist since the 1960s and 20 years later came the hit "Do you love me?".
Trøndelag Big Band was established in 2011 and has for over 10 years held concerts at an international level. We are really looking forward to hearing the tribute to Ella Fitzgerald together with the superstar Patti Austin.

Hovedøen Social Club
For over 12 years, Hovedøen Social Club has fused rhythms from Havana with older Norwegian pop gems, and the result has been surprising and danceable Cuban versions of Norwegian hits. The band was formed in 2007 and really broke through then "¡Que viva Noruega!" came, in the summer of 2008. In the spring of 2009 came the sequel «¡Ay caramba!». The concert collaboration with KORK was a great success and "Classics a la Cuba" is regularly played on TV stations in Latin America.

Eirik Havnes/Lars Ove Fossheim
"Alt som lever skal dø" (Everything that lives shall die) is a text-based work that addresses the place of man in nature, and the place of nature in man. Is man still a part of nature, or have we taken the step out of it and rather taken a position as trustee of nature? This and a number of other existential questions are the core content of this innovative work.
