Hanne Hukkelberg- LIVE
In The Country - LIVE
“amazing… there’s something magical about it” Four Tet
“an otherworldly quality… while the instrumentation is folky, there is a power here that outmanoeuvres any kook or kitsch. Beautiful” iDJ
“an elegant charm that is very much its own… so compelling” The Wire
Hanne Hukkelberg has been hailed as Norway's most beguling singer/songwriter of recent years. A wonderful artist whose boldly experimental music featuring the likes of pots, pans and bicycle spokes alongside the more traditional drums, accordian, keyboard and guitar has been universally praised for it's inventiveness and almost magical beauty.
Her wholly unique music has won her fans from across the jazz, folk and leftfield electronic scenes and her all too rare live shows in the UK are eagerly anticipated events. Touring to support the release of her new album Rykestrasse 68, we are delighted to welcome Hanne and her band to the intimate, award-winning and much loved Luminaire.
In support we have fellow Norwegians In The Country, a superb piano trio led by composer Morten Qvenild (Jaga Jazzist). Since bursting onto the international scene with Jaga, Morten has gone on to create the brilliant Susanna and the Magical Orchestra and to be a key member of Solveig Slettahjell’s Slow Motion Quintet. In the Country refresh the traditional jazz piano trio with swaggering, youthful style.
