Gard Nilssen's Acoustic Unity (NO)

Free admission

If you ask the names of the most prominent and sought after jazz- and improvised music drummers in Norway, you can be sure to find Gard Nilssen on that list. Anywhere you turn, he’s there, either as a sideman (Team Hegdal, Cortex, Lord Kelvin, Trondheim Jazz Orchestra or Susanne Sundfør) or leading and co-leading a good number of acclaimed groups (Bushman’s Revenge, Puma, sPacemoNkey or Astro Sonic), some going to the absolute frontier territories of jazz, rock and electric experimentalism. With the triple liverelease “Live In Europe” he continues his work entirely committed to unplugged music; Gard Nilssen ́s Acoustic Unity.
Since the Grammy nominated and critically acclaimed debut album “Firehouse” in 2015, they have been touring all around the world: Japan, USA, Canada, Portugal, Germany, Austria, Holland, UK, Denmark, Slovenia and Norway, and developed a more personal and distinct expression with telepathic interplay, big ears, impulsive and energetic sound.
