My first big project since Unsongs is starting to take shape. In August, I will present a whole set of only new songs at Telemarkfestivalen, inspired by the year of 1968.
This year marks the 50th anniversary for 1968, the year that changed the history of music and has been called “the most historical year in world history”. I have been challenged by the Norwegian festival Telemarkfestivalen to write a whole concert with inspiration from the politics, music, poetry, art and topics that made 1968 such an important year in so many ways.
There’s more information (in Norwegian) at www.telemarkfestivalen.no.
