Dreamcatcher Music teams up with Tromsø-venue Kaia to bring you exciting new concerts. The concept is called “En Trivelig Kveld” and consists of a night of live music from four artists. On each night, one established, well known Norwegian artist will share the stage with three up and coming artists and form a night where you can relive old favourites – as well as discover new ones.
To kick off the collaboration, Dreamcatcher and Kaia invite you to the very first concert Wednesday Dec 11th at 21:00. We are excited to present to you the following bunch of artistic talent:
Ketil Stokkan is a well known name in Norway. Since the 70’es he’s been active in the music business, and has established himself as an accomplished singer and songwriter from the north. Ketil is most famous for being the lead vocalist and composer in the northern Norwegian band ZOO and as the winner of Norwegian Eurovision in 1986 and 1990. Many also know him from the blues/rock trio “Stokkan”, a bandproject that released the album “To The Bone” in 1994. Since 1978 Ketil Stokkan has released 12 albums, with unforgettable hits like ”Vent, ikkje legg på”, ”Evig Ung”, ”Romeo” and Brandenburger Tor” and many, many more.
At Dreamcatcher, you can see Ketil Stokkan in an unusually stripped and acoustic setting, presenting his songs intimately and personally. This is an opportunity not to be missed!
The colourful centre stage of the local band “Hjerterå” has quickly become noticed in the local music-community as a talented and capable singer, musician, composer and lyricist. With a keen eye, unique vocals and an eerie ability to capture the lives of the less fortunate and lonely in musical form, Hjerterå has become a phenomena that is about to redefine the norwegian folkrock-genre. As a solo-artist, Aarsten has, among other projects, recently played to sold out capacity during the Barents Jazz-festival – with his project “Dylan på Norsk”, and when he takes to the stage at Kaia, you can be there again to enjoy a mix of songs from Aarsteins projects.
Kaaven is a young sibling-trio from Tromsø. On the Dreamcatcher-stage you can hear them perform self-composed folk-songs in northern Norwegian, spiced up with some flamenco-inspired guitarplay and international subtones. They are a well kept secret in Tromsø, and well worth getting to know better.
Singersongwriter Vilde-Alida from Tromsø is a focused young artist with a message. Despite her young age she has gathered a fair share of experience with songwriting and performing – quite simply because she’s always known that she was born to be an artist. Come see her at Kaia – This is an artist you will hear from for many years to come.
