Norwegian Country Singing Band!
It’s not often that you hear a group of Norwegians singing country songs in their own dialect, but that’s exactly what you get when hearing the debut album by Roger Græsberg & Foreningen.
The band is made up of Roger Græsberg (vocal / guitars) Unnveig Aas (vocal / autoharp / electric guitar), Krister Skadsdammen (steel and electric guitars), Alexander Lindbäck (drums) and Tor Ånon Kleivane (bass).
The debut record, ‘Trister Sanger og Vals’ was issued last year and received fine words from the Norwegian press for the band’s presentation of classic and alternative country roots music, which has led to the decision to release the album on CD format this year.
With the official CD release date set for 24th February 2017, all there is left for Roger Græsberg & Foreningen to do is get out on the road and provide the strongest promotion for the upcoming physical album release.
Roger Græsberg & Foreningen will therefore be performing live at the following venues in Norway.
Kongsvinger bibliotek, 12. February
Cafe Mono / Oslo, 16. February
Gregers / Hamar, 17. February (med Signe Marie Rustad)
