Hayden Powell Trio spent this weekend in Bergen where we took part in an international showcase called Nutshell. We were given the opportunity to perform in front of festival representatives, journalists and jazz business people from all over Europe and beyond. We were lucky enough to be given a slot in beautiful surroundings on top of a mountain (although indoors) with paragliders taking off next to us. We shared the bill with Erlend Apneseth, a brilliant young harbinger fiddle-player from Jølster, who also played a great set together with Stephan Meidell and Øyvind Hegg-Lunde (who I play with in 12 Percent). We’ve already have interest from several clubs and festivals so thank you Vestnorsk Jazzsenter for giving us this opportunity!
