Friday 9. Dec, 20:00 -
Kafe ÅTTE, Kongsberg
This Friday in December, Vegard Eggum welcomes ÅTTE with a solo concert at eight o'clock!
Eggum is a guitarist and vocalist from Kongsberg, who on a daily basis works as a music teacher at "Norden's only metal line" at Buskerud Folk High School, in addition to running one of Kongsberg's few record labels.
Vegard has been seen on stage with Meadows & io, Ulf Myrvold, Sightseers and with the solo project As the tired trains cross Europe (ATTTCE).
The solo album Lucid Moments (2015) garnered good reviews at home and abroad, and music journalist Egon Holstad included one of the songs in the playlist of the 100 best songs of the last decade.
At ÅTTE, he performs alone with the guitar and will mainly perform his own songs, but if we are to believe the rumours, there may be the occasional surprise in the form of new and old rarities.

"Even though Eggum is obviously a very talented musician, and that he masters so many different instruments, I feel that his real strength lies in conveying what he wants to convey. That he drags his soul with him into what he does.”
“Vegard sounds uncannily like David Bowie. Everyone they say, has a doppleganger. The Thin White Duke's is Vegard Eggum.”
