Thanks to Nasjonal jazzscene we have a couple of amazing sets for this version of the Guitar Moderne Festival. One, a new set from the amazing duo of Stian Westerhus and Sidsel Endresen, and a second from the Hedvig Mollestad Trio. Add full concerts from from Ava Mendoza, Marc Ribot and Fred Frith and you have a great way to end the summer.

Guitar Moderne Festival VII

Summer is Festival time. The United States offers huge gatherings featuring classic rock acts cashing in on their legacy, hip bands doing reunion tours featuring their one record that sold, baby bands that may or may not last a year and other pop ephemera.  Meanwhile, over in Europe, American jazz artists tour festivals in super groups that could never afford to play together back home, making their rent for the year.

Here at Guitar Moderne we offer a virtual festival: no camping, no porta-potties, no stifling heat or mud. Just the enjoyment of the best in modern guitar in the comfort of your own home. Enjoy.
