Silje to Urijazz

Tønsberg: Wednesday night Silje Nergaard and her band play in Tønsberg. Not at the fair, but at Brygga Restaurant, and with Urijazz as organizer. Urijazz suggests that this is the spring season's biggest event.

Silje Nergaard is originally from Hamar, and despite her young age, she has been an established singer, musician and songwriter for several years. She has had success in Japan where she topped Japan's J-Wave chart with "Tell me where you're going" in 1990, and the same song was on the UK Top 100 chart in the UK for 15 weeks. She has also recorded a record with both the world-renowned guitarist Pat Metheny.

Silje's songs vary between jazz, pop, rock and a bit of country and the lyrics can be both cheerful and melancholic. Silje brings Kåre Vestrheim (keyboard & accordion), Anders Engen (drums), Nils Einar Vinjor (guitar) and Gjermund Silseth (bass) to Brygga. In addition to singing, Silje plays keyboard and guitar.
