Silje sings Prøysen

Hamar girl Silje Nergaard will be the main attraction at the Prøysen party in Brumunddal on Saturday. Silje will sing "Så seiler vi på Mjøsa''.

John Arne Holmlund

NRK Petre (P3) is in Brumunddal with its popular radio program Transit, which goes live on the radio every Saturday from 12.00 - 16.00. On Saturday, 250,000 listeners across the country will take part in a four-hour program from "Prøysen Land".

The occasion is the release of the 'rocky' Prøysen CD "Med Blanke Ark" (With Blanc Sheeets), which is on the market on Monday 3 October.


Silje Nergaard is one of many pop and rock artists who interpret Alf Prøysen's songs in her own special way on the CD.

The Hamar singer contributes with ''Så seile vi på Mjøsa'' (Then we sail on Lake Mjøsa). Silje Nergaard is in place in the town square in Brumunddal with her acoustic three-man orchestra and performing songs for the audience and for Petre's radio listeners. This takes place at 13.00 from Petre's own stage outside the Mega building.

Own concert

An hour later, the cultural office in Ringsaker municipality will have Silje Nergaard to hold a mini-concert from the municipality's own stage between (the shops) Intersport and Brumunddal Bok- og Papir-handel. She will sing some of her own songs as well as some by Alf Prøysen.

The culture office and Petre did not succeed in getting the Trondheim trio Tre Små Kinesere to Brumunddal. ''The Chinese'' participate on the CD with ''Blåklokkevikua''.
