the year 2000 - May 19.

Translation by Dag Sirnes:
Silje Nergaard to Kve°ydagene
Jazz singer Silje Nergaard will be the main attraction during this year's Kve°ya days. She sings in Grendehuset on Kve°ya on 19 August, the newspaper Vesterňlen writes. The Harstad band ''Dr. Ytterstad's band'' will accompany the artist on stage.
It is considered a scoop when the event committee has got the popular jazz artist for its program. The background, however, is that her father comes from Kve°ya, and the event is a golden opportunity for the singer to visit the farm where her father was born.
In the early 90's Nergaard had a career as a pop artist, but has now with the latest album ''Port of Call'' devoted herself entirely to jazz.
