Solo jazz guitar

Earlier this summer i recorded a solo version of "On a slowboat to china". I have been working on playing completely solo for a few yaers. I made a living playing this style for half a year in the south of France. I was playing everywhere possible; in the streets, bars, restaurants, private parties, exhibitions etc. Fun, challeging and lots of hard work!

"
Grøn fest
For tredje år i træk indtager kulturentrepenørerne Shock og folkene bag Christianshavns Beboerhus Dronningensgade for at fejre grønne værdier.
Blandt andet er der besøg fra Fresh, kendt som 'Københavns guerilla gardening-aktivister', der vil instruere i frøbombe-produktion. Alle gæster opfordres også til at medbringe en plante.
Af musikalske oplevelser kommer dj-kollektivet Pladevennerne, Cheff Records-drengen Sukker Lyn og hovednavnet Copia Doble Systema, der leverede en kæmpefest på Skatescenen på årets Roskilde Festival.
