Music, Song and Humor

Music, Song and Humor

Join Lakselaget as it kicks off its 2015-2016 awesome and entertaining program with three very talented guys from Stavanger, Norway.

Per Henning Uppstad and Odd Ragnar Waade Ommundsen, a well-known duo in western Norway, represent a new kind of storyteller — the kind that doesn't take cheap shots at others. Rather, they put words and music together to represent the small things in life, occasionally frustrating or absurd and so small that they may be experienced in only fleeting moments, moments to which we all can relate.

Uppstad & Waade are seasoned entertainers, and their humor is deeply rooted in the traditions and peculiarities of everyday life in Norway. Their music is inspired by Leonard Cohen, Paul Simon and James Taylor and their humor by Charlie Chaplin. They truly bridge all generations.

The third member of the dynamic trio is Kjell Inge Torgersen, who combines his extraordinary musicality with playful humor. He's a musician, singer, composer and lyricist.

This is an exceptional opportunity to experience contemporary Norwegian music and lively storytelling. It's a program for all ages. Be sure to bring your friends!
