Hedvig Mollestad Trio to venture into hardrock riffery and experimental free jazz territory at Roadburn 2017

In keeping with the fine tradition of bringing you Norway‘s experimental and otherworldly music experiences, we’re excited to report that the vividly praised Hedvig Mollestad Trio will play Roadburn 2017 on Friday, April 21 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Firmly touching on genre-blurring hardrock and metal riffery as well as the noisier realms of jazz improvisation, guitarist and composer Hedvig Mollestad and her own trio gather massive heaps of respect from both the hardrock and jazz scenes internationally.

Listening to albums such as All of Them Witches, Enfant Terrible and Black Stabat Mater showcases a band that has gone from strength to strength, and one lead by a very accomplished guitarist; Mollestad has been compared to the likes of Tony Iommi and Jimi Hendrix, but she doesn’t shy away from John McLaughlin or Larry Coryell either.

Together with bassist Ellen Brekken and drummer Ivar Joe Bjørnstad, Mollestad ventures easily into more free and open landscapes juxtaposed to Hendrix-ian blues, Sabbath-heaviness, or doomy improvisation – think Sunn o))) by way of Terje Rypdal.

If you want your hardrock and metal, jazz or noise by the book, than Hedvig Mollestad Trio is not for you. If you’re craving a very high level of musicianship and a perfect balance between freedom, discipline, and explosive rock dynamics however, your search is over, plain and simple!

Roadburn Festival 2017 will take place April 20-23 at the 013 venue, Tilburg, The Netherlands. Tickets are now on sale!
