Jazz that bridges musical worlds

She had her real breakthrough almost 30 years ago in the jazz/rock band Frontline, became a must-have in every record collection with the pop/rock group OneTwo and later returned to jazz, where she has achieved great recognition.
Cæcilie Norby constantly builds bridges with her music: She attracts fans of both classical music, jazz and pop as well as everyone else who loves a good tune.
Together with Hess/Vuust/Vuust Trio - Nikolaj Hess (piano), Peter Vuust (bass) and Mikkel Vuust (drums) – she will perform a show with jazz at the very highest level at Tir Na Nóg.

In addition, he has been extremely active on the record and concert front with Nikolaj Hess Trio, Hessismore, Hess/Skou and Caroline Henderson. Over time, he has played with names like Lee Konitz, Benny Golson and Etta Cameron.
Peter Vuust is a professor at Aarhus University and the Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus/Aalborg, head of the Center for Music in the Brain and, additionally, one of the country's busiest sidemen.
He has been featured on more than 90 records and with international jazz stars such as Tim Hagans, Mal Waldron, Ted Curson and Jukkis Uotila.
