In the Crossroads of Blues and Jazz

Uffe Steen and Peter Vuust belong to the absolute Danish jazz elite and will be performing together with the talented drummer Mikkel Vuust at Tir na nÓg.

They will play a number of melodic and well-swinging songs, where the music moves at the crossroads of blues and jazz. The tempo ranges from fast and furious to more quiet and beautiful ballads.

Throughout his long career, he has played with a large number of renowned jazz and blues acts. He is known for his sensitive and captivating playing and has achieved international recognition with his CDs with, among others, Adam Nussbaum on drums. 

Peter Vuust is a professor at Aarhus University and the Royal Academy of Music and head of the Center for Music in the Brain. He has played on more than 100 records and with international jazz stars such as Tim Hagans, Mal Waldron, Ted Curson, and Jukkis Uotila.
