on the train

Posted by PaulKirby on Sunday, March 15, 2009

The Norwegian Opera Chorus had a concert in Bergen Norway last monday night. We had a great time. One of the publicity features of the tour was that we played a few times on the train as it went over the mountains between Oslo and Bergen. You can see the news report here.

After the concert in Grieghallen in Bergen, we went to a little club and played at an open mic. I told the bass player that we were surely going to bomb with the audience because they were all depressed 20-year-olds listening to some really limp minimalist pop. We were supposed to play two tunes and ended up playing 10, and then came back and played until the place closed. Hurray for bluegrass!

How marvellous,You just never can tell with depressed twenty year old norwegians can you? The old banjo must have cheered them up. Anyway I might see you soon mate as we are heading to Europe tonight!! Not sure when we in Norway, but I'l let you know. Nice new avatar pic by the way, you actually look quite respectable.

cool. a banjo in the Norwegian Opera Chorus...

I never really liked this song, but I like this. Guess I'll have to go back to work on it. It has a nice bounce.
