Poul Krebs & Henning Kvitnes with band (DK, NO)

Two Scandinavian songwriters backed by an elite band record a new album and give an exclusive release concert at Tønder Festival 2019. Poul Krebs is very productive and has a big following in Denmark, as has Henning Kvitnes in Norway. The two songwriters met up 30 years ago and, whilst pursuing their respective solo careers, have worked and toured together. Now they have made an album, including both new and older material, which will be presented at this year’s Tønder Festival. “Tønder is the ideal festival for us to present this line-up. The record is not a studio album with a producer, but is really close to our live sound,” says Poul Krebs. The band, in the studio and on stage, consists of Palle Hjorth, keys; Rune Kjeldsen, guitar; Troels Skærbæk, bass and Rasmus Valldorf, drums. In the autumn of 2019, Krebs, Kvitnes and the band will tour both Denmark and Norway. In 2018, Henning Kvitnes celebrated his 40 years in music with a long tour and an album, 60 runder rundt sola (60 Circuits of the Sun). Poul Krebs has been touring Denmark with his recent album Maleren and delfinerne i bugten (The Painter and the Porpoises in the Bay.)
