Friday night at Bar Teatral in Karlstad, lots of good beer and live performances by Monte Nour and Jennie Abrahamson. Monte Nour was first out and a whole new acquaintance, feeling unsure of what I liked about his music, probably needs to listen more to grasp it.
Jennie, on the other hand, I'm absolutely sure! Great as usual! It's the first time I experience her alive and was not disappointed. She started with - To the water! A song about fanaticism of all sorts - and unfortunately very current in our time…
The first time I saw Jennie was on television. A lonely girl with some instruments and a very unbelievable vocal voice. She played her Snowstorm! On Friday I heard it again. Still loving it.
Jennie is sometimes compared with Kate Bush, something she herself, for many years did not really agree with. We received a long story before she performed - Running up that hill, as a tribute to Kate Bush. The song was taken from a tribute concert she performed together with Gothenburg Symphony.
In Sweden, Jennie is not particularly famous ... strange! But it seems to be a girl who wants to decide most of herself, not so commercial, independent. I like that! However, she has made 5 world tours with Peter Gabriel. Not so bad. Not bad at all!
