We round of our autumn campaign with a night of fantastic music, warm hugs and happy times in general! The event will be held at Texas (the train station at Ås), and it will be FREEEEE! :D
Bring all your friends!
Snusker Du formed nearly spontaneously when Josh Cabell (mandolin, vocals) and Andrew Larsen (bass, vocals) met Sjur Tobiassen (guitar, vocals) at one of his shows in Ski. Blake Wergeland (drums) was in the audience that night. The four came together almost immediately and were playing out a week later. The band is made up of three international MSc students from the U.S., studying at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, and one native Norwegian, who teaches music during the day.
Sjur, who sings and plays guitar has been in various bands as well as played as a solo "troubador" for many years around Norway. Josh has played in acoustic bands in the U.S., and most recently, in one as far afield as Morocco. Andrew played all over the western U.S. for 11 years in various acoustic bands and has worked with some of the great folk and bluegrass musicians from Nashville to Telluride. Blake was a founding member of The Plaigarists, a mainstay on the Minneapolis indie-rock scene which went on to tour the U.S., with radio play on college music stations, as a signed recording act for Afternoon Records.
But as Snusker Du, the four come together and play rock and roll covers, new originals, and whatever seems to appear in front of them. They all enjoy seeing perfect strangers come together in the language of music. It's fun for them, and they think it's fun for their audiences--from what they can tell from their places on the stage!
Check out their MySpace page, which has audio and video clips available to get a sample of what they do.

Størstedelen av landet Vest-Sahara har vært okkupert av Marokko siden 1975. Siden da har flertallet av befolkningen bodd i flyktningleirer i Algerie. De som ble igjen i hjemlandet utsettes for alvorlige overgrep fra marokkanske okkupasjonsmyndigheter. I over 40 år har de ventet på at deres rett til selvbestemmelse skal innfris.
