Monica Heldal (N)
    Friday February 17, 2012 9:00pm - 9:30pm @ Herr Nilsen / Østkanten bluesklubb
    Monica Heldal, in spite of her young age (20) managed to garner both domestic and international attention. With her brilliant and technically advanced guitar playing and alluring voice she has left audiences spellbound in all manner of settings. Her deep-seated love of American country-blues and for the deceased Irish singer, guitarist and songwriter Rory Gallagher led to her being invited to play last year’s ”Rory Gallagher International Tribute Festival” in his home town. After many plaudits she was invited back this year and that led to further invitations to play at Nottoden, in Oslo, The Netherlands and France. Monica’s songbook is primarily drawn from her own material but she throws in a couple of covers too. The material is a mix of trad. ragtime and country blues, straight up country and folk. Influences range from the aforementioned Rory Gallagher to Bonnie Raitt, Nick Drake, Chet Atkins, Jackson Browne and Neil Young amongst others.
