Aunt Mary | 8:00 PM
Few Norwegian bands have achieved such international recognition as Aunt Mary. They were stars on the Scandinavian heavy and prog rock scene back in the 70s and compared with giants like Deep Purple, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Yes, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, Ten Years After and King Crimson.

Present members:

Bjørn Kristiansen - Guitar player and main songwriter Bjørn Kristiansen was one of the founders of Aunt Mary back in the late 60s. He is regarded one of Scandinavia’s finest rock guitarists and has written many of the bands greatest songs. Bjørn has been with Aunt Mary all this years, while also pursuing an extensive career as a solo artist, with other bands and projects and as a highly respected session musician. He is now the only remaining member of the original line-up.

Bernt Bodal - Bassist Bernt Bodal has been a long-time prog rock colleague of Bjørn since the early 1970s. Bernt is also a founding member of the band HØST and he continues to tour with them. Simultaneously he has managed to keep his bass playing skills on a very high level, playing with many of the international rock scene’s biggest stars. Bernt is one of the driving forces behind Aunt Mary’s comeback in 2016.

Morten Fredheim - The vocalist of Aunt Mary is an outstanding singer with a dashing stage presence also known from The Voice Norway. With over 20 yrs experience he has also collaborated with other well known bands in Norway, Hayseed & Himora to name a few.
