Not since February
1993 I've heard an acoustic concert by Lars HUG, so it was a nice
experience to listen to this unique Danish artist giving a 20-song acoustic/semi-acoustic
concert in Arken.
He started with a brief 3-song acoustic solo
set before the guitarist, Rolf Hansen, and the percussionist,
Anders Stochholm, entered the stage.
I was allowed to make photographs
during the first 10 minutes, so most of the pictures below are made very fast
in a row. The pics at the bottom are made during the closing applause, though.
HUG is an excellent performer, changing his set list at each concert,
just like Bob Dylan use to. Behind his cool image, you can feel
a very sensitive and serious artist.
Rolf is a brilliant guitarist
and he also gave one of his own songs, New Start, which gave a foretaste
of a - hopefully - coming solo album:
We got almost all the loved songs
from Lars HUG's back catalogue in very nice and laid-back versions.
