Monica Heldal (22) will release her debut album later this fall, but she’s an experienced live artist and have been an artist to look out for a couple of years now. We saw her last year at Bergenfest (the photos are from that show) and we were impressed. She is a very skilled guitar player and she sings with feeling. Check out her music on Youtube and buy her album later this year!
From her Facebook page:
Monica Heldal, in spite of her young age (21) 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 Notodden, in Oslo, The Netherlands and France.
We have chosen a fine rendition of Bob Dylan’s Boots of Spanish Leather as our Video of the day, enjoy!
Boots of Spanish leather (Dylan) – Monica Heldal (Video Directed by Lee Mangan):
- DVD Release Date: April 19, 2011
- Run Time: 105 minutes
|Had anyone suggested during the 1980s that Bob Dylan would re-invent himself yet again during the decades that followed, to once more become the music-world’s most respected artist, while achieving number one albums along the way, they may well have been met with a wry smile, if not outright derision. But somehow Dylan pulled it off and after a lengthy period of lacklustre music and performances he again became the most important icon of the rock age. This documentary film follows the career and music of Bob Dylan from the aftermath of his stunning 1989 comeback album Oh Mercy and follows his story up to 2006’s masterpiece, Modern Times. Featuring a wealth of archive material, performance footage, exclusive and classic interviews, contributions from many close confidantes plus writers and Dylan experts Johnny Rogan, Derek Barker, Clinton Heylin and Nigel Williamson, along with location film, news reports and some of the finest music recorded during the last 20 years.
