Haftor Medbøe Group has rapidly become a mainstay of the Scottish Music Scene both headlining and supporting visiting artists such as Esbjorn Svensson Trio and Bill Frisell. With roots in Norway, Iceland, Poland and Australia the group brings a fresh and invigorating approach by fusing contemporary sound worlds with strong melodies over driving grooves. Taking inspiration from Scottish bands Mogwaii and Boards of Canada, HMG brings jazz with an edge to a new and eager audience.
