I was at the concert at Odin´s Pub, and it was exactly how a blues concert should be. In an overcrowded little pub with locals in good mood.

Busk grew up in Langesund, but went to USA when 15 years old, to play with the American blues artist Rock Bottom. He toured the U.S. several years before returning to Norway in 1990, and was awarded Smugetprisen 1994. Later he was awarded two times Spellemannprisen, as This year’s artist in 1998 and in the blues/country class in 2003.

Busk played at Moldejazz 2011, 16 years after the formation of His True Believers.
