Events for this project:
Pianist Birgit Lindberg receives a culture boost from Umeå2014 to fund her concert project The Midnight Sun… made up of newly written jazz music.

“Of course I want to be part of the European Capital of Culture programme in Umeå. I will present newly written jazz music, inspired by the nature and strong cultural personalities of Västerbotten,” says Birgit Lindberg who receives SEK 20 014 in a cultural boost from Umeå2014 to fund the project.
The project will also involve guitarist Anders Färdal, tenor saxophonist Peter Lindqvist, contrabass player Pepe Berns and perhaps a few guest performers.
