Øyvind Rønning has written about music since he was 15 years old, the last 32 years as a journalist and music critic in the daily newspaper Dagbladet.
He has held various roles during Dark Season Blues since 2006, and in recent years has interviewed festival artists from the stage. Among previous interviewees are Super Chikan, Reiersrud, Vidar Busk, Amund Maarud, Reidar Larsen, Sven Zetterberg, Mike Zito and Stan Webb.
As last year, there will be a “blues bath” both Friday (Svalbar) and Saturday (Kroa) during the blues luncheon.
