An 8 part digital concert series featuring musical meetings between guitarist Steinar Aadnekvam and invited guest artists. Recorded in south Stockholm during the summer of 2021.
“Their music is both complex and joyful, full of passion and energy. They have a natural synergy which can be rare, especially when the musicians are so accomplished individually. People should hear FREEDOM TREE – gives you hope!” says legendary guitarist Robben Ford about this band – a multicultural trinity incorporating vast parts of the western hemisphere with each of the three members arguably representing each their own continent, culturally and geographically.
Founded in 2015 this band has performed hundreds of feature concerts in clubs and festival halls touring across Europe, USA, Africa and Eurasia until the break of 2020. Formerly known as “Freedom’s Trio” the band returns as FREEDOM TREE in the fall of 2021 with the critically acclaimed ‘live’ album & film “MODERN ACOUSTIC WORLD JAZZ ROCK”.
