2018 marks 25 years since Robert Jürjendal, Tõnis Leemets & Mart Soo first started making music together as Weekend Guitar Trio. To celebrate, the group will be doing a series of birthday concerts around Estonia:
16th of January in Viljandi Jazz Club. Tickets available through Piletilevi.
“The Weekend Guitar Triois a real mystery. […] The trio plays a very own sophisticated form of ambient music that has been deepened and expanded impressively over the years and still sounds fresh as its concert convincingly testified. Already a household name in Europe they deserve to be programmed more by music/jazz festival just because it is one of the rare configurations where the focus is for 100% on the music.”
