Hayde Bluegrass Orchestra
5th November 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm£20
Oslo-based Hayde Bluegrass Orchestra was founded after a few of the future band members watched
the Oscar-nominated Belgian movie “Broken Circle Breakdown”. They quickly persuaded a friend to
acquire a double bass to join a bluegrass band that didn’t exist – yet.
Initially, the band started to rehearse and play the music from the movie. One of the first songs they
recorded was “Wayfaring Stranger”. It quickly racked up hundreds of thousands of plays on Youtube,
and introduced Hayde to a large audience. By 2020, they have surpassed 5 million plays on Youtube,
and their channel has 30000 subscribers. Not bad for a band from Oslo, Norway who released their
debut album in March this year.
And the record has been well received so far, with the album debuting at #4 on the official Billboard
Bluegrass chart. An amazing feat for a new and fairly unknown Norwegian band, diving into the most
American genre you could find – Bluegrass.
