Welcome to my website! My name is Terese Lien Evenstad and i’m a violinist, composer and bandleader with a bachelordegree in Jazz Artist and Performing at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. I live in Stockholm and regularly play in and outside the capital with different jazz-constellations. Here you get an insight into my world, my music and me as a musician. On this site you can find information about my next concerts and get updates about my projects.
I mostly play jazz in different bands at various venues around the country. I have performed at Stockholm Jazzfestival, Bangen Jazz & Blues Festival, Herräng dance camp, Fasching and Umeå Jazzfestival among others. I compose music for Terese Lien Evenstad Quartet, do recordings on requests in studio (mostly pop and jazz) and gives lessons in improvisation for string players. Music is the red thread in my life and I play everything from folkmusic to clubmusic but my heart lies with jazz and improvisation.
