RHF, which since its inception in 1999 has been successful with their compelling and well-played way of servicing New Orleans revival jazz, is celebrating its 21st birthday in 2020 and as Red Hot Four + 1 / + 2 11 years of interplay. The key to success lies in the fact that a dynamic and well-playing rhythm group pulls in the same direction and lays a good foundation, which the winds know how to build on. And when this interplay is added to the good tune, it thus becomes New Orleans jazz at its best.
With them is the multi-instrumentalist Gunhild Carling, who hardly requires much introduction. Gunhild is almost a fixture at the Riverboat Jazz Festival, where she is always the guarantor of an immensely high musical level and a degree of performance that is completely unique.
