30 Years ago: First time on national TV
Picture: Still from Siljes first appearance on national TV (NRK) in the recorded program 'Musikk landet rundt',
Hamar jazz trio with Bård Slagsvold (piano) and Johannes Eik (acoustic bass).
The program was broadcasted on 5. December 1983. The still is from the
interview, afterwards the trio performed with Lover Man and Radka.
In the summer of 1983 Siljes national breakthrough in Norway was a fact, after an article in Dagbladet, a Norwegian newspaper,
at the end of July 1983. At that
moment Silje was lead singer in the band HamJam and because of the
national attention for Silje,
HamJam was booked for the famous Kalvøya Festival at the end of August that year.
At the picture above the band HamJam in Hamar in August 1983, Silje mostly hidden behind some guys of the band.
