Ivar Grydeland

Ivar Grydeland by © Remi Angeli

is a Norwegian musician chiefly operating within the realm of contemporary improvised music. His main instruments are guitars and pedal steel guitars. Grydeland has toured regularly in Europe, Asia, North- and South America over the last 20 years with his main improvising ensembles Huntsville and Dans les arbres, as well as with the Norwegian artist Hanne Hukkelberg.
He has released about 40 albums with his main groups, solo and other projects on labels like ECM, Hubro, Rune Grammofon and Sofa – a label he started together with Ingar Zach in 1999.
