Gunhild Carling

Mainstage Theatre, 216 Union Street, Seattle

Gunhild Carling is an amazing one-of-a-kind Swedish jazz musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer and all-round one-woman band. And then there’s the skit that took her to international fame. On stage one night, Carling reached for a second trumpet while already playing one. And then, a third.

Balancing one trumpet on her arm and holding the other two, Gunhild juggles breath control, intonation and showmanship to pull off an eye-wateringly impressive performance accompanied by the Carling Family jazz band.

Carling is not only a master of the trumpet; she also plays the trombone, bagpipes, recorder, and the banjo, ukulele and harp. And, she can sing!

If you fancy trying to catch her in concert, she is playing our wonderful venue for the second time ever! You will not be disappointed.
