Swedish musical sensation and internationally acclaimed superstar, Gunhild Carling, is a can't-miss event! She sings, tap dances, juggles and plays virtually every instrument around, often playing three trumpets at the same time…is there anything she can’t do? With heavy influences from Bix and Louie Armstrong as well as Billie Holiday, Carling is a jazz artist of the old breed, combining extraordinary skills with vaudeville stunts. She has been featured on Scott Bradlee's Post Modern Jukebox putting a twenties twist on the eighties tunes "Material Girl," "Never Gonna Give You Up," and "Happy." A recent video of her playing bagpipes went viral with over 15 million views.
