Thomas Arnesen

For more than four decades, Thomas has been an established guitar player in a variety of settings, touring and recording with different artists, bands and his own projects. As he says himself, it’s the blues that is his favorite music, and it is as a blues guitarist that I know him best.

I first heard him with Kjell Öhman Organ Grinders, which were among the first records I listened to when I began to play the organ. About 14 years ago he asked me to join a blues band he was starting, and this was the beginning of a great musical cooperation and friendship. Arnesen Bluesband is still playing and I’m very happy about that. After all these years he can still surprise and amaze me and just blow me away!
