2014 was a good year! Myself and my family are well and healthy, and I have had the privilege of working with good people on exciting projects, not least in ROSA (Danish Rock Council).

Incidentally, I currently play in several bands that release records and travel across large parts of the world, and I am also very happy to be able to be active on the board of DJBFA, Denmark's largest composers association, which works purposefully to strengthen Danish composers and songwriters terms. Finally, as part of my work at ROSA, I am the editor of the online radio station, which broadcasts roots and folk music around the clock. Together, these tasks make for a busy and exciting everyday life, for which I am very grateful!

I am very much looking forward to the new year as, among other things, will include travels and tours with my bands, Himmerland, Lydom, Bugge & Høirup, and Jensen & Bugge + Høirup. My work as a musician and composer brings me in 2015 to the Faroe Islands and to Denmark, Germany, Finland, Great Britain, the USA and Australia. The new year also offers several CD releases, intense work on strategy and member care in DJBFA, and lots of radio work, so it should be a challenging, intensive and fruitful year.

I hereby wish friends, colleagues and partners a very Merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year. I look forward to meeting you on our way!
