We first met Rolf performing alongside Andreas Oberg at the 2008 NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA. A confident and impressive soloist and accompanist, Rolf brings jazz guitar to European audiences with verve and sensitivity. Born 1960 in Gothenburg, Sweden, he picked up the guitar at the age of twelve. In 1977 Jardemark and fellow guitarist Per Hovensjö founded a duo, still active today. He graduated from Gothenburg College of Music in 1985 and has performed throughout Europe with both European and American artists of renown. He appeared with Rune Gustafsson on the nationally televised show “Jazzduellen” (The Jazz Duel) in 1994 and subsequently played the guitar on more than 60 TV shows over the years while working at The Gothenburg Opera House performing as a pit orchestra musician. As an educator, Rolf is currently teaching electric guitar at Västerhöjdsgymnasiets Musiklinje in Skövde, Sweden. He has six albums as leader and another half dozen as a side man.
