Lage Lund

The Checkout Live at Berklee kicks off its new season with guitarist Lage Lund. Watch him showcase all new compositions during this intimate performance — working with drummer Johnathan Blake, with whom he has played with for over a decade, and bassist Jared Henderson, a new member of his trio.


Henderson came recommended by his former teacher, Ben Street, who also mentored Lund at the Berklee College of Music. Lund, who originally hails from Norway and is now based in New York, graduated from Berklee in 2000. This special Checkout Live podcast and performance was captured at Cafe 939's Red Room in Boston.
