Mikkel Ploug

"Guitarist Mikkel Ploug's star has been ascending—not only in his native Denmark, but also in international jazz circles."

– All About Jazz

Danish guitarist Mikkel Ploug has that rarest of jazz commodities, a working band, and this fourth extensive tour brings this stellar quartet to Denmark, Sweden, Spain and Ireland.

With a brace of recordings under his belt for Barcelona's Fresh Sounds, the label that is an ever reliable bellwether of emerging jazz talent worldwide, this supple and inventive player and composer is growing in creative stature. Mikkel received his master from the royal conservatory of the hague in 2005 and was awarded a distinction for his original compositions. Mikkel originally started out on drums at the age of four before changing to guitar at twelve. His lines, have an amorphous harmonic quality about them, even when he plays faster, due to the overlap.

Danish guitarist and composer Mikkel Ploug (b.1978) has performed all over Europe, Brazil and the US with his bands Mikkel Ploug Group and Equilibrium. He has recorded three albums for Spanish label “Fresh Sounds New Talent” and three for canadian label Songlines Recordings. Mikkel works as a sideman in Sean Carpio’s Wowos and for NYC alto player Pete Robbins Transatlantic and has appeared as an opening act for Wayne Shorter. Mikkel has lived in Berlin, but now resides in Copenhagen.




“Mikkel Ploug has been slowly, but surely, building a reputation for himself, and deservedly so. His live performances speak for themselves”

– Jerry D’Souza – All About Jazz
