GT-Sara turned 96 years old, the popular artist died on Saturday 14.11. – NRK Innlandet – Local news, TV and radio


It was Hamar Arbeiderblad who could first announce that the popular artist, GT-Sara, is dead.

According to the newspaper, she died at Kongsvinger hospital, where she was admitted after a fall.

Gerd Miriam Thoreid, who was born in Hamar on September 17, 1924, turned 96 years old.


The popular artist was known for creating both warmth and laughter with singing and guitar playing. She was also a storyteller of rank. Often the stories were often of the rough kind, despite the fact that she never hid her strong relationship with God.

The name GT-Sara was given to her by Dag Frøland after she participated in the radio program “Har du lyst har du lov”, where she sang “Vill ni se en stjärna”.

The artist name gave itself, Frøland thought, since Gerd was always on the go and she had the initials GT (Gerd Thoreid).

Many TV appearances

GT-Sara made her first TV appearance in 1975, but it was far from the last.

She is also considered Norway’s oldest record debutant of all time. In 2007, when she was 83 years old, she released the album “GT-Sara on the go with Full Roll”. The album was on the VG list for a long time. The song “Balloonvisa” also went all the way to the top of Norsktoppen, where it was on the list for six weeks.

Will be missed

One of many who had a close relationship with the artist is the mayor of Gjøvik, Torvild Sveen. He started arranging so-called “Ljugerkvelder” at Biri 20 years ago, and GT-Sara was a guest on the show several times.

– There is no one who has managed to create as much gap laughter in the room as GT-Sara did, Sveen says.

He describes Gerd Miriam as a fantastic lady.

– There are not that many stand-up comedians who break through when they are over 70 years old. She had a being that invited both trust and security, says the Gjøvik mayor.

Sveen thinks it was sad to receive the news of GT-Sara’s death.

– It is simply a national icon that has disappeared, says Sveen.
