A Band on Stage – Picnic Concerts

The Nordic House opens the glass doors and invites you to concerts under the luminous Icelandic sky every Sunday afternoon (3 PM) during the summer in our beautiful greenhouse. The Picnic Concert Series presents Icelandic and Nordic artists with music inspired by tradition or experimenting with the newest genres and tendencies. The concerts are free and open for all! 

A band on stage was formed in 2006. The band plays quiet and dramatic songs by Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Cornelis Vreeswijk and others. The singer of the band, Sara Blandon, received the award as Newcomer of the year in the jazz category at the Icelandic Music Prize in 2016. The band has played a lot in different locations in Reykjavik and its vicinity recently. 

You can buy coffee, cake, food or drinks in Aalto Bistro to take out or enjoy afterwards in the iconic rooms of Alvar Aalto.
