Ösp Eldjárn – Picnic Concerts


Ösp Eldjárn grew up in a valley in North of Iceland with her musical family. In her music, Ösp carries with her a fine Icelandic singing tradition of glacial beauty and real emotional power. Capable of both the epic and the intimate she’s possessed of beautifully evocative voice and is backed by a keenly sympathetic band. Her album Tales from a Popular Tree was nominated for the Icelandic Music Awards in the folk music genre.

The Nordic House opens the glass doors and invites you to concerts under the luminous Icelandic sky every Sunday afternoon during the summer in our beautiful greenhouse. The Picnic Concert Series presents award winning Icelandic and international artists with music inspired by tradition or experimenting with the newest genres and tendencies.

The concerts are free and open for all!

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