Ragnheiður Gröndal (vocals & piano) and Guðmundur Pétursson (guitar) have long studied the Icelandic folk music tradition, that appears in the oldest literary tradition of Europe, coming from the cold and isolated island in the far north. At the same time, they deal with a musical tradition that is mostly lost and where very few rules have been written. This creates artistic freedom and opens doors for personal expression and invention. The music they play at the Nordic House summer concert series will be a mix of original material, new material and traditional Icelandic folk songs.
The Nordic House Concert Series is in its third summer, and as always, our guests can expect a varied program with interesting musicians. This year we present no fewer than four acts from the other Nordic countries together with six Icelandic acts. The concert series has something for everyone; folk music, jazz, classical, and pop.
The series takes place on Wednesdays at 21:00 from 12th of June – 14th of August. The entry is only 3.000 kr. or 2.000 kr. for students and senior citizens.
AALTO Bistro in the Nordic House is open for dinner guests before the concert and offers a delicious dinner menu and light meals, all made with first-class ingredients. Book a table
