Music celebration

This coming weekend, May 20– 21, Háaloftið will be hosting a large music celebration.  Alongside this various restaurants in Vestmannaeyjar will be offering special three course menus and museums will also be hosting some musical events.

Restaurants will be offering their menus from Thursday to Sunday evening, so hopefully some islanders and visitors will be able to avail of this and take part in the celebration. 

On Friday evening Biggi Nielsen will hold his second concert promotional concert for this newly released album Svartur 2. His previous concert was fully booked.  His music is a mixture of funk and jazz and he will have some of the country‘s best musicians playing alongside him.

On Saturday evening there will be more jazz and blues, when Pálmi Gunnarsson takes the stage with his band Tusk.  We stongly suspect that his special guest will be none other that the great Magnús Eiríksson and hopefully some of Biggi‘s guest musicians will also take the stage.   The weekend wil be one big jazz, blues, funk and jam session and hopefully some of Biggi‘s guest musicians will also take the stage.  

All in all we can promise you a fantastic weekend program and a true music celebration.
