AMONGST BIRD CLIFFS AND SEA PUFFINS!

2 Mar

 

Mykinesbygden is the name of the only little village on Mykines, Only 19 people live on the island all year round, but during the summertime quite some tourists are visiting the island.

During the days 9th to 16th of July 2017, Jensen & Bugge + Høirup will be touring Faroe Islands.

We will be performing a number of shows in connection with the local folk festival “Fólkatónleikastevnan”, which will be “traveling” around the islands.

We will be visiting the small enchanted island of Mykines, and at Fugløy, another small island. We will also perform at Nordens Hus (The Nordic House), and at restaurant Kvonn, both in Tórshavn, the capitol of the islands. Then we finish up at G! Festival in Göta, where the wonderful Faroese singer, Eivør, was born.

I have been to Faroe Islands quite a few times during the years, and it has always been a fantastic experience to visit. First time I was there was in the middle of the nineties, and later I visited the islands once with the violin and guitar duo, Haugaard & Høirup, and several times with the folk-world band Himmerland.

I love Faroe Islands. There you’ll meet the most lovely people, a wonderful nature, and absolute fabulous food tradition, and an exciting coltural life all in all – and further more Tórshavn serve the best fish ‘n chips in the world!

You’ll find a video from Faroe Islands here! The music on this video is made by Eivør!
