Blues festival - Blús milli fjalls og fjöru

Dear blues lovers

The preparation of the next blues festival is in its final stages after a very special winter. All answer regarding next blues festival have been speculative at best. Now we can happily announce that the blues festival will be held in Patreksfjörður in a similar format as in previous years, bands are booked and now the promotional period begins. At eventful and rather modest, (for obvious reasons) still a fun fisherman's holliday, it is time to inform about the artists and bands performing at Blues between mountain and tide this year.

On Friday, August 28, there will be two bands, Beggi Smári and band with Nick Jameson onboard. Nick is a musician, an actor and an entertainer, to name a few, from Missouri, USA. He played with Paul Butterfield blues band, warmed up for Muddy Waters, starred in many films and TV shows. Nick is going to entertain us with great guitar playing, singing and joking along with Beggi Smári and the band. The same evening, Björn Thoroddsen and Unnur Birna Björnsdóttir will be joined by their band-mates. Everyone knows Björn, the a proud Patreksfjörður native. Björn is a super talented local ledgend and career and Unnur Birna violinist and singer with an angelic voice. They will have blues and something else on their repertoire. t will be interesting to listen and hear how blues sounds on the violin. Unnur Birna toured with Jethro Tull last year, which speaks volumes about her talent. On Saturday,

August 29, we are proud to welcome Bluestrio Eric Hanson, from Sweden. This trio is one of Sweden's most popular blues bands. Next on the stage will be a magnificent rock blues band put together by Óskar Logi Ágústsson, the of guitarist The Vingent Caravan, assembled especially for this festival. Among the band members is Magnús Jóhann Ragnarsson, a keyboard player who has attracted much attention for his skills on the instrument. Expect great ambiance, great entertainment, merriment and world class blues -something for everyone.
