Folk Music Center

The Folk Music Centre brings Icelandic folk music to life. People from all over Iceland can be seen singing folk songs, playing traditional instru­ments and performing folk dances.

The Folk Music Center is situated in the house of Rev. Bjarni Thorsteinsson, who’s famous collection of Icelandic folk songs, from the end of the 19th century, was published in 1906.

At the Folk Music Festival in Siglufjord outstanding musicians from Scandinavia, America and other countries are going to perform all sorts of music as well as very talented native musicians. Folk, classical, experimental and jazz music will be played in around 20 concerts all around Siglufjord: in the boat house, the meal factory, Siglufjord Church and in restaurants. This is an important opportunity to get to know Icelandic folk music. Further information on
