In English

Eivør Pálsdóttir, vocal

Eivør is a singer-songwriter who grew up in the little village Gøta. Eivør has a very distinct voice and while her roots are in traditional Faroese ballads, she has an interest in a wide range of music genres, from rock, jazz, folk, pop, to European classical music. At the age of 16, she left school in order to dedicate all of her time to what she loved doing: singing and writing music. Eleven years, eight solo albums and numerous awards later, she has become one of the brightest stars on the North Atlantic horizon. What makes her so special is not just her breath-taking voice, but the fact that her artistic abilities are expressed on canvas, in storytelling, poetry and composition. All this creative energy is reflected in a spellbinding presence and performance on stage, which has the ability to touch the innermost emotions in the audience. Her diversity and versatile expression are demonstrated in these two quotes: “Pure Viking goddess, deserves her own festival” Charlie Ivens from Playlouder.com and “Like she was pulled straight from a fairy tale” Reykjavík Grapevine.

På dansk

Eivør Pálsdóttir, vokal

Eivør er singer-songwriter og opvokset i den lille landsby Gøta. Eivør har en meget særegen stemme, og selv om hun har rødder i traditionelle færøske ballader, har hun interesse for et bredt spektrum af musikalske genrer fra rock, jazz, folk og pop til europæisk klassisk musik. Da hun var 16, forlod hun skolen for at bruge al sin tid på sin store passion: at synge og skrive musik. 11 år, otte soloalbums og adskillige priser senere, er hun blevet en af de klareste stjerner på den nordatlantiske himmel. Det er ikke kun hendes betagende stemme, som gør hende speciel, men også at hun udtrykker sine kunstneriske evner som maler, historiefortæller, digter og komponist. Al denne kreative energi kommer til udtryk i et fortryllende nærvær og en sceneoptræden, som er i stand til røre de inderste følelser hos publikum. Hendes mangfoldighed og hendes alsidige udtryk demonstreres i disse to citater: "Pure Viking goddess, deserves her own festival" (Charlie Ivens fra Playlouder.com) og "Like she was pulled straight from a fairy tale" (Reykjavík Grapevine).
