Heiða and Berglind – moms and sons on Tour around Iceland 2013

Heiða and Berglind – moms and sons

The musicians Heiða Eiríks and Berglind Ágústsdóttir will go on a small tour around the country, beginning of June. They both play original music, that can be catagorized as experimental, alternative popmusic, but they aproach it in different ways. Heiða uses only a folk-guitar and her voice and plays slow, melting folk-music, whereas Berglind uses a computer and a mic and plays experimental party-electro.
They decided to travel around Iceland for one week and take their sons, 11 and 13, along with them. They also bring music in casettes and cd´s that they intend to promote and sell.
You can catch their shows here:
Mon. 3rd of June: Langaholt, Snæfellsnesi
Tue. 5th of June: Hótel Djúpavík, Ströndum
Thu. 6th of June: Populus Tremula, Akureyri
Sat. 8th of June: The Bookstore-project space in collaboration with Menningarmiðstöðin Skaftfell Seyðisfirði, Seyðisfjörður

Berglind Ágústsdóttir is an artist and a musician and just finished her third album called „I am Your Girl“. She will play song from that album in the concerts, as well as some more songs. Previously she released „Fish Number One“ in the year 1997, „Friends Save the Day“ in 2010, and the vocal remix-cd „Never too late for love“ in 2010. She has also collaborated with many other bands and contributed to their albums, as well as putting on numerous exibitions. She just started a series of casettes with musical experiments and two are already published.
Heiða Eiríks has been using the name Heida the troubadour since 1989 when she started performing alone with her guitar. Heida troubadour is working on a solo-album with material that can be performed with one voice and one folk-guitar. She has, since 1994, released quite a few cd‘s with the bands Unun, Heiða & Heiðingjarnir, Ruddinn and Hellvar, as well as a few soloprojects. Her last album was the Hellvar-album „Stop that Noise“, released in 2011. She is currently working on a new children‘s album with Dr. Gunni.
This tour is sponsored by Kraumur-Music fund.
