Norðlýsið – Grotto Concerts


The Summartónar festival

With its focus on composition, the Summartónar festival is a continuous, vital dynamo in the development of Faroese music. The programme reflects its role as a platform for new works by Faroese composers, including several debut performances. In the past few years, Summartónar has also presented improvised music as well as contemporary folk music.

The festival offers a great lineup of unique live experiences, inlcuding amongst many others the special event “Concerto Grotto”. During the last several years, the iconic scooner Norðlýsið (the Northern Light), and Kristian Blak, artistic director of Summartónar, have arranged trips with musicians and audiences to seacaves, into which one can enter in smaller boats, utilizing the natural sounds and unique acoustics of the caves as integral parts of the music. These concerts have taken place in collaboration with Summartónar, which brings visiting musicians in addition to local performers into these unique Faroese concert halls.
