Magga Stína sings Megas – Concert
Magga Stína performs songs of Megas with a band and choir. Special guests include Didda and Sigrún Eðvaldsdóttir, as well as a band of well-known, Icelandic musicians such as Matthías Hemstock, Jakob Smári Magnússon, Daníel Friðrik Böðvarsson and Björgvin Gíslason on sitar.
Megas’ work occupies a unique place in Icelandic national consciousness and his contribution to Icelandic music and lyrics is invaluable. The concert will be dedicated to Megas’ long and adventurously diverse career, including classical treasures such as Fílahirðirinn frá Súrín, Gamli sorrí Gráni, Tvær stjörnur, as well as Megas’s music to Hallgrímur Pétursson’s Passion hymns.
*Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances, Björk is unable to perform at the concert as previously advertised.
