Voces Thules in Siglufjörður at last…Voces Thules – Loksins á Siglufirði …

From Siglufjörður - The manager of VT,Arngerður Árnadóttir, on stage, playing.It was about time Voces Thules participated in the Folk Music Festival in Siglufjörður in the Nort part of Iceland.  The festival was on for the 12th time this summer and was a big success. Voces Thules performed in a part of the Museum in Siglufjörður called The Boat House and the stage was an old fishing boat from the time when Siglufjörður was the most important Herring-harbour in Iceland and probably in the whole world. The audience filled the Boat house, sitting on the piers. The title of the festival was “Let there be danced” so Voces Thules dedicated a part of the program to the old, Icelandic dance songs, Vikivaki, in addition to a traditional Icelandic medieval Music.

Here you can see (in Icelandic, sorry) brief critics about the Concert.  Mr. Jónas Sen, who wrote the article in Fréttablaðið, stated that the concert was unique and entertaining. The instruments used were miscellaneous and so was the music. It was like being brought back in time to listen to this music. This concert was in a nutshell what you expect from a festival like this. The arrangements where exciting.  Also he mentioned that the audience was given insight to the music of Iceland in the middle age.Frá tónleikunum - nýjasti meðlimur VT, Arngerður Árnadóttir mætt á sviðÞað var löngu tímabært að Voces Thules syngju á Þjóðlagahátíðinni á Siglufirði og það gerðist einmitt á  hátíðinni sem fram fór 6.-10. júlí 2011. Sungnir voru tónleikar í Bátahúsinu við ótrúlega skemmtilegar aðstæður, tónleikapallurinn var síldarbátur og áheyrendur, sem fylltu húsið, sátu á bryggjum og ýmsu sem tengdist sögu Siglufjarðar. Yfirskrift hátíðarinnar var Látum dansinn duna og af því tilefni reiddu Voces Thules fram gömul danskvæði í bland við trúarlega tónlist og efni úr fornbókmenntunum. Hér má sjá blaðagrein/gagnrýni um hátíðina og tónleika Voces Thules úr fréttablaðinu 14. júlí.
