Just visiting friends and family in Iceland and they fix me up to support acclaimed Mr. Silla @ Loft Hostel in Reykjavik. How sweet is that? Concert begins at 21 on 15 June. Be there if you can.

Today I was awarded the annual Travel and Culture Stipend from the City of Umeå, to the amount of SEK 15.000, with the motivation (in translation):
Freyr is awarded the stipend for his enourmously many-facetted musical creativity. For the last two years Freyr has collaborated with over 30 musicians and been involved in arranging at least 16 musical events in Umeå. He has also received the highest praise for his music from national and international critics. Through his music, Freyr has contributed to the strengthening of Umeå’s status in Sweden and the World as a City of music and culture
A great honour, thank you so much!

I am doing a set on “Kullar & Klang”, a Festival celebrating Spring, Sustainability, and Change. It is happening on 16th May. My set starts at 19:40.
Freyr Flodgren í Brother North, sem Rjóminn hefur fjallað um áður, vinnur nú að sólóplötu. Hingað til vinnur hann efnið fyrir rödd og klassískan gítar en svo á að bætast við kontrabassi og slagverk. Freyr hefur þegar tekið upp nokkur lög “læf í stúdíóinu” en svo er planið að fara í endanlegar upptökur með haustinu.

An incredibly enthusiastic post in Kentuckyseven. Thank you Magnus:
“One half of the amazing duo Brother North, Freyr Flodgren, is creating some magnetically beautiful tunes in a solo project.”
