At this time of every year we here in Iceland held a event witch almost last for one month , and it´s called Þorri .

At this feast and music Festival we eat food made like was done in the past , and the smell is not always as it´s best like the shark and sour whale meat , along with dry fish , lamp meat and of course
the Black Death ( BRENNIVÍN ) witch some of you who visit the Portaferry Gathering know about , we always put the brennivín in the freezer for over night , that bring ´s the better taste out

and the music is Icelandic folk song , from now and from the past , Fimmundar songs like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmdPUobgmaE and many more , here is list ,,
Krummi krunkar úti
Krummi svaf í klettagjá
þorraþræll

and many more , at some places they only sing Rímur and Stemmur witch are the oldest Icelandic folk music that we know of that we can still use , there have been found some older music form´s I have here at home but I have no knowledge of any cd of that music so far .


so Gleðilegan Þorramánuð ,

all the best Skarpi ICeland .

Thank you Skarpi. Listening to your Youtube link, and following the recommends to other Icelandic folk music, there is some really, really good stuff out there. Both instrumental and choral. Is this music very old? To my ear it sounds medieval.

Thanks for the information and the link, Skarpi. I like the music.

When I was in Reykjavik recently, we went to the show called "How to Beocme Icelandic in 60 Minutes. " We were impressed by the two creepy ghost songs we heard there.

Something I found when looking that up - the festival in early July at Siglufjordur. Skarpi, have you been to that? (Musically it seems a bit hand-knitted, but the location is unbeatable).

How well I remember the shark meat and the firewater at Portaferry. That was a good while ago. Lots of things have happened since then.

"þorraþræll" is a very familiar tune, but I thought it was Austrian or Bavarian (and I've certainly never heard Icelandic words to it before). What is its origin?

How about a 'Viking Blood Eagle' to entertain the crowds?

I'm terribly sorry, keberoxu, but I'm descended from Onundsson the Wicked, of Uppsala, and the old family traditions linger on. I grant you it tends to annoy the neighbours....

On my first trip to Iceland in 1994, I bought a recording called "Melodies in the Midnight Sun". My husband and I liked it very much, and we are still playing it nowadays.

Here's a page on it:

Helen, thanks for the link.

Our last visit was in September, four months ago. One night, my husband was photographing the northern lights using a digital SLR camera on a tripod. This was in the parking lot of a rural hotel. To his amusement, a number of cell-phone owners stepped up and photographed the image on the back of the SLR.

My posting seems to have got lost.

Skarpi, are you still reading this? Have you been to the Siglufjordur festival? It looks very tempting but I'd like to hear some first hand info.

Skarpi are you still here?

I was thinking quite seriously about going to Siglufjordur this year, it looks like something unique. But I'd like a bit more first-hand info.
