Concerto grotto w/Hamferð (FO)
Sail with us to a sea-grotto where you enter in a boat to experience live music, played in the unique acoustics of this unusual concert hall. The trips are arranged in cooperation with Summartónar Festival and have been a regular event for some years now.
Enjoy The Norðlýsið, the fresh sea air and the breathtaking views on the way to the destination. Sense the excitement of visiting a sea-grotto and the exceptional experience of a musician utilizing the special acoustics of the grotto. After the 15-30 min. concert, you return to the Norðlýsið and a hot bowl of our creamy fish soup.
* This trip requires you to be able to transfer into a boat for the grotto visit, and back aboard after the trip. This requires normal agility. You will also be required to fit a flotation suit or vest.

Faroese myths and the dramatic environment of their home are the foundations for the melancholic world in which Hamferð operates. After more than a decade of delving into the grand and often sombre atmosphere that accompanies the history, the weather, the soul of the Faroe Islands, Hamferð continue to refine their take on Faroese doom metal. For the performance in Klæmintsgjógv, they strip their massive soundscape down to its primordial essence and rebuild it with new tragic layers.
