WWT: Volcano Disruption!

Before I get to the point of this message I want to pause for a second and remind us all that things could be worse. The devastating effects of some previous eruptions and more recent natural disasters have not hit, and hopefully will not. Hundreds of people have been evacuated from their homes as water carried pieces of ice the size of small houses down the mountain, but people are safe.

Valgeir in Paris - March 28th

Valgeir Sigurðsson will be playing a solo show in Paris this coming Sunday at La Flèche d'or.

He will be sharing a bill with his longtime friend and collaborator Hildur Guðnadóttir (pictured), who’s last album Without Sinking (Touch) was mixed by Valgeir. Hildur in turn provided her haunting cello to the Draumalandið album, featuring most prominently on the tracks “I offer prosperity and eternal life” and “Beyond the Moss”.
