Icelandic rímur

Workshop with Bára Grímsdóttir and Chris Foster

Iceland has a unique form of epic ballads, they were written and performed for hundreds of years, from mediaeval times onwards. In this workshop we will talk about the history and the poetry and music of rímur. We will play archive recordings and of course there will be lots of opportunities for everyone to sing.

(This workshop was held at the Nordic Harp Meeting 2017 in Estonia)
