Blue Church Summer Concert Series in Seyðisfjörður

The Blue Church Summer Concert Series started in 1998 by Muff Worden music teacher and Sigurður Jónsson engineer. The concert series has been ongoing since then, first under the firm management of Muff but after her premature death in 2006, by a formal association.
The concerts are held in the Seyðisfjörður church every Wednesday night at 8:30 pm. Emphasis has been on offering varied types of concerts where classical music, jazz, blues, folk, and light-hearted music can be enjoyed. The church houses a recent Steinway concert piano and a Frobenius organ with 14-15 stops.

Towns & Villages

Each town in Austurland has its own characteristics. In some of the coastal villages t, the influence of North European neighbors obvious to everyone. 

The French made a strong impact in Fáskrúðsfjörður where the road signs are made out in French as well as in Icelandic. Norwegian influence is easily detected in the Eskifjörður and Seydisfjörður architecture. No such roots are to be seen in Egilsstadir which is the latest addition to East Iceland agglomeration, founded in the late forties of the 20th century.
