Live in Tórshavn is a selection of sixteen Eivør instant classics from her albums Room, Bridges and Slør. The songs were selected from the recordings of three consecutive shows in the Old Theatre in Tórshavn, Faroe Islands, in 2017.
Eivør’s unique blend of Faroese tradition and various contemporary impulses transcends borders of musical genres with her modern yet timeless musical expression. Live in Tórshavn offers a great selection of her songs and displays her undisputed talent as a songwriter and what a truly extraordinary live artist she is.
Long-time friends and collaborators Mikael Blak (bass, synths), Høgni Lisberg (drums, vocals) and Hallur Johnsson (FOH engineer) are an essential part of the live show Eivør has been building since the release of her latest album Slør (2015). Live in Tórshavn is the natural continuity of the studio albums, giving them a second life and taking the songs further into the territories of alternative, rock, and folktronica. To quote Eivør herself: “The live show is my thing, and the songs truly come alive to me when I can reflect them back to an audience.”
