Summer concert series in Seyðisfjörður Iceland

About the series

The Blue Church Summer Concert Series was founded in 1998 by Muff Worden, musician and Sigurður Jónsson engineer.
The concerts are held in the church of Seyðisfjörður on Wednesday nights in July and early August. We aim at offering a program with a varied music, where classical music, jazz and blues, folk music and lighter music get to shine. The performers are usually highly qualified musicians.
The Seyðisfjörður church is a good concert house, praised by the performers. It houses a fairly new Steinway grand piano and a Frobenius organ with 14-15 stops. It has seats for 300 people. The concert guests are both locals and foreign travelers.
The first years Muff was the heart and soul of the concert series but she passed away in 2006. Today the board of the concert series is nominated by the municipality of Seyðisfjörður en the church. The chair of the board is Sigurður Jónsson, who founded the concert series with Muff.
