Icelandic-Canadian musician, Lindy Vopnfjörd, to launch new album at Alpha Art Gallery

Icelandic-Canadian musician, Lindy Vopnfjörd, will launch his latest album You Will Know When It’s Right at Alpha Art Gallery this Friday! With poetic and emotional music, Vopnfjörd distills human experience into the vital emotions that define a moment so crisply, and memorably.

You Will Know When It’s Right, Vopnfjörd seventh album, came into fruition after an invitation from legendary Icelandic songwriter Daníel Ágúst Haraldsson, leader of acclaimed electronic band Gus Gus, to team up and collaborate with Iceland’s most beloved band, Nydonsk. The album was recorded at the famed Hljodriti Studio in Iceland. 

Born in the Icelandic community in Manitoba, Canada, Vopnfjörd developed a passion for music from a young age. By the age of four, he was already singing traditional Icelandic songs including ones that contained cautionary tales against the nuclear war.

Touring comes naturally for Vopnfjörd as he has toured extensively across the U.K. and Canada. From theatre halls to house parties and bars, Vopnfjörd has captivated and delighted audiences around the world. He has performed at large festivals including Osheaga, the Reykjavik Folk Festival, and Hillside Festival.

Vopnfjörd currently resides in Toronto's Parkdale neighbourhood where he continues to explore art and music with the support of his artistic family and solid fan base. 

Lindy Vopnfjörd will be performing at Alpha Art Gallery, Friday, May 31, 2019 from 8:00-1:00 am. Tickets are for sale online and will be sold at the door for 25 dollars.
