Songs and stories in Eyrarbakki or wherever you want to work ...
It has been said that most Icelanders and most intelligent domestic animals are aware of Valgeir Guðjónsson's existence, his music and lyrics. He has traveled extensively in his creations and finds it rather tricky to choose songs that suit his audience at any given time.
As one of the main bridge keepers of the Eyrabakki Bridge, Valgeir is always ready to allow guests to enjoy their work. He steps on the deck in Bakkastofa, the Red House or in Saga Music Hall, as the case may be, and sets foot on land if requested.
The repertoire covers a wide range of Valgeir's works, including those that share the letter S as a symbol: Spilverki þjóðanna, Stuðmönnar, Saga Music and the artist's so - called solo career. The composer presents his own work.

The housewife in Bakkastofa, Ásta Kristrún, traces her ancestry to "Húsið" in the fifth generation from the honorable couple Guðmundur Thorgrímssen and Sylvía Níelsdóttir who did many good and necessary works in Eyrarbakki, as I recall. From them a large family has grown and the aunts 'and cousins' garden has contributed a lot to many things.
Stories of these people have been preserved in the family, from generation to generation.
Ásta Kristrún grew up with these stories and enjoys sharing them, because they are often large and dramatic in form and shed light on the past, from which much can be learned.
