Up and down and there in the middle – presents: A folk song trio with Sunday coffee.
A Coffee party and concert in the living room at home. A small concert, where simplicity comes first but in a magnificent way., soprano, performs Icelandic folk songs in three concerts, each with its own theme, and will be streamed on the World Wide Web, now in November 2020.
Three concerts, with different emphases, which still have the true Icelandic core of folk songs. Dark blue tone, suitable for the short day. Folk songs describe emotions, love, nature, life, death, hopes and expectations. Time travel to human life as it appears in stories, poems and songs. A few foreign folk songs, which are suitable for each theme, will be on offer in the invitation and spice up life and give us a little insight into how other nations expressed themselves with folk songs. Some are familiar, some are new, just as they should be.
The concert starts at 15:00 (Icelandic time). The concert will be streamed on the world wide web on Anna’s Facebook page; www.facebook.com/Anna-J%C3%B3nsd%C3%B3ttir-soprano-185253836665.
November 15: Children and animals

Yes, and one more thing, Anna sings the folk songs without accompaniment. For those unfamiliar, it means that no instrument plays with it, except some strange instruments, such as the bird flute, drum and harp that Anna uses to add variety.
