Gudrid Hansdóttir

Way out in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, between Iceland and Scotland, is a cluster of 18 small islands called the Faroe Islands. That’s where Gudrid Hansdóttir was born and raised. Her music is a Lilith Fair-worthy blend of chamber pop and perky folk-rock and the past years she´s been performing in Europe and USA.

Her new album ”Beyond the Grey” was released on the 3rd of June 2011.The new album is filled with catchy folk songs with great inspiration from the Faroese culture and the distinctive Faroese weather. Gudrid sings in both Faroese and English and often the two languages are mixed together in the same song.
