About Lindy Vopnfjörd
Born into the Icelandic community in Manitoba, Canada, Lindy Vopnfjörd started his music career early. Singing traditional Icelandic songs with his family, cultural heritage and musician parents shaped this intuitive artist. By age four, Vopnfjörd was already pronouncing his “stand and care for the world” bent as an Icelandic-Canadian folk artist by singing cautionary songs against nuclear war. Traveling around by bus with his mom and dad and extended family, he developed an appreciation for performing as a form of sharing. He has performed seven albums’ worth of originals which have mesmerized, delighted and moved audiences at house parties and bars to embassies, theatre halls in Canada’s Whitehorse and large festivals, such as Montreal’s Osheaga, Reykjavik Folk Festival and the Hillside Festival.
