      Festival Description

      This festival is designed to provide an opportunity for accordion enthusiasts to meet their colleagues and present the accordion and accordion music to the public. One goal is to offer as varied a program as possible so that people can see and hear this instrument played in as many different ways as possible. The instrument has been played in Iceland for generations and is an important part of the musical heritage of the nation. In recent years, the instrument’s popularity has increased as more people are learning to play and the instrument is used in contemporary and traditional music. The great number of women playing the instrument is another positive sign of the times.
