Lindy Vopnfjörd


Born into the Icelandic community in Manitoba, Canada, Lindy Vopnfjörd’s cultural heritage and musician parents helped shape the intuitive artist’s music career early, singing traditional Icelandic songs with his family. By age four, the intuitive artist was already well-versed in Icelandic folk songs and developing 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, dad, and extended family, he developed an appreciation for performing as a form of sharing. Touring comes naturally to Lindy, and to see him live is to witness years of experience in honest delivery and authentic exchange with a dedication as real to a room of three as when he’s performing to stadiums. Lindy has performed six albums’ worth of originals that have mesmerized, delighted and moved audiences of all kinds, from house parties and bars to embassies, theatre halls (with Canada’s Whitehorse), and large festivals such as Montreal’s Osheaga, Reykjavik Folk Festival, and Hillside Festival in Guelph.
