Eivør wins the prestigious 2021 Nordic Council Music Prize 

Last night, Tuesday 2nd November, from the Skuespilhuset in Copenhagen.

The Nordic Council awards five prizes each year for literature, film, music, the environment, and young peoples literature. This year the Faroe Islands was represented by Eivør, who very deservedly took home the coveted music prize, after her 2021 album Segl, was nominated earlier in the year. 

The prize for music focuses on the performance and creation of music to the highest artistic standard. 

"Eivør has crafted a unique career since she stepped, almost fully formed, into the music scene in her native country, the Faroe Islands. A naturally gifted musician - with a beautiful singing voice, great guitar skills and an all-encompassing stage presence - Eivør has charmed music lovers the world over. She released her first eponymous album in 2000, a folk/jazz-tinged affair but has tackled a variety of styles since then, touching on noise-rock, country, experimental, classical music and all out pop-diva material. All of these endeavours have been infused with remarkable artistry and integrity. 

Eivør’s tireless work-ethic over the past years has cast a spotlight on her home country and she meticulosity works with her musical heritage and native language. Eivør is a bona fide “Nordic” artist but at the same time she has managed to carve out a status as an international pop star, travelling around the world with her renowned stage act. A brave and curious artist, she manages to connect with her audience with remarkable ease, tapping into the humane side of all us with both dignity and grace”. 

The prize was presented to her in front of a packed Skuespilhuset, as many thousands tuned in to watch the show from Faroe Islands, all across the Nordic region, and the world. 

Our warmest congratulations to Eivør, for this very well deserved honour, who continues to serve music, through her wonderful creation, and her beloved homeland. To her tireless work, and the team that support her in this. Our heartfelt congratulations, and of course deepest thanks.
