Björn Thoroddsen, Gunnar Thórdarson and Jón Rafnsson founded the trio Guitar Islancio in 1998. They have devoted themselves to folksongs that people have played and sung through the centuries. Folksongs are an inseparable part of cultural heritage that the trio approaches attentively and respectfully. While performing the songs, the threesome improvises. Simple tunes take on a modern nuance that is at once Icelandic and international. The trio has been very popular. It has performed at concerts and music festivals in many parts of the world.
