Steindor Andersen

Steindór Andersen was born in 1954. His early interest in the poetry of the rímur led to his introduction to the IDUNN society where his unique talent as kvaedamadur was soon noticed. Steindór has taught rímur chanting at seminars and workshops, and these and his appearances on TV and radio have contributed to the revival of the rímur tradition in recent years. His collaboration with the Icelandic group Sigur Rós, resulting in tours in Europe and the United States, has sparked an unprecedented interest in this hitherto neglected musical form.

Steindór has of late been part of various projects whose aim has been cross-cultural fertilization with the intent of bringing the rímur to a wider audience, but at the same time he has been instrumental in preserving the ‘bare bones’ of the tradition so that others may draw inspiration or enjoyment from this simple, yet elaborate, form of music and poetry. Steindór has for many years worked as a fisherman and as captain of his own ship called Idunn.
