In the serene fjordlands of Norway in the early
twentieth century, Ingrid has led a blissful childhood until, through no choice
of her own, she becomes holder of her family’s secrets.
Ingrid’s father, a blind preacher who ministers
through sacred music played on glassware, increasingly relies on her to see for
him even as it threatens to tear apart his marriage. And after she witnesses an
assault against her sister, Ingrid must decide when to speak and when to remain
silent, whom to trust and when to run away.
Glassmusic explores the sometimes devastating
realities of loyalty and jealousy, with philosophy, music and love as guides.
The book will be available for sale in our gift

For the first time ever the Icelandic group Árstíðir will give tour in the US.
This will be their only performance in Seattle. Don’t miss this opportunity!
Intricate songwriting from Iceland transports you to a world of restless, driven
guitars, intimate piano, and mountainous string arrangements. But don't let the
lush atmosphere deceive you. The delicate, acoustic vocals are so powerful that
your heart will never be the same again.
When Icelandic chamberpop group Árstíðir sang an ancient Icelandic hymn inside
the cavernous hall of a German train station, they never anticipated the aftermath.
Millions of people worldwide were mesmerized by the moment, which was captured on
camera and subsequently plastered across every social media newsfeed. The quartet
have sold out cathedrals in Europe, played with symphonies across Siberia,
performed at a music festival 500 miles from the North Pole, and enchanted people
worldwide with their unique take on Iceland's haunting musical tonality.
