Amazing Iceland-orientated contemporary classical label Bedroom Community have announced a tour of Europe in April 2010. The Whale Watching Tour will feature performances from label founders Valgeir Sigurðsson, Nico Muhly, Ben Frost and Sam Amidon.
The tour follows a spate of new releases, details of which can be found on their website. Everything on this label is worthy of your attention. For real.
They say: "In 2006, Icelandic producer Valgeir Sigurðsson founded the Bedroom Community record label with Nico Muhly and Ben Frost, soon adding Sam Amidon to the intimate roster. After three years of concerts, collaborations and acclaimed album releases, the Bedroom Community is heading out together for a trek across Europe: The Whale Watching Tour.
More than just a series of concerts, this tour is an extension of the ongoing musical exchange between these diverse artists. Disparate musical backgrounds will coexist and collide as Valgeir, Nico, Ben and Sam perform music from their catalogues, as well as introducing new and previously unreleased material (and a surprise or two along the way).
