South River Band is a group of music lovers with common roots in a small village in Northern Iceland. The name “South River Band” is derived from small farm called South River (Syðri-Á in Icelandic) where the band was founded one joyful evening in August 2000, during a festival held by the families tracing their origin to this small village. The band mainly plays and sings its own music, an unusual Icelandic folk music mixture spiced with traits from all over the world, but also plays traditional music from countries such as the Ukraine, Ireland, the United States, Finland, Spain and Sweden.
