Event info

Singer, songwriter and composer Damon Albarn’s new project The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows will be performed in its entirety in Eldborg in Harpa on March 11th 2022.

Albarn has been a frequent visitor to Iceland for almost three decades and has in this time found musical inspiration in its nature and landscapes. This new piece - inspired by Albarn’s long-time love for Iceland - will see the musician perform this very personal piece with an ensemble in what will be his first concert in Iceland in 25 years.

The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows was written and composed entirely in Iceland. The title is taken from a John Clare poem entitled Love and Memory.

Damon Albarn is a singer, songwriter, composer and producer and founder member of Blur, Gorillaz and The Good, The Bad & The Queen.

Promoter: Sena Live in collaboration with Reykjavik Arts Festival

With the support of ICELANDAIR and ÍSLANDSHÓTEL
