The short and long Folk song programs can be arranged at the Akranes Folk Museum area. There are a few charming old houses in the museum area. We will choose a house depending on group size and availability. We could even surprise your friends and family with a "pop-up" music performance somewhere in the area. Opening  hours are from 10 am to 5 pm.  We can provide our music programs outside of opening hours-contact us for details.

In addition, and only for the short Folk song program, there is the Akranes Lighthouse. Probably the most visited tourist attraction in town. The lighthouse has amazing acoustic for music performances and a spectacular view. It is available at certain hours. Please contact us for more details.
