During the sleepy autumn months of 2010 Viking descendant, Stian Vedøy set sail in his longship to embark on the shores of Cardiff, South Wales. New lands and legends soon inspired him to begin his journey in a solo project, Firewoodisland, translated from his family name. In the following 3 years he was joined by local folk and travelers, who together, found a magical sound. They came from near and far, north, west and east; from England, Wales and Ireland in search of their futures. Some were found in taverns, some in gatherings, and one was discovered on an internet advertising site.
Expect uplifting tunes, joyful skipping, mesmerizing stories, enchanting anthems and an exciting fusion of unusual instruments. Creativity and artistry are the campfire they dance around.
They are family; they are Firewoodisland!
