The Shetland times: Faroese country man Joensen Impresses


It was testimony to Faroese country star Hallur Joensen’s popularity locally.
He has returned to Shetland with guitarist Beddi Hansen to play three gigs.
The Shetland Country Music Club had come up trumps with this formula for a band which included; Brian and Arthur Nicolson – on the guitars which seem to be joined to their hips – Maggie Adamson’s effortless swing fiddle and that old white stork of a steel guitar player Robertson to swish the sleek notes…

Hallur Joensen the winner of the Faroese Music Awards – FMA in category: Male singer of the year 2013.
