Icelandic-Swedish Duo ‘My bubba’ Performing in Several U.S. Cities
Catch their enchanting performance in New York, D.C., Philly, Boston and Nashville this spring!
My bubba is an Icelandic-Swedish female duo whose music is described as slow and easy, vocal-oriented folk, with lyrics that are both humorous and playful. Founding and current members are Larsdotter Lucas (My) from Sweden and Guðbjörg Tómasdóttir (bubba) from Iceland.
My and bubba met by chance in Copenhagen nearly five years ago. They started singing together mostly as an evening ritual to pass the time, but it later led them to Italy to record their first album “How It’s Done in Italy.” According to the Icelandic Music Export, their songs are “sparse, allowing their delicate voices and entrancing harmonies to take center stage, sharing curious stories of their adventurous spirit in alluringly sultry sounds. Simple and direct, but rich in layers, their general folksiness belies a modern savvy that gives it all a refreshing edge.”
During the first week of April, My bubba is opening five shows for Damien Rice:
- April 1: Ryman Auditorium, Nashville
- April 3: The Lincoln Theatre, Washington DC
- April 4: Beacon Theatre, NY
- April 7: Orpheum Theatre, Boston
- April 8: Academy of Music, Philadelphia
