This week we said “Heil og sæl” to new our Viking friends Nathan Rees, Marcus Wood and Vicky Clubb.
They visited Claire Gevaux and Natalie Bays on our Sunday afternoon Arts Programme to tell us all about their new musical “Blóðlína” which is on its way to Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Blóðlína is a Viking Fight Musical which incorporates stage combat with music live on stage, which we definitely think is a unique and exciting concept.
Nathan is a writer from Westcliff-on-Sea and, along with fellow Essex residents Marcus and Vicky, has been promoting Blóðlína within Essex before it goes off to Edinburgh.
It also gave us an opportunity to play out a fun Nordic playlist including the likes of Håkan Hellström, Daði Freyr and Sigur Ros.
