Legendary actor Bill Murray surprises his audiences once again with his versatility, teaming up with acclaimed German cellist Jan Vogler, to present a spirited evening of music and literature, for two nights only at the Reykjavik Arts Festival. In this rare live appearance, Murray – as both singer and narrator – brings his irresistible charm and wit to songs by Foster, Gershwin, Mancini, and Bernstein, as well as readings of classic American poetry and prose, in dialogue with Vogler’s singing Stradivari cello.
Actor Bill Murray and cellist Jan Vogler met on an airplane several years ago, and have developed this programme to perform together after becoming intrigued by each other's artistic worlds.
