In celebration of our 10th Anniversary this year, the three founders of Bedroom Community : Valgeir Sigurðsson, Ben Frost, and Nico Muhly, join fellow Community artists Sam Amidon, Nadia Sirota, Borgar Magnason, Una Sveinbjarnardóttir, and Helgi Jónsson on a Whale Watching Tour of the United States in March and April.

This marks the third Whale Watching Tour, and the first since a European adventure in 2010. Bedroom Community was founded in 2006 by composer and producer/engineer Valgeir Sigurðsson as a place for like-minded artists to create and release otherwise unreleasable music. The Whale Watching Tour is an unusual and ambitious premise. The artists, who are friends and colleagues, present what is more like a musical conversation with aspects of a show-and-tell than a formal concert.
