Heri Joensen, lead vocal and guitarist of Týr completing the “Skálafjarðarsvimjingin 2013” open water swim across the firth Skálafjørður in the Faroe Islands, Sunday 16 June, 2013, in sync with his girlfriend. I suspect they gave him the No. 13 cap on purpose :-)

Týr frontman Heri Joensen completes the 2013 swim across Skálafjørður

Here is one of their songs, built upon one of our traditional ballads (see “kvæði“)

Here is him being interviewed while touring USA

And here is Sinklars Vísa being sung in the traditional Faroese chain dance way, a story about The Battle of Kringen when Norwegians decimated a force of Scottish mercenaries led by George Sinclair in the Kalmar War (1611-1613).
