With 14 awards were on the for line this year’s Faroese Music Awards on March 8th, Saturday’s big winner was Eivør who claimed four awards.
Not unlike last year’s FMA show, the event had to be handled somewhat differently due to the ongoing public health concerns, this time around with government-owned broadcaster KvF as main sponsor.
Apart from winning an award for ‘Female Singer of the Year’, ‘Album Cover of the Year’ for her album Segl, and ‘Music Video of the Year’ for “Sleep On It”, the lyrics to her song “Mánasegl”, written by author Marjun Syderbø Kjelnæs, were also named ‘Lyrics of the Year’.
