Kvonn is a lively group of Faroese musicians, who play traditional and contemporary folk music from around Scandinavia.
Kvonn's repertoire includes music composed by the band members, as well as traditional tunes and tunes from the 18th century notebook of Faroese musician and scholar Jens Chr. Svabo.
Three of the musicians, Sharon Weiss, Ívar Bærentsen and Kristian Blak, are regular members of the international, Faroe-based group Spælimenninir, which has toured widely in Europe, the United States, Japan, New Zealand and Australia, since the late '70s, playing at folk festivals, dances, clubs, and concerts and conducting educational programs in schools and universities. Since their early teens, both Angelika Hansen and Mikael Blak have regularly performed with Spælimenninir too, and for the last few years Kvonn has existed as a group on its own.
