Christine Kammerer is an internationally known singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and composer who is also lead singer and lyre player in the Viking band Gjaldulei and dark Nordic folk band Jotun Revolution.
Kammerer’s music is a fusion of Nordic and Celtic folk soundscapes, with a distinctive cinematic and symphonic character to it. Together with her hypnotic and sonorous voice and magical lyre, she draws the listener into a universe, which moves from tales of human nature to stories about folklore, myth and legend.
Throughout the past 6 years she has performed at markets, festivals and venues Denmark, the UK, Germany and USA. Some of Kammerer’s collaborations are with: Lofotr Viking Museum (NO), Moesgaard Museum (DK), The Scottish Crannog Centre (UK), Helsinore/Kronborg Castle (DK), Kjell Braaten, Bethesda Nordic, UNESCO RILA / University of Glasgow, Ledreborg Castle, Land of Legends. She has also performed for Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II, at the opening of the exhibition “Togtet” at the National Museum of Denmark.
“The ease with which Ms. Kammerer weaves folklore, music and cultural heritage together in her compositions and performance struck us. When she performed on her lyre and sang on the banks of Loch Tay, the world stopped. She captivates a diverse audience of all ages with her voice and song, creating an interactive space in which she facilitated an experience which stretched far beyond the event itself.”~ Professor Alison Phipps, UNESCO RILA Chair / University of Glasgow
She has released 2 EP’s, 3 singles and a music video “Raven Brings Runes” out.
In 2023 she was amongst the “Highly Recommended” at DKOS at Celtic Connections and in 2021 her song “Eversong” was also among the finalists in World Songwriting Awards.
Working in the intersection between history, culture and music also lead her to developing the event “Whisky and Witches” a collaboration with Jane Ross, owner of the whisky bar Mother Superior in Edinburgh. We have another event coming up soon.
