Kristján Kristjánsson

I met Kristjan in Reykjavik, Iceland where he invited us onto his tiny fishing boat for a ride around the bay. Kristján Kristjánsson also known as KK (pronounced Kao Kao) is an Icelandic blues and folk musician. KK was born in the US, but later moved to Iceland with his family. He attended music school in Malmö, Sweden for four years and then played his way across Europe from 1985 until 1990, when he returned to Iceland.
