We are very sorry to convey the news that Karlsøy Prestegård (The Karlsøy Rectory) burned down on the 4th of October. Stein and Berit who are living on there are both safe and are now living in Nordlys-huset on the farm. The fire was a great tragedy for its residents, the island and a great loss to everyone who have visited Karlsøya the last 40 years. There will be benefit concerts to support Stein and Berit in both Oslo (18th of October at Blitz) and Tromsø (2nd of November at Verkstedet). You are most welcome to attend the concerts, enjoy the music and contribute to the rebuilding of the house.
