Greensky Bluegrass Will Be Setting Up Camp In Iceland In June

Innovative band Greensky Bluegrass have announced the first ever Camp Greensky Iceland. CGI will take place in Reykjavik, Iceland June 3-5 at Eldborg Hall, located within the Harpa Concert and Conference Centre

Anders Beck from the band comments:

In the spirit of adventure, we are taking our beloved Camp Greensky festival to Iceland this summer.  Remember when we were kids and you or your friends went to sleep away camp? It’s like that, but with 3 nights of Greensky with Holly Bowling and opening sets by Fruition. In addition, we will be having aftershow parties with some of our favorite bands, The Lil Smokies and Neighbor and both aftershows will feature members of Greensky joining the fun.  As you can imagine, we are super excited to share this news with you and hope that you will join us on this carefully cultivated Greensky adventure! 

Greensky Bluegrass is made up of road-tested and longtime collaborators Anders Beck (dobro), Michael Arlen Bont (banjo), Dave Bruzza (guitar), Mike Devol (upright bass), and Paul Hoffman (Mandolin).
