Hafdis Huld

Monday 13th – Hafdís HuldKitchen Garden Café, Birmingham

Previous GusGus member Hafdís Huld has been in the music game for a long time. Her successful solo career began with her debut album Dirty Paper Cup in 2006 and her folky singer/songwriter sound has only grown since and so has the appreciation for her music. Have you not yet discovered her talent, you have the opportunity to pop by her concert at the Kitchen Garden Café in Birmingham.
