Ghost of Greenland er glæný sveit frá Reykjavík og hélt á sínu fyrstu tónleikaferð síðasta sumar. Sveitin hefur þó hist yfir rauðvínsglasi annað slagið síðustu þrjú árin og kunnu því gangandi vegfarendur á Baldursgötu, Guðrúnargötu og Hallveigarstíg að hafa heyrt ýmislegt útundan sér síðla á helgarkvöldum. Ghost of Greenland spilar þjóðlagakennt blúspopp þar sem klassískur hljóðfæraleikur og raddaður söngur ráða ríkjum. Facebook
