The singer Anna Sigríður Helgadóttir, leads singing gatherings with the accompanist Aðalheiður Þorsteinsdóttir at the City Library in Árbær.
The songs are usually traditional Icelandic folk songs but this time they will focus on Christmas songs. The lyrics are projected on a screen so nothing should stop the library‘s singing birds to take part.
All are welcome and no former singing experience requested, we only focus on having a good time together.
