Crew of Húni II to Play at Every Harbor in Iceland

Fifty-year old oak boat Húni II, which is usually docked in Akureyri, North Iceland, will sail around the country in July and the crew—a custom-made band—will perform at 16 locations along the way.

The band comprises of musicians Jónas Sigurðsson, Lára Rúnarsdóttir, Mugison, Ómar Guðjónsson, Guðni Finnsson and Arnar Gíslason, reports.

The concerts are held to raise funds for the search and rescue association ICE-SAR. The member association of each town organizes one concert and the ticket price goes towards their operation.

National broadcaster RÚV will follow the band, making television and radio programs about the tour.
