Snorri Helgason Makes Kids Smile Tonight

Snorri Helgason Makes Kids Smile Tonight

Published May 31, 2012

Wondering what to do tonight? Snorri Helgason will be headlining GogoYoko’s second to last charity concert of the summer. At 22:30 he takes the stage for his charity, Barnabros. Barnabros is a charity that simply, “does nice things for underprivledged children.” (Why didn’t we think of that?) This is a particularly great combination because we think Snorri’s melodies are as sweet as a child’s smile on a summer day. Listen to a free concert of beautiful music to help kids? Yes please. For added awesomeness Grapevine’s own Sindri Eldon will join him!
