On July 16, musician Jostein Gulbrandsen perform at Scandinavia House in New York.

Jostein Gulbrandsen grew up in Norway and started playing the guitar at the age of nine. His first CD as a band leader was released to critical acclaim in both Norway and the U.S. Using a mixture of electric, acoustic and fretless guitars, his music melds both American elements of jazz and reflects his Nordic roots.

As the Manhattan skyline slips into magic hour, sip a sumptuous cocktail while enjoying an intimate concert held on Scandinavia House’s garden terrace every Thursday in July. A favored alternative to the usual midtown “happy hour,” Jazz House presents an eclectic selection of Nordic ensembles and repertoires accompanied by refreshments from Smörgås Chef’s terrace cocktail bar.

When: Thursday July 16th at 6:30 pm

Where: Scandinavia House, 58 Park Ave at 38th St, NYC

Info: $10 ($8 members)
