Fredericksburg Songwriters' Showcase Gustav Haggren

Gustav Haggren

Gustav Haggren is the leader and songwriter of Gustav & The Seasick Sailors, a six-piece band from Helsingborg, Sweden. The sound is a mix of tango, folk, country and pop and would go well on a mix-tape together with Tom Waits, Josh Rouse, Wilco and Ryan Adams. Gustav himself is 23 years old and is born without his right hand, a disability overcome by a specially designed artifical hand that helps him to play with a pick.

Right now, Gustav is touring USA and Canada as a solo-artist and will perform together with Helena Arlock on cello.

“Gustav & the Seasick Sailors second album makes me calm, satisfied and in love” Groove Magazine

”Nice, serious, and most of all well-played” PO Tidholm, Dagens Nyheter

”The only thing that feels right is to get up and dance like crazy, which I, without knowing it, also do.” Hallands Posten
