Folk Tunes from Finland


VELLAMO: Finnish Folk Duo

Pia Leinonen and Joni Tiala's performing and songwriting are characterized by haunting melodies, Pia's ethereal lead vocals and Joni's virtuosic guitar stylings. According to David Kidman of FATEA Magazine, “retro feel – kinda Trader Horne/first-album Fairport, maybe more than a hint of the Fariñas, with a touch of early-electric-Dylan/McGuinn jangle.” 

Wednesday October 18th, 7:00pm

Performance is FREE and open to all members of the public
