Andy,Andy,you there?!Cause,given that this thread is back on the forum,I might tell you a fresh new story.Just in case you ever miss Oz or your friends from Katyusha. So.Last saturday Nigel(McLaughsomething I can't spell)came over to visit from Canberra.I wanted him to check out the session they have on sat nights in Newtown,so i brought him over and there we started talking to a musician sitting next to us.As Nigel was going on about finnish music,the musician asked him to play some of it(ehm...what about that story of the five-per-cent?!)on the whistle.The conversation went on and the musician finally asked Nigel:so,are you Finnish?!(red hair and freckles,definitely a finnish look).And Nigle,out of the blue,firmly answered:yes!.
Ok,I thought,he's probably having fun making up stories,but then the conversation switched to australian music and the supposed-finnish claimed solid roots in bush music,sort of:"Oh,yes,I had to grow up with it,my first band was called the possums something"(can't remember.)
We went home and I told him plainly:look,next time you tell stories,at least stick to them!Isn't it a little bit broadminded of a finnish guy to be interested in bush music?!And what about your accent?!And where do you come from?!
As a matter of fact,Nigel had no recollection of being asked if he was Finnish.Indeed,he thought he was answering 'yes' to a completely different question.So great,now what were we supposed to do with that fellow who still believed him to be finnish?!We started a story. The story is,that these two finnish parents died on a plane crash (heading to Australia)and Nigel survived(great,Nigel.How comes you survived?!)and after that was brought up from an aussie-aussie family,fed with bush music and irish reels,and because of the trauma he forgot the language.And of course playing finnish stuff with Katyusha is part of his terapy to recover his finnish heritage.
Andy,have you got some suggestions for a better story?!I would have poster this as a private message but you keep on guesting!!!Hope it made you laugh,especially if you can think about the character involved.All the best,anyway.Lena

It's a song from my youth. I only remember the first verse and chorus. I'd love to get the rest of the verses Kittos. Bob Nelson, Everettessa, Wa. USA

Well, I went to the Frifot show on Friday, and they were great, of course. Good seats and all that, too. While there, I bought a ticket to next month's Gjallarhorn show. I hear (on this thread and elsewhere) that they're also good. Anyone else heard them?

And Jed, that does sound like a great show. :)

Lepus Rex - I missed your question re: Risto Jarvenpaa. Risto did a children show. He played Finnish folk music. The kids really responded - sining and dancing along with him. The piper played penny whistle and Uilleann Pipes. It was a great show.

Well, I dragged my jet-lagged self down to NYC to hear Garmarna on Wednesday night. I'd have to say I'd rather have seen them at the Decorah Elks. They were good, but the venue (the Winter Garden, basically at the foot of the World Trade Center) wasn't at all good for them. It's a cavernous atrium complete with palm trees, and there are shops and restaurants along the sides, so people are coming and going constantly and there's a lot of background noise to contend with, as well as the echo... they seemed to be struggling at times to hear one another. It was better when they were doing the noisy, way-cool stuff and rocking out than when they were trying to play the more sparse stuff. Emma Hardelin certainly sang beautifully; the weird acoustics meant that the upper range of her voice came through better than the lower. So, it was fun to see them in action and the material was beautiful, but I hope I have another chance to see them. Also, they only played for an hour; considering my journey was two hours in each direction, that seemed a bit scant, but hey, it was free.... Margaret

Cool, Margaret. Hope you can make it to that concert. And they'll probably play some regular Garmarna stuff for an encore, if you all clap and stomp loud enough. They came back out for us and announced that they had just played all their H von B material and had nothing left, so they played 'Vittrad,' which was great. :)

The guys I was sitting next to were also going down the the Decorah show, lucky bastards... At the Elk's Lodge, heh.

We just did a show today with Risto Jarvenpaa. Eammon (himself) played bodrhan and I ran sound. Risto had his piper Marcus with him, and the three of them did a great show at little church hall for about 150 people. I didn't understand much, but the music was great! Risto did mainly a kids show and had excellent enhthusiasm and participation.

Hey, Lepus, I read it, even when I'm in Dublin, which I am (what a loser, you're thinking; she's in DUBLIN, what the hell is she doing in an internet cafe?! Well, you know, it's that funny two hours between dinner and when the music starts...) I'm still hoping I'll have the energy to see Garmarna in New York, even though it's the day after I get back from here. Thanks for the review, a good nudge to get me down to the city on the 8th. Bye!

Just got back from my second Garmarna concert in two days. Both great shows, too. Last night's was at the Cedar Cultural Centre in Mpls. Tonight's was at St.Clement's Church in StPaul, and they did their Hildegard von Bingen stuff. Emma Härdelin sang beautifully, as always. Rickard Westman wasn't on this tour, and they had an English guy who's name I've already forgotten standing in for him. They're going to Chicago next, and then to Decorah, Seattle, NY, and Delaware. So if you're near any of those places, trust me and buy a ticket. Oh, who even reads this old thread besides the people who've always read it? Go to my last message and click on NorthSide, and check it out if you have no idea who Garmarna is or why I love them. :)

Wimme was excellent, too. Had great seats again (two hours early again). The show seemed kind of short, though. Wimme's joiking was beautiful, and he told some interesting and funny stories about his family and childhood between songs. The music was great, too. The guy sitting next to me came all the way from Utah for the Wimme and Hedningarna shows, which was pretty damned cool. Again, pawn your kids! :)

I'm getting ready to see Wimme Saari tonight. Saw Hedningarna last night, and they kicked ass. First time I've seen them with Magnus Stinnerbom (from Harv) and Liisa Matveinen in the band, and they were great. Anyone who hasn't seen Hedningarna live, make a pilgrimage to their next concert. Pawn your organs. Sell your children into indentured servitude. Rob a bank. Or maybe not. But it's a great show:)

Carol: A great source for Finnish music played solo on a Honner c/g accordion is by Richard Koski. Richard sat down and recorded 52 old songs that he had learned from his father.He did so for he felt that these old songs were being forgoten and lost.

Guest, Andy (can't do your last name, sorry),

I haven't heard much Finnish music performed by others, but I am learning how to play the accordion, and some of my favorite pieces that I'm learning to play are traditional Finnish waltzes.

Do you play traditional Finnish music yourself? If so, do you have any helpful advice for a beginner like myself?

I did ,for 8 years the band I was in is now called 'Katushya',you might have wandered in their direction at the last national Probably only 5 percent of their stuff is Finnish(if that). In Amsterdam I bought a dubious-looking cd called 'the rough guide to Scandinavia,I dont usually go in for that sort of thing ,but it was one of those rare times where i had money to waste.Asit turned out it was'nt a waste there were some good things that I had'nt heard before like FRIFOT .and other swedish and Norweigan bands.

Sure, Margaret... Nordan Project has released two (that I know of) albums, 'Nordan' and 'Agram' on ECM. The cds are actually labelled 'Lena Willemark/Ale Möller', but they're only two of the members, so that seems kind of unfair...

They play mostly old Swedish ballads and folk songs, but in a less 'folky,' more jazzy way than Frifot. Their albums are probably at your local record shop, but they can be hard to find: I've seen them in the 'folk' section, sometimes in 'jazz', sometimes in 'international'... One time I saw them sitting in 'easy listening.'

But if you like Frifot, I'd really recommend them:)
