Welcome to the Kokkola Winter Accordion Festival XVIII!
Kimmo Pohjonen, Trio Fratres, Viivi-Maria Saarenkylä, Hannu Ilmolahti, Tallari, Vörå Player’s Club, Bengan Janson& Janne Åström from Sweden and the world-renowned juggler duo from France Jerome Thomas and Jean-Francois Baez.
All this and much more will unfold when the Kokkola Winter Accordion runs for the 18th tim 14-21 February 2016. The diverse festival week in February offers as always two weeks of surprises in an exciting performance program. The accordion will ring out all around the city as in years past — in concert halls, on the streets and in the marketplace.
As the crowning event at the week’s end comes a concert that has emerged as a festival tradition: The Grand Performance Concert with tango orchestra Guardia Nueva. It takes place February 20 in Snellman’s Hall. The performance will feature soloists Teemu Roivainen and Saara Aalto.
Kokkola Winter Accordion is a festival for the whole family and takes place in Kokkola and Pietarsaari.
