Kaustinen’s Tallari is a music group within folk music with a long and distinguished history. In 2016, the group will celebrate its 30-year anniversary. The current lineup features Katri Haukilahti, Sampo Korvatunturi and Ritva Talvitie. Its main focus is traditional folk as well as boundary-crossing, innovative sounds.
The accordion has played a major role in Tallari’s music from the start and continues to do so. The evening’s performance will find the sweet clang of the two row diatonic accordion paired with strong rhythms. Expect to hear – in addition to enjoyable polkas – waltzes, jenkkor and heartfelt compositions from France, England and Sweden. An emotional experience is guaranteed.
MäSä duo emerged from the termination chaos of the Kaustinen Folk Festival. It wasn’t long before their Southern Ostrobothnian charms had audiences up on their feet, something easily accomplished with their rich and joyful music. (If the atmosphere is just right, the boys might even start singing.) A performance is peppered with banter as well as jokes and stories from real life.
MäSä Duo consists of Lauri Kotamäki on the 2.5 row accordion (Pirulainen, 5/5, Haka) and Kyösti Järvela on violin. (Pirulainen, Bill Hota & Pulver).
