sledge Scandinavian music (was: mostly Finnish) (106* d) RE: Scandinavian music (was: mostly Finnish) 13 Sep 04

After a truly depressing 6 weeks away from home I now have something to look forward to, especially after reading through this thread again.

At the end of this month I am off to Finland for my first ever trip there. The flights, accomodation and even train tickets have been sorted out, but the highlight will be to see and hear Gjallarhorn live for the first time. I will be seeing them in Jakobstad and in their (I understand) home town of Vaasa. I missed seeing them in the UK a couple of years ago and then again last year in Groningen so a double dose is definately required.

I've been enjoying their cd's for a while now and those of Garmarna as well, shame they don't tour so often. I understand that Garmarna will be in the US on tour next year so keep your eyes peeled.

I would just like to add, that all the enquiries regarding my trip that I directed to various offices in Finland, either by email or phone, have all been answered with incredible efficiancy and friendliness, I feel as though I have been made welcome before I have even thought about heading off to the airport.
