Hi I don't know if this site will have what you want but it's a great site anyway, with lots of tunes from all over the world. Unfortunately the tunes have to be downloaded rather than being played from the site.

When I first read the title of the thread, I wasn't sure if "Finn" was for "Finnish" or if it was the Irish last name. :) Well, If you are looking for Finnish Folk songs, why not try the Finnish Folk Music Association? I don't know if they'll have all that you're looking for, but here's their web address:

Good luck w/your search.

cheers, Ireland

Thank you Ireland.Tried the Finnish Page but the English version is still under constuction. AS for down loading ,no need, for I have the music .It simply would make it more interesting to know the words.

I'm a Finn, I sing songs in English, ok, what now? Kinda like I don't have a drinking problem. I drink, I fall down, no problem. Barry Finn

This rather amazing video of the acapella group Loituma (singing "Ievan Polkka") has subtitles. You'd probably need them even if you spoke Finnish.
