Estonia and the Nordic people are celebrating the time of the shortest and lightest nights – it really feels like the day is endless and it’s the peak time of festivals in this region. Now it’s the time to collect some solar and musical energy for the long wintertime and tour around in interesting places.
Summer brings me first to Sommelo Music Festival taking place in Kuhmo, Finland and Russian Karelia – looking forward to play a special concert in the empty village with no electricity. Onwards we play gigs with Runorun at the famous Viljandi Folk Music Festival and in August there are many concerts in Finland and Estonia including playing exclusive solo concert at Estonia’s smallest festival at Ruhnu island in the oldest wooden building in Estonia – Ruhnu church.
