What are we going to do

We will learn one traditional song from the ancient Karelian and Finnish tradition. This poetic and mythic song is from the Finnish folk poetry archives and both the melody and words originate from the 19th Century. We will also hear the mythic, cultural and historical background of the song. The theme of the song can also be found in the Kalevala - the national epic of Karelia and Finland. You will get a recording of the song through email.

About Eero - the Doer

My history as a performer reaches back over 30 years. Working with voice has always been a central part of my life. I have been singing in choirs and folk music groups, and these days I perform mainly as a solo artist. I enjoy all kinds of music, but especially folk music, traditional and world music. My favourite theatre forms are Playback Theatre and musical theatre. I have a long history as a voice, speech and performance coach and as a performing artist.
