We are supporting Timo Rautiainen & Trio Niskalaukaus in Tampere 18.11.

Two weeks ago, just when we were packing to go to Poland for WOMEX 2017 I got a call from Timo Rautiainen, a pioneer of Finnish heavy rock – and nowadays also a folk musician!

He invited Ritva Nero to perform as supporting act for his band Timo Rautiainen & Trio Niskalaukaus in Tampere 18th of November at Pakkahuone!  The band made a comeback last summer after being on a break for more than ten years. Now they have released a new critically acclaimed album Lauluja Suomesta. 

And we also have new tunes to perform!!

The first WOMEX (World music expo) of Ritva Nero was a success – we connected with cool agencies and festivals from Europe and made new friends all over the world. Looking forward to 2018 and -19! B)
