The people of Tampere are in for a treat on Wednesday 5th February. The local celtic folk rock troupes Greenrose Faire and Sorrowhearts join with fakir Jari Tapanainen for a night to remember.
Fakir, escape artist and sword swallower Jari Tapanainen brings sense of danger and adventure. For over ten years, Tapanainen has been touring Finland as an escape artist, a fakir and a sword swallower. Jari has become famous among the Finns after numerous spectacular escape performances, not only on the ground but also in the elements of air and water. In addition, his demanding and dangerous acts have been praised by performance artists from all over the world.
Sorrowhearts opens the evening’s musical menu. The band, working now on their third album, offers an engaging combination of straight rock and Irish shenanigans.
Hosting the evening, Greenrose Faire promises to offer the finest tunes out of their latest album “My Home Is Where My Heart Is” as well as some new material.
A limited number of advance tickets are available at the Shoppe.
21:00 Jari Tapanainen – Fakir & escape artist

Très bon album, frais et varié dans ses ambiances, de la part de GREENROSE FAIRE.

All the songs on My Home Is Where My Heart Is are ditty-esque bouncy affairs, effortlessly transporting the listener to another time and place, where merriment was as abundant as ale, and perfectly roasted legs of lamb were swung in the air to the rousing beat of drunken singing.

What a weekend! The medieval times at Häme Castle are over, and the new album was published and properly celebrated. It seems the record played in quite a many cars on their way home.
Thanks once again to the crowd at all four shows, as well as the friends and strangers who turned up at our stall for a chat or even to do some shopping. Thanks belong also to the “mixed folks” who borrowed their campsite for our video shooting, to the fellow musicians and performers at the fair, and, above all, the event organizers. Great event, hoping to make it again next year.
Next weekend we head towards the Wuosisatamarkkinat at Vihti, see you there!

Finnish folk rock band Greenrose Faire will release their new full-length album called My Home Is Where My Heart Is at Häme Medieval Fair on 16th August 2013. The fresh album contains 11 songs that take the listener on a journey through the stormy mountains, flowing rivers and green valleys.
Bubbling with celtic and medieval influences, Greenrose Faire published their previous album Neverending Journey in 2011. The single from the upcoming album is the title track, My Home Is Where My Heart Is, and it can be heard now! Legendary British producer Stuart Epps (worked with e.g. Led Zeppelin, Elton John, Robbie Williams) mixed two of the songs that ended up on the album, including the single and also the opening track, The Storm.
Using various instruments, the skillfully built sound-scape opens the doors into the past with style and a twist. My Home Is Where My Heart Is is a magical, engrossing and atmospheric experience, bringing new life to the genre.

The year starts with our violinist Nona moving aside due to her other engagements. We have however the great joy to announce that Anni Latva-Pukkila will be joining us on the violin already at the Kotka shows, and of course at working towards the new album.
Our thanks best wishes go to Nona, and equally warm welcome to Anni!
