Welcome Meiju and Mikko

photo: Raisa Taurinka

Here is the 2020 lineup for Greenrose Faire! The new faces in the band are Meiju Enho taking over the keyboards and Mikko Gynther on the bass.

Meiju already filled in at some shows last summer, and after that we could imagine no one else on the keyboards. Meiju can also be spotted as the frontwoman of Mamyth.

Mikko, who takes on the bass maestro’s role, completes the ensemble with his specially tuned bass and sense of humor. Mikko has been following the band from the audience for years and now gets to bring his own spice into the mix.

10th Anniversary Concert

Our festival year, or one could even say the festival decade, culminates in a concert hall on Saturday 18th November at the atmospheric Hällä theater in the very center of Tampere.

Playing in a theater setting opens some new possibilities for us to play a more varied selection of songs than we would on a rowdy pub or outdoor stage, so we will dive into the best pieces, and there are certainly very specially special guests as well.

The doors open at 19:00, showtime is at 20:00. Duration about 2 hours, including an interval.

Tickets are sold through Lippupiste, or

You’re warmly welcome to spend a night to remember with us!

Medieval Folk Fest 2017 broke records

Sorrowhearts at Medieval Folk Fest 2017

Medieval Folk Fest was celebrated at the Tampere Stable Yard in an exceptionally beautiful weather for this summer, and with an estimated 4500 visitors broke all the past years’ records.

Big thanks to all the great performers! Sorrowhearts and O’Rives, old friends from previous years were in good shape also this time around, as did Rachel Rodwell and Richie Raja-Aho who very rarely perform together. Great thanks also to the new acquaintances, wonderful Mamyth for whom this was their first ever show in Tampere, as well as Mauve Claret for whom this was their first show ever, period. In addition, we would like to thank the participating artisans and merchants, of whom there was also a record number, the staff of Tallipiha, and most of all the visitors!

Greenrose Faire had the pleasure of hosting the festivities, as well as celebrating their brand new 10th anniversary compilation album “Decade of Songs and Stories“.

Keep an eye open for next year’s festival, for they be a-coming!
