Medieval Folk Fest 2010

A new annual event, Medieval Folk Fest, starts this year at the Tampere Stable Yards on the 3th of July. Four local ensembles will be performing music ranging from acoustic folk, traditional irish music to medieval-influenced pop.

Medieval Folk Fest is started by Louna, a talented singer/songwriter. The festival is continued by the energetic Jhary’s Trio, performing celtic and irish music wearing kilts, of course. Greenrose Faire concludes the event with their jaunty “medieval pop”.

In addition to music, the usual Stable Yard attractions are open, including horse rides, an old-fashioned carousel, shops and cafes.

Medieval Folk Festival at Tampere Stable Yards (Kuninkaankatu 4) on 3rd July from 12.00 to 16.00. Artists start on the hour. Free admission.

Wednesday Jam

After yesterday’s practise, we visited the acoustic jam session at a local rock bar Amadeus.

The first semi-public appearance with a new ensemble is always a bit nerve-wrecking, and there was barely room for the six of us in the band corner, but the performance was well received even thought the crowd was there mainly to hear “Sweet Home Alabama” or an acoustic rendition of “Epic”. But when we were playing the second-to-last song of the night and even the bouncer… well.. bouncing up and down and grinning, I knew we were doing something right. A great night.
