Vellamo: Finnish Folk Pop

Saturday, October 21, 2017

On tour from Finland, the duo Vellamo will perform for us!

In Finnish mythology, Vellamo is the goddess of the sea.

In the world of music, Vellamo is the performing & songwriting team of Pia Leinonen and Joni Tiala. Their music is characterized by haunting melodies, ethereal vocals, and virtuosic guitar styling. They write instantly-memorable songs in English as well as in their native Finnish, and they also perform traditional ballads from the Finnish, Celtic and Scandinavian folk traditions.  

Join us, and enjoy an entertaining musical performance, as well as an introduction to the Finnish language and folk music tradition, which combines Scandinavian and Slavic influences with Finnish folklore. 

This free event is made possible thanks to the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.
