THU 15.8. 19:00 Night of the Arts: Pekko Käppi & K:H:H:L + Laura Moisio, Kielo Kärkkäinen, Ismaila Sané

Pekko Käppi & K:H:H:L is a Tampere-based group, arguably the hottest and loudest four-piece in the Finnish folk-rock scene, whose fifth album Credo was released in 2023. Built around the well-known jouhikko artist and singer-songwriter Pekko Käppi, the ensemble plays with a breezy folk expression, an earthy blues feel and a psychedelic-influenced rock groove. The result is delightful folk music, served as a unique blend of approachable pop and folk. The group’s live performances lapse into hypnotic moods without warning, like a dog chasing its own tail against a background of fierce rock preaching. In the Night of the Arts, expect things to rev up another notch when the foursome is joined by Laura Moisio, Kielo Kärkkäinen and Ismaila Sané!
