Vellamo: Finnish Folk Music Duo | Saturday, September 23 - 10:00am | Community Room


You’ll delight in the haunting melodies and ballads, vocals and virtuosic guitar stylings of Pia Leinonen and Joni Tiala, the Finnish folk duo, Vellamo. In addition to performing in the Finnish, Celtic and Scandinavian folk traditions, they also compose memorable original songs.

In Finnish mythology, Vellamo is the goddess of the sea. Based in Kokkola, on the western coast of Finland, Pia and Joni combine the rich tradition of Finnish folksong with an appealing “retro” sensibility, creating an exotic and magical acoustic experience.

Raised in the arctic region of Lapland, Pia is Vellamo’s lead singer. Combining her love and vast knowledge of Finnish folk music with the western singer– songwriter tradition, her exquisite voice evokes creative expression.

Originally from the Finnish port of Kokkola, Joni Tiala’s eclectic musical background includes writing and performing for theater, progressive and alternative rock, and Finnish and western folk.

Their current tour is their seventh visit to the U.S. and will take them from New England to the Pacific Northwest.
