Winter is going. . .

The winter months are always quiet but now spring is just around the corner and so is St. PATRICK's DAY! For our traditional concert on the day, Sat. March 17th we are again returning to O'Connell's in Tampere for our eighth consecutive Pady's bash there, so come on down!

Our near equally traditional Paddy's concert in Kuopio has undergone a change of venue: since Pannari is undergoing renovations and besides wouldn't fit everybody the show on Friday March 16th will be in Ravintola OTTOPOIKA. And also traditionally our good friends 7 Stout Clan are certainly be in attendance, as well.

What's more, Aapo a.k.a. Cap'n Snipes willl be giving a solo concert with some sweet Celtic ballads &c. on Fri March 2nd at Cafe Kotikeidas in Riistavesi.

We look forward to announcing further 2018 shows for the spring and summer soon.


Last Concert of 2017

Könönpellon baari in Varkaus is hosting us on Saturday Oct 14th. This will in all likelyhood be our last gig for the year. Hope you will make it down!

So Many Gigs

. . . too many to name here but we have many fantastic performance opportunities still ahead of us in 2017. Check OUT ALL 10 GIGS!
Truly, we've never had so many concerts lined up at given moment in time. Sure, we know where we'll be for Paddy's Day ´18, but this is just. . .Great! Fokken' brilliant! Of course, it helps a lot that we've ourselfs become more available owing to a fair number of able bodied souls standing in reserve, should some of the regular cast succumb to multiple bookings. And aye, it's a philosophical growth, as well.

It's not that we didn't have anything to report. Just that our web-updating capabilities were quite broken. All our shows in early 2016, not to mention St. Patrick's Day, sailed totally by this website quite unseen. Ah well, if you were there, as quite a lot of you were, I'm sure you'll remember it just as well as we do. Thanks!
