About Arto Järvelä:

 

Multi-instrumentalist and composer, Arto Järvelä is one of Finland's most accomplished folk musicians and a third generation fiddler in the Kaustinen tradition. He has represented Finnish music and culture in more than 30 countries and returns to the United States after previous tours with the legendary Finnish fiddle band JPP, as well as a solo 2009 artist-in-residence position at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago. 

 

About Kaivama:

 

Finnish-American musicians Sara Pajunen and Jonathan Rundman have teamed up to form a new folk music duo called KAIVAMA. The name KAIVAMA stems from the Finnish word “kaivaa:” to delve or dig. Pajunen’s unique prowess on the fiddle and Rundman’s versatility on guitar, harmonium, piano, and banjo allow KAIVAMA to explore a surprising variety of sonic textures. Audiences from performance halls to folk festivals to rock clubs are captivated by this duo’s instrumental skill and fresh approach in creating music that is alternately joyous, primitive, experimental, haunting, and time-honored.

 

Arto Järvelä and Kaivama are available for interviews and in-studio radio/TV appearances. To schedule a phone or email interview, please email kaivama@gmail.com or call 612-382-5299.
