Vellamo Concert
Tuesday, September 12th, 7pm
New Ipswich Library

Vellamo first visited the New Ipswich Library in August of 2015, and due to the popularity of the show, we have invited them back for another performance! Enjoy an entertaining musical performance and get an introduction to the Finnish language and the folk music tradition combining Scandinavian and Slavic influences with Finnish folklore.

Vellamo is led by the performing and songwriting team of Pia Leinonen and Joni Tiala. Their music is characterized by haunting melodies, Pia’s ethereal lead vocals, and Joni’s virtuosic guitar stylings. In Finnish mythology, Vellamo is the goddess of the sea. Based in Kokkola, on the western coast of Finland, Vellamo combines the rich tradition of Finnish folk song with an appealing “retro” sensibility, creating a modern folk music experience.

Pia Leinonen, originally from the arctic region of Lapland, is Vellamo’s lead singer. Her exquisite voice combines her love and vast knowledge of Finnish folk music with the western singer–songwriter tradition in a unique and beautiful way. Her moving and evocative expression has been compared to other story-centric performers such as Joan Baez and Marlene Dietrich.

Joni Tiala, originally from the Finnish port of Kokkola, began playing guitar at the age of 11. His eclectic musical background includes writing and performing for theater, progressive and alternative rock and Finnish and western folk. In addition to his work in Vellamo, Joni is an accomplished theater and session musician, and is founding member of the renowned Finnish progressive rock band, Moonwagon.

In addition to shows in their homeland, Vellamo spends half of each year touring abroad; their adventures have led them throughout the United States, Europe, and New Zealand. Vellamo’s third album “Koskenkylä”, featuring all original material, was released in November 2015.

You can learn more about the duo at their website: http://www.vellamomusic.com/index/.
