company descriptionJuurakko serves a delightful combination of Finnish and Afro-American roots music with vivid storytelling and rakish skiffle spirit. Highly skilled a cappella blues singing in Finnish is combined with exotic instruments like the kantele, the harmonium, the bowed lyre, the cigar box guitar, a coffee mug and a suitcase. The music of Juurakko invites you to a waltz with an old sailor, takes you to an island of unwanted people and brings earthy echoes from the Deep South.
