"J-P's suberb technique and unique ability to mix fingerstyle guitar and modern folk music has left me in awe. He is taking the guitar to new places!" - Petteri Sariola, fingerstyle virtuoso
J-P Piirainen has become one of the most interesting and renewing solo performers in Finnish folk music. He's a talented solo guitarist and folkmusician from Joensuu, Finland. His two passions, guitar music and skandinavian folkmusic, has led him to explore different styles of playing guitar. These styles are combined with Nordic folkmusic, creating a totally new, groovy and interesting style of guitar music. Playing both his own compositions and traditional nordic tunes, he brings a new twist to not only Nordic folk music, but also the world of guitar music.
