Vellamo - Finnish folk group perform at Bracknell Library

3pm on Monday 26 September

To coincide with Bracknell Library’s 45th anniversary at its current home, Finnish folk duo, Vellamo will be performing live at the Central Library.

Tickets are £1 and can be obtained from the first floor of Bracknell Library or bought on the day.

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 folksong with an appealing 'retro' sensibility, creating a modern folk music experience.
