In February, I travelled to Finland. It wasn’t my first time there, but it was my first time to perform in Helsinki and Turku. In Turku I performed with Lauri Hyvärinen at Bar Ö, and in Helsinki I performed with Johannes Sarjasto at Third Space. They were both fully improvised sets that were partially captured on video:
Now that I think about it, it was also my first time playing with Finns. I really like playing with local musicians when I travel for a show. It’s new and fun and exciting every time, and I always learn something.
