Finlandia University’s Finnish American Heritage Center announces the second Finnish Folk Music Camp in Hancock, Michigan, July 17-19, 2012.
Traditional Finnish music still permeates the lakes and forests of Michigan’s Copper Country, where Finnish-American identity vibrantly lives on. From Saturday evening sauna to specialty comfort foods, folks carry on their Finnish traditions as part of everyday life. Central to Finnish American cultural life are those who play traditional Finnish music at festivals and weddings, in humble kitchens, on stylish patios, and even along the pristine shores of Lake Superior. Finlandia University’s Finnish Council in America and the Finnish American Heritage Center are excited to arrange this second annual Finnish traditional music camp opportunity.
You can join for classes in traditional music performance and folk arts on the campus of Finlandia University taught by some of the best-loved artists in the Finnish American community.
There is also kantele workshops included!
