HANCOCK -- Close out your Heikinpäivä midwinter holiday by sliding down to the Copper Island Beach Club in Hancock, bottom of Tezcuco Street, for an old-time Finnish jam and open-mike session from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. TONIGHT, Saturday, Jan. 26.
Musicians, Oren Tikkanen says, "Bring your 'cordean or fiddle, sing some old-time songs (Finnish or otherwise). Maybe we'll sing some old Labor Songs (Finnish, English, or whatever language you got) in commemoration of the 1913 Strike. Let's try to keep it acoustic, or at least semi-, so's the Emäntä (Sweet Mary K.) doesn't throw us out."
And bring your dancing shoes. The Finn Hall Band from MN has agreed to take the first slot from 8 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Contact Oren Tikkanen at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to guarantee yourself a time to play.
