Prepare for a blast of Cossack Viking folk rock! On stage Svjata Vatra (Holy Fire) evokes an ancient pagan rite through bagpipes, jew’s harp, scythe and husky lead vocals blown into the 21st century by shimmering trombone. The band has performed during 13 years in 20 European countries, USA and Canada, making people dance and breaking down walls by demonstrating shared roots trough music. The sixth studio album Muutused/Zminy (Changes) was released in May 2018.
Ruslan Trochynskyi – Vocal, trombone, scythe
Juhan Suits ( Juss ) – Estonian bagpipes, wooden horn, whistle, vocal,  jew’s harp
Peeter Priks – Acoustic guitar
Karl-Heinrich Arro – Drums, Percussion


Slack Bird combines Appalachian banjo tradition, Finnish melancholy and punk to a gloomy accordeon drone. The songs are stories about fighting the evil, adventures on mountains and chilling out with Saimaa ringed seals. A big yellow suitcase keeps on the heartbeat.
Dave Klas – vocals, banjo
Susanna Leppänen – vocals, accordeon
