The Nordic Harp Meeting 2015 will start on Thursday, 15th October at the LUMO centre in Turku at 4 p.m. with a welcome speech. After that, you can meet old and new friends, have snacks, sauna and jamming ad libitum.
From 8 p.m. onwards, there will be an occasion to spend a Scottish Night at the bar Sointu, on Linnankatu in the centre of Turku; the performers will be both Vincent Michaud and the Scottish music band “Devil & Dundee”. Vincent has a special approach to his part of the night: the audience can write a note on a paper to give a hint about the thing they’d like to hear, and Vincent will pick a number of these requests and improvise upon them. The band Devil & Dundee consists largely of familiar people from the meeting, with some others… performing Scottish traditional songs (perhaps with some Finnish flair).
The official programme will start on Friday morning at 9 a.m. with workshops, lectures, concerts etc, and continue until Sunday afternoon with open end.
We reserve the right to make changes until the final programme is printed on Thursday 15 October 2015.
