Särkkä. She has a PhD in forensic psychology and, when not singing, is working as an investigative psychologist as well as lecturing and conducting research. Jan-Erik Mansikka is a researcher and lecturer in education at the University of Helsinki as well as a musician. He studied piano at the Oulunkylän Pop-jazz Conservatory and holds a PhD in education. He has been actively involved in a numbers of different theatre-music projects over the years. In recent years he has been joyfully involved in making music to improvisation theatre. – For me the core of music lies definitely in the art of improvisation, in the spirit of Keith Jarrett. Jukka Särkkä teaches classical guitar at the Keski-Helsingin Musiikkiopisto, and plays guitar, mandolin and banjo at the Finnish National Opera. He is also a composer and arranger and has written works for wind orchestra, piano, and various chamber groups. Jukka Särkkä plays bluegrass with The Clayhill Brothers.
