 Dear friend of Arkadia, You are heartily invited and welcome to a concert by singer and songwriter Saaramaija Markkanen on Thursday 2.12 at 6pm. She will be accompanied by double bass player Eero Tikkanen. You can’t miss it, come! Warm regards, Ian www.arkadiabookshop.fiEntrance is free and green tea will be served. A donation of €2 (or more!) is suggested and would be very welcome. Saaramaija Markkanen plays the guitar and writes songs. Before that she spentmuch time playing the flute and the saxophone, and writing poetry. You are warmly welcome to listen to her sing and hum along! She studied at the Helsinki University of Applied Sciences(Metropolia), but wanted to take some time off to renew her interest and passion in music. And she succeeded with song writing and the guitar. These folk songs are mainly in Finnish and some of them have great double bass accompaniment by hot cat Eero Tikkanen. This talented and protean bass player is originally from Jyväskylä, now living in Helsinki and studying at The Jazz Music Department of the Sibelius Academy. Eero plays in Auteur jazz, Yona & Liikkuvat pilvet and many more.
