Live WMI Folktales podcast recording in the afternoon (free event)

Kardemimmit are back after their magical performance with Väsen at Littlefield in 2019, presented by WMI. This time the all-female quartet brings 15 and 38-stringed silvery-toned kanteles (the national instrument of Finland), mesmerizing harmonies, and the sounds of the Finnish forest to Scandinavia House. The concert will be preceded by a free afternoon live recording of an episode of our Folktales podcast, in which storyteller Bill Gordh will deliver a Finnish folk tale accompanied by a fully improvised musical performance by Kardemimmit. All ages welcome.

The ORIGINS series features artists who delve into the folklore and roots of their respective culture’s music to tell the story of their origins, preserving and affirming cultural identities and legacies.
