Before the peaceful time of Christmas, on the 1st of December at 19:00, there will be a performance by flute-player Säde Tatar from Estonia and mandola player Gabbi Dluzewski; an Estonian-Swedish duo from Viljandi. They are known from a band called “Fränder” who tours the world.
The main performers will be introduced by the players from Nõmme Folk-Club led by bedazzling Marika Moks. The afterprogramme will be led by a reknown singing woman and storyteller Õie Sarv and her daughter Maarja Sarv.
Säde and Gabbi will take us on a journey, which talks about the joys of tradition and creation, the search for self and finding it, and about the life of a travelling musician. The inner-burning of the duo gets its power from understanding each-others music, which manifests itself with dynamic co-playing, where different worlds and sounds melt together. We’ll be hearing traditional music from Sweden and Estonia, and creations of Säde and Gabbi.
After the concert everyone is welcome to participate in a circle of songs and stories by a reknown songwoman Õie Sarv and her daughter Maarja Sarv.
The concert will take place at the cosy Old Town Music house in Tallinn (Uus st 16c). The doors and the café will open at 18:00. There are also activities for children!
With this concert Reval Folk also celebrates Estonia’s 100th birthday and Estonian-Swedish relations. The concert is also part of the programme of European Year for Cultural Heritage.
On the same day, on the 1st of December at 12 in the midday, Säde and Gabbi will also hold a workshop on Estonian and Swedish music at Nõmme Pärimuskool (Jaama 18, Tallinn, Nõmme). Everyone regardless of their age, instrument or experience is welcome to participate. The main idea is to feel joy from playing music! Please note, that there are only a limited amount of places available for participants. More information about the workshop HERE. Please register HERE
MTÜ Reval Folk
MTÜ Reval Folk asutati 2017. aasta sügisel. Kodanikualgatuse korras sündinud kontsertide sarjas tehakse koostööd Eesti Muusika- ja Teatriakadeemia pärimusmuusika erialaga. Kontserdisarja eesmärk on tuua pärimusmuusika ja sellel põhinev autorilooming Tallinnasse. Reval Folk tutvustab muusikuid nii Eestist kui välismaalt. Soovime kasvatada huvi pärimusmuusika eriala omandamise vastu Eesti Muusika- ja Teatriakadeemias, et tagada kultuuri jätkusuutlikkus. Korraldame õpitubasid ja suviti Rõuge vallas toimuvat rahvusvahelist muusikalaagrit ning pakume kontserdivõimalusi ka mujal Eestis – nii on pärimusmuusika haaratud rohkem igapäevaellu.

Our aim is to offer people in busy Tallinn the chance to reconnect with their roots through regular folk music concerts (that offer both traditional music and music inspired by traditional music) and workshops. Our second biggest aim is to inspire young people to study folk music on a professional level in the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre. In the summer of 2018 we plan to organise an international folk music camp named “Reval Ethno” for children who are 8-16 years of age. Our aim is to eventually have a regular presence of folk music in the Tallinn music scene. More info: www.revalfolk.ee ja www.facebook.com/revalfolk
