Reval Folk invites everyone to listen to some truly Estonian music. On the 20th of April at 7pm we have the honour of welcoming the the king of Estonian squeezebox – Juhan Uppin – to Old Town Music House in Tallinn.

The concert hall of Old Town Music House (Vanalinna Muusikamaja) is a very special place for Juhan Uppin, because his musical career started from here. Before he even entered school, he started learning the traditional Estonian harp (väikekannel) from Tuule Kann. This is also a reason why he will make a gesture for väikekannel on his concert. He will also play squeezebox tunes from his fourth solo album, which will be released soon.

The concert will be introduced by Juhan’s first teacher – Tuule Kann, and by Ekke Madis Tombu, a 7th grade student from Collegium Educationis Revaliae (Old Town Educational College in Tallinn).

The evening will finish with a jam session by the Squeezebox Club of Tallinn.

With this concert Reval Folk also celebrates Estonia’s 100th birthday. This will be the 6th Reval Folk concert this season.

The doors open at 6pm.

Café “Koloniaal” will be on location to guarantee your comfort if you arrive earlier. You are also very welcome to join the concert with your families! During the concert we have activities for children if they feel uncomfortable in the main hall.

As usual, the tickets from presales cost less (until 12th of April) and you can purchase them HERE

Preschool children will get in free of charge.

See you there!

Organizer

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. Lähem info: www.revalfolk.ee ja www.facebook.com/revalfolk IN ENGLISH Reval Folk is a civic initiative that began in cooperation with NGO Reval Folk and the folk music department of the Tallinn-based Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre. 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
