“un” Album Release Concert / Clinic Tour in Finland Feb 4-15 2013

Dear Friends,

It’s taken literally months of planning and juggling, so I’m thrilled to announce that to celebrate the release of un in Finland on Jan 25 2013, we’ll be doing an album release tour of concerts and clinics throughout the country from Feb 4 through 15 2013 with the quintet.

The performances will take us all around the country’s clubs and concert halls, and will be augmented with clinics at various conservatories. Joining us for the concerts will be very special guest and dear friend Eva Louhivuori, who appears on the album as well on the track “Kaiku”.

I’ll be posting more specific information in the coming weeks on where to buy tickets and exact starting times and so forth; meanwhile, please mark your calendars and spread the word. I haven’t played in Finland since 2008 and in my hometown Rovaniemi since 1999, so on a personal level, it means so much to me to get to go back to play this music.
