Date: August 26, 2014

Time: 7:00 PM

City: Helsinki, Finland

Venue: Huvila Festival Tent

Presenter: Helsinki Festival


Accordion virtuoso Kimmo Pohjonen turns 50 this August and will be celebrating his half-century at Huvila with an appropriately starry guest line up. The birthday concert is an opportunity to hear Pohjonen re-visit his earlier collaborations with a number of big names, among them the legendary US-based Kronos Quartet.

The evening will consist of a series of performances by a number of acts from a Pohjonen solo appearance to guest performances by violinist Pekka Kuusisto and sampling guru Samuli Kosminen. A decade ago, Pohjonen, Kosminen and the Kronos Quartet’s widely lauded Uniko premiered at Huvila. Their collaboration now continues with brand new material.
