J-P Piirainen has become one of the most interesting and renewing solo performers in Finnish folk music. He's a talented solo guitarist and folk musician from Joensuu, Finland. His two passions, guitar music and Scandinavian folk music, has led him to explore different styles of playing guitar. These styles are combined with Nordic folk music, creating a totally new, groovy and interesting style of guitar music. Playing both his own compositions and traditional Nordic tunes, he brings a new twist to not only Nordic folk music, but also the world of guitar music.
