Jazz Finland tours keep Finnish stages action-packed until May

entry-image

In the spring season of 2019, Jazz Finland produces and supports tours for five Finnish jazz acts and one French ensemble. The French-Finnish double-bill tour ’Free voices and sounds’ celebrates two decades of co-operation!

Jazz Finland’s own productions this season are the first tour, Gourmet in February and the last one, Jere Haakana Varjosto in May. The co-produced and supported tours include OK:KO in late February (We Jazz Ltd) and Signe in March (Raitala Music). The 20th-anniversary Free voices and sounds (Vapaat äänet) tour in April headlines two quartets, the Finnish Maxxxtet and the French Spring Roll.
