    "Poijat" observes its 28th year in 2018 with concerts in Minnesota, following extensive touring recently including to San José, California, Buffalo, New York, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and two weeks in Finland. They have been presenting music in concerts, at ethnic festivals, in regional tours, at music conferences, recreating authentic social dance music along with concert repertoire from a bygone era. “Poijat” was formed in Northfield, Minnesota, in January 1990, by Northfielder Paul Niemistö and made its first concert tour to a Finnish ethnic festival in Florida the next spring, and then made its first trip to Finland in 1992 for the Finnish 75 anniversary/. They returned to Finland last year to help celebrate the Centennial of this Nordic nation.

    During the 1980's, Paul Niemistö made contact with many Finnish brass players, thereby discovering this relatively unknown musical tradition. Members of Ameriikan poijat are musicians and teachers are from greater Minnesota, a region where many Nordic settlers arrived, Finns especially in the north. Ameriikan poijat has developed programming around beautiful old concert music and dance arrangements, and has enjoyed wide popularity among Finnish American music lovers and festival goers. Much of the music played by Ameriikan poijat is quite familiar to Finnish immigrants, being many of the same pieces heard played by accordions or dance orchestras. They have released four CDs and also have published their sheet music.

    thenewstandardsJazz trio The New Standards riff off pop songs by Brittany Spears, Adam Ant and Kurt Weill, allowing a little nuttiness into the show while staying serious about their musicianship

    The New Standards aren’t a cover band, but operate more on the model of jazz bands in the ’50s and ’60s that utilized popular songs of the day to riff off of.

    Started in 2005 as an off-shoot project between Minneapolis based musicians and friends Chan Poling (piano), Steve Roehm (vibes) and John Munson (bass), TNS has grown into a globe-(more…)

    Critically acclaimed and with a star-studded “played with” list, Shawn Phillips has the goods. Audiences will thrill to his voice and guitar on Fri. Oct. 19, at 7:30 p.m. at the State Theatre.

    Shawn Phillips is one of most fascinating and enigmatic musicians to come out of the early-'70s singer/songwriter boom. The mere fact that he was a musician as much as a singer and songwriter made him stand out, and helped him attract a dedicated following. His refusal to shape his music -- which crosses between folk-rock, jazz, progressive, pop, and classical -- to anyone else's expectations allowed him to hold onto a large and dedicated cult following, without ever achieving the stardom that his talent seemed to merit.

    His most recently released album is “Continuance” (2017) and he’s working on a new studio (more…)
