Tuulikki Bartosik with Timo Alakotila
Tuulikki Bartosik & Timo Alakotila tour in the UK for the first time as a duo, Tuulikki being previously known for her concerts with Hannah James and Timo with Karen Tweed. The dynamic and versatile duo will play Bartosik's music from the album Storied Sounds with some occasional traditional tunes from Scandinavia and Estonia.
"Storied Sounds from Tuulikki Bartosik - fascinating melange of music and sound. (...) Whether these tacks evoke memories or prompt imaginings doesn't really matter, what matters is the ability of this album to take you places ... back to a past or forward into a future and that's certainly achieved." Tim Carroll, FolkWords
"One of the joys of this record [Storied Sounds] is that it demonstrates that musical traditions are effectively pointless if they do not evolve or are never brought to new audiences. In the same way that the idea of home could not exist without the possibility of travel, tradition means nothing without evolution. Storied Sounds encapsulates this concept with breathtaking simplicity and vibrancy." Thomas Blake, folkradio.co.uk
