Crosscountry 50km CD cover

English press-releaseMySpace

Two talented and diverse musicians, Samuli Karjalainen and Eero Grundström formed a duo in the spring of 2007. The compositions of Karjalainen and Grundström draw inspiration from ancient Finnish traditions and Celtic music. The virtuoso improviser and pump-organ player Eero Grundström colours the songs with breaths of Finnish, Ingrian and Swedish folk music. The simple melodies give plenty of space for spontaneity and improvisation. When playing music Karjalainen and Grundström focus on the process itself instead of striving for perfect results.
