Finn Hall (also known as “the Minnesota Pelimannit”) performs traditional Finnish and Finnish-American dance music, including both folk tunes and styles popularized in the 50’s and 60’s. Though based in Minnesota, the band has also appeared at festivals in other states and venues throughout Finland, and they've accompanied the Twin Cities Finnish folkdance group Kisarit. Reflections/Muistelmia, the first full-length Finn Hall CD, was released in 2002. You can also find them on the 1997 video The Old Finn Hall Variety Show, Parts I & II, and on several tracks of Koivun Kaiku's beautiful holiday CD A Finnish American Christmas (1998). Finn Hall brings the spirited music central to Finnish-American social life from the late 1800s through the 1950s resoundingly into the 21st century!
