Folk music in Espoo
The roots of JuuriJuhla–RotFest are in the folk music of Espoo. But the branches are openminded and reach out for all kinds of music. Among the performers at JuuriJuhla are both folkmusicians from Espoo as well as top level Finnish and Nordic folk musicians, many already with international merits. Artistic leader of fesitval is Maria Kalaniemi.
JuuriJuhla–RotFest is one of the biggest festivals in Espoo, it was arranged for the firs time in 2003. The main venue of the festival is the Sello Hall, but JuuriJuhla–RotFest wishes as well to bring out folk music to magnificent and different venues like old mansions, churches and organization houses. Folk music for children has been an important part of the JuuriJuhla program since the start, as well as the folk music of Swedish-speaking Finland.
