AKS BBC4 (UK Cable TV) Finnish Folk Tonight (8) RE: BBC4 (UK Cable TV) Finnish Folk Tonight 27 Jun 02


The reason for the abbreviation of the name of the band is that the players have grown up; Järvelän (a village, 'a place by or with a lake') Pikku ('little, tiny') Pelimannit (spelman 'player men') are not so little any more, having been playing together for some twenty years now. If you want to say JPP the Finnish way, it is yih-peh-peh.

And of course it sounds a bit Celtic if one does not know the truth which is the opposite; when the Celts - as pioneers of the Indo-Europeans - came to Europe a while ago, they got lots of musical influence from the natives who were already there: the Finno-Ugrians, you know Finn Mac Cool, Fenians, leprechauns and the like ;-)
