Folk Musicians Perform at NMU

Friday 30, 2015

Two folk music acts—the duo Alloatar and singer/songwriter Eli Hebel—will perform a Beaumier Coffee House concert at Northern Michigan University. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 7, in Reynolds Recital Hall. Admission is free.

 Aallotar is a musical collaboration between Finnish-American violinist Sara Pajunen and Finnish accordionist Teija Niku. The transatlantic collaboration revisits the earlier days of Finnish folk music to make a freshly minted sound.

Eli Hebl is a freshman at NMU from Two Harbors, Minn. Hebl will showcase his extensive experience as a performer and songwriter as he plays his original and soothing folk music.

This event kicks off the Beaumier Heritage Center’s celebration, FINNtastic February, which celebrates the traditions, culture and people of Finland. For more information, contact the Beaumier Upper Peninsula Heritage Center at 227-3212.
