February 13 Larry Peninsula duo (Valentine’s Day pre-party)
Helsinki-based Larry Peninsula has toured not only in Finland but also in the United States, Sweden and Russia. Peninsula’s début album “Country Music Only” received great reviews both in Finland and the USA. As a versatile artist, Larry has also collaborated with leading artists, such as the single “Kantriäijät” released with Mikko Alatalo, and has composed the official race track for the 2019 Gold Rinsing Championships. In Bar Haven, Larry Peninsula performs with talented guitarist Tuomas Metsberg.
February 27 Mika Kuokkanen & Jere Ijäs
Hoedown band’s motor Mika Kuokkanen and Hoedown’s newest member Jere Ijäs made their first duo gig in December 2019 and are continuing their well-begun musical journey into the new decade!
In addition to their own solo careers, these two singer-songwriters have been in many different compositions and toured overseas, especially in the United States. Mika & Jere duo's idea is that they both play their own songs in Finnish and English, including lesser works, and of course a few Hoedown rallies. Strong ambiance, new breezes and musical galore in a great place, welcome!
March 12 Janne Kaunisto duo
Tonight's Bar Haven After Play artist will be Janne Kaunisto. Janne continues the old Finnish tradition by translating old American strings into Finnish. The material presented at the gigs bows to Juice, Jussi Raittinen and the Freukers.
March 26 Sami Saari
A true Finnish pop and soul legend, Saari performs some of his most beloved hits from his career on this intimate club gig.
