Last night Barry Mitterhoff and I played at Logomo in Turku. Another fabulous Finnish venue! I just can’t say enough about our Finnish Experience! Here is our set list from Last night:

We got up at an ungodly hour and headed out to the airport. Thanks Pekka for the rides and the good company! Anyway, an hour or so later we found ourselves in Stockholm where it is cold and raining. Tomorrow we play Gota Kallare here in Stockholm and I must say I’m really looking forward to it.

I had planned on walking around, but I made the mistake of lying down for a nap and before I knew it, the whole day had passed. I guess I needed it… and tomorrow’s another day.

Good times!

    Thanks Jorma and Barry,

    I really love your show – and please, put “Don’t leave me” on record!

    Father & son from Norway was up early too. We just arrived Stockholm and sure look forward for tomorrows show. Sorry about the rain, it should be snow here in Scandinavia now, – the “Christmas rule” says so.

    Dear Jorma,
    Rest up- you will need it for Stockholm, and definitely for the Beacon!
    See you next Saturday night:)

    Hey Jorma – Turku! the oldest city in Finland AND one of the two Capitals of European Culture in 2011. Clearly that designation achieved a new azimuth on Dec. 2nd! Looking forward to seeing you at the Double Dose workshop in March…I’ll bring my sunburst Jorma M30 🙂

    Yikes – it’s also the “official Christmas City of Finland” – I hope you brought a passel of the Jorma Xmas CD to sell at the show! If it weren’t so snowy this time of year ( & if Finland was bit easier on dog entry – even though our new puppy is named “Odin”, I don’t think Finnish Customs will cut him any slack), we’d fly over & do a Jorma tour in the Jefferson Campervan, which currently resides in Amsterdam.

    Dear Jorma,

    What a fantastic experience to, for the first time, witness an artist whose music has been a joy and consolation through the years. There are some things which get just better the older they get: Good wines and, most certainly, Jorma Kaukonen!
    It was a special pleasure that you decided to perform in three for me personally dear cities: Vasa/Vaasa (my home town), Åbo/Turku (the city of my student days) and Helsingfors/Helsinki, where I live nowadays.
    We are now eagerly waiting for the great Sir Paul McCartney to arrive in Helsinki, but somehow I feel that the best already was heard. See you some fine day in south-eastern Ohio:-)

    Great gig in Turku. We had a really great time. “Embryonic Journey” was excellent!
