Accordionist and composer Maria Kalaniemi and pianist Timo Alakotila are trailblazers in the field of Finnish modern folk music. They have played in different ensembles and performed at many concerts around the world. Over the years Maria and Timos collaboration has formed into an outstanding and seamless musical alliance. At the concert they perform the duos own compositions and Finnish as well as Finnish-Swedish melodies, menuettos, polskas, polkas and tangos in Marias and Timos own fresh arrangements.

In 2024 Maria Kalaniemi celebrates her 60th jubilee. The summer of 2023 was also the 40th anniversary of Kalaniemi’s win in history’s first Kultainen Harmonikka-competition in 1983, which launched her into national recognition. In 2018 Kalaniemi was awarded the State prize for music and was appointed as member of the Royal Swedish Academy. The concert is a part of the jubilee year concert series.
