Finland’s long-standing brass band tradition started with military bands accompanying kings and czars or leading soldiers as they marched, but it quickly evolved into entertainment for the common people at folk dances and hunting parties, and then into the world of jazz. It even followed Finnish immigrants to America. The highly-acclaimed Cascadia Brass returns to Mostly Nordic to take us on a tour of the Finnish brass ensemble tradition throughout its evolution and history. It is certain to be a blast!
