The Marquette Michigan band was en route to a concert in Connecticut and performed an hour long medley of traditional Finnish folk songs using accordion, drums, guitar, spoons, voices and bones to carry the tunes to their happy ends.
The program was sponsored by the Finnish Heritage Museum's Events Committee.
