Mikko Herranen and Herrasmiehet
Saturday June 17th at 5 pm
Mikko Herranen is a musician, music producer and artist with a long career. Herranen lives music to the fullest, it is work, a hobby and a lifestyle.
Some may remember Mikko from early 2000s metal bands Velcra, Rust, Mauren Maiden. Others, perhaps, as the fully hurling interpreter in the first season of Voice Of Finland. Herranen is an entertainer who breaks music genre boundaries at thousands of parties, a singing drummer in a thrash-metal band, an interpreter of tender emotions, a music producer and an alternative artist who takes a stand with a serious mind. He is versatile. Herranen was born blind and is an excellent example of how music removes barriers of difference between people, and how hard work can make dreams come true from any starting point.
In the concert, you will hear both new and old songs from Herranen. This is a special year for Herranen, because he will release two albums of solo material in the same year: during the spring, the album ”Shadows” and in the fall, the album “The massive climax of unconventionality and reason”. Come and experience what rock music is when real people do it with strong emotion and heart.
In this concert, we celebrate the release of the album ”Shadows” and rock so the bass shakes our sternums, just like when rock music was still new and mysterious. Don’t miss it!
Please note, that the gig will be loud. We recommend protecting your hearing and there will be some ear plugs available. It may also be best to leave service dogs at home or listen to the gig from distance with them.
