Rootsinpyhtää Bluegrass 2024

Rootsinpyhtää Bluegrass 2024 Tickets

Welcome to Rootsinpyhtää

Rootsinpyhtaa, the longest standing festival of traditional American Appalachian music in Finland, was started in 1988. We have had many American and European guests performing at the festival, including great names such as Hot Rize, Rhonda Vincent, James King, Don Rigsby, Dudley Connell, etc. to name a few.

Since 2005 the festival has combined American traditional music with it's historical culture. Old Time and Bluegrass music originated after all in the Old World. Rootsinpyhtaa is a festival celebrating European emigrants who took their culture over the Atlantic to America, where it developed into what we know as Bluegrass today. Re-enactors from the Classic Old Western Society recreate the history of old America in the idyllic iron works milieu of 18th century Ruotsinpyhtää - a perfect setting for wonderful acoustic music in a genuinely old timey atmosphere.


The festival will be held 7th-9th of June, 2024 at Ruotsinpyhtää, about 100 km east from Helsinki.


This year there will be an opportunity to hear hard-driving old-time music by Stuart, Spence & Shebish (USA) and original acoustic music by Jumper Cables (Czech) among many other great bands.

For the most up to date complete program of performing bands and times see rootsinpyhtaa.fi. The schedule may be subject to some changes before the festival.

The festival begins with an evening concert on Friday night. It continues on the main festival stage on Saturday. Another evening concert will be held on Saturday evening. The festival ends with a traditional bluegrass gospel style concert in the local "little white church on the hill". Absolute perfection for a genuine bluegrass experience.


The evening concerts have a minimum age requirement of 18 after 10pm due to regulations regarding alcohol at the venues. Children under 12 are admitted free of charge to the main concert on Saturday when accompanied by a paying adult.
