Folk music in Houtskari


Folk music in Houtskari is a very small scale festival, presenting traditional folk music in a genuine archipelago setting. Since 2006 a folk music group from Finland or Sweden has been a special guest band, performing in different locations in the western archipelago area.

The concerts are very audience-friendly in order to raise the interest for this form of traditional music culture.

The festival is arranged bya Houtskärs kulturgille (culture guild) together with the Houskär folk music band. 

2016 the Halsbrytarna "Neckbreakers" are the visiting band
