ATTENTION There has been a change of venue from the UU Church to the Big Red Church.

The famous musical Järvelä family hails from Kaustinen, Finland. The male line of Järvelä fiddlers have been fiddling since Juho Järvelä (1794-1837) This is bested only by their grandma Martta's side with ancestor Juho Wirkkala. Juho got a 5 mark fine for playing fiddle in a dance one Sunday eve in 1726. 7:30 PM Doors open at 7PM All Ages Kids under 12 free 559-307-3610

Fiddling friend Bruce Molsky enthuses: "Thanks to Arto and Antti for allowing us a peek into this sweet musical family affair. Although grounded in the music with which they grew up, you can see here how they've each grown to embrace and embellish on everything musical around them. Schottische. Waltz. Polska. The result is far-reaching, soulful and intimate. Each piece is bright and visual, a mini-journey to some interesting and far-away place. These are tunes worth listening to over and over again!" -- Bruce Molsky
