Bio / info
JPP is a group of Finnish folk musicians, mainly fiddlers, hailing from Kaustinen. The name originally meant Järvelän Pikkupelimannit, the small fiddlers of Järvelä, but today the group only uses the abbreviation JPP. The group still uses the Kaustinen traditional settings with fiddles, harmonium and double bass, although their arrangements are more advanced than earlier generations of traditional musicians in the area used. The group's repertoire consists of traditional tunes as well as newly written items in the old style dance rhythms - polskas, waltzes, schottisches etc. - but also some Finnish style tangos, and you can hear some jazz and bluegrass influences as well. The main part of the group's own compositions and arrangements are made by the group members Arto Järvelä and Timo Alakotila.
