|Kaivama: Finnish-American Excavators|
Finnish-American multi-instrumentalists Sara Pajunen and Jonathan Rundman explore a shared Nordic heritage in their new folk duo called KAIVAMA. Each were born and raised in Finnish-immigrant epicenters not far from the shores of Lake Superior. Pajunen’s hometown of Hibbing, MN and Rundman’s own Ishpeming, MI are famous for vast open-pit iron ore mines, and the band’s name reflects this spirit of excavation. “Kaivama” is a Finnish word stemming from 'kaivaa:' to delve or dig.

Performances will be in the theater lobby on Saturday, November 20th from 4.15-4.45 and Sunday November 21 from 8.15-8.45!
