The Haapavesi

A lovely tune by Keith Murphy (Black Isle Music). Heard recently at a session in Austin, TX.

Re: Haapavesi

Ooh, I’m pretty sure this tune is named after a little town called Haapavesi. It’s in Finland and has Haapavesi Folk Music Festival every June, also a music camp before the fest. I wonder if Keith has been there at some point and got the inspiration from there? Anyone knows or remembers the story of this tune?

Re: Haapavesi

Keith Murphy did in fact compose the tune, which was named after the Finnish town.
