Skiffle music puts your grandmother’s old washboard and suitcase to work, because only your imagination sets limits to the instruments of entertainment! This is a genre where watering cans become trumpets and old wooden crates provide the rhythm section. Kihveli Soikoon is the world’s only sustained international skiffle music festival.
