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.
Finland’s largest wintertime folklore event for all lovers of folk music and dance is backed by the main organisations, events and educational institutions in the field. Our 20th cruise will enjoy the hospitality of the newest TallinkSilja ferry, the Baltic Queen.
