Please note!
Most of our CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. I guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
Thanks- Cliff, cdRoots

Maria Kalaniemi and Eero Grundstrom - Svalan
Finnish accordionist and singer Maria Kalaniemi and harmonium (pump organ) player Eero Grundström have created a set of new works and reworkings of old songs from the Finno-Swedish tradition. They range from the lyrical to the challenging, and touch on both the east and west, from the western sea to the eatern reaches of Karelia. On some tracks they are joined by Pekko Käppi (bowed lyre and vocals) and Mikko Kosonen (guitars).

Nordik Tree - Contradans (Nordik Tree II)
Arto Järvelä, Timo Alakotila and Hans Kennemark return for round 2, aother brilliant collaboration for fiddles, mandolin, piano and harmonium (pump organ). Maria Kalaniemi guests on one track.

Maria Kalaniemi - Vilda rosor (Wild Rose)
The 2010 release by the Finnish free-bass button accordionist delves into Finnish-Swedish folk roots, accompanied by a wonderful ensemble including Pekka Lehti, Arto Järvelä, Eero Grundström, Olli Varis and many other great Finnish musicians.

Snekka - mot.
The 2004 Kaustinen Folk Music Festival's Ensemble of the Year is on CD at last, in a stirring set of orginal instrumental ballads, jazzy grooves and agressive new-acoustic folk. Tero Hyväluoma (violin), Markus Luomala (accordion), Olli Seikkula (guitar) and Tarmo Anttila (double bass) offer a smart new look at the Suomi roots. Fans of both Maria Kalaniemi and Hedningarna will find common ground.

Erik Hokkanen and Lumisudet - Cosmic Meltdown Vol. 1
Fiddler and guitarist Hokkanen, Texan of Finnish descent, with Finns Arto Järvelä, mandolinist-guitarist Petri Hakala and bassist Tapani Varis and great guests: Maria Kalaniemi, Timo Alakotila, Mauno Järvelä, Kimmo Pohjonen. It's a bit of Finnish tradition, some old-timey American, Texas swing, Tin Pan Alley and more, played by some of the hottiest musicians around.

La Bruja Gata - Baile de libelulas
The Dragonfly Dance this band does moves carefully through a compositional bent a la Maria Kalaniemi (who accordionist Javier Palancar can compete with on every level of expertise!), the spirited energy of Kepa Junkera, touches of eastern European darkness and an overarching sense of sheer ebullience. The accordion dominates in this unique Spanish band, driven by percussion, bass and mandola, colored by zanfona, flutes, dulzaina, violin, clarinet and bass clarinet.
