Celebrate the album release of New York-based Finnish singer-pianist Eeppi Ursin. "My Finnish Soul" brings well-known Finnish traditional folk and rock classics to life with soul and jazz tones. Songs such as Säkkijärven Polkka, Myrskyn jälkeen, Pohjois-Karjala and Moottoritie on kuuma are performed as Eeppi’s delicate, stripped-down and epically strong interpretations. The album is a tribute to the three-year period that changed the course of Ursin's musical career. After moving to New York she developed a virtual "Love Boat" concert concept which became a hit, especially among expatriate Finns during the pandemic. In the beginning of 2022 Ursin was chosen as Performer of the Year by Finlandia Foundation National. The U.S. tour included 17 concerts in 13 cities taking Ursin all the way to Alaska.
