Roots music for the Finnish Soul and Sisu.


Age old songs from the American roots.

Wasel & The Weasels is deeply steeped in American roots music... Some may call it Old Time, some Hillbilly, some call it Blues, but the specialty of the band is their own Finnish adaptations of those age old lyrics written by unknown musicians way way back in time...

Wasel Arar: vocals, mandolin, guitar
Marja Zilcher: vocals, fiddle
Klaus Hurskainen: banjo
Juho Kyyhkynen: guitar
Heikki Timonen: upright bass

One of our favorite recent endeavours is playing the music for the strategy game on Steam: Grand Tactician, The Civil War 1861-1865. Check it out
