Kari Veskoniemi

I was born in Syrminiemi on Lake Muddus
in the village of Kaamanen, Inari, Finland in
1957. My folks sent me out into the wide
world for my military service, which took me
a good 42 years. I have played music since I

was a little kid. As a bigger kid I've been
playing guitar in a folk music group for over
three decades.

When I was closing in on my big sixty, six
strings began to feel overwhelming, so I
switched to bass guitar four years ago.
I play in a folk group and a couple of dance
music groups. Country music with The

Ramsons is my newest territorial conquest.
