Pori Jazz 2009


Arrived to Pori on Wednesday evening,
had tickets for the Thursday's outdoor concert featuring Duffy
.
Heavy rain in the morning,
but gorgeous sunshine in the afternoon!
17.000 people had arrived to enjoy groovy music at Kirjurinluoto
.
Raphael Saadiq from Los Angeles, California

43 years old but looks like 25!
- great retrosoul concert!
- "Let the sunshine in " was a funny encore,
but the audience loved it!
.
Duffy stepped to the stage at 8pm
.
Duffy had learnt some Finnish:
"Kiitos!" (thank you!)
&
"Kaikki mukaan!" (comoon everybody!)
.
Aimée Duffy
- "Mercy" ended the set,
"Distant Dreamer" was the encore
- fantastic concert!
- her voice was just like on the album - really good singer,
nice sympathic performer!
.
Wasn't hungry, but someones were,
so went to Trattoria Bucco,
which was, of course, fully booked,
but somehow got a possibility to wait
at the wine bar for a free table.
Lots of Finnish celebs there!
Sat next to Kaarina Kivilahti & her husband,
Leena Harkimo with her partner was there too.
.

Skipped the starter,
had only a main course:
grilled white fish
- very good but too much at least at that time of the night
.
