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
