Samuli Putro – Big Prayers (FIN)

Samuli Putro – Big Prayers

One of Finland’s most loved singer-songwriters, Samuli Putro, will deliver a special one-off concert in the Main Tent at Ilosaarirock Festival this summer. Brace yourself for an extraordinary festival experience combining visual elements, light art, surround sound – and Putro’s profoundly poetic lyrics, of course.

In early 2019, Samuli Putro made an artistic decision to swap bigger stages for a series of intimate concerts held at the Ateneum Art Museum in Helsinki. The concert series, titled ‘Small Prayers’, sold out in an instant and received glowing reviews. In addition to Putro’s own songs, a central theme in the concerts were prayers that people had sent him. The unique concert at Ilosaarirock in July will be based on the same idea, but since the scale is somewhat bigger, now the working title of the project is ‘Big Prayers’. One thing is for sure: something BIG is going to happen.
