    This just came up on my YouTube feed. I didn't see it posted on this thread. Pump organ, then kantele, then Jarmo Romppanen & Petri Prauda in a wonderful mandolin duo. I love the incredibly ornate intro that Jarmo plays—the ultimate in pulloffs and hammer-ons. If you so desire you can skip to the mandolins which start at 9:15, although the other two non-mandolin pieces are equally interesting musically to me.

    Three tunes on mandolins:
    Solmagen by Jarmo Romppanen
    Anton-pojan Polkka by Yrjö Raja
    Lungrenin Menuetti (trad.)

    Not on YouTube, but for those who are on Facebook, Tallari has been posting some new videos for the Christmas season. On a number of them Arto Jarvela is playing mandolin. And I can't be certain, but it looks like a Kentucky KM-150 or similar that he's playing. (And for those that keep track, the guitar is a Martin DX1AE.) He had it at FinnFest in Detroit last year. Very played in.

    I have been bumping up this thread for the last 10 years at about this time.
    Some of Sweden's top artistes doing Christmas music. Really delightful.
