Oct 03, 2013

The Edmonds Sons of Norway Lodge is celebrating its 30th anniversary with an Open House on Wednesday, Oct. 9, at the Edmonds Masonic Center, 515 Dayton St.

The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. and include a cake and ice cream social, light refreshments and a concert by Finnish folk musicians, Pekka and Perttu.

Pekka Pentikäinen on accordion and Perttu Paappanen on fiddle will perform their own musical compositions inspired by the landscapes and traditional folk tunes of Finland.

The duo has studied at Sibelius Academy in the Folk Music Department and in 2007 produced their first CD.

A suggested $5 donation will be collected at the door with proceeds benefiting lodge programs.
