Interview with Turisas

2A Portage to…
Turisas’ violinist Olli Vänskä took some time to talk to me during the busy Paganfest tour. It was a very nice conversation where he told me a little bit more about himself as a violinist and of course about what Turisas has in store for us this year.
Hi Olli, how are you and what have you been up to lately?
“This will sound cliché, but I do have a hangover! But it will be all right. The tour has been very nice so far. Tonight we will play, I think, the fourth show. Everything is getting a little bit more smoother now. It’s been a while since we were on stage, so that’s always a little bit scary.”
