Hootenanny Freaks is a hard drivin’ rock and roll band from Espoo, Finland. Since 1997 the band has played rock with a strong attitude and heartbeat. Hootenanny Freaks is having their 20th anniversary this year. The band’s music has always been strongly influenced by both, domestic and foreign, old school rock bands. The first EP, Hootenanny Freaks, containing five songs, was released in 2013. The band got two new members in 2015 and their current lineup is Marko Kuurne – Drums, Montte Leino – Bass, Esko Kemell – Guitar, Markus Kyönsaari – Guitar and Pepe Tamminen – Vocals. The second EP, Rebel Soul, was released in December 2016 with four songs. Both EPs are available on Spotify and YouTube.
