Ah, this makes sense. We might make it over to Ridgewood after K8 has practice to see him at the shop. All depending on the puppy.

He's a delight. Really very good for a dog his age. A little worried about his digestion still, but worlds better than when he was first here. He's learning things really pretty fast. I can't wait until he's had his rabies shots and we can get him out in the world!

↳ Song: "Synnjavinden" by "Gangar"
About 25 years ago I went into a shop in Norway and asked if there were any bands doing fusions of folk and rock (e.g. like Garmarna in Sweden was doing at the time) and they said not so much, more folk and jazz. Glad to see the situation has changed!

The main folk metal I know here in Finland are Finntroll (Finnsvenskas!) and Korpiklaani,but there's been some other cool fusion stuff too, such as Ruumen back in the day, and bands like Suistamon Sähkö and Sähköpaimen nowadays
