Q: Hej Stäni! Jag undrar över varför du i tiderna valde att lära dig spela kantele? Och vilken var den första sången/det första stycket du lärde dig? :) Och sen, har du kvar den heimlagade gitarr? /Minna
A: Det var min gamla klasskamrat Beja Hemgård som meddelade mej att Folkmusikinstitutet i Kaustby efterlyste nytt material för 5-strängad kantele. Jag gick en kort kurs i Stockholm (där jag ju bodde på 80-talet) och jag tror att den första låt vi fick spela hette "Satu meni saunaan" för i den ska man spela på alla fem strängarna efter varann först åt ena hållet, sen tvärtom. Och jo, jag har den heimlaga (egentligen byggde jag den i skolan) gitarren kvar och brukar spela mellanspelet till "Makaroniloppcirkus" på den när jag uppträder ensam med kantele. Och så har jag en kazzoo fastklibbad med häftmassa på gitarren.
