Spend a late summer evening with spirited and cozy live music. In addition to an enjoyable evening you have a wonderful opportunity to expand your musical horizons with Oskar Piik’s music. The memorable concert will include commentary by the performer on how his audio works are created and what a challenge it can be to finish a song. Those, who desire to hear the classics will also not be disappointed – Oskar will perform music by Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones and many others. The music will be in Estonian and English. This event is suitable for everyone who yearn to listen to simple and beautiful music.

Oskar Piik himself describes that songs come to him from “out of nowhere”. These songs like to complain about life’s hardships, dispute over love, and contemplate about their own role in the world. Songs are given support from Oskar’s voice and two guitars. This succesful collaboration began about 4 years ago and together they have performed in numerous places across Estonia. Oskar Piik lives and is from Tartu.
