Ptarmigan operated in Tallinn from 2011-2014. This website exists as an archive of its activities during this time. We no longer maintain any presence in Tallinn, but some people involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary in Helsinki.
Sans Provinces is French-Finnish duo Nathalie Aubret (vocals) and Jugi Kaartinen (piano). Their acoustic journeys follow the meanders of a cinematic piano & delicate voice. They move somewhere between minimal piano music, chanson française, and singer-songwriter vulnerability, drawing influences from the likes of Yann Tiersen, Clint Mansell, Antony & the Johnsons etc. The duo formed in Helsinki in the autumn 2010.
Peter Nicholson, on residency at Ptarmigan Tallinn, will perform material from his recent album Shutters Drawn, comprised of songs and multi-instrumental compositions.
