Diane Jarvi Kantele I have a new recording and artvestors helped make it happen!

Current Amount received from Artvestors: $5550.00! Kiitos!

You’ve probably heard of musicians raising money from individuals to finance their projects—through websites such as Kickstarter. I am a founding member of an artist cooperative (New Bohemian Arts Cooperative) that has created its own collaborative financing model called Artvesting. We offer a personal, local alternative to the other large-scale crowd sourcing models and my new recording is our first Artvesting project.

The Cooperative dedicated 100% of artvesting support to help me realize the project.

I am so very grateful to all those who helped make this recording possible. Thank you!

If you would still like to support this project, you can do so right here on my website. There are always post-production costs that include CD release concerts, promotion, mailings…

*If you would prefer to send a check, you can make it out to: New Bohemian Arts Cooperative. And mail it to Lupine Records P.O. Box 19274, Minneapolis, MN 55419

Or if you want to order bittersweet you can always send your orders to Lupine Records or visit cdbaby. Kiitos!

  • Release date—Summer 2014

I will have a CD release party with guest musicians who appear on the new CD, some Finnish treats, a silent auction to win a 5-string kantele made by Gerry Henkel and maybe some post-show tango dancing.
