    Barrel Organ Festival

    In Estonian history the street organ music hasn’t spread widely and therefore a long streetorgan music tradition doesn’t exist. However Estonian Theatre and Music Museum has a remarkable and valuable collection of mechanical music instruments. Many of these needed a lot of work and the need to repair the instruments that were out of order, grew out the other important collaboration field. In addition of fun and entertainment, street organ festivals are the best way to introduce mechanical music and instrument’s history to a wider audience.Opening concert on Thursday, 29/06 at 17:00 Rüütli square.
