With the Trad.alt.winter Tour finished, Tallinn Music Week showcases done and Raul Terep travelling abroad, April was looking to be a quiet month - but no: on Thursday, April 2nd, Andres Roots and drummer Andres Mikk will join one of Finland's finest blues bands White Knuckles Trio at Genialistide Klubi in Tartu for a night of Finno-Ugric Blues. Not to be missed!

Tallinn Music Week itself was a lot of fun: great audiences and cool venues! Below are a few pics from Saturday night at Philly Joe's by Marianne Ubaleht - more photos here.

New Tune - Free Download!

The Tartu duo Andres Roots & Raul Terep, who will be playing two shows at this Saturday's Tallinn Music Week festival, have released a new track called "Tea For Alex", which will remain available as a free download via www.andresroots.com until April 1st.

"This may not be the tune one would immediately pick to advertise a gig at a jazz club, but then again why not – the first time we performed it live was at last year's IDeeJazz festival, and last week at Stockholm's famous Stampen jazz club, this was the number that received special praise from the staff," said Andres Roots who composed the tune. "The melody started haunting me one evening while I was making my son a cup of tea - and once the title was there, references to his favourite heavy rock bands started creeping in..."

Last week, guitarist Roots and drummer Raul Terep finished their Trad.alt.winter Tour which included six shows in Estonia, five in Finland and two in Sweden. Their March 28th Tallinn Music Week concerts will take place 4 p.m. at Teele Viira's boutique and 9.15 p.m. at Philly Joe's jazz club.
