"Trad.alt.blues" In Stock!

The CD edition of "Trad.alt.blues" is out and in the stores, at least in Estonia, and it's also digitally available now via Amazon, iTunes, Deezer etc. The day before the release, Kuma Raadio's Andres Põllu did a 30-minute phone interview with Andres Roots about the record and proceeded to play and discuss the whole album track by track on his "Üheplaadilaulud" show, using descriptions such as "Bo Diddley meets The Shadows" (yes, that would have been "Pärnu Hambone"). With Raul Terep currently out of the country, there aren't any Roots & Terep gigs scheduled before September - but there will be some then, and a tour of Finland is also being booked for February 2015...


Tonight, however, Andres Roots & Peeter Piik will be jamming at Power Camp 2014 in Annimatsi, Otepää - the annual American cars event where the Bullfrog Brown story started 14 years ago.
