IDeeJazz, Pics, Mardi Gras!

On October 31st, Roots & Terep will have the honour of opening Tartu's IDeeJazz Festival at the Tartu Jazz Club. For the occasion, Avo Kartul conducted a lengthy interview with Andres which you can read at the festival site - but yes, it's in Estonian. Below are some pics from the duo's last show at the Feel Good Music Café, courtesy of Feel Good.

And: over in Finland, Maaseutumusiikki has published a new EP for Tapsa Kojo's birthday, "Vallilan Kojootti", which features Andres Roots on one track, "Mardi Gras" - a new reading of a Roots tune originally composed well over 10 years ago as the theme song for a series of concerts at the Tartu Song Festival Grounds' Café. Listen below and order the CD here!

Walkin' Blues & Beyond

Here's another taster from the upcoming "Live In Lerwick" album:

Meanwhile, Belgium's & Estonia's Muusika magazine have published reviews of "Trad.alt.blues". In the former, Luc Meert writes: "Andres Roots is clearly one of the better blues guitarists out there running around. The man breathes blues and that is so clearly audible in his guitar playing. The combination with Terep's subtle drumming is wonderfully successful. Both feel and complement each other creatively." In the latter, Margus Haav adds: "It's great when music invites you not only to feel but to think along, keeping your body and mind fresh."

In October, Andres Roots & Raul Terep are set to do full-length show at the Feel Good Music Café on October 16th and to open the IDeeJazz festival at the Tartu Jazz Club on October 31st.  

The previous week's Finnish tour with Ismo Haavisto & the Muddy Waters tribute went great as usual: read's review of Koli's Ruska Blues festival here and watch a Vihreä Talo performance of "Garbage Man" below!
