In 2011 and 2012, Lury & Roots toured Estonia and Finland as Steve Lury & Andres Roots Roundabout. The shows included festival slots at Viru Folk (EST), Pärnu Bluusipäevad (EST), Kaavi Blues (FIN) and Leppävirta Blues Picnic (FIN). "The best this year's Blues Picnic had to offer. Lury's harmonica sawed and hugged, tore and grabbed with the soulful sound of warmhearted and spine-tingling blues," wrote Finland's Jazzrytmit magazine of their Leppävirta performance, reprising their praise for Kaavi Blues: "Roots is a super-skilled guitarist and we saw fantastic proof of that during yesterday's concert. The band's performance was probably the finest we witnessed all day: confident, masterly and compelling."
2013 saw the release of the Lury/Roundabout single "Someplace Nice/Spider In My Bed", the former track also included on Vol. 1 of Wasser-Prawda webzine's 5th anniversary compilation in Germany. In September 2013, Lury, Roots and ex-Bullfrog bassist Piik gigged in Scotland as a trio, with Paul Archibald (UK) sitting in on drums for the Shetland Blues Festival's Muddy Waters Night programme. Lury & Roots' two nights at the Mareel in Lerwick were recorded and released in 2014 as Steve Lury & Andres Roots "Live In Lerwick", courtesy of Shetland Arts Development Agency.
