Andres Roots Roundabout – UK session on line

Posted on: Saturday, Oct 6, 2012

On September 28th, the Estonian trio Andres Roots Roundabout recorded
a session at the Industrial Revolution-era Quarry Bank Mill in Styal,
UK which aired on Stockport’s Pure 107.8FM’s Roots & Fusion programme
on October 3rd and is now available as a podcast:

Armed with two Walden T550 guitars, a snare drum and a crash cymbal,
Andres Roots (guitar), Martin Eessalu (guitar) and Raul Terep (drums)
recorded six tunes: an improvised 12-bar named “Rick Stuart’s Blues“
after the Roots & Fusion host, “Shades“, “Room Service“ and “Wagon
Swing“ from the band’s back catalogue, Bullfrog Brown’s “Build Me A
Statue“, and the previously unavailable “The Other Rhumba“.

DJ Rick Stuart introduced the band as “the funkiest thing to come out
of Estonia since the invention of Skype“, while audiences at their
somewhat rockier concerts – the Lomax in Liverpool, Blue Cat Cafe in
Stockport and the Dulcimer in Manchester – alternated between “the
best blues we’ve heard in Manchester“ and “sounds like The Black
Keys“. Roundabout’s 4-night UK tour was backed by Music Export Estonia
and the Estonian Authors’ Society.
