Tartu slaidkitarrist Andres Roots tähistab 20 aasta möödumist oma esimesest esinemisest Augustibluusil sellega, et astub esmakordselt Haapsalu festivalipubliku ette soolokavaga, esitledes mullu USA-s, Šotimaal ja Eestis salvestatud värsket kontsertplaati “Mississippi to Loch Lomond”. Viimase aastaga on omaaegne Bullfrog Browni kitarrist jõudnud nii Soome “Blues Newsi” kui UK “Blues in Britaini” esikaanele, tema eelmine sooloalbum “Breakfast in September” käis ära nii Suurbritannia kui Prantsusmaa raadiote enimmängitud bluusiplaatide esikümnes ning raamat “Eesti muusika 100 aastat” tutvustabki Andres Rootsi kui “Eesti kitarristide hulgas rahvusvaheliselt tuntuimat puhta bluusi mängijat.”

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of his first performance at Augustibluus, the Tartu-based slide guitarist Andres Roots will play his first-ever solo set at the Haapsalu festival while presenting his latest album “Mississippi to Loch Lomond”, recorded live in the USA, Scotland and Estonia last year. The former Bullfrog Brown guitarist’s previous solo CD “Breakfast in September” reached the Top 10 in both French and British blues airplay charts and within a year, he’s appeared on the cover of both Finland’s “Blues News” and the UK’s “Blues in Britain”. In the book “100 Years of Estonian Music”, Andres Roots is introduced as “the internationally best-known player of pure blues among Estonian guitarists.”
