About us

We are playing now for many years. First we did play mainly traditionals. Then some time ago we began to play around with our own compositions, adding coat after coat, cutting here and there, adding here and there. We prefer not to make a lot of words to explain us and our music, we hope our music explains itself and tells you something about us through itself. There are many influences, naturally, and they blend with our own imagination, experiences, feelings and way to play and perform. All in all it still is a work in progress, the results still keep surprising us. But most of all -it continues to be a lot of fun!

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Who am I to answer such a question? Look at the big musicians - the played, they did believe in their work, they had their ups and downs, some where discovered, some not, and all of them never stopped playing ... some blues musicians where completely forgotten and sitting on their porches, when some British guys started to play the old blues tunes and this brough the old blues musicians back on stage and into the spotlight - but they were great musicians all the time ...

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.
