Andres Roots Joins Walden's Artists Family
Portland, Oregon, USA, (Dec, 2009) - Walden Guitars is proud to announce a new endorsement by Andres Roots, famous slide guitarist and main songwriter for Estonian alternative blues trio Bullfrog Brown. Andres endorses the Walden T550, a solid Spruce top, Mahogany back & sides, specially designed 7/8 sized Travel body Natura acoustic guitar. "With a great acoustic sound for the studio and the more intimate venues, the T550 is also small-bodied enough to avoid feedback issues when equipped with a pick-up and plugged in for the big stage. It is reliable, versatile and has a tone entirely its own - just what I've been looking for,” said Andres.
"Walden Guitars is proud to add Andres to our list of endorsed artists," said Jonathan Lee, guitar designer and division manager of the KHS Fretted Instrument Division. "Andres’ and Bullfrog Brown’s blues is fantastic and we’re honored that Andres plays everywhere with our Walden T550.”
With seven internationally acclaimed releases to their name, including "Mother
River Delta" which was declared 'Best European Recording' of 2008 by Canada's
Blues Underground Network, the group stands as the best-known Baltic act on the
blues scene today.
Maintaining a busy live schedule, Bullfrog Brown have backed delta blues legends such as David "Honeyboy" Edwards and toured with alt. blues heroes like Scotland's Dave Arcari. They have appeared at blues, roots and guitar festivals and clubs throughout the Baltics, in Finland, the UK, France, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, while their songs remain in steady rotation on blues radio shows on four continents. In addition to his duties with the band, Andres is active as a guitar teacher and as a contributing writer for Blues-Finland.com.
