Celebrating 20 years as a touring musician in 2016, Andres Roots is a slide guitarist, songwriter and bandleader based in Tartu, Estonia. Combining pre-rock blues sounds with swing and 1960's rock influences, his music continues to receive airplay on five continents and has been frequently featured in cinema and television, including the award-winning Estonian/Latvian/Belarusian film "Lonely Island" (2012), directed by the Berlinale-decorated Peeter Simm.

In addition to his native Estonia, Roots has toured in the UK, France, Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Sweden and Finland, played with Honeyboy Edwards (USA) and Tuomari Nurmio (FIN), and opened for the likes of Dr. Feelgood (UK) and Otis Grand (USA).
Preferring the duo format of Andres Roots & Raul Terep that highlights his "excellent slide technique complimented by great chording and simultaneously executed skillful basslines" (Sirp), with "the sound made with just drums and one guitar filling the stage more powerfully than your average rock band" (IDeeJazz), Roots also performs solo and continues to collaborate with harpists Ismo Haavisto (FIN) and Steve Lury (UK) in a more traditional blues vein. The 2015 Roots & Terep Trad.alt.winter Tour saw the press in Estonia, Finland and Sweden greet the former Bullfrog Brown guitarist as "the king of Estonian blues".
Roots' festival appearances since going solo in 2010 include the Shetland Blues Festival (UK), Le Blues Autour du Zinc (FRA), Stompin’ At The Savoy (FIN), Lahti Grand Blues (FIN), Ruska Blues (FIN), Saimaa Blues (FIN), Tammerblues (FIN), Louisiana Cajun Party (FIN), Kaavi Blues (FIN), Leppävirta Blues Picnic (FIN), Sigulda Blues (LV), Fontaine Festival (LV), Baltic Blues (LV), IDeeJazz (EST), Jazzkaar (EST), Viru Folk (EST), Tallinn Music Week (EST), Pärnu Kitarrifestival (EST), Mailaul (EST), Intsikurmu Music Festival (EST), Prima Vista (EST), Guitar Jamboree (EST), Pärnu Bluusipäevad (EST), Ugriblues (EST), Augustibluus (EST), UnderGround Blues (EST), Baltic-Nordic Harmonica (EST), Emajõe Bluus (EST) and Linna Pea Rock (EST).
Andres Roots is also active as an educator and a journalist, writing regularly for the Finnish webzine and the Tartu jazz monthly Jazzi Pala; his articles on music have appeared in Estonian dailies and in various Swedish, British, German and Dutch music publications. In 2016, Roots will be delivering a series of public lectures on the history of the blues in Pärnu and Tartu, Estonia.
