UNION OF BLUES (LT/PL)

The project was created especially for participation in the Suwałki Blues Festival 2010, but only at the end of 2011 the band played its first concerts. Several years of cooperation between musicians from Suwałki and Vilnius prompted them to establish a joint blues project. These are three very experienced musicians who present their compositions and blues standards in their own interpretation and with an interesting sense of blues phrases in acoustic versions. In 2012, they released a CD entitled ” “Union Of Blues”.
