Early in 2000, the Canadian blues expert Johnny V recorded an album in Riga together with the Latvian Blues Band, and that was followed by a major concert tour of Canada that stretched from Toronto all the way to Calgary. This is seen as the beginning of the band’s career.

The Latvian Blues Band has appeared in Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, Croatia, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Spain, Greece, Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands, Russia, Belarus, the United States, Canada, Egypt and many places more. It has taken part in major European blues festivals such as Euro Jazz in Athens, Sierre Blues in Switzerland, Narcao Blues in Sardinia, and countless other ones.

Big Daddy Wilson was born more than 50 years ago in a small town called Edenton, North Carolina. Wilson remembers. "Me and my sisters were raised by Mom and Grandma. We lived a simple life, we went to church every Sunday, school on weekdays. I also worked back then on the tobacco plantation and in the cotton fields, I was a real country boy."

"I met the blues here in Germany. I didn’t know what the blues was before" Big Daddy Wilson says. "It was here that I found a part of me that was missing for so long in my life." It did not take long and the shy guy who had written some poems started looking for melodies. He went on stage, jammed all over the German blues scene and made an impression with his warm and soulful voice.
FORTRESS BLUES BAND

FORTRESS BLUES BAND

LATVIA

That was long ago when they started, young and crazy. When two musicians, Ilgvars Riskis from New Wave group Yellow Postmen and bluesman Maris Krasmanis decided that there is not enough blues music in Latvia. To create something valuable, they needed to bring together best of the best in the field.

Fortress, being on the stage since 1993, is the oldest performing blues band in Latvia, with its axes remaining unchanged since then. Fortress participates in international blues festivals on invitation bases and regularly performs in various music clubs in Latvia.
CATHOUSE RADIO
The Cathouse Radio is an Estonian blues band from Tartu, formed in 2013 by Alar Kriisa, former lead vocalist and harmonica player with internationally acclaimed band Bullfrog Brown, and guitarist Vilho Meier, who had previously played with Jimmie "Bluesman" Lawson and paid his dues performing with major Estonian bands and artists. The band’s line-up also includes bassist Madis Fuchs and drummer Kalle Kindel. Like people say "It's another serious blues machine coming from Tartu".

The Music of The Cathouse Radio is firmly rooted in the blues with little hints of New Orleans and Chicago blues, Americana, Country, rock and punk. Tempered with a specific tone of Alar’s driving harmonica and a "razor blades for breakfast" kind of voice, Vilho’s aggressive and powerful style guitar, Madis’s bass and Kalle’s groovy drums.
