The Juke Joints blues-rockers from Zeeland, The Netherlands, have a very contemporary mix of blues with a rock 'n' groove. This fresh blues phenomenon of the isles of Zeeland has already played at many big international blues festivals, from the famous Delta Blues Festival in Mississippi to the Isle of Wight Blues Festival in England. The new Juke Joints CD Live in Ireland, with recordings made by the quartet last year in Dublin, Kilkenny and Youghal among others, according to the band goes back to the roots more than ever. Also one can easily imagine oneself in an Irish pub with a large pint, thanks to the prominent part the accordion plays.
