Turnip Greens are four seasoned musicians from Arhus, Denmark. Their music is a unique blend of several musical styles from the southern states of the US. They are influenced by Tom Waits, Dr. John, Delbert McClinton, Elvis, The Meters, B.B. King, Solomon Burke, Daniel Lanois, Ry Cooder, Doyle Bramhall II, Bob Dylan, Taj Mahal, Muddy Waters, The Black Keys and many more. Without a doubt the geographical distance between Denmark and the US is the reason for the fresh and original approach to the music. At the same time you hear exactly where they are coming from and in the music you hear a deep respect for 'the masters' and 'the tradition'. On this disc you'll find eleven great original songs and to me it's some of the best new roots music that I heard in a long while.
