Riyen Roots is of the busiest performing acoustic blues artists in the US. Having played 133 shows in 2015. He and his duo, Roots and Dore are quickly building a name for themselves in the blues world, opening for many big names, playing festivals, and they just got back from a very successful three week European Tour with over a dozen dates in Switzerland, Italy, and France. They just released their new cd with special guest appearances by good friends "Steady Rolling" Bob Margolin, and multiple Grammy Winner David Holt.
