N’awlinz swamp music
Richard van Bergen’s Rootbag is a trio that’s inspired by hypnotic Blues from the Mississippi Delta, sexy grooves from New Orleans and swampy R&B. This band mixes it all together to a Rootbag-style gumbo soup. Raw, intense, soulful and groovy. In 2014 Richard decided to finish the recordings with the help of co-producers Isa Azier and Mischa den Haring ( T 99, Cuban Heels ) at studio Silverster in Utrecht. Richard van Bergen ‘Rootbag’ contains 12 originals and was released in October. On Arrow Classic Rock Radio the CD was voted Blues CD of 2014!
