Wasel & The Weasels is deeply steeped in American roots music… Some call it old timey, some call it hillbilly, some call it old country or sometimes even pre-blues… The band has transformed age old lyrics written by unknown musicians way way back in time into Finnish adaptations of their own. This is: Roots Music for the Finnish Sisu and Soul…
