Black River Bluesman (Finland) has a new web site. Be sure and take a look at their documentary Into The Deep Blues

Here's what I wrote about them back around the dawn of time:

"Jukka ´Black River Bluesman´Juhola and ‘Andy’ BAd Mood Hudson destroyed the woods and the mountains around their tiny hometown of Mustio Finland by carving their guitars and drums from whole ironwood trees with their bare hands and by using John Henry´s twelve-pound hammer (with four-foot handle) they beat down those mountains for brass, silver, and iron (and coal to fire this thing) to fashion the rest of the parts they needed. When they were finished they stomped their thirst with a bottle of RL Burnside´s Bloody Mthrfckr and sat down in the full moonlight at that muddy crossroads between Holly Springs Mississippi, Mustio (Black River) to play Their raw dirty beautiful Blues.” 

BRB uses every manner of Lowebow Cigar Box Guitars built by the great alt-luthier John Lowe. Be sure and check those out, too!
