Jussi Syren & the Groundbreakers: new lineup, new CD, great reception

Thanks to Jussi Syren, who reports from Finland:

Jussi Syren & the Groundbreakers are now a five-piece band. Fiddler Nelli Ikola has joined the group. Their latest album, Shave and haircut, had a wonderful review in Bluegrass Unlimited, and the next album will be out in October.

The BU review includes the words: 'Make no mistake about it, these guys deliver the goods: this is hard-driving bluegrass with an edge not heard since the likes of Red Allen.'
