New Blues Festival Red Rooster Launches With The Jim Jones Revue, Heartless Bastards And More

The beautiful grounds of Euston Hall, Suffolk will be the location for the new and exciting, down and dirty, Red Rooster festival, which launches this September 13th to 15th.

ImageEmbracing the sounds and lifestyle of the American Deep South, Red Rooster aims to become the premier boutique festival for Rhythm and Blues,Americana, Soul, Roots and Country music.

Gates will open on the afternoon of the 13th September and finish in the early hours of the morning of the 15th September.

BBC 6 Music DJ, Cerys Matthews is happy to see a new roots and blues festival: "Through my BBC 6Music radio show I'm really aware of an ever increasing audience for roots and blues music. The UK doesn't have an equivalent of the legendary New Orleans or Newport Jazz Festivals; this being music made to be performed live, the idea of a real Rhythm and Blues Festival such as Red Rooster will create a great excitement, with both audience and live acts queuing up to be there."

The line-up confirmed so far is as follows:

The Jim Jones Revue
Heartless Bastards
Kitty, Daisy and Lewis
Pete Molinari
Son of Dave
Marcus Bonfanti
Dollar Bill
Big Boy Bloater
Urban Voodoo Machine
Honkeyfinger
Ross Allen
Lady Kamikaze
Count Sizzle
Natty Bo
Count Skylarkin
Jazzman Gerald

All food and drink on offer will be based around the theme of the Deep South too - expect to encounter one of the best BBQ joints outside of Mississippi! Whether itís Cajun and Creole, BBQ, bourbon, or gumbo and jambalaya, the organisers are guaranteeing you'll leave their kitchen fuller than a tick on a hound dog.
