It’s 2019 and that means we’re a gargantuan step closer to opening the doors at Euston Hall for this summer’s Red Rooster.
Whilst a few places are getting a bite from the cold air, we’re warming your musical cockles with our latest line-up announcement.
Saturday night’s headliners will be The Budos Band from the mighty Daptone Records. Hailing from Brooklyn, The Budos Band play what they describe as “Afro-Soul” – Imagine The JB’s jamming with Black Sabbath and you’re getting close!
Red Rooster is delighted to welcome the Grammy nominated Cedric Burnside to the line-up. Cedric was born to the blues, more specifically, hypnotic Mississippi Hill country blues. Learning his craft as the drummer with his grandfather, the legendary Fat Possum recording artist RL Burnside.
