Red Rooster Festival 2015

Red Rooster Blues Festival has announced is first wave of acts on its return in 2015!

Set in the idyllic private grounds of Euston Hall, designed by Capability Brown and William Kent, 2015 sees the welcome return of Red Rooster. Inspired by the sounds and aromas of America’s Deep South, Suffolk’s R&B, Blues and Americana festival is returning on 5th-7th June.
 
Announcing the first wave of acts before the Christmas break, Red Rooster is pleased to confirm one of modern day blues most renowned acts, CW Stoneking. The illusive CW Stoneking’s appearance at Red Rooster will be one of the first announcements of a UK show since 2011, his last one being to a sold out audience at London venue Koko.
 
CW Stoneking has also just released his first album in six years, “Gon’ Boogaloo,”  to much critical acclaim. Joining CW Stoneking in this first announcement will be favourites Son of Dave, Dollar Bill, The Rumble, and The Thinking Men.
 
Food and drink at Red Rooster is a major part of the event; what Deep South inspired event wouldn’t be?? Joining the bands will be some of top UK street food traders, including “The Orange Buffalo” (Voted No.1 Wings in London), “Colonel Tom’s Gumbo”, “The Mac Factory”, Norwich local smokers “The Harbecue” and chilli specialists Soul and Pepper.
 
Drinks are provided by one of the UK’s finest bar suppliers, Soulshakers – a team who specialises in southern hospitality. Think Alabama Ice Teas, Louisiana Jam’s, Sazerac’s and Hillbilly Moonshine’s – Red Rooster DOES NOT provide tasteless beer and low quality spirits!

Besides the main and smaller stages, Red Rooster plays host to campfires under the stars, a ‘gators lake, wide open cornfields, shady woodland and fun activities laid on for the kids, which all makes for an atmosphere evocative of  Southern-style hospitality in this safe and friendly festival. The event proved a big hit not only with  die-hard blues fans but families and festival goers alike. In fact, you could be forgiven for thinking you’d been transported to one big fun lovin’ Creole party…..
 
Early Bird tickets are now on sale priced at a very reasonable £38.50 + booking fee
