News: Red Rooster

by Adam Aiken

Deep South blues star Christone “Kingfish” Ingram and fellow US singer/songwriter Fantastic Negrito are the headliners at next weekend’s Red Rooster festival.

The ninth Red Rooster – held at Euston Hall, just south of Thetford – will run from June 1 to June 3 and will once again celebrate a wide range of soul, blues, country, rock’n’roll, Cajun and roots music.

And in something of a coup, the bill also includes the Take Me To The River Allstars, who comprise some of the most influential figures in Mississippi Delta and New Orleans funk, R&B, soul and jazz.

His Lordship follow-up their recent blistering set in Norwich with a slot at the festival, as do Us (who supported His Lordship at that show).

Other acts on the bill include Daddy Long Legs, the New Yorkers who merge R&B with rock’n’roll, and Chuck Prophet & The Mission Express.

Nicole Atkins, Shardé Thomas And The Rising Stars, and country chart-topping Ashley Campbell are amongst the other acts due to descend on Suffolk, although Jesse Malin has had to pull out.
