Red Rooster releases Euston Hall line-up list for August bank holiday festival

An eagerly anticipated live music festival set to return to a Suffolk estate in August has released the line-up of the acts today that will be there.

The Red Rooster Festival, set in the private gardens and parklands of Euston Hall, will showcase Cajun, Soul, Rock n Roll, Blues, Roots and Country music, from August 27 to 29.

The Friday night of the event will see 20-year-old English Americana songstress Jade Bird headline, followed by Richard Hawley whose ninth studio album, 'Further' hit the UK album charts at number three, taking top billing on the Saturday and Sunday night will see Malian desert blues superstars, Songhoy Blues as the headliners.

Talking about the festival last month in the Bury Free Press, production manager James Brennan, said: "The live music business has been on tenterhooks this whole pandemic, let alone the perpetual hope every time there is a government announcement.

"It’s been extremely difficult awaiting news, but finally there is light at the end of the tunnel for a business that is incredibly important to our culture and the billions of pounds it injects into the economy every year.”

Some of the other acts that will be attending the festival include Norfolk's Ida Mae, who makes a Red Rooster return after two years in Nashville, American Jazz vocalist Lady Blackbird and British five-piece band, Kitty, Daisy and Lewis.

The festival, which started in 2014, was forced to go virtual last year with organisers saying this year they will be keeping an eye on the latest measures for the event as well as adding more sanitation and hand-washing facilities to the site.

The Red Rooster Festival will be on August 27 to 29. For the full list of acts, go to redrooster.org.uk.
