Rock, blues, and roots music festival Red Rooster has announced dates and lineup for its 2021 festival over the August bank holiday weekend.
Last year saw the festival repeatedly rescheduled and cancelled due to the pandemic, but organisers are confident of running from August 27 to 29 2021 with postponed 2020 headliner Richard Hawley topping the bill.
Also headlining are 20-year-old songstress Jade Bird and desert blues outfit, Songhoy Blues. Born out of the civil war in Mali, in the face of a music ban, an incredible group of musicians came together to create something positive out of adversity. The result was the future of African Rock n’ Roll, an infectious mix of supercharged classic Malian music and desert blues.
Local band Ida Mae return after two years in Nashville with a full band show on the back of their critically acclaimed 2021 album Click Click Domino.
Classic British power trio and former Primal Scream guitarist, Little Barrie will also be performing alongside the infamous rockin’ family band, Kitty, Daisy and Lewis.
Other acts appearing include chanteuse Elles Bailey, US jazz vocalist Lady Blackbird, Emily Barker, The Hanging Stars, Heartworn Highways: A Live Tribute (Feat. The Magic Numbers, Beth Rowley, Ren Harvieu, Zak Hobbs, Robert Chaney, Naomi In Blue, Pat Ralla, Josh Flowers, Laura Tenschert, Felix Holt, Joe Harvey-Whyte), 6 Music playlisted favourite Iraina Mancini, The Urban Voodoo Machine, His Lordship, UK soul and gospel sensation Izo FitzRoy, and Jose McGill & The Vagaband.
