September check in...
The last couple of weekends have been pretty special in the old Dixie Fried camp, and now is time to share with you our good fortunes.
Over the moon to advise that our first recording session for album number 3 was mind blowing. We rehearsed like mad in the run up to those 3 days hoping to try and put to bed as many tunes as we could. Our full approach to these recordings was just another step up from anything we done before, and just listening to the first mix of all the tracks we got finished we know we are on to something just a wee bit special.
A big thanks to Graeme for his ears, idea's, space and willingness to try new things. Made the whole weekend one great experience.
The second session will follow soon, as we go away and get the next batch of songs ready to come back to the studio again. Already started on a brand new one which is completely different from anything we have done previously, but one we have probably planned much more than anything before.
Then, the following weekend we again got to attend Jocktoberfest on the Black Isle. We cannot say enough good things about this festival. The location, the people, the vibe, the bands, the beer, the brewers and staff, the food every facet is just right to being a great weekend...and it delivers. For sure we will be looking out for when the tickets go on sale next year, as it is very limited numbers. Do yourself a favour and like the facebook page and watch out for updates. Last year we took one mate up, based on our comments more than a dozen came this year, next year numbers are already upwards of thirty desperate to be a part of it, we cannot blame them.
There are more images available from both weekends on our gallery page, go have a wee look.
Keep it Dixie y'all, more news coming real soon
