Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival 2019

100% cannot wait for this gig !!!

Last year we were lucky enough to play on this exact same stage, we must have done something right to have been invited back again this year.

This will be our third visit to play in Edinburgh in 2019, and honestly the responses at gigs we have had has been very humbling. Last year was a complete sell out as we co-headlined with the amazing Jedd Potts trio. This year is a co-headline with our very good friends from Aberdeen Full Fat. We have played a lot of gigs with these guys and know this will be another cracking night ahead.

The great thing about this venue is the location, it is a pop up venue that will be there during the duration of the Edinburgh festival (that follows the Jazz & Blues festival), but the whole gardens is available as a FREE venue to soak up the atmosphere, have a sociable drink, some great food and enjoy the glorious sunshine outwith a few of the gardens official venues.

Tickets are available RIGHT NOW FROM THIS LINK, I would highly recommend buying now as all the incoming festival go-ers will buy up tickets nearer the day, so don’t leave it too late.

We have been very busy writing a lot of new songs for our next album, and will add in one or two as well as some of our much more well known songs from our previous 3 studio albums.

Come on down, its a Saturday night and promises to be one to remember


We are back...

Hello you lovely people,

What can I say, but its good to be back…we haven’t really gone away, but taking a small break from playing live gave us more time to focus on new tunes and glad to say we are very excited about what we have achieved, so far…

Anyway, more exciting news very soon but the reason for reaching out to you all now is something we are over the moon to be involved with.

SATURDAY 16th FEBRUARY we are supporting the Grammy nominated Cedric Burnside playing at McChuills in Glasgow

Also on the bill is Glasgow band Hicks

Now an artist in his own right, emerging from the huge shadow of his drum kit where he sat for his “Big Daddy” grandfather RL Burnside. His first album with Lightnin Malcolm as part of the 2 Man Wrecking Crew was a statement of where he was going. 10 years later as a Grammy nominated artist for last years album Benton County Relic. Played at the 2018 Edinburgh Blues Festival (as did Dixie Fried).

If you know anything about Dixie Fried as a band, then RL Burnside has had a MASSIVE influence on where we come from style wise. Hill Country Blues music is our foundation, and where we build all our tunes from. In fact the album Burnside on Burnside still remains as one of our very favourite live albums.

Tickets are still available on this link

  • YES - we have only one more gig (after this weekend) this year, and it is going to be a LONG set at Madhatters, Inverness on Saturday 16th December

A quick run down of the summer highlights...we got to play in some of our very favourite places, Almost Blue Dundee, Dreadnought Bathgate, Belladrum, supporting Miracle Glass Company and last but certainly not least Jocktoberfest at the Black Isle Brewery. A truly special summer, thank you to all who came to see us again, and also those that found their way into the Dixie Fried groove, we hope it is one you will enjoy for a long time.

We are desperate to get this album out as we have some great things happening all over it. We have invested everything we can to make it sound as good as we can. Spent many many hours pouring over every detail, from every note and drum beat, to artwork getting the right tone and angle, to even arguing over the bit rate that digital distributors will accept. We are very emotionally attached to this in making it the very best we can, and hope that transfers over to the music.

Release date will be announced in the next month, as we are busy working out some finer details to make it even more special for those that are with us on our journey to our THIRD ALBUM RELEASE !!!

As we have said right from the start...'Keep it Dixie y'all'
