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

TOMORROW NIGHT

Tomorrow night at Stereo in Glasgow we are taking to the stage with 2 other fantastic bands (we don't play with mediocre acts), Al Shields & The Delahayes and Black Cat Bone.

We cannot wait for this gig, please if you are free on the start of this AUGUST BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND, then do yourself a favour and get along early, you can thank me there. It would be rude of yourself not to go

Anyway, doors open at 7pm and its a early start of 715pm so we can squeeze 3 high quality sets to you lovely people of Glasgow.

Its an early start, so sadly and early finish, but that will mean all public transport can be used to get home afterwards. And as the venue is right next to Central Station then everywhere is accessible (no excuses ha ha ha)

Almost Blues - Dundee :(

It is with huge regret that we have had to pull out of the three live shows we were due to play this weekend at Dundee's Almost Blues festival. 

Unfortunately personal circumstances have made it impossible for us to return to one of our favourite cities at this time. We are absolutely gutted about this, but please be assured of it was in any way possible for us to play, we would have. 

We are going to be actively looking to play Dundee very soon, and will keep you updated asap. Again, our sincere apologies to anyone who was coming to see us

Eden...never fails to amaze...please don't change

Is it possible to fall in love with a festival ?

Either way, every time we visit the wonderful Garden of Eden it's like we get bitten with the love drug once more. It has a magical aura that is very hard to pinpoint what makes it so special.

Is it the community spirit that helps build the site for weeks prior to the gates opening ? Is it the countless volunteers doing all they can to make you enjoy yourself ? Is it the fantastic array of different genre's of music on offer at some very special stages scattered all over the site ? Is it the whole place coming together when the power HAD to be turned off during a lightning storm Saturday afternoon ? Was it the 22-24 degree blazing sunshine ? Was it the smiles on everyone's faces ? Is it meeting dozens and dozens of friends from all over this countries electric LIVE MUSIC SCENE ? The answer is who knows, but it is probably all of the above and much much more.

Thank you Eden, you were perfect...hope to see you again from the stage once more (would be great to play a night show when the mood cranks up a notch or two), cannot believe how busy the tent got when it was el scorchio outside and almost hitting 22 degrees - it was much warmer on stage hahaha To be a part of the 10th anniversary celebrations was a real honour.

Brilliant seeing Matt Scott, Anna Sweeney, Al Shields, Andrew Taylor, Ross Craig, Stephen Scott and many many others on just Rabbies stage (well HMLV was more than decent on the main stage too). And CONGRATULATIONS to the main man with Black Cat Bone and his good lady getting engaged on Friday

Thank you Stephen, George and Phil for having us at Rabbies Tavern again, you guys done one helluva job. A brilliant blend of acts over the weekend, outstanding effort yet again. Please enjoy a few days of well deserved rest.

Thanks you Eden, hope we can continue our love affair again
