April report card for 2015...

What a few months we have had here in the Dixie Fried shack, its been an absolute blast for us both.

From taking 2 months out to work on new material, complete 2 tracks then play them during our March tour to great response, complete a third and almost there with number 4. Yes, safe to say those 2 months certainly worked for us.

March was full of gigs all over Scotland, which has led to more bookings later in the year (again everywhere), 2 summer festivals confirmed and 3 almost (fingers crossed) able to announce very soon. We sold loads of cd's on those dates, leaving us only 4 of our first album and a couple of dozen on our second (just a couple of tee-shirts left as well). Think we travelled over 1000 miles during March with everyone being completely worthwhile. Loved hearing a lot of new music from some great new music, and also some old friends as well.

Last weekend found ourselves back at one of our favourite venues in Scotland, the infamous King Tuts. Where we were able to support one of Scotland's stalwarts of the live music scene, the notorious Dave Arcari. The crowd were superb, but then again Saturday night and King Tuts is what live music is made for. Dave put on a show full of energy, blues, and swagger as he bounced all over the stage. We weren't the only support, and lucky enough to hear Glasgow's Proud Honey for the first time, blew us away with an amazing sound. It is safe to say we aim to cross both Proud Honey and Dave Arcari's path again soon, and hopefully share a stage once more.

Thank you for your continued support

Come and get a little Dixie fried

Krafty Brew, Edinburgh

Very pleased to be going to Edinburgh to play, and this time it really is a special wee gig with 2 special acts. A very limited audience will get to see Cousin Kenny, Gary Burns and ourselves from 7pm on Friday 24th April.

Get in touch as there is a bus leaving from West Lothian that will bring you all back as well.

This is happening the day before we play in the UK's best small venue King Tuts Glasgow, supporting Dave Arcari. We still have a small amount available for much cheapness

March, yeah that was a bit fun...

First of all, from Craig & John we want to say thank you to everyone involved with making March are truly memorable month for us.

We played in some  fantastic venues yet again, heard some crackin' other acts, met lots of positive music lovers (who keep the Scottish music scene alive & kicking), sold loads of cd's, and travelled over 800 miles. We both know how incredibly lucky we are, and even more grateful that so many came out to hear what we do, very humbling and also VERY inspiring to keep the head down and concentrating on creating our next batch of tunes.

We played with a couple of acts we have played with before but on the whole mainly brand new acts that makes us think very positive about future music. Matt Scott, , Searching For Donkeys & The Rag & Bone Man were again top notch. With The Commons and The Palmiros really shining a light for the future (The Commons aged between 15-16, wow !!!).

We have already starting booking our next batch of gigs later in the year, again all around the country, however there will be one or two pop up before then. This all starts off on Saturday 25th April, where we will be back at King Tuts supporting the notorious Dave Arcari, along side Glasgow band Proud Honey. After such an incredible run of gigs we are offering our allocation of King Tuts tickets at the heavily discounted price of only £5.50 (plus postage) details are on our events page here or purchasing direct here 

There is some more gigs/festivals already booked during the summer and once we get the go ahead to announce, then of course this will be the first place we will let you know.

So again, thank you for continued support and will see you at King Tuts

Come and get Dixie Fried y'all
