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


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

Looking forward to a bumper month...

Happy Halloween folks

Have we got a month to look forward to or what, read on for all the details, but we are proper excited and very up for making it a belter.

3 days from now (3rd Nov) - we support the one man enigma that is Bob Log III at Sneaky Pete's in Edinburgh. Heard yesterday that it is nearing a sell out, but if you turn up early at the door and use our name 'Dixie Fried' then there will be a few discounted tickets available, but not many. (see details)

6 days from now (6th Nov) - I get to go witness The Specials at the Barrowlands - undoubtedly the best venue in Europe, very excited to be returning to a place I almost called my second home I knew everyone that worked there at one point by first name.

18 days from now (18th Nov) - we both get to rejoice at the temple of Rich Robinson of The Black Crowes at ABC in Glasgow. His new solo album is breathtakingly brilliant, cannot recommend it any more.

21 days from now (21st Nov) - we play our last West Lothian gig of the year, and ITS 100% FREE ENTRY at The Tower, Livingston with the electrifying three piece The White Russians and the sublime Paul Vinter. (see details)

26 days from now (26th Nov) - we have our first appearance on STV Glasgow's Riverside show playing a few tunes absolutely and 100% LIVE. Let us know what you think we should play, we are thinking two of our best crowd pleasers and a new one, but gladly accept any idea's.

28 days from now (28th Nov) - we are supporting Marcus Bonfanti at King Tuts, Glasgow. Having already sold out our first run of tickets, we are collecting a second run tomorrow and keeping our heavily discounted available. NO BOOKING FEE, so almost half priced against ticketmaster prices. (see details)

As you can see its shaping up to be a great month of music all over the central belt of Scotland. We are going out of 2014 very happy, with a few new tunes in the can, more being worked on, and even more already planned during December & January when we retreat to our man-cave to focus on new material, before returning with some live shows in a couple of months time.

Life is good, enjoy your All Hallows Eve celebrating life and death with loads of good humour, then November join us in a musical journey as we rejoice in the present

Keep it Dixie y'all
