After a sold out, and enormously enjoyable Red Rooster 2021, organisers are pleased to reveal the first wave of artists confirmed for 2022.
Red Rooster is delighted to welcome four-time Grammy award nominated North Mississippi Allstars to perform next year. Formed in 1996, by brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson, they’re now bringing their Hill country Blues four piece with new album “Set Sail” set for release next year.
Joining them will be Mississippi Hill Country blues guitarist, singer, and songwriter Cedric Burnside, widely heralded as an exemplar of the genre. Grandson of RL Burnside and Son of blues drummer Calvin Jackson – it’s in the blood – and we can’t wait to welcome Cedric back after the success of his Grammy nominated album “Be Trying.”
Louisiana bluesman Robert Finley joins the party, bringing a masterclass in Rhythm and Blues, his voice a shining centrepiece. His critically acclaimed album “Sharecroppers Son” was produced by Dan Aubach of The Black Keys and released on Dan’s label “Easy Eye.”
Straight out of Saskatoon, Canada, The Sheepdogs make their Rooster debut with their distinctive Southern Boogie sound as dynamic on stage as they are on record.
San Francisco’s Chuck Prophet and The Mission Express play the main stage in 2022, bringing a mix of modern lo-fi sensibilities with and storytelling songs with swampy roots influences. Chuck Prophet is an Americana legend going back to his days with Green on Red to his latest release, “The Land That Time Forgot.”
The smoky tones of the UK Americana Awards, “Song of the Year,” and No.1 Amazon blues charts, chanteuse Elles Bailey join the bill, alongside Danny George Wilson, Sister Suzie, Dom Pipkin & The Ikos, as well as the renowned Eddie Pillar on the decks, founder of legendary fanzine and label, Extraordinary Sensations and co-founder of the Acid Jazz label.
