As Spring starts to rear its head and the flowers start to bloom at our Suffolk home of Euston Hall, we’re reminded that it’s just under 8 weeks to go until Red Rooster 2019. Tickets are flying, just like the swans frequenting Red Rooster’s lakes – now’s the time to make flight and join us before it’s too late. We’re delighted and humbled to announce the lineup for our infamous late night hot spot, The Howlin’ Woods.
Donning his Blues, Soul and Rock n Roll hat, especially for Red Rooster, the legendary Andrew Weatherall will be hitting the late night spot at Howlin’ Woods in 2019.
Andrew Weatherall’s extraordinary thirty-year career in music has been characterised by a series of unique partnerships, resulting in over twenty albums, thirty or so EPs and single splus more than two hundred and fifty remixes. He is a bastion of the underground and we’re honoured he will be spinning the finest Rock n Roll tracks for Red Rooster in 2019.
The infamous Jon More - one half of Coldcut and co-founder of the mighty Ninja Tune record empire, will also be sharing his love of Rock n Roll with the Red Rooster crowd.
