Southern Fried Festival
Southern Fried 2016 takes place from Thursday 28 July to Sunday 31 July.
In 2015 we enjoyed performances from the Punch Brothers, Rhiannon Giddens, McCrary Sisters and The Fairfield Four plus an all-women celebration of the songs of Dolly Parton. We also enjoyed Chris Smither, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Speedometer featuring James Junior, Champion Doug Veitch, Della Mae, Red Sky July, Dean Owens and the Whisky Hearts, Yola Carter, Amythyst Kiah, Meaghan Blanchard, Boogalusa, Wolftrain, Eugene Twist, The Holy Ghosts, JD &The Straight Shot and Daniel Meade & The Flying Mules plus many more to be announced. There was an expanded line-up of smaller gigs in city centre venues, which included a free launch party in the Twa Tams and the Southern Fried Open Mic in Greyfriars Bar on Sunday afternoon. We also had the Southern Fried outdoor stage which showcased the huge range and quality of roots talent on our doorstep. As ever, the whole festival was fuelled by the famous Southern Fried soul food and served up with a warm slice of Scottish hospitality.
Tickets are on sale from April but keep checking back for programme announcements.
