Rock 'n' Roll Music: The Songs of Chuck Berry

Share this with:

with Andy Fairweather Low's Hi Riders

We couldn't let our tenth anniversary happen without one of our famed multi-artist celebrations of an American music icon. Following concerts dedicated to Hank, Elvis, Johnny and Dolly in previous years, in 2017 we pay tribute to another giant figure in the history of roots and popular music, Chuck Berry.

A prime architect of rock'n'roll, a massively influential singer-songwriter who was covered by and inspired both The Beatles and The Stones and countless others and an artist who consciously fused rhythm and blues and country into his unique sound, it's hard to understate the importance of Chuck Berry in shaping so much of the music we hear today.

We're absolutely delighted that a great friend and fan of Southern Fried, legendary guitarist Andy Fairweather Low has agreed to anchor the show with his expanded 8-piece soul revue, The Hi Riders.

We're currently finalising a fantastic lineup of singers to complement this amazing band and you can look forward to a diverse collection of festival artists and special guests exploring Chuck Berry's songbook across many musical styles including his greatest hits and a few surprises along the way.

Individual tickets £32.50; concessions £30; weekend pass-holders £22.50 (inc £1.50 booking fee per ticket)
