Postponed from 22nd February 2021 (Event originally due to take place October 2020).
Hayseed Dixie began one day in 2000 when John Wheeler and Mike Daly drank roughly enough whiskey to float a battleship from the Florida Coast over to Portugal and back and decided to play around in John’s studio. Having spent the previous few years touring around with assorted country hat-acts, John had assembled a proper pile of recording equipment.
Thus, when he and Mike
discovered in their drunken epiphany that the Lost Highway of Reverend Hank Williams
and the Highway to Hell of Bishop Bon Scott
were indeed the same identical stretch of tarmac, they were well and truly prepared to document this revelation in situ.
Now, 20 years and 14 albums later, with global physical sales in excess of half a million and over 1,200 live shows in 31 different countries under their belts, Hayseed Dixie
are the undisputed creators of the musical genre, Rockgrass. There are many copycats, converts, and disciples out there. Accept no imitations.
“The Hayseed’s berserk hedonism is indeed refreshing!”
