Americana Cavelcade

At Perth Race Course

June 7th sees us taking to the stage just outside of our hometown taking part in the Americana Cavalcade, a Western family fun day as part of Perth Gold Cup weekend. The event is set to attract 2,000 Scottish Country Music fans, to Perth, the traditional beating heart of Scottish Country Music in the heart of the country. Our good friends at Medicine Music have put this extravaganza together, here’s what they have to say about it.

“The thriving Perth Country music scene will be represented by The Red Pine Timber Company, The New Madrids, Roberto Cassani & the Tickety-Two featuring the best emerging Scottish alt country from around the country The David Latto Band, The Ballachulish Hellhounds with Barberaville Records recording artists Davy Cowan, Davy Fleming and from Sweden John Mitchell and Sofie Jonsson, with Irish Country singer broadcaster Mary K Burk + tributes to Johnny and June Cash from the Highland's Federals, Charlie Roth and the whole shooting match crowned by Vanity Fare's acclaimed Notorious Byrd Brothers tribute to seminal Country Rock band The Byrds.

Add western riding displays and western re-enactment's from the Northern Rough Riders and we have a day not to be missed, and the highlight of what looks like Charlie Roth's best tour to date!”

So grab that Stetson, get yer horse, but please, in the words of the late great Johnny Cash, “Don’t take your guns to Town”!
