Live Music Lineup
Jimmy Regal & The Royals
Little Red Rooster Stage, 28 Aug
Straight outta South London, Jimmy Regal & The Royals are a classic 3-piece Old Skool RnB combo who combine influences from North Mississippi, New Orleans and Canvey Island. Extreme harpist Joff Watkins has also recorded with kora-master Diabel Cissokho, while guitarist CJ Williams concurrently burns up the tarmac with punk-blues duo, Stage Door Guy. Their recent, second album, Late Night Chicken has won a plethora of plaudits. Their fans range from Cerys Matthews to Cedric Burnside. Fresh from appearance on Radio 4's Loose Ends with Diabel, they are ready to bring groove and gritty wailing blues to Red Rooster.
