Prepare yourself for a unique evening of ‘Rockgrass’ as Hayseed Dixie stomp into town tomorrow night.

Performing at Preston’s 53 Degrees, the band present a mixture of rock and bluegrass containing both original songs and their own interpretations of classic works, all in their own inimitable style.

Their Deep South Americana, duelling banjos and fierce sense of humour make them one of the most entertaining live bands around.

Formed in the summer of 2000 on the front porch of a cabin in the Appalachian Mountains, Hayseed Dixie were born after an evening of whiskey when it suddenly become obvious to the boys that the “Lost Highway” of Hank Williams and the “Highway To Hell” of AC/DC were the same road.

Their debut album, ‘A Hillbilly Tribute To AC/DC’, was subsequently released to the world on April 17, 2001

The band has since gone on to record nine further albums, and having sold more than half a million worldwide and played nearly 1,000 live shows on
 every continent except Antarctica, Hayseed Dixie can be 
acknowledged as the creators of the musical genre ‘Rockgrass’.

Tickets to the show which starts at 7.30pm cost £15 in 
advance plus booking fee. Suitablitity is aged 16 and over.
