The summer festival season is just around the corner, but in Suffolk things are kicking off early.
The Red Rooster festival has been bringing a taste of the Deep South to Suffolk for the last five years, offering a weekend of music, food and culture.
Celebrating the very best in rock'n'roll, blues, soul, roots and country music, the festival is the go-to early summer event for fans of all things Americana.
This year's headliners coming to Euston Hall on May 30 to June 1, include Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets and The Budos Band, with many other acts from across the pond.
In order to source this diverse programme the Red Rooster programming team travelled to Nashville, Memphis, Mississippi and New York.

The festival also offers an array of food and drink, with vendors serving up American classics such as sloppy joes, macaroni cheese and southern fried chicken.
Once the headliners have bid farewell to the woodland's main stage, the Red Rooster party continues in the Howlin' Woods venue and bar down by the lake, with a DJ line-up.
The festival has completely sold out for the last three years.
The weekend tickets include three nights of camping and parking. Guests can also bring their campervans and motor homes, with the purchase of a live-in vehicle pass. Children under 12 go free.
