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.

Recently announced Honky Tonk hero Dale Watson will be bringing some Texas country flair to the stage, while Mississippi's Cedric Burnside is set to dazzle attendees with his Hill Country Blues.

Now in its sixth year, the festival attracts a mix of musical devotees, cross-generational families and youngsters with a burgeoning interest in country and soul.

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.
