Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys
Entry Requirements: All Ages
After this year's tragic cancellation, we're pleased to announce that Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys will bring their special blend of American roots music to Ramsgate in 2019!
Since forming 25 years ago, they’ve toured continuously and become torchbearers of this special sound. As a singer, songwriter, bandleader and entertainer, Big Sandy has few contemporaries. With a dynamic live show, they acknowledge and celebrate the past while setting the stage for further exploration and interpretation of this cherished musical form that they love so much.
Beloved by many, the band has released fourteen albums of undiluted, upbeat and soulful music pulled from honky-tonk, western swing, rockabilly, rock & roll, rhythm & blues, soul and doo-wop.
Their latest album, ‘What A Dream It’s Been’, on Cow Island Music, is a collection of the band’s favorite original numbers – all acoustic, reinterpreted with fresh new arrangements, rhythms, and instrumentation.
Having toured constantly for the past two decades and clocking up over 3,000 live shows these guys know their shtick… with performances at the Grand Ole Opry, opening for the likes of Johnny Cash, George Jones, The Monkees and even Morrissey, along with countless appearances on US TV and Radio.
So, Ramsgate... get your dancing shoes polished up good, 'cause we have a swingin’ night for you!
