The Kentucky Headhunters (from the album Live at the Ramblin’ Man Fair available on Alligator Records)
The introduction for the live show captured on The Kentucky Headhunters recent release Live at the Ramblin’ Man Fairwelcomes the band to the UK for their first trip. The announcer for Ramblin’ Man Fair, a yearly summer event in the English countryside at Mote Park in Maidstone, Kent,takes time to verify the band ‘knows how to rock’n’roll. True southern gentlemen, The Kentucky Headhunters make sure they do not offend their first-time hosts and unload an electrical storm on the stage for Live at the Ramblin’ Man Fair.
Offering a track from their Pickin on Nashvillealbum, The Kentucky Headhunters roll across “Daddy was a Milk Man”, vow to the crowd to ‘get a little greasy’ with “Shuffle Back to Memphis”, dive into some southern music, amping up the Blues for “Walking with the Wolf” and let the sound simmer as the rhythm cools and the guitars play tag for “Have You Ever Loved a Woman”. Live at the Ramblin’ Man Fairshoves the show into high gear with album opener “Big Boss Man”, dips the Rhythm into the Blues for “Rock Me Baby”, rocks Country with Soul for “Hi-Hell Sneakers”, and tributes UK hometowners The Beatles with a Bluesy take on “Don’t Let Me Down”.
