Southern Fried line up announced
US bluegrassers Craig Duncan and Friends and country singing sensation Elizabeth Cook play late night music club Late and Southern Fried on Friday night in Perth Theatre.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth Cook, Holly Williams and Rachel Harrington and others join for The Roots of Elvis on Saturday 31 July in Perth Concert Hall. This festival exclusive will see the unique line up put their own voices to Elvis songs in appreciation of the blues, country and gospel influences that led the king of rock 'n' roll to be an almost unwitting pioneer of Americana.
Holly Williams, granddaughter of Hank, makes a night of it by performing Late and Southern Fried in Perth Theatre on Saturday night.

The Cumberland River rose to 52 feet and burst it's banks last weekend causing damage to The Opryland Area, and the Lower Broadway area downtown.
The Country Music Hall of Fame was affected, but thankfully, not the exhibits. The water rose to the third row ofseats within the Hall's Ford Theatre, but the complex has reopened this weekend.
The Opryland Hotel will be closed for months, and this weekend's Grand ole Opry will be held at it's old home, the Ryman.
The stadium that hosts the Tennessee Titans and next month's CMA Music Festival was badly flooded.
20 people died across the area, and many people were left homeless. The Red Cross have swung into action, and donations from Country stars include $50,000 from Taylor Swift and £100,000 from Reba McEntire.
