The Kentucky Headhunters Invite The U.K. On Safari
Following on from last year’s performance at the Ramblin’ Man Fair, Grammy Award-winners The Kentucky Headhunters are set to return to the UK in October, for a handful of shows in support of twelfth album, ‘On Safari’. Released last November by Plowboy Records/Practice House Records, the southern rock LP tips the hat to family and the southern way of life in the USA.
Bluesdoodles loved the album “On Safari, is a jukebox of sounds that never crash and burn, they all fit into the album” Why the Album title On Safari? The music is taken from the inspiration gained on their first time trip overseas. Pushed out of their comfort zone by Richard’s son John Fred Young they traveled to Europe. The result is music that sparkles with the excitement of traveling and being On Safari. Band members/brothers Richard and Fred Young poignantly lost their father just three days before heading into the studio to record the album, which they have dedicated in his memory.
