BLUEGRASS hillbilly rockers Hayseed Dixie will be bringing a touch of AC/DC to Hatfield later this year.
"If we’ve recorded it and somebody yells it loud enough, we’ll play it. "
The American group will perform their 2001 debut A Hillbilly Tribute to AC/DC in full at the Forum Hertfordshire on Monday, November 4.
As the album name suggests, the record features cover versions of AC/DC songs performed in bluegrass style.
It includes Angus and Malcolm Young classics such as Highway to Hell, T.N.T. and Back in Black.
To ensure that the Forum party really kicks off, the band will also be taking requests from the audience to give everyone exactly what they want.
So you could hear the likes of Motorhead’s Ace of Spades, Queen chart-topper Bohemian Rhapsody or something more obscure.
The group said: “If we’ve recorded it and somebody yells it loud enough, we’ll play it.
“If we haven’t recorded it yet, and somebody yells it loud enough, we might give it a go.”
Formed in 2001 with the release of their AC/DC tribute album, Hayseed Dixie are acknowledged as the creators of the musical genre ‘rockgrass’.
Hailing from the Appalachian Mountains in the United States, the band consists of Barley Scotch on vocals, guitar and fiddle, Reverend Don Wayne Reno on banjo and vocals, Deacon Dale Reno on mandolin, guitar and vocals and Jake ‘Bakesnake’ Byers on bass and vocals.
So join Hayseed Dixie on the Highway to Hell at the Forum and be sure to check out what will no doubt be one rowdy evening of hillbilly rock at the University of Hertfordshire’s College Lane entertainment complex.
The concert starts at 7pm and tickets cost £15 in advance. To buy tickets call 0844 477 2000 or visit www.ticketweb.co.uk
