"Through my BBC 6Music radio show I'm really aware of an ever increasing audience for roots and blues music. The UK doesn't have an equivalent of the legendary New Orleans or Newport Jazz Festivals; this being music made to be performed live, the idea of a real Rhythm and Blues Festival such as Red Rooster will create a great excitement, with both audience and live acts queuing up to be there "
