Scottish country and western fans to descend on Perth


SCOTTISH Country and Western fans will be pulling on stetsons and cowboy hats and heading to Perth racecourse next weekend for an Americana-themed music festival.


Bands will arrive from as far off as Tennessee


The Americana Cavalcade will be held at the racecourse on Saturday 6th June, from 2pm to 10pm. Two stages will host a range of acts from as far off as Tennessee in the USA.


Bucking broncos and hog roasts will also feature at the event, which is being held to co-incide with  The City of Perth Gold Cup race meeting the day after.


Ticket costs £15, and under-18s go free. Those with an American Cavalcade wristband will also get into the Gold Cup Day Meeting for a reduced price of £15.


Tracey Quin, sales manager at Perth Racecourse said: “ There are prizes going to best dressed cowboy, cowgirl and cow-kid.


“ We know that Perth Racecourse customers never let us down on a fancy dress so I can’t wait to see our crowd.”
