American rock band Hayseed Dixie will perform at The Baths Hall in Scunthorpe in October as part of their UK tour.

Hayseed Dixie initially began in the summer of 2000 playing the traditional music of their forefathers on banjo, fiddle, mandolin, acoustic guitar and acoustic bass.

All of this changed abruptly one afternoon when a stranger crashed his car into a tree and died in their town.

As they searched through the wreckage, they discovered several vinyl AC/DC albums.

After playing them, everyone agreed that the songs were right fine country music and their musical path was clear.

More recently, the band have been exploring the inspired catalogue of the stadium rock of the 1970s and 1980s.

This interest began during a 2014 tour of Germany, in which the band heard the song Eye of the Tiger six different times on six different German radio stations in a single day.

Hayseed Dixie have released 15 albums since 2001, consisting of both original material and reinterpretations of previously rendered songs, selling a combined total of over 500,000 copies.

Their Baths Hall date is on 5th October.
