The line-up for the festival also includes UK chart-topping duo Ward Thomas, blues sensation Eric Bibb, John Moreland, CC Smugglers, The Americans, Juanita Stein, William the Conqueror and Darren Eedens and the Slim Pickins’.

Ward Thomas said, “We are really excited to play at The Black Deer Festival this June, it is so encouraging to see more country festivals pop up in the UK, and we have a feeling this is going to be a special one!!! We’ve recently been working on new material which makes it even more exciting”

Alongside the music, Black Deer will offer classic food and drink, taking revellers deep into the Americana spirit. Grillstock’s Jon Finch and Ben Merrington will be heading up the delights on offer throughout the weekend.
