It’s the time of year to be planning your summer and buying those festival tickets, and there’s still some left for Black Deer 2023. A festival about Americana music, food, clothes and vibes, they’ve already announced Bonnie Raitt and many more.
Now it’s the turn of the final batch of announcements, kicking off with Patty Griffin returning to the UK for the first time in four years, and an all time classic performer. There’s also one of Britain’s most overlooked performers, Richard Hawley, who’s had his hand in some great bands and is a mean writer himself.
Over seven hundred acts entered the Black Deer Emerging 2023 programme, and the four picked to perform are Demi Marriner, Motel Sundown, Anna Howie, and Samuel Ashton. “Black Deer is about experiencing the unique cultural richness that surrounds the Americana lifestyle,” founders Gill Tee and Debs Shilling said. “The natural ingredients that complete this melting pot can all be found at Black Deer – from authentic smokehouse BBQ cooking and a righteous Sunday gospel brunch to the thrill of custom motorcycle culture and a connection with nature to inspire the young folk.”
