Black Deer is a festival born from passion, and built from experience thanks to its founders, who have produced and directed some of the UK’s most loved featuring legendary Americana artists like Neil Young, the Eagles and Bob Dylan.

While it’s so often the headliners who get the attention, Black Deer is a festival that celebrates both the timely and the timeless and the true joy comes from some of the artists deeper in the lineup.

Black Deer Festival – Ones To Watch

On Friday keep your eyes and ears peeled for Danny Starr, who the astute among you, will remember from our own Bose-sponsored, lockdown Takeover Festival, in aid of Nordoff & Robbins.

Saturday brings the sublime brotherly soul of Australia’s The Teskey Brothers who are an essential must-see. Honestly, they will leave you open-mouthed.

Further down the bill, you’ll also find sibling duo Matty and Julia aka Belle Roscoe. Their expertly crafted songs soar, as epitomised by the latest single ‘The Birds’ which threatens to literally take flight.

Sunday brings Richard Hawley who in football parlance is surely one of this country’s most underrated performers. His 2007 release ‘Lady Bridge’ is still an album that confounds with every listen and should be the cornerstone of any good music collection.

Earlier on Sunday it’s also worth seeking our Annie Dressner. Since moving from her hometown of NYC to London almost 11 years ago she has rightly won rave reviews for her recordings and live performances.  She has picked up considerable support from Radio 2 and 6 Music and quietly become somewhat of a music festival veteran appearing at Green Man, Secret Garden Party, and Cambridge Folk Festival to name just a few. Her engaging and authentic story-teller style is easy to love.

If you want to discover even more new music, head to the Coffee Nero stage which is being programmed by our friends at Talent Banq.
