With a career spanning over three decades, Billy Bragg
is an icon of stripped-back storytelling and fearless political activism
His ongoing punk-charged documentation of British life saw Bragg honoured the PRS Outstanding Contribution to British Music Award at the Ivor Novello awards last year as he continues to be a valuable and relevant force in contemporary music; his appearance, at Black Deer Festival, will be one of the festival's highlights.
With a voice like no other, the ever-fierce Yola
is set to captivate the Black Deer Festival audience with surefire hits from her debut album Walk Through Fire
Recording her debut release with Dan Auberbach of The Black Keys, Yola is one of the UK country's fast-rising stars, overcoming adversity with a tenacious spirit and an undeniable passion for music, sparking inspiration with her unique country-soul sound.
2012 Brit Award winner Ethan Johns
is playing not only solo sets but also with Black Eyed Dogs.
Famed for his engineering, production and mixing work with the likes of Paul McCartney, Kings Of Leon, Ray LaMontagne and Tom Jones, Ethan released his fourth EP Anamnesis in September 2018.
Written over two weeks in Ethan's London home, the producer described the experience as "legitimately one of the best times I've ever had making a record."
London folk rock outfit Treetop Flyers
have truly stamped their mark on the international folk scene since winning the Glastonbury Festival Emerging Talent Competition

Elsewhere, Treetop Flyers' Soulful vocalist Sam Beer will also make a solo appearance at Black Deer, bringing his American delta blues-inspired songs from his Great Barr Colony EP to Eridge Park.
Husband and wife duo Ida Mae
, a.k.a Chris Turpin and Stephanie Jean, are rapidly becoming the hottest names in alt folk rock.
