NEWS: Final additions to the Black Deer Festival line-up announced

With an already stellar line-up of Americana bands and artists announced including headliners The Pretenders, Bonnie Raitt, Steve Earle, and Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, the 2023 edition of Black Deer Festival was already cooking on charcoals.

With the reveal of their final set of names, the festival has stepped it up another notch. Led by British roots royalty in Richard Hawley, other names that stand out are the legendary Patty Griffin, one of Nashville’s premier songwriters and cracking artist in her own right Brandy Clark, British folk’s premiere singer-songwriter Grace Petrie, as well as a set of terrific other additions like Jaime Wyatt, Emily Nenni, Brennen Leigh, and The Wandering Hearts.

Intriguingly Damien Lewis (yes, he of Band Of Brothers, Homeland, etc) has also been announced, following Kiefer Sutherland and Jessie Buckley taking the stage in previous years Black Deer is the go-to festival for Hollywood to paddle in the festival waters.
