The Songwriter Sessions return to the deer park this summer!
Offering ticket-holders a unique opportunity to experience the stories behind the songs of some of their favourite artists, The Songwriter Sessions will open each day on the main stage.
“Black Deer Festival has storytelling at its very heart,” says festival co-founder Deb Shilling. “The Songwriter Sessions are an absolute highlight and offer our community the opportunity to listen to a unique and carefully curated group of artists play songs that mean so much to them and to hear the stories behind the music, you might never see the same artists on the same stage together again.”
The much-loved Black Deer Songwriter Sessions will take place on the main stage across each day of the festival and include performances from Frank Turner, Imelda May and returning favourite Irish Mythen.
