First Artists Announced for Black Deer Festival 2023

Now is the time to reveal the first set of artists who are coming to the deer park in 2023. We’re delighted to announce a list of names that define Americana music and beyond, with a list of legends, emerging heroes and much-loved singers and songwriters set to play the fourth edition of Black Deer Festival.
Bonnie Raitt, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, The Teskey Brothers, Lucinda Williams, Calexico and Allison Russell are amongst the first major names we can reveal to you – with recent Grammy-nominated performers Bonnie Raitt and Allison Russell playing their only UK festivals of 2023 at Black Deer. They’ll be joined by Elles Bailey, Amythyst Kiah, Robert Vincent and Bella White – with many, many more names to follow soon. Festival favourites The Songwriter Sessions, Ozark Holler Hootenanny, Gospel Brunch and The Great Americana Songbook all return and the stage is set for the best Black Deer yet.
“I’m really looking forward to coming to Black Deer Festival. I hear it’s a real home away from home for American musicians. See you next summer!” – Bonnie Raitt
“We want to thank ticket-holders for the record-breaking pace at which you snapped up Super Early Bird and Early Bird tickets,” says co-founders Deb Shilling and Gill Tee. “We don’t take that kind of unwavering support for granted, particularly in these tough times, and we’re working so hard behind the scenes with our small but dedicated team to guarantee you another great Black Deer experience next summer. There’s a lot more to come, but we hope you agree that this initial announcement demonstrates our commitment to building Europe’s premier Americana playground once again. Bonnie Raitt, Nathaniel Rateliff, Lucinda Williams, Allison Russell… it reads like a who’s who of Americana music past and present. We can’t wait to welcome our community back into the deer park to enjoy it all!”
