AND THE AMA-UK ARTIST WINNER FOR 2018 IS…

Black Deer Festival UK AMA

With our shared passion for nurturing and supporting UK Americana artists it was a natural collaboration to invite members of The AMA-UK to apply for a slot to play at this year’s Black Deer Festival.
 
With an incredible line-up of artists for our debut festival, the opportunity to join the talent and celebrate the authentic way of life we all love, was certainly embraced. With over 100 entries to the competition, it took some serious consideration and many hours, to choose the winner.
 
Taking to the stage on Sunday 24th June the chosen artist joins a host of respected musicians at a very special place on site – Hayley’s Bar. This is somewhere full of memories, good times and great music. And we’re delighted to welcome self-confessed devotee of ‘real music’, ROBBIE CAVANAGH to the stage.
 

 
Taking influence and inspiration from old school country and western, modern americana, pop, blues, soul, folk, rock, metal and everything in between, this is a man not defined by one genre.
 

“The only rules are good musicians, real instruments, great microphones and performance with emotion. Capturing sound, not producing it.”

 
Expect to hear self-penned tales of heartbreak, loss, love and discovery that flows with honesty, emotion, and most importantly; instinct.
 
We’re looking forward to welcoming Robbie live at Black Deer Festival this June. His performance will be one to watch; it is where you’ll see him channelling his emotions with passion and energy, most fitting for this special place…
