Ramblin’ Man Fair is delighted to announce further acts to join the already impressive bill. The Rock Collective and TeamRock presents… event will bring the best of Classic Rock, Progressive Rock, Country and Blues to Mote Park in Maidstone, Kent over the weekend of 25th and 26th July 2015.
Saturday 25th will see an Outlaw Country Stage that will include
Shooter Jennings is genuine country music royalty – the son of the legendary Waylon Jennings. Since the release of his 2005 album Put The ‘O’ Back In Country, he has defined outlaw country in the modern era. As allmusic.com stated: “Shooter Jennings has always demanded to be taken on his own terms.”
Hayseed Dixie are the undisputed kings of heavy metal/bluegrass fusion. Named in punning tribute to rock legends AC/DC, the band have been delivering high-octane hillbilly versions of classic rock songs since 2001. Their new album, Hair Down To My Grass, is released in 2015.
Sunday 26th will see a Blues Stage that will include
Joanne Shaw Taylor is a leading figure on the modern blues scene. Inspired by Stevie Ray Vaughan, Albert Collins and Jimi Hendrix, her music is described by The Sunday Times as a blend of “killer licks, soaring solos and heart-wrenching vocals.” The Daily Telegraph stated: “Joanne Shaw Taylor has enough soul to compete with the best the Mississippi Delta has to offer.”
“I am very happy to announce I will be performing at this, the first ever Ramblin’ Man Festival. It looks to be the first of a continually successful festival and I am very excited to perform there.” – Joanne Shaw Taylor
Aaron Keylock is only sixteen but a veteran of over 200 shows – including support slots with Slash, Joe Bonamassa and Blackberry Smoke. His fiery brand of blues-rock has been compared to the late, great Rory Gallagher. Definitely one to watch.
