Following on from the critically acclaimed and commercially successful fourth year in 2018, Ramblin’ Man Fair returns in 2019! This year the festival will move back its traditional end of July slot on the 19th, 20thand 21stJuly. Ramblin Man’ Fair announce Black Stone Cherry (Saturday’s Main Stage Headliner).

They join already announced acts Rock legends Foreigner (Sunday’s Main Stage Headliner) and American blues singer/songwriter Beth Hart (Blues Stage Headliner), Prog in the Park Headliner Anathema, The Darkness (Friday Main Stage Headliner), The Wildhearts (Friday Main Stage Special Guest), Living Colour (Main Stage), Koyo (Prog in the Park Stage), Orange Goblin (Grooverider Stage), Crobot (Grooverider Stage), Obsessed (Grooverider Stage), Robert Jon and the Wreck (Outlaw Stage) and Chris Robinson Brotherhood as well as more prog acts including Swedish act Pain of Salvation and polish prog giants Riverside.

Black Stone Cherry bridge the gap between the blue collar craftsmanship of dirty, blues-y, pedal-to-the-metal Hard Rock steeped in the ancestral lineage of Southern Rock and the warm, broad embrace of the rock radio mainstream. The band’s substantial catalogue include the critically acclaimed current studio album, ‘Family Tree’, plus their eponymous debut, ‘Folklore And Superstition’, ‘Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea’, ‘Magic Mountain and ‘Kentucky’, as well as hit singles such as ‘Lonely Train,’ ‘Blind Man,’ ‘White Trash Millionaire’, ‘Me and Mary Jane’ and ‘The Rambler.’

The group’s southern-tinged style and homespun attitude connected particularly well overseas, where its last four albums hit No. 1 on the U.K. rock charts, with both ‘Kentucky’ and ‘Magic Mountain’ debuting in the Top 5 on the U.K. album chart overall.  We are delighted to have them as our Sunday Headliners!

Black Stone Cherry say – “We are beyond excited to be making our second appearance at Ramblin’ Man Fair! We absolutely love this festival and the music and fans it accommodates!!!! Peace, love and southern rock n roll!”
