Maverick Festival Announces It’s Bill

Following a milestone 10th anniversary last year, the UK’s first and finest Americana festival is thrilled to announce the 2018 line up.

This year Maverick Festival will take place from Friday 6th – Sunday 8th July, showcasing the most authentic and talented musicians from both sides of the Atlantic. Over the past decade Maverick Festival organisers have stuck to what they believe in, presenting exciting and inspiring line-ups year after year.

First up we welcome North Carolina’s Jonathan Byrd to the bill; best known for his narrative tales of love, life and death in America, Jonathan will be heading over with his band to make his Maverick debut.  Returning to Maverick by popular request are one of the hottest acts to emerge from the gutsier underbelly of Nashville’s music scene – husband and wife duo The Danberrys (Ben DeBerry and Dorothy Daniel), who’s latest release created a huge amount of excitement and praise from critics from both sides of the Atlantic.

We also welcome Canadian Alt-country singer-songwriter Leeroy Stagger to this year’s line-up; Leeroy is a Canadian wordsmith with a punk Indie past who’s made quite a name for himself on the UK roots scene. Leeroy shares the bill with fellow Canadian and Juno award nominee Terra Lightfoot, who wowed crowds at last years festival with her stomping Blues / Rock.

Next in line we have Americana and Southern blues rock artist, Arkansas Dave; who is very much rooted in the music created by his predecessors. Dave’s music is interestingly original, blending with the humble sounds of the South. Heading over all the way from Kentucky are charming female duo The Local Honeys, who will be bringing their delightful Bluegrass sound to this years festival; plus, to top off the weekend we have some 100% original Junkerdash straight out of Idaho from Hillfolk Noir, a sound brewed from folk, bluegrass, punk and string-band blues!
