Maverick Festival, nothing to do with the magazine in case you’re worried about being trapped in a line dancing, er, square for 3 days (this may have been a dream…) have announced their 2018 line-up which looks like an average americana fan’s
wet dry and sunny dream. The bill includes North Carolina’s Jonathan Byrd (who without resorting to hyperbole is fairly incredible), husband and wife duo The Danberrys, Canadian Alt-country singer-songwriter Leeroy Stagger, Juno award nominee Terra Lightfoot and Southern blues rocker Arkansas Dave.
The festival takes place from Friday 6th – Sunday 8th July amongst the picturesque Victorian farm buildings of Easton Farm Park, with music performances, film & workshops and over forty different artists across five stages indoors and out.
