Jessie Buckley, the star of British drama-country-musical film Wild Rose, will perform at Black Deer Festival this summer.
The news comes as Wild Rose arrives in cinemas and it will be the first chance for fans to see Buckley perform live anywhere during the summer. She will perform songs from the film’s soundtrack.
Black Deer co-founders and promoters Gill Tee and Deborah Shilling commented, “We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome the wonderful Jessie Buckley to Black Deer Festival. The music and culture this festival celebrates is rooted in authenticity and spirit and Jessie’s powerhouse performance in Wild Rose has this in spades. Country and Americana has never been more relevant and we’re delighted that Wild Rose is shining a light on the amazing singer/songwriters out there. There’s something very real about this music and it needs to be heard.”
Gritty, inspirational and heartwarming, Wild Rose embodies country music in its purest form with Jessie Buckley’s character Rose-Lynn Harlan seeking out understanding and belonging as a modern-day outlaw. Hailed as “Irresistible” by The Telegraph and “Wonderful” by The Hollywood Reporter, the film’s themes resonate on every level with the ethos and aesthetic of Black Deer festival, and stands as yet another testament to the UK’s growing toe-tappin’ feelings towards the immersive lifestyle and genre.
Black Deer Festival takes place at Eridge Park in Kent from 21st to 23rd June 2019. Tickets are available from https://blackdeerfestival.com/tickets/.
