Ramblin’ Man Fair is pleased to announce further acts for 2018 as Myles Kennedy, Skinny Molly, Thomas Wynn And The Believers, Second Relation and No Hot Ashes join the lineup.
Myles Kennedy (Country Stage, Special Guest) – as the singer/songwriter of Alter Bridge and also Slash’s band Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators, Kennedy has established himself as one of the defining rock voices of his generation. 2018 saw the release of his first solo album Year Of the Tiger. The sound and lyrical content of the album is very different to what fans of Kennedy might expect – “I’ve always wanted to make a record where I could have the opportunity to explore and document a different element of my musical DNA,” he says, citing his love for the blues, R&B, and acoustic based music and listing such influences as Mississippi John Hurt, Chris Whitley, K.D Lang, Nick Drake and the acoustic songs on Led Zeppelin 3 and 4. “I was trying to tap into something a little more subtle, as opposed to a big, bombastic, high gain sonic attack.” Ramblin’ Man Fair are hugely honoured to welcome Myles Kennedy as the Special Guest on the Country Stage in 2018 – his first UK festival appearance as a solo artist.
Ramblin’ Man Fair is the must-see event for discerning festival goers. A quality musical line up with a number of UK exclusive performances. The event is a unique experience fast becoming a staple of the UK festival calendar. The festival will take place in the beautiful Mote Park in Maidstone, Kent – the garden of England. The park is one of the largest in South East England with more than 450 acres of mature parkland and a 30-acre lake. With multiple travel links via train (Ashford International, Maidstone East and Maidstone West in close proximity) and road (with three park and rides available around Maidstone). The festival site is also perfect for European festival goers with easy links to the London airports, Eurostar via Ashford Int’l and Channel Ferries to and from mainland Europe.
