Announced today, Black Stone Cherry return once more to headline Ramblin Man’ Fair!
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 Aanathema, 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, Crobot and Obsessed on the 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, with 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 UK rock charts, with both Kentucky and Magic Mountain debuting in the Top 5 on the UK album chart overall.
