Guitar slinger Kenny Wayne Shepherd is the latest act to join this years' Ramblin' Man Fair line-up. Headlining the Outlaw Country stage, the American player will bring his laid back licks along with headliners The Darkness, Black Stone Cherry and Foreigner to the festival which takes place at Mote Park, Maidstone from 19th - 21st July, 2019.
2019's Ramblin' Man follows on from the 2018 event, which saw The Cult, Steel Panther & Mott The Hoople ramble on, and 2017, which saw Extreme, ZZ Top, and Saxon put on a show fit for a king.
Shepherd's addition follows his appearance in 2017, where he told eonmusic; "I’m excited about it. It’s our first actual music festival in the UK, and I think it’s a really good one. There’s lots of good bands, and there’s several stages."
The Louisiana born axeman and songsmith has sold millions of albums while throwing singles into the Top 10, shining a light on the rich blues of the past and forging ahead with his own modern twist on a classic sound he has embodied since his teens.
