Robert Plant will play at this year’s Black Deer Festival.

Plant’s new band, Saving Grace, is the final headliner to be confirmed for the festival; previously-announced headliners are Wilco and The Waterboys.

Saving Grace is billed as a co-operative featuring Plant alongside Suzi Dian (vocals), Oli Jefferson (percussion), Tony Kelsey (mandolin, baritone & acoustic guitars) and Matt Worley (banjo, acoustic and baritone guitars and cuatro). Saving Grace played UK shows last year, including three with Fairport Convention in February 2019.

The line-up also includes Courtney Marie Andrews, The Felice Brothers, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Shovels & Rope, Imelda May, as well as Shooter Jennings and Sam Duckworth / Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.

“This looks like a great bill,” says Plant. “I’ve worked alongside most of these people in recent times… over here or over there… there’s power and beauty. Looking forward to it…”
