One of the biggest names in UK country will headline the main stage. Originally from Liverpool and now resident in Ireland, Nathan Carter is one of the Emerald Isle’s most successful artists, outselling One Direction, Pharrell Williams and Michael Buble, becoming the first country act to reach number one in the Irish charts in 2013 after Garth Brooks six years earlier. With over 12.5m streams this year alone, Blackpool is readying itself for a deluge of Irish fans to be in the resort for the festival weekend. Supported by the amazing Kezia Gill and Holloway Road, the Empress Ballroom will be rocking and our festival host Matt Spracklen will DJ through until 1am.
The party starts on Saturday from 12 noon with the winner of The Bob Harris Emerging Artist Award 2021, the wonderful Demi Marriner. The arena stages are packed with artists back to back through until 6.45pm, many of whom will be headlining festivals across the country within the next couple of years. You cannot afford to miss anyone!
With a wonderful mix of country, Americana and roots music, the entire lineup is worthy of the main stage. Tennessee Twin, Robbie Cavanagh, Hayley McKay, Jess Thristran, Cormac Neeson, Blue Rose Code, Pete Riley, Morganway, Tommy Atkins and Bailey Tomkinson are all performing on the Arena stages.
There will also be a breath-taking Songwriters Carousel hosted by Tim Prottey-Jones with surprise guests on the Horseshoe Stage, along with acoustic performances from Bethany Nelson, Eleri Angharad, Ben Holland, Rosso Duo, Bryony Sier and Zoe Newton.
The Empress Ballroom launches at 7pm with Katy Hurt and we are thrilled that the magnificent Elles Bailey will be taking to the stage just prior to our Saturday night headliners, Wildwood Kin. The amazing Gareth Nugent and his band will close the live section of the evening with a dance set, before Absolute Country Radio presenter and festival host Matt Spracklen keeps you all on the Empress Ballroom dance floor with a DJ set through till 1am.
It’s an 11am start on Sunday at TBCMF and our last day always has a special atmosphere as we head straight to the Empress Ballroom. Singer-songwriter, music producer and Chris Country Radio Presenter ,Tim Prottey-Jones launches the final day with his own band. Then performances by Manchester band Fine Lines and Americana’s finest Martin Harley.
We also welcome one of only two international artists at this year’s festival. Described by Dolly Parton as a star and “… one of the greatest singer-songwriters I’ve ever heard, bar none..”, Nashville based Candi Carpenter is making a rare appearance in the UK at TBCMF on Sunday. This will be just before our fantastic headliner Lisa McHugh, who has been named Female Vocalist of the Year five times.
The party concludes with The Orange Circus Band and our festival weekend closes at 6pm on Sunday. What a line-up of talent, a wonderful musical celebration of the best UK singer-songwriters. You are all in for a long awaited treat….live music is back!
