21 June 2016 news
FRIDAY 1ST, 2ND & 3RD JULY
‘Maverick is a Wild Western village in East Anglia where last year I was able to see many of the musicians that I usually see here in Nashville. And as Nashville residents, Emma Swift and I are now both qualified to play Maverick; it’s twangy, and, amazingly – it’s British.
Plus it features goats, a vintage bus, and proper toilets: yaysville!’ ROBYN HITCHCOCK

The Maverick Festival showcases the best in Americana / Roots music, from both sides of theAtlantic, across five stages, situated in the beautiful Suffolk countryside. Due to unforeseen circumstances, unfortunately Los Pacaminos have had to cancel their performance at this year’s Maverick Festival. We are very excited to welcome YOLA CARTER to this year’s line-up! A force of nature, her powerhouse voice and stage presence, superb original songs and striking arrangements combine to create a sensational live show.

We are excited to announce that legendary songwriter ROBYN HITCHCOCK will perform at the festival this year. Recently relocated to East Nashville following his successful collaboration with Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Robyn, who made a surprise appearance at the festival last year, brings his own blend of beautiful eccentricity back to Maverick.
Next in line we would like to welcome JON LANGFORD to the Maverick 2016 bill – Founding member of the legendary MEKONS and WACO BROTHERS, performing his own set as well as exhibiting the outsider-art for which he has more recently made his name.
Then we have the HACKENSAW BOYS. Hailing from the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, the band is all about finger picking banjos, fiddles and baritone harmonies wrung through the punk rock blue-grass ringer. They have played the major US festivals, appeared at the iconic Ryman Auditorium and backed the legendary Charlie Louvin. In 2012 they were nominated for Best Bluegrass Group in the INDEPENDENT COUNTRY AWARDS.
