We’ve just confirmed Roachford as our headline act for Sunday 5th October. What a great way to close the inaugural festival. The line-up is filling rapidly with a diverse range of talent. Full details are on the Hayfest artists page.

I’m delighted to be on the small but highly motivated Hayfest organisers team; we’ve already got the brilliant Andy Fairweather Low signed up as
Life’s been a bit manic since the new year. I’ve been working on several projects and haven’t had a weekend off since February. I’ve just unleashed the fruit of some of these labours: This Day In Country Music went live at 2:30 am BST. I developed it for This Day In Music as a specialised
