29.04.21 – Black Deer Festival will be the first major music event to take place in the UK in June. The Kent festival, which is held in the grounds of England’s oldest deer park in Eridge Park, has already made a name for itself for its unique offering of authentic Americana, Southern-inspired food and drink and forest school style children’s activities. With a recent surge in ticket sales, organisers are confident that they will welcome people back through the gates this summer with plans to make Black Deer Festival the place to be when lockdown restrictions are eased on June 21st. Black Deer are excited to let ticketholders know that some of the biggest names in live music have reconfirmed for the June 2021 dates with a top line-up including legendary Belfast Cowboy Van Morrison, Robert Plant’s latest collaboration Saving Grace with Suzi Dian, Irish roots superstar singer and songwriter Imelda May, award-winning songwriter Jake Bugg and emerging UK Americana artist Jade Bird. “This will be the first gig for me and the band since March 2020. We just can’t wait to get out and play for everyone. It can’t come soon enough!” – Jake Bugg

Latest names added to an already-acclaimed 2021 line-up are Jake Bugg, The Cuban Brothers, Ginger Wildheart & The Sinners, Kitty, Daisy and Lewis, Danny George Wilson, Blue Rose Code, The Bar Steward Sons of Val Doonican, Treetop Flyers, The Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell, Steak, Broken Witt Rebels, Powerhouse Gospel Choir, Old Time Sailors, Hannah White, Jonathan Terrell, King Creature, The Orange Circus Band, The Paul Dunton Orchestra, Luke Jackson, Hayley Ross, Ruby Dew, James Kirby, Dull Knife, Simeon Hammond Dallas, Jinda Biant, Eddy Smith and the 507, Chris Fox, The Mountain Firework Company, Hobo and the Hippies, My Girl the River, Izzie Yardley, Coney Island Maybe, The River Flows, Ava’Mae, Rattlesnake Hearts, Phil Hooley, Red, Green and Blue and David Mumford.

Returning to the festival this year are the much-loved Black Deer Songwriter Sessions which will take place on the main stage across each day of the festival and include performances from Frank Turner, Imelda May and returning favourite Irish Mythen. The Songwriter Sessions are a unique opportunity to see this calibre of artists together on stage talking in depth about their music and revealing the stories that have inspired their songwriting.
Showcasing music of an independent spirit across multiple stages, exquisite live fire cooking, layers of Americana inspired lifestyle and custom motorcycle culture, Black Deer is a family staycation destination with a community ethos.

“We’re very excited to be able to push our plans, bring together our beloved community for a 2021 edition of Black Deer and deliver one hell of a (safe!) summer party. The UK live music industry has been hit hard and we feel it is so important to support our artists, their teams and the wider festival community at the earliest opportunity. It’s not going to be easy, but we’re doing everything we canto make Black Deer Festival 2021 one to remember!”Gill Tee & Deborah Shilling, Co-Founders

“I am excited beyond words to be getting back into the live saddle again, playing with my band to a
real audience – after the year we’ve had, it’s an incredible feeling. It feels good to kick off with an independent festival as well. I can’t wait!”
Frank Turner

Festival 2021.

The Orange Acoustic Pedal takes all the know-how of our acclaimed Acoustic Pre TC preamp and Crush Acoustic 30 amplifier, cramming it all into a do-it-all, compact preamp pedal. Whether you need to win the battle against feedback, handle complex effects chains, brighten up a dull instrument or just plug into a PA, the Acoustic Pedal has you covered – in top-notch Orange style.

With a low-noise JFET circuit design, surgical-yet-flattering EQ, XLR and 1/4″ outputs and a buffered FX Loop, all situations are taken care of. This high-headroom, high-quality pedal keeps your setup simple and controlled, leaving you free to do what you do best. Play.

Here we’ve got American country guitarist and Orange ambassador Doyle Dykes both reviewing, and demoing the pedal: «It has the best mid-section I’ve ever seen on any pedal.»

Review above, demos below. Enjoy!

Orange Amplification are pleased to announce the launch of the new Acoustic Pedal. This do-it-all, compact pre-amp pedal has been designed and built using all the company’s know-how from the acclaimed Acoustic Pre TC preamp and the Crush Acoustic 30 amplifier.

Crammed with features, this highly versatile pedal, with its simple controls and set up, leave guitarists free to do what they do best – play! Whether you need to win the battle against feedback, handle complex effects chains, brighten up a dull instrument or just plug into a PA, the Acoustic Pedal has you covered.

The pedal’s low-noise JFET circuit design guarantees low levels of background noise, without hiss, whilst still maintaining super-high headroom for a clean, clear acoustic tone. Its powerful, notch controlled EQ is precise and unassuming, allowing players to subtly sculpt their sound and tackle feedback. The fixed Bass and Treble knobs provide control of the ‘body’ and ‘sparkle’ of an instrument, whilst the highly-transparent, buffered FX Loop offers acoustic players the perfect signal chain for enviable loopers, reverbs and delays.

The pedal can be connected directly to a P.A with its balanced XLR output and can be used simultaneously with the additional ¼’ mono jack for the ultimate flexibility.

The Orange Acoustic Pedal is a single ended, Class A, Acoustic Preamp, with a Full Parametric Midrange / Notch Filter and a Buffered FX Loop…….. total tonal control, low noise and ultra -transparent.To find out more please go to https://orangeamps.com/.
