And the good news keeps on coming here at Near Gatten Farm – we’re super excited to announce that Shrewsbury’s blues sensation Dan Owen will be returning to perform Farmer Phil’s Festival this year! Blues Boy Dan, as he’s known to many, is a huge favourite of ours at Farmer Phil’s – his signature guitar sound is accompanied by a distinctive voice that belies his years, conjuring memories of Tom Waits at his best. Fresh from a 50-date run around the UK in late 2015, Dan hit the road again this week, taking in shows covering the length of the country.
“Dan Owen is a phenomenal talent” – Mick Fleetwood
After seeing a video of Dan Owen playing ‘The Ballad of Hollis Brown’ on YouTube, Fleetwood Mac’s Mick Fleetwood described him as a “phenomenal talent” and has since become his mentor. Dan’s talent has subsequently taken him all over the world and we think the inclusion of Dan Owen at 2016’s Farmer Phil’s Festival just might be one of the highlights of the whole show. Why not decide for yourself? Tickets are going fast, but we still have some available – grab yours now!
