Black Cow Saloon: The Lowdown

The event will play host to an eclectic line-up of live performances from musicians spanning genres, as well as DJs until the early hours. Guests can expect live performances from the likes of Gaz Mayall and The Trojans, a ska and reggae band with a dash of soul, funk and R&B; indie-rock band Kartoum; eight-piece hunk-a-funk Clusterfunk; and American blues rock musician C.C. Adcock and his band The Lafayette Marquis.

There will be poetry from Murray Lachlan Young, food offerings from Mark Hix and Willie Harcourt- Cooze, and Alice Temperley will host a pop-up selling garments from her luxury fashion house Temperley London. There will also be a selection of food and drink stalls – including the Black Cow Espresso Martini Sidecar – serving local and seasonal produce.

Black Cow has a deep-rooted history in music. The name Black Cow is inspired by the Steely Dan song and The Black Cow Saloon – the brand’s travelling honky-tonk –has been a mainstay at some of the UK’s best-loved festivals since debuting at Port Eliot in 2017.
