Clutch / Band to perform three sets at Ramblin’ Man Fair 2021

With this years Ramblin’ Man Fair succumbing to Corona cancellation, thoughts move to 2021 and today’s announcement that the sixth Fair will be held over 16-18 July 2021, will have many peoples mouths watering.

Clutch, one of the most exciting new generation of Rock acts, have introduced the idea of a Festival Residency, by agreeing to perform three different sets over the weekend.

Friday evening sees the band headline the Mainstage with their full-on set, while on Saturday the band will perform a Mainstage slower paced semi-acoustic set, before closing the event on Sunday evening with a Blues Stage headline jam featuring a host of special guests.

Neil Fallon from Clutch told us: “We are very flattered to have been asked to do three sets at Ramblin’ Man 2021. We plan to make each set as distinct as possible. The first set, on Friday, will be the barn burner, Saturday will be more of a semi-acoustic set, and for Sunday we plan to invite many friends to jam out to the end. Then, we will sleep.”

The Spirit Of Rocks (Ramblin’ Man Fair organisers) Chris Ingham tells us: “Ramblin’ Man Fair is committed to developing the festival headliners of tomorrow and, wherever we can to, innovate the established format of the Rock festival. It’s wonderful then that we can kill two birds with one stone and announce Clutch – the band of the moment in Rock terms – and our residency concept together.

“Three sets in three musical styles on three stages over three days – what better way is there for both Clutch and Ramblin’ Man Fair to lay out their collective visions?”
