Rag‘n’Bone Man announces additional Forest Live 2022 concert

Rag‘n’Bone Man has added an extra date as part of Forest Live, the summer concert series presented by Forestry England, playing Delamere Forest in June 2022.

Rory Graham, aka Rag‘n’Bone Man, is an English singer-songwriter known for his distinctive baritone voice. Having won the 2017 BRIT’s ‘British Breakthrough Act’ and receiving the BRIT’s Critics’ Choice Award in the same year, Rag‘n’Bone Man cemented his success with the record-breaking release of his 4 x platinum No.1 album Human and a further BRIT Award for ‘British Single’ for the title track (Human) in 2018. The album has been recognised internationally, earning Rory sell-out tours and festival appearances around the globe. His eagerly anticipated new album 'Life By Misadventure’ went straight in at No. 1 preceded by lead single ‘All You Ever Wanted’ and latest release, ‘Anywhere Away From Here’, a collaboration with the incredible P!nk. Proceeds from a new version of this single performed with the Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Choir will go to NHS Charities.

Forest Live is a major outdoor live music series that introduces forests to new audiences in unique, natural woodland arenas around the country. Over 1.9 million people have attended a Forest Live gig in the last twenty years, enjoying great music and supporting the nation’s forests when buying a ticket. Going to a concert helps Forestry England create beautiful places for people to enjoy, run important conservation projects and keep growing trees. Every year they plant some 8 million trees sustainably, caring for the nation’s 1,500 woods and forests and welcoming 230 million visits annually.
