Rag‘n’Bone Man announces Forest Live dates for the summer
Rag‘n’Bone Man has announced dates as part of Forest Live 2021, the summer concert series presented by Forestry England.
Neo-blues & soul singer 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. Subsequent side-projects include the monster hit collaboration track ‘Giant’ with Calvin Harris. He is currently working on his sophomore album, set for release in 2021.
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.

Wildlife - Forestry England manages the biggest and most diverse area of land in England. From forests to heathlands, mountains to moors, farmland to urban green spaces. Over half of our landscapes are covered by statutory designations, including Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs), Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) and National Parks making them some of the most valuable habitats for nature. Recently we have reintroduced sea eagles and pine martens back to the countryside.
People - Forestry England encourages adventures on their 1,800 miles of trails. 99% of people live within an hour’s drive of one of our forests.
Timber - Forestry England plants and harvests millions of trees every year to keep them sustainably supplying around half of the country’s home-grown timber. The timber is used in everything from homebuilding to furniture–making.
Businesses - Forestry England supports local businesses with over 500 private companies operating in the nation’s forests.
