Deacon Blue

Deacon Blue are a Scottish pop rock band formed in Glasgow during 1985. They will be making their first ever appearance at Wychwood Festival by closing the festival on Sunday 5th June 2022. The line-up of the band consists of vocalists Ricky Ross & Lorraine McIntosh, keyboard player James Prime and drummer Dougie Vipond. The band released their debut album, Raintown in 1987. Their second album, When the World Knows Your Name (1989), topped the UK Albums Chart for two weeks, and included Real Gone Kid which became their first top ten single in the UK Singles Chart.

The band split in 1994 but five years later they held a reunion gig which led on to a new album, Walking Back Home. Since then they have continued to perform and record new music. In February 2021, they released their tenth studio album entitled Riding on the Tide of Love to commercial success in both the UK and their native Scotland.
