1000 Mile Highway were formed in early 2009 and quickly put together a set of American roots music, country and country rock that immediately won them a massive fan base which now numbers in the 10's!! Since then, the band have played many festivals including Wilderness, Cornbury, Riverside, The Skittle Alley Weekender, Nor Lye and Witney Music Festival. We have also played gigs across Oxfordshire in pubs and clubs, including spots at Fat Lil's in Witney and the main Oxfordshire venues. 

Towards the end of 2018 Ian Hall left to join Oxford band The Factory Lights. We began rehearsing new material and thinking about a replacement; almost immediately we were joined in January 2019 by the excellent Jessica Marshall on fiddle. We have now played a number of gigs with the new line-up and are happy to say it has been well received.

We are delighted to be included in the line-up for Wilderness 2019, not least because this means we will have performed at every Wilderness Festival! Last year we opened proceedings on the Travelling Barn on Sunday morning but this year we will be playing in a large yurt on the opening day of the Festival, Thursday 1 August. We hope to see you there!

In the meantime, you can check out our music on this site as we have just received recordings of a live performance at Green Rooms Studios in March this year, the first with new band member Jess Marshall.
