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 were joined in January 2019 by the excellent Jessica Marshall on fiddle. As you can see from the gig list below, we will be performing again very soon!

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 will be in a new location this year and hope to see you there.
