The Fife-born star joins acts indie Athlete, Badly Drawn Boy and Mercury Award nominee Seth Lakeman in the festival line-up which will combine award-winning chefs and food with live music.

Special festival

Celebrity chefs James Martin and Genarro Contaldo and Anjum Anand are also making special appearances at the rural festival.

Festival goers will also be invited to get up close and personal with a whole range of the farm’s inhabitants including pigs, sheep, cattle, goats and peacocks.

Jimmy said: “This is a very special festival which we hope will be the first of many, and to have some of the country’s finest chefs like James Martin, Gennaro Contaldo and Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen cooking for us will be a real treat and will showcase our locally sourced food at its best.”

The popular BBC2 documentary followed Essex boy Jimmy Doherty realise his dream as he set up his own pig farm in Suffolk despite having no previous farming experience.

Doherty is currently filming another series, Global Farm, for the BBC in which he visits Australia and Brazil along with a one-off documentary, Field to Plate, which looks at the food import industry.

KT’s latest project is as part of the latest Rhythms del Mundo album, ‘Classics’ which has been produced to raise awareness and funds for climate crisis projects and natural disaster relief.

The sublime talent of Cuba’s finest musicians together with the unmistakable vocals of artists including KT, Amy Winehouse, The Killers, Jack Johnson, The Rolling Stones and the Kaiser Chiefs results in a unique album merging Afro-Cuban rhythms with some of the most memorable songs of the last 40 years.
