What a truly superb concert that was on Saturday, for our March Lockdown Livestream! Thank you so much to all those who tuned in, donated, commented, shared our social media posts and went on to buy music from the musicians! And of course, HUGE thanks and appreciation go to the four participating artists – Sierra Hull, Hannah Read, Isa Burke and Caitlin Canty for their exceptional music and performances – please visit their websites linked above, buy their music, sign up to their newsletters and follow them on social media! Many thanks as well as to Arts Council England for the funding support. If you missed the livestream – or if you want to re-live the magic – you can watch the concert video below, and donations are still open over the next week.

Funding support from Arts Council England
We want to acknowledge again the generous support of Arts Council England which awarded us funding from the Project Grants: Supporting Grassroots Live Music fund back in October 2020. This has helped to underwrite this three-part online series, helped True North Music to continue in the face of a huge loss of work and income, and enabled us to pay all theparticipating musicians a reasonable guaranteed fee. We’ll update you some time soon with a full report on this project and how it all went (very successfully!) but wanted to give a quick update and thanks after the wonderful concert at the weekend.
Please follow us on social media to stay tuned for news of upcoming events! We’re starting to make provisional plans for our Yorkshire & Americana festival on the 3rd/4th July weekend, which will likely be a completely online event, but we will be keeping a close eye on the situation as the UK starts to ease lockdown restrictions, and will tailor our plans accordingly
