Our 2019 music series was another corker for True North Music – see here for details – and we had a cracking start to 2020 with Newberry & Verch, but sadly since March 2020 the pandemic has put paid to our real-life live music programme. We postponed our Yorkshire Americana & Bluegrass Day to 2021 (look out for news in the coming weeks) and we are keeping the live music flame burning with occasional live streamed events.
We live streamed our virtual Yorkshire Americana & Bluegrass concert back in May 2020, and followed up with our Fall into Autumn Virtual Festival in October. This featured performances from eight fantastic Americana, bluegrass and roots artists from the UK and USA, many of whom should have been performing for us in person this year. There were also workshops in songwriting, guitar and body percussion. Look out for our upcoming Lockdown Livestreams with the next gig coming up on 20th February 2021! We’ve also booked a number of “our” artists to perform for other UK streaming series in recent months, including The Live Room at Saltaire.
