What they say about True North Music events

We work with some of the finest acoustic musicians in the world – and that’s no exaggeration! Luckily for us, the connections we have made over the years in the bluegrass, old time and Americana music scenes mean that we have a direct line to some of the very best in the business. Here’s some of the great feedback we’ve had from promoters, fans and musicians themselves…

Streaming Across the Sea (dance workshop)

April was great and the workshop was well taught. The steps covered were well thought through as it was possible to do a basic step throughout or develop the more advanced steps if you’re an experienced dancer.

Streaming Across the Sea, 4th July concert

Lovely concert, the singing and playing were so skilled and the politics communicated really worthwhile. Very much enjoyed it.

Fall into Autumn virtual festival workshops

Workshops were long enough to cover plenty without being too long to concentrate. Good array of different areas covered between the three workshops, and great artists running them all very professionally with lots of audience input for what they would like from the time and Q&As.

Abbey T, Cornwall

Yorkshire live music series

Maria has a genuine passion for contemporary and traditional folk/roots and Americana music and an excellent ear for rising talent. She combines these skills with her extensive experience in marketing, enabling True North Music to deliver outstanding live music to local communities in rural Yorkshire.

Jaywalkers, Huddersfield concert

Thanks so much for putting us on at the LBT last night! We had a great time and it was a testament to all of your hard work over the last few months that the room was full and the gig was a success! I wish all gig promoters were as active, passionate and communicative as you were ... great job  

Mike Giverin, Jaywalkers (artist)

Ron Block & Tony Furtado

Brilliant gig last night...thanks again for organising the tour and fitting us in. It was a real personal highlight as Ron and Tony are two of my all-time favourite musicians and to have the opportunity to see them playing together was fantastic!
