Thank You To our Sponsors


Live music from The Dead Blind Mcjones Band and Joe Kemp kept the Party swinging.

The wonderful Chris (The man in a hat) Martin as Master of Ceremonies steered the proceedings with much laughter and humour, and of course award winners received their awards.

It was a fun night celebrating and valuing the great work done by everybody involved in getting local music out- the diverse creativity that is Yorkshires grass roots music scene.

Warm Thanks to Jim and Sue McLaughlin and Musicport for letting us hold the Awards at their wonderful Musicport Festival.
