Live music from Barcode Zebra 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 Barney Stevenson and Marsden Jazz Festivalt for letting us hold the Awards at their wonderful Marsden Festival.
