About Us

Pennine Sky Folk & Roots Music is an informal organisation run by Nigel & Sue Marriott (Lynes) and their musical friends who enjoy organising and promoting live Folk, Roots and Americana music, mainly in pub venues in the Yorkshire Dales.

We the organisers are volunteers who do all the admin for free, taking no money out of the budget which should be directed at the artists, technicians and staging of the events. We do however insist that all the musicians and technicians are paid a fee for their efforts and all ticket money goes to cover these costs.

We have run Folk Gatherings at the Green Dragon in Hardraw for 7 years and Roots Gatherings for 3 years. We have run 2 Folk & Roots Music weekends at Tan Hill as well as some informal session weekends at the Station Inn, Ribblehead.
