Folk Roots Fringe 2023

Chapel Allerton Festival Folk Roots Fringe is bouncing back again in 2023 after a bumper year in 2022.

The folk fringe is again programmed by Alan Gibson who has a wealth of experience promoting gigs and mini tours with independent label artists at Acoustic Nights @ The Barn, Meanwood; Live @ Costa, Shipley; Hit The North Promotions; and livestreams on the iGigs Online facebook page. In the distant past Gibson toured artists in N Ireland with Paws Promotions; and on moving to Leeds set up Gibsue Mail Order Music and Redsky Music Records. The local popular and novel Chapel A House Concerts was another of Gibson’s inspirations before representing the eccentric and talented American artist Larry Norman in the UK/Europe.

This year the headline show at Seven Arts on Friday 1st Sept, has the popular “breathtakingly beautiful” Jake Isaac as the top billing. Check Jake’s hit single “Waiting Here” which accrued over 24 million Spotify plays. Will be an ace concert! Don’t be disappointed, buy your tickets at:
