Folk Roots Fringe

Chapel Allerton Festival Folk Roots Fringe is bouncing back again in 2024 after a bumper year in 2023.

As will the Sanctuary Seeking Singers performance at the Seven Arts courtyard at 5pm. Please join us for this celebration of talent, creativity and resilience.  More details here:

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.
