On these pages you can see details of artists who are actively seeking bookings at Federation clubs.

Please click on the picture links below to see more details of the artistes and bands listed.

Organisers - Please contact the artist directly (not through this site).

Artistes - Please send your details to us, giving as much information as possible including a photograph if you have one, and we will consider giving you a link on these pages. If you browse through the pages you will see the kind of information you should send. Please note that we do not include time-sensitive information such as your up-coming gigs, etc., as a link to your own website should suffice.

Whilst Folk North West hopes that information on these pages will lead to artists obtaining gigs, we can give no guarantee of a booking, and artists are advised also to contact club organisers themselves to arrange an extended floor spot with a view to a booking at a future time.

If you have any comments about the Hiring Fair, or you would like to be included in the listing, please contact us and let us know.

Please note that there is a £10 one-off charge for inclusion in the Hiring Fair – this will be invoiced to you by Folk North West.
