True North Music

True North Music music promoter

True North Music is an award-winning local music promoter bringing you the very best in Americana, bluegrass and folk/roots music. Organiser Maria Wallace puts on live concerts at several venues across Yorkshire, featuring talented musicians from across the USA, Canada and UK, and has presented several exceptional online events too.

True North Music has hosted over 50 successful and well-received gigs in Meltham, Marsden, Huddersfield, Holmfirth and Sheffield since early 2015, with an ongoing music series that's currently gone virtual due to the pandemic. Winner of the Outstanding Promoter Award at the Yorkshire Gig Guide Grassroots Awards 2017, Maria was also a finalist in the 2019 YGG awards. In spring 2019 she completed the prestigious Leadership Bluegrass course in Nashville run by the International Bluegrass Music Association.

After running all her events completely independently for many years, in 2020 Maria was successful in her first two applications for Arts Council England funding (Project Grants: Supporting Grassroots Live Music strand). True North Music was awarded funding both to run the first Yorkshire Americana & Bluegrass Day festival (postponed to summer 2021) and for a winter 2020/21 online music series which was a big success.

As well as being a dynamic grassroots promoter and booking agent, Maria Wallace is also a singer, songwriter and musician herself, playing bluegrass, folk and Americana. The connections and relationships she's built over the past decade have helped True North Music bring some of the very best roots artists to Kirklees for some world class live music events.
