|About||Concert series based in Wigan, Lancashire, UK featuring the best in folk, blues, roots and acoustic music from around the world|
This group has been set up to provide you with information about the Acoustic Roots series of concerts based at The Old Courts and Wigan Parish Church.
Founded in May 2009 by concert promoter extraordinaire David Cartlidge, the concerts feature some of the top musicians and performers from the folk, roots and blues world. Previous artists playing at the church include Show Of Hands, Geoff Muldaur, Ashley Hutchings MBE, The Lindisfarne Story, and Chris Leslie to name but five.
We pride ourselves in using venues with excellent acoustics, and have a queue of musicians waiting to add us to their tours. We provide excellent sound and customer service to our musicians, the former of which has resulted in a number of live recordings having been made at the concerts and released internationally, thanks to the skills of our resident sound engineer, Ian Cleverdon of Karona Sound (www.karonasound.co.uk).
Following the sad loss of David Cartlidge in September 2016, the Acoustic Roots legacy is continuing and run by David Hiney, Dan Hiney and Ian Cleverdon.

If you are interested in playing as part of the series, please send a private message to our team rather than posting on the page.
