Well it’s been a while coming, apologies for that, but we laboured with a fairly, er, laborious system for some weeks before realising it was crap and we’d have to start again. Huge thanks to John Vaites for putting in some time to making this work. The guide will hopefully develop into the main place for finding out what’s going on in and around wherever you are in the country. You can search by your town, a venue name or artist name – it also has links to where the venue is and to buy tickets for the gig. You can find the guide here, along with details of how to get your gigs listed if you’re a promoter (which is super easy). Nick Robinson (not that one) will be our new Gig Guide Editor so do drop him a line if you have any comments. Enjoy the guide and have a good weekend, dear beloved readers.Please help to support americana in the UK by donating £2 a month to us - we'll send you an exclusive 20 track curated playlist every month plus the opportunity to win tickets and CDs.
