So the same people who have been bringing us C2C are finally pulling together a whole week of country events across London from 2nd to 8th October 2017. This is such an exciting time for country music in the UK and this dedicated week will bring both UK and US artists to London to showcase their talents in a way not possible before.
It's so important to support upcoming artists and, while it's great that so many huge and established artists can have the stage at C2C, the smaller stages often lack opportunity with their limited capacities. This week in October, however, will allow more acts to have the spotlight and gain their well-deserved recognition in the close-knit UK County Music community.
Let me know who you'd love to see at the Country Music Week!
