JULY 2020 UPDATE
As you were already aware due to the current pandemic COVID-19 we had to cancel our next event the Jon Palmer Band and subsequently the rest of the 2020 programme. This event will now take place in 2021.
We can now inform you that the committee is now busy looking to arrange dates and artists for our 2021 programme and we will share the information as soon as we are able to.
This decision is based on the current guidelines issued by Public Health, the World Health Organisation and the Government. All of us on the Committee feel that people’s safety must be our priority at this uncertain time.
We will of course keep the situation under review and keep you updated via our website and facebook page.
In the meantime please keep safe and keep washing your hands!
Welcome to the website of Ulverston Live Music (ULM), a group of local enthusiasts who bring the best of live folk, blues and acoustic music to Ulverston, in the beautiful southern end of the English Lake District. ULM is a not-for-profit venture. All proceeds are ploughed back into the group, for bringing more artists to the area and to invest in equipment.
Gigs take place every month at Ulverston Sports Club, and a diverse mix they are, from Les Barker, While and Matthews, Vin Garbutt, Chris James, Sean Taylor, Dick Gaughan, Devil’s Interval, Fake Thackray to the Cajun Roosters, Show of Hands, Hadrian’s Union, Jon Palmer Band, Jigantics, Merry Hell and The Gerry Colvin Band. There’s something for everyone.
ULM puts on larger gigs at Ulverston’s Coronation Hall. Acts you might have seen there include Fairport Convention, The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, The Lancashire Hotpots, Martin Simpson, Blue Tapestry, and Half Man Half Biscuit, as well as a Feast Of Fiddles, a supergroup of musicians with at least six top fiddle players fronting a driving back line of guitars, drums and organ.
Interested artists and agents should go to the About Us page for details of how to promote their act.
