Cross Country Digital Magazine

The pulse of Country Music in the UK

Cross Country is the ultimate place to come to find out who is on where in the UK as well as where to to find line dance and partner dance classes. It also provides a list of UK acts and advertisements for events, whether they be weekend events, full day or week-long and weekend Country music festivals. Cross Country also continues with its tradition of bringing you the pick of the latest dances.


Our thanks goes to the many Gig Guide contributors who help keep the list up to date, especially Ray Packham, Doreen Holder, Sid Randall and Nick Catford who regularly send updates.

Rob says … 23rd September 2022

It is now back to normal business after what seemed like forever in the run up to the Awards and we look forward to seeing you out and about in the clubs.

We do encourage interaction with fans so if you have any news or letters please email to us via the contact form.

Hot Tip
Thanks to Andrew & Sheila we now have two Hot Pick Dances which have been added to the September list. Check them out here.

Many moons ago we used to run a Country music agency and the time has come to bring it back, we should diversify and help the Country music acts and clubs from one central point. Having considered it we shall begin booking acts to clubs from January 2023 so if you want us to take care of your bookings from then or anytime in the future then get in touch at with your telephone number and we shall give you a call and chat about your requirements. It would be good to keep all things Country as centralized as possible to help keep costs down. Country music has always been my hobby and if there is a way I can keep the scene going and as profitable as possible for promoters and acts alike then I shall attempt do so.

We do have quite a comprehensive list of acts along with their contacts but if you think we should have your telephone number please send it along with your act name to
