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.

News …

We are currently updating the website with the December gig guide and dances so bear with us during this busy period.

Yet again we must thank Nick Catford for populating the ccPedia page, how else would we be able to know about the pedigree and history of our acts. His Services to Industry award is well deserved.

British Country Music Hall of Fame
The hall of fame page is ready, it has taken longer than expected to tweak but we are there. 

Club reviews
It is our intention to change the way that club reviews are available. If all goes well, from the new year, you will be able to click on a link in the gig listing to go directly to any reports or letters from that club, rather than having to trawl through many others before you get to the one you want to read. 
Please keep you reports and letters coming in. We thank those who help keep the Country music fans informed, without them it would be less of a popular scene.

The Cross Country shop is proving popular and it may become more so as the festive season approaches and Country fans buy cds for their friends. Check out the shop here.

Top 10 Dances
We still have the Top 10 dances coming in to help people with the latest dance floor fillers. It is easy to add yours, just click on this link. Go to Top 10.

A huge thank you should go to Andrew & Sheila who supply their pick of the dances each month for your enjoyment. Our Top 10s show they are making a good choice each month.

Gig List
Club promoters should send in their own gig lists rather than expect any agent they may use to inform us of who is on when. Any club which forgets or no longer sends in their list will be removed because there is no point in writing ‘To Be Confirmed (TBC)’ under the club heading.

Gig Guide
The December Gig Guide will be available soon for all subscribers.
If you are a promoter please send in your 2023 lists if you have them ready. Don’t forget, if you need the help of an agency then ask Cross Country, take a look at the advertisement below to see how we are already helping club and festival promoters for 2023. In the meantime, check that your club is listed correctly
We are continually updating the gig list so keep an eye on it before you travel any distance for a club.
