The British Country Music Festival
The British Country Music Festival (TBCMF) is a relatively new, independent festival launched in 2019, supporting contemporary, country-leaning songwriters from the UK and Ireland.
All indoors, our main stage is the iconic setting of The Empress Ballroom with its gilded, vaulted ceiling. This stunning venue attracts a music discovery audience, many of whom return each year.
The festival is renowned for its breath-taking setting and intimate atmosphere. An eclectic mix of music and a broad and deep definition of what might be considered country. The best traditional country music singer-songwriters from the UK and Ireland rub shoulders with established contemporary artists. They are covering the finest Americana, roots, blues and British indie-folk.
