Meet the team:

John de Burgh

The Marton Country Music Festival Team led by John de Burgh are a group of like minded people, who have a vision for a gathering of country music enthusiasts to share a weekend listening to, and enjoying country music.

The Festival is now quite a huge event it now is. Over the last 13 years it has become an event that is looked forward to by artists and public alike.

As we move to our 14th year the enthusiasm grows even larger.

Tony Stewart

The team consists of Tracy McAra and Tony Stewart, who spend the greater part of the festival managing the stage - both as back stage managers and MC's (amongst many other jobs).

Gail Norkett is the main person responsible for the registrations of singers.

Flo Amohia and her team are in charge of the food tent

Aubrey Ellen is in charge of the gate and camping area etc..

Alexia Whiley is in charge of the fund raising and is our Accountant.

Nikki Anglesey is the Chief Photographer for the Festival and in charge of Posters and the Facebook page.

Dot & Ivan will be looking after merchandise and CD Sales etc

There are many others, too numerous to mention, who are donating thier time and help to make this event a succes, without these people it would not be possible.
