Sharper Than Agency and Management

Chris Pentney
Sharper Than is run by Chris Pentney, former Head of Folkworks Programme at Sage Gateshead since 2002 and part of the Folkworks team since 1995, coordinating Folkworks’ national and regional tours.

Chris says, ‘With 21 years of event organising and venue and festival programming experience behind me, I will be working hard to provide the levels of service and great artists that I know programmers require.

I’m passionate about connecting artists, audiences and traditional music and all of the acts I work with feel the same way. We can always talk about adding in workshop opportunities or other ways of connecting with audiences – or potential audiences – to help grow interest and attendances.

I look forward to working with you!’
