<![CDATA[Orchestre Poly-Rythmo]]> Sage Two 0.00000000 0.00000000

£15.80


The creator of a unique and fascinating sound, the Poly-Rythmo is one of Africa’s biggest orchestras, for whom the term polyrhythm is not used in vain. The author of hundreds of recordings, they are one of the continent’s most prolific and after five decades, they are also the oldest active African orchestra. The Orchestre used influences originating from traditional Beninese music, American soul and funk, Nigerian afrobeat, Congolese rumba, Ghanaian high-life, French pop and Afro-Cuban rhythms and combined them with lyrics that broach subjects such as the evolution of Beninese society and its ills, as well as the complexities of love. Despite strong competition from the other formations of the fertile Beninese music scene, the Poly-Rythmo rapidly rose to the top of the modern African orchestras. From 1969 to the mid-1980’s, the orchestra published hundreds of EPs and dozens of albums. Their new album was finished in June 2016 and opens a new chapter in the history of the Poly-Rythmo. These ten songs feature compositions by Vincent Ahehehinnou, and also by historic members Loko Pierre and Gustave Bentho. The band went back to the Satel Studio, one of the most legendary studios of the African continent to put down the record. It is where the history of the band was written, when the Poly-Rythmo invented afrobeat at the same time as Fela Kuti who they often played with in Lagos and Cotonou. An instant Afrobeat classic, Madjafalao (be careful) sets the tone of this generous record. The musicians of the Poly-Rythmo eloquently express the diversity of their talents. Remarkable percussion, striking brass formation and a glorious chorus underline the supple vocals of Vincent Ahehehinnou who embodies this richly passionate album. ]]>

£19.60


Record breakers, chart toppers and country crossover stars Ward Thomas are returning to Gateshead! 22 year old twins Catherine and Lizzy made history with their stunning major label debut when it reached the top spot in the U.K. Album charts, by becoming the first ever UK country act to achieve the feat. On top of that extraordinary achievement, the album stayed in the top five for three weeks: a rare accomplishment. Written in Nashville in 2014, Cartwheels, &#8220;the devastating title track&#8221; (Sunday Times , Culture), was the song that kick started the entire writing process for the album. Reflecting on experiences of young women (and men!) everywhere, it tells the sad tale of someone who refuses to accept that a relationship is over. The heartbreaking story is brought to life by the sister’s stripped back vocals and beguiling harmonies. www.wardthomasmusic.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£19.10

General Info: Please note change of date - now Tuesday 30 May.


That Thea Gilmore’s latest album is as ethereal as it is thought-provoking, as bewitching as it is bold, will come as no surprise to her army of admirers. Since releasing her debut as a teenager nearly 20 years ago, the Oxfordshire-raised, Cheshire-based singer and songwriter has gained global acclaim for making music not only of extraordinary beauty, but of rare honesty and insight. What will surprise fans is how The Counterweight sounds. Fifteen albums in, Thea has all but abandoned her trusty acoustic guitar in favour of an iPad and a piano. The change forced her out of her comfort zone in to exploring new methods of composing as well as new ways of recording. The iPad she had used only sparingly before. The piano, she claims, she can’t play. While, sonically, The Counterweight marks a fresh start, its outward-looking themes &#8211; the shifting political landscape, our absorption in technology, America’s gun culture and the search for hope in times of trouble included. On the day Johnny Gets A Gun was recorded, the MP Jo Cox was shot. The Counterweight’s stately, spine-tingling closer The War includes several direct references to the late Labour MP in a call-to-arms for change. Despite its hefty themes, The Counterweight is as catchy as it is current, delving in to disco and pure pop and boasting glorious strings, intriguing samples, shimmering soundscapes and pretty piano. Where it might have been mournful, it’s often airy and optimistic. Where it does delve in to darkness, it also glimpses light. For Thea, music still has the power to incite change. www.theagilmore.net | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

<![CDATA[Saint Etienne plus Kero Kero Bonito]]> Sage Two 0.00000000 0.00000000 Dance-pop band Saint Etienne are a quintessentially English proposition, part Lyons Corner House, part acid house, and their love of techno, the Beach Boys and classic English pop make them charmingly unique.

£25.60


Dance-pop band Saint Etienne are a quintessentially English proposition, part Lyons Corner House, part acid house, and their love of techno, the Beach Boys and classic English pop make them charmingly unique. Saint Etienne grew up in the Home Counties. Here are sixteen new songs they have written about a day in the life of this doughnut of shires that ring the capital, punctuated by bursts of BBC radio to remind you what time it is, and all connected by train journeys &#8211; main lines, branch lines, commutes, escapes. It begins with SOMETHING NEW, and a teenage girl creeping through the front door after staying out all night. It stops at WHYTELEAFE, and imagines what might have happened if David Bowie had remained David Jones of Bromley, stuck with a desk job. It summons up the Enfield Poltergeist on HEATHER, and the anarchy of Essex&#8217;s Plotland settlers on SWEET ARCADIA. TRAIN DRIVERS IN EYELINER wonders what the railway network might be like if it was organised according to ASLEF&#8217;s taste in music. The love/hate relationship people have with &#8216;home&#8217; is particularly acute in the Home Counties. Yet Saint Etienne understand that, if you squint, it could be almost utopian &#8211; here are the post-war new towns, much of the country&#8217;s modernist architecture, and the non-league football heroes of Sutton United, Leatherhead, Harlow Town. Three of the Beatles lived here. So did the Prodigy, the Zombies, Depeche Mode, Dr Feelgood and, naturally, Saint Etienne, small town groups looking to the capital but audibly inspired by municipal housing, box hedges and ring roads. The album was produced by Shawn Lee of Young Gun Silver Fox, with support from Augustus (Kero Kero Bonito), Carwyn Ellis (Colorama, Edwyn Collins), Robin Bennett (The Dreaming Spires), Richard X (Girls On Top / Black Melody) and long-time collaborator Gerard Johnson (Denim, Yes). It was recorded in central London. Sarah, Bob and Pete commuted to the studio every day for six weeks. www.saintetienne.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

After their worldwide hugely successful 3-D concert tours, the Electro pioneers Kraftwerk return to the UK in June 2017 for a special eleven-date run of their critically acclaimed live show. Bringing together music and performance art, Kraftwerk 3-D concerts are a true &#8220;Gesamtkunstwerk &#8211; a total work of art.&#8221; The multi-media project Kraftwerk was started in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider. They set up their electronic Kling Klang Studio in Düsseldorf, Germany, where they conceived and produced all Kraftwerk albums. By the mid 1970&#8217;s Kraftwerk had achieved international recognition for their revolutionary electronic sound scapes&#8217; and their musical experimentation with robotics and other technical innovations. With their visions of the future, Kraftwerk created the soundtrack for the digital age of the 21st century. Their compositions, using innovative techniques, synthetic voices and computerised rhythms, have had a major international influence across an entire range of music genres: from Electro to Hip Hop, from Techno to SynthPop. In their live performances, Kraftwerk &#8211; Ralf Hütter, Henning Schmitz, Fritz Hilpert, Falk Grieffenhagen &#8211; illustrate their belief in the respective contributions of both man and machine. Having received numerous of accolades over the years, Ralf Hütter and his former partner were honoured with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2014. Starting with the retrospective of their Catalogue at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2012, in recent years Kraftwerk have returned full circle back to their origins within the Düsseldorf art scene of the late Sixties. The 3-D concert series at MoMA was followed by further presentations at Tate Modern Turbine Hall (London), Akasaka Blitz (Tokyo) Opera House (Sydney), Walt Disney Concert Hall (Los Angeles), Fondation Louis Vuitton (Paris) and Neue National Galerie (Berlin). Having toured the US and Europe this year Kraftwerk will head to South America in November before bringing their immersive 3-D multimedia concert experience to the UK in June 2017. www.kraftwerk.com | Facebook | Twitter Ticket Details In an effort to ensure tickets are made available to fans at the correct price, measures have been put in place to stop the resale of tickets at inflated prices for this tour.

Rob Heron &amp; the Tea Pad Orchestra are one of the hardest working bands in the UK roots circuit. With thousands of touring miles under their belts, they have earned themselves a sizeable fan base in the UK, Europe and beyond. Rob Heron play their own unique brand of Western Swing, Blues, Gypsy Jazz and Country, or “North Eastern Swing” as they’ve coined it. Influenced by early 20th century American music, with the addition of “razor-sharp” solos, great arrangements and original songs; their music harks back to a golden age whilst staying perfectly modern. The songs are penned by Rob Heron, a crazy fool for country music and a full time dandy-cowboy. His songs are full of character, satire, and good old fashion hollerin’! Their debut album, ‘Money Isn’t Everything’, caused a sensation when it was released in 2012, winning a host of rave reviews – many of them 5-star. Their follow up album, “Talk About The Weather” in 2014 also received great radio play and reviews. Throughout 2015 and 2016 the band have continued to show their passion for touring and playing live with multiple SELL OUT shows across the UK and beyond. 2016 started with a bang with the band extensively touring across February to May – Including dates in England, Scotland, Ireland and Europe! Following this, Rob and the gang played some fantastic festival slots including Glastonbury (Avalon), Red Rooster, Shrewsbury Folk, Belladrum Tartan Heart – the list goes on and on. Through October Rob Heron &amp; The Tea Pad Orchestra are touring the UK once again to promote the release of their highly anticipated 3rd album “Something Blue”, which is already receiving fantastic reviews for which some are included below. Truly an incredible live act who’s songs will stick with you even weeks after! www.teapadorchestra.co.uk | Facebook ]]>

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 and the Songwriter&#8217;s Hall of Fame in 2007. Jackson&#8217;s career began in the mid-60s in Los Angeles and Orange County folk clubs. Except for a brief period in NYC in the late 1960s, he has always lived in Southern California. His debut album came out on David Geffen&#8217;s Asylum Records in 1972. Since then, he has released fourteen studio albums and four collections of live performances. His most recent studio album, Standing In The Breach, is a collection of ten songs, at turns deeply personal and political, exploring love, hope, and defiance in the face of the advancing uncertainties of modern life. Accompanying Jackson on the road this June are longtime bandmates Val McCallum (guitar), Mauricio Lewak (Drums), Jeff Young (keyboards), Bob Glaub (bass), Alethea Mills (Vocals) and the acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz (guitar, lap steel, pedal steel). “This is my ideal band, with some of my favorite players, whose combined gifts provide the musical foundation and emotional underpinnings of my new songs. The interplay between Val McCallum and Greg Leisz &#8211; the effortlessness of their chemistry is a gift really, that just dropped into my lap. I feel fortunate to have them out on the road for this tour.” says Jackson. www.jacksonbrowne.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£40.30, £32.70, £29.40


The Mavericks were founded more than 25 years ago by Malo and Deakin as a standout alternative band in a Miami rock scene dominated by hair metal and punk. Improbably, they were noticed by super-producer Tony Brown in Nashville, and when they got signed to innovative MCA Records, they upended expectations in country music. Their blend of Cuban grooves and Bakersfield-inspired twang netted them several CMA and ACM Awards plus a Grammy in 1995. They charted numerous singles and albums while earning accolades as one of the finest live bands in the business. There was some time off and re-jiggering of personnel, but they came back strong with 2013’s In Time and 2015&#8217;s Mono, albums that provided abundant material for a refreshed and unmatched stage show. &#8220;We&#8217;ve traveled a lot in the last four years. And we’ve come back from a hiatus of nine years to find a brand new purpose &#8211; not just to go out and play for tickets and do the oldies,” says Eddie Perez. “Not many bands get to come back from that long to have another moment like this. So I believe it to be quite special.” www.themavericksband.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Nonesuch Records releases Junun &#8211; an album from composer/musician Shye Ben Tzur, guitarist Jonny Greenwood, and The Rajasthan Express, a group of Indian musicians &#8211; on November 20. Recorded earlier this year in a makeshift studio inside the 15th-century Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur, India, the album was made with Radiohead&#8217;s producer Nigel Godrich, who worked with the ensemble to create this two LP/CD album. The album comprises Ben Tzur&#8217;s compositions, which feature devotional Sufi qawwal musicians who sing in Urdu as well as in his native Hebrew. The filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson, a friend and frequent collaborator of Greenwood, came along to document the recording sessions as well as daily life and the close camaraderie of artistic collaboration. Anderson&#8217;s resulting impressionistic film, also entitled Junun, debuted at the New York Film Festival on October 8 and began streaming exclusively on MUBI from October 9, where it will stream for 30 days. Junun also will be shown at the Rome Film Festival in mid-October. Shye Ben Tzur is an Israeli composer/producer/poet and performer who lives in India and Israel. He composes qawwalis, instrumental and devotional music, in Hebrew, Urdu, and Hindi. Widely known as the guitarist for Radiohead, Jonny Greenwood also is a highly respected composer. In addition to his soundtracks to Paul Thomas Anderson&#8217;s Inherent Vice, There Will Be Blood, and The Master, Nonesuch also released his score for Norwegian Wood and his collaboration with Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki. ]]>

£12 (Concessions Available)


Join Sierra Hull for an Intermediate/Advanced Fretted Strings workshop. Sierra Hull was a bluegrass thrush, a teen prodigy. Krauss called her to the Grand Ole Opry stage when Hull was 11-years-old. Two years later, she signed with Rounder Records, and soon became known as a remarkable mandolin player, a tone-true vocalist, and a recording artist of high order. She made two acclaimed albums. She played the White House, and Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center, and she became the first bluegrass musician to receive a Presidential Scholarship at the Berklee College of Music. &#8220;She plays the mandolin with a degree of refined elegance and freedom that few have achieved&#8221;, says Bela Fleck, the genre-leaping banjo master who produced Weighted Mind. &#8220;And now her vocals and songwriting have matured to the level of her virtuosity.&#8221; Alison Krauss, who has won more Grammy awards than any female artist in history, says of Hull, &#8220;I think she&#8217;s endless. I don’t see any boundaries. Talent like hers is so rare, and I don’t think it stops. It’s round.&#8221; This workshop is suitable for Intermediate/Advanced instrumentalists on any Fretted Strings instrument. ]]>

£24.50


The seventh solo record from Mercury-nominated and Worldwide FM Lifetime Achievement Award winner Carleen Anderson is her best and bravest yet. This is a deeply and poetic take on belonging and exile that pulses with ideas and life. Anderson&#8217;s CAGE STREET MEMORIAL ~ The Pilgrimage will be performed by Carleen on vocals, piano and vocal harmoniser, with accompaniment by an adventurous quartet led by Orphy Robinson on Vibraphone, Renell Shaw on Bass, Samy Bishai on Violin and Crispin Robinson on Percussion. Her highly original compositions jostle and blends stylings of jazz, soul, gospel, opera and chamber music delivered in Anderson&#8217;s unique voice that plays with space and draws the ear to listen. Her numerous accolades are a testament to this most recent album showcasing an artist at the height of her creative powers to perform an unforgettable LIVE experience. “You have to see Carleen Anderson at least three times in your life. I’d hang around all day just to listen to her sound check.” Amy Winehouse. Launched by the 2016 EFG London Jazz Festival, this soundtrack album is one-third of a multi-genre narrative that traces the life of Anderson’s paternal Grandparents who raised her from infancy and their impact on her son’s current life in Bristol. After being recruited by Virgin Records for a solo recording career, her first album in 1994, True Spirit, had three chart topping tracks, Mama Said, Let it Last and Nervous Breakdown. Her second album in 1998, Blessed Burden, co-produced with Paul Weller, also had several hits, one famously being a cover of Paul McCartney’s Maybe I’m Amazed.

For this very special evening, Mercury Rev will be joined on stage by Simon Raymonde and by Royal Northern Sinfonia for a magical and intimate orchestral performance of music from across their catalogue. The band&#8217;s eighth studio album &#8216;The Light In You&#8217; was released by Bella Union in the Autumn of 2015, and although the band&#8217;s ability to deliver majestic and intensely personal sweeps of sound has never faltered, it marked a return to critical prominence for a band who routinely adorned &#8216;best of&#8217; lists with previous landmarks like &#8216;See You On The Other Side&#8217;, &#8216;Deserter&#8217;s Songs&#8217; and &#8216;All Is Dream&#8217;. Around the same time as the album was released, the band were invited by the Incubate Festival in Tilburg Holland to perform with the Tilburg Conservatorium Orchestra. For these three exclusive UK dates, the band will be joined by Royal Northern Sinfonia, Orchestra of the Sage Gateshead. Royal Northern Sinfonia have previously toured and recorded with fellow Bella Union artists John Grant and Lanterns on the Lake.

Alistair Anderson &amp; Northlands. From the heart of Northumberland, Alistair Anderson&#8217;s exciting new line-up conjures the spirit of the landscape with music that is rooted in both the hills and the tradition. Alistair&#8217;s own tunes rub shoulders with those of the Northumbrian shepherds who inspired him, alongside old tunes passed through many generations. Carefully chosen songs bring a different dimension and the whole is underpinned by arrangements that make the music soar and add a contemporary feel. Alistair Anderson is internationally acclaimed as the master of the English Concertina, and is a fine player of the Northumbrian pipes and has a career that has spanned 5 decades. The first band he played in, The High Level Ranters, played a key role in the folk revival of the 1960s and were the first band to take Northumbrian music across many borders. Alistair&#8217;s commitment to carrying on the traditions and passing them on to new generations have been at the heart of his work and his latest band, Northlands, embodies this with three younger musicians who have all been influenced by Alistair as a fellow musician, teacher and mentor through Folkworks Youth Summer School or the Newcastle Folk Degree Course, both of which were founded by Alistair. Ian Stephenson, Guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, has built a reputation as one of the finest guitarists of his generation, playing in KAN, 422, Baltic Crossing and The Andy May Trio. His recent adoption of the Northumbrian pipes gives further depth to Northlands with pipe duets! He has created many of the arrangements that the band loves to play. Sophy Ball, a wonderfully dynamic fiddle player, has appeared on several of Alistair&#8217;s albums and performs with 422, The Bottle Bank Band and the Andy May Trio.

From the heart of Northumberland, Alistair Anderson&#8217;s exciting new line-up conjures the spirit of the landscape with music that is rooted in both the hills and the tradition. Alistair&#8217;s own tunes rub shoulders with those of the Northumbrian shepherds who inspired him, alongside old tunes passed through many generations. Carefully chosen songs bring a different dimension and the whole is underpinned by arrangements that make the music soar and add a contemporary feel. Alistair Anderson is internationally acclaimed as the master of the English Concertina, and is a fine player of the Northumbrian pipes and has a career that has spanned 5 decades. The first band he played in, The High Level Ranters, played a key role in the folk revival of the 1960s and were the first band to take Northumbrian music across many borders. Alistair&#8217;s commitment to carrying on the traditions and passing them on to new generations have been at the heart of his work and his latest band, Northlands, embodies this with three younger musicians who have all been influenced by Alistair as a fellow musician, teacher and mentor through Folkworks Youth Summer School or the Newcastle Folk Degree Course, both of which were founded by Alistair. Ian Stephenson, Guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, has built a reputation as one of the finest guitarists of his generation, playing in KAN, 422, Baltic Crossing and The Andy May Trio. His recent adoption of the Northumbrian pipes gives further depth to Northlands with pipe duets! He has created many of the arrangements that the band loves to play. Sophy Ball, a wonderfully dynamic fiddle player, has appeared on several of Alistair&#8217;s albums and performs with 422, The Bottle Bank Band and the Andy May Trio. Sarah Hayes, who grew up in Warkworth, Northumberland is a gifted singer and flute player &#8211; with an alternative career in the indie band Admiral Fallow, she also keeps her music rooted in tradition with her solo work and her new band Wildings. Folkestra With two successful albums and a growing national reputation, Sage Gateshead&#8217;s youth ensemble Folkestra have performed at numerous concerts and festivals across the country as well as residencies as far away as Chicago. Directed by renowned folk guitarist Ian Stephenson, the group were founded by Kathryn Tickell, and have worked with some of the finest folk tutors in the country. Folkestra will be performing a range of material put together this year with a strong focus on local material, many from C18 manuscripts and other sources. Venue: The Witham, Barnard Castle ]]>

£10, Family Ticket £30 (Concessions Available)

Prefix: Presented with GemArts Masala Festival and Sage Gateshead


Sacred Sounds tells some of the largely forgotten stories of British India’s role in the First World War. Over one million Indian combatants and non-combatants participated in this calamitous war. Of these just under 100,000 were Sikhs – an astonishingly high number – considering they represented a tiny percentage of India’s population. Inspired by an evocative photograph of Sikh soldiers performing Gurbani Kirtan or Shabads (Sikh sacred hymns) in a French barn, this live concert showcases the music that Sikh soldiers took with them to camp and battlefield. Interspersed by readings of letters between soldiers and their families, the concert showcases their stories through the diverse music of the time, Shabads, recruitment songs and folk songs &#8211; including a mother’s lament for a departing son. Featuring: Kirpal Singh Panesar, Keertan Kaur Rehal, Christella Litras, Ravneet Sehra, Prabhjot Singh Gill, Joe Williams, Vijay Venkat and Robert Green. Poetry and images by Imtiaz Dharker, animated by Jack Lockhart. Sacred Sounds is funded by the Arts Council Strategic Touring Programme Sacred Sounds: Sikh Music Traditions and the First World War is presented by Alchemy, SAA-uk, and the Network of Sikh Organisations, UK in partnership with Birmingham Town Hall; Cast, Doncaster; GemArts, Gateshead; Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha, Leeds; Gurdwara Singh Sabha, Bradford; Gurdwara Singh Sabha, Newcastle; Ilkley Literature Festival; Nishkam Civic Association, Birmingham; Royal Armouries, Leeds; Sage Gateshead.

The Spooky Men&#8217;s Chorale are the gift that keeps on giving&#8230;as thunderous as a herd of wildebeest, as sly as a wagonload of Spike Milligans and as sonorous as a cloister of monks. The manchoir emerged blinking-eyed from the Blue Mountains of NSW fifteen years ago and armed with no more than their impressively cavernous vocal chords, a nice line in deadpan, improbable facial hair and an ill-matched set of hats, have been gleefully wooing audiences throughout Australia, NZ and the UK ever since. Renowned for a combination of Visigothic bravado, absurdist humour and eye-moistening tenderness, the Spookies, in middle age, are more masters of their territory than ever before, with five critically-acclaimed albums under their belt. For their 2017 UK tour, they will revisit their much loved b(l)ack-catalogue, forays into immense Georgian anthems, tender arrangements of traditional and contemporary classics, their own uniquely entertaining songs and choreography. Their last UK tour saw a large number of sell-out concerts at major venues and a whole raft of ecstatic festival audience reactions. You must see them.

William Bell The original &#8216;soul man&#8217; co-wrote one of the most covered songs in blues/rock music history, Born Under a Bad Sign with Booker T. Jones. Bell&#8217;s style is all about phrasing and inflection, simmering tension and restraint and his quintessential voice and evocative performances still wow audiences. William Bell’s 1961 solo debut for Stax records, You Don’t Miss Your Water (Until Your Well Runs Dry) became one of the fledgling label&#8217;s first major hits and is now considered one of the finest examples of soul music. www.williambell.com | Facebook | Twitter &#8220;With every smoothly delivered lesson about satisfaction and pain, you sense how hard each one was to learn, and how finding the right words—the right tone of voice to make what you have to say mean anything &#8211; is much harder.&#8221; Pitchfork (Greil Marcus) William released his first full-length album, 1969’s definitive The Soul of a Bell which included the Top 20 single, Everybody Loves a Winner. Among Bell’s other hits at Stax were I Forgot to be Your Lover (later covered by Billy Idol), Private Number (a duet with Judy Clay that was a Top 10 hit in the UK), and the Christmastime favourite, Every Day Will Be Like a Holiday. William struck pay dirt again in 1977 with Tryin’ to Love Two on Mercury Records, which became a top ten pop hit and went to #1 on the R&amp;B charts. Since then, Bell has continued to enjoy a distinguished career as a singer, songwriter and producer. His songs have been recorded by such diverse stars as Linda Rondstadt, Rod Stewart and Etta James and his recordings have been sampled by an impressive list of hip-hop and R&amp;B artists including Kanye West, Ludacris, Jaheim and more.

Jim Lauderdale has covered plenty of bases in his three-decade career, including bluegrass, soul, R&amp;B and rock, but his 2016 album This Changes Everything marked a return to classic country, playing tribute to Texas’ legendary dancehall scene. He helped pave the way for the current Americana movement and has written songs and worked with some of the finest artists in traditional and modern music including George Strait, Elvis Costello, Buddy Miller, Lucinda Williams, John Oates, Solomon Burke, Lee Ann Womack, Mary Chapin Carpenter, the Dixie Chicks, Old Crow Medicine Show and many more. In 2010 Jim was honoured with the SESAC Inspiration Award, he recently received the prestigious American Eagle Award from the National Music Council and in September 2016 received the Wagonmaster Lifetime Achievement Award at the 15th Annual American Honours &amp; Awards. Sam Outlaw is one of Los Angeles’ only modern country artists to earn international acclaim. Outlaw&#8217;s second album Tenderheart elaborates on his SoCal Country sound, a sun-bleached Baja-influenced twang that deftly points to country’s neo-traditionalists and LA&#8217;s legendary singer-songwriters. Outlaw’s debut album Angeleno earned rave reviews and has just won Best International Album at the AMA-UK Awards.

Jesca Hoop Compellingly unique, hugely talented American singer-songwriter and guitarist, Jesca’s new album Memories Are Now wastes no time in making clear its confidence, confrontation and craftsmanship. With stunningly original songs – minimalist yet brimming with energy, emerging from a wealth of life experience, great emotional depth and years of honing the craft of singing. As riveting as it is reflective, the album produced by the gifted Blake Mills (Fiona Apple, Alabama Shakes) is a fresh debut of sorts for Hoop, more than a decade into her career, as it is the first of her solo records made outside of Tony Berg’s Zeitgeist Studios. www.jescahoop.com | Facebook | Twitter Worry Dolls This young exciting duo’s chemistry and love of harmony led them to starting a contemporary bluegrass band. Their sound blends Zoe Nicol’s Irish-influenced voice, ukulele and banjo with the fiery integrity of Rosie Jones’ vocals and rhythmic guitar. Their debut album was recorded in Nashville with producer Neilson Hubbard, a veteran of the music scene with an ear for successful collaborations and a strong focus on vocals.

General Info: Multi-buy offer not available online


A double bill of two of the finest female blues voices from both sides of the Atlantic. Jo Harman &#8211; Soul, gospel and powerful melodies. British born Harman found success with her debut album, Dirt on My Tongue. The album was supported with a touring schedule that saw her share the stage with Patti Smith, Joan Baez and Sinead O’Connor and racking up more than a half-dozen nominations from the British Blues Awards. She subsequently teamed up with co-writer Mike Davis to write new songs that took their cues from some of the classic artists including Carole King and Cat Stevens, narrowing her focus to the building blocks of ageless music, from powerful melodies to organic, natural-sounding arrangements. Her latest album, People We Become, recorded in Nashville and produced by Fred Mollin has a warm sound, full of upright piano, unaffected bursts of electric guitar and the soulful sweep of Harmon’s voice. www.joharman.com | Facebook | Twitter Lisa Mills &#8211; takes her audiences on a musical, and often humorous, emotional journey with charm and panache that is melodic, raw, unfettered and most importantly, searingly honest: expect blues, country, gospel and soul influences. By taking all these ingredients and adding the occasional dollop of jazz inflection, Mills serves up her own savoury-sweet mix that goes beyond the expected.

Taking a more minimal approach to their material than some, they have been described as ‘one of the most compelling musical partnerships on the scene’, their music being ‘a highly concentrated and intimate musical experience that penetrates to the very rawest essence of folk tradition’. “There&#8217;s an earthiness and grittiness and a reality about this that I find personally incredibly appealing, the simplicity of the music is absolutely stunning.” Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2 www.facebook.com/cathandphiltyler Tim Eriksen is acclaimed for transforming American traditions with his startling interpretations of old ballads, love songs, shape-note gospel and dance tunes from New England and Appalachia.

<![CDATA[Hackney Colliery Band]]> Sage Two 0.00000000 0.00000000

£18


Hackney Colliery Band have had a simply phenomenal few years. From playing a 45 minute set at the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics and sets at the MOBO, Brit and Mercury Awards to live sessions on BBC Two, BBC Radio 2, Jazz FM and worldwide airplay from many more, from collaborations with the likes of Amy Winehouse and Madness to headline shows at London’s Koko, and a tour schedule even taking in the Faroe Islands, these east London musicians haven’t stopped. &#8220;Reinventing the brass band format for the 21st century,&#8221; The Times Part of the great appeal lies in their set list, which is as diverse as the London borough that gave them their name. With influences as much from the world of contemporary rock and electronica as from jazz and global brass, they stand out in a music landscape increasingly populated by brass bands. A New Orleans-style line up of trumpets, trombones, saxes, sousaphone and two drummers, and a name which pays homage to the British brass heritage demonstrate that Hackney Colliery Band are rooted in tradition, yet sound thoroughly modern. &#8220;One of the greatest live bands we have in this country.&#8221; BBC Radio 2 Able to be both a powerful acoustic ensemble as they parade through the crowd at the end of their shows, they’re also up-to-the-minute contemporary when on stage, with carefully crafted washes of electronics and drum machines adding to the raw power of brass and drums. Delicate one minute, powerfully energetic the next and always concluding in a huge party, they have enormous appeal across the age and genre spectrum. This is evidenced by their diverse tour schedule, which goes from 1am club party sets, to sellout arts centre tours, to performances at Womad, Sziget, Wilderness, Cheltenham Jazz, Field Day, Blue Balls, Fusion, Glatt und Verkehrt, Mostly Jazz, Durham Brass, Larmer Tree, Boomtown Fair, Shambala and Love Supreme festivals (amongst many others). Combined with a relaxed stage presence and thoroughly British sense of humour (which frontman Steve Pretty has developed through his solo work with many high-profile UK comedians), their live show is able to have extraordinarily broad appeal without dumbing down, presenting sometimes challenging contemporary music to a general audience with admirable dexterity. In summer 2016, Hackney Colliery Band released their third album Sharpener which entered the jazz charts at number three (and cross-genre independent charts at number 14) and went on to enormous critical acclaim, with the Guardian heralding it as ‘clever, and enormous fun’ and the Sunday Times describing it as ‘an ingenious blend of showmanship and intelligence’. With sellout shows in 2016 including a two night residency at London’s legendary Wilton’s Music Hall, an 800-cap show at Village Underground for the London Jazz Festival and three nights at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, not to mention a brand new live album due out in May showing them at their raucous best, 2017 looks set to be HCB’s biggest year yet, both live and on record. www.hackneycollieryband.co.uk | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£14.70


Marking the 50th anniversary since the revolutionary Summer of Love, Glasgow&#8217;s psych rock cosmonauts Trembling Bells hook up with original trailblazers Mike Heron and Ed Askew for a magic carpet ride of musical adventure. Few bands could be said to embody the spirit of the 1960s more comprehensively than the Incredible String Band. On albums such as The Hangman&#8217;s Beautiful Daughter or Wee Tam and the Big Huge, with their epic perspectives, pantheistic lyrics and visionary synthesis of musical forms, ISB gave the hippy generation some of their most emblematic anthems. Ed Askew is a painter and singer-songwriter who resides in New York City. His acid-folk masterpiece Ask the Unicorn was re-released in autumn 2016. Ed has just toured Europe with his trio in September in support of this release and in anticipation of his forthcoming second studio album of new songs, featuring Josephine Foster, on Tin Angel Records. ]]>

Singer. Songwriter. Composer. Pianist. Author. Neil Sedaka’s impressive sixty year career ranges from being one of the first teen pop sensations of the 50’s, a successful songwriter for himself and other artists in the 60’s, a superstar in the 70’s, remaining a constant force in writing and performing presently. Neil catapulted to stardom after Connie Francis recorded Stupid Cupid and she then went on to sing the theme tune Neil and Howard had written for the 1960 MGM classic Where The Boys Are. Neil signed to RCA as a writer and performer of his own material and was soon having hits with Oh Carol!, The Diary, Stairway to Heaven, Calendar Girl, Little Devil, Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen, Next Door to An Angel, and Breaking Up is Hard to Do. During the British Invasion in America, Neil retreated to the UK where he found creative and commercial success with the hits Solitaire, Laughter in the Rain, and Love Will Keep Us Together. With these songs and the influence of Elton John, Neil would re-emerge and remain a global sensation. www.neilsedaka.com | Facebook ]]>

BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards &#8211; Horizon Award Winner 2016 With an intoxicating mix of youthful exuberance and instrumental virtuosity, Sam Kelly &amp; The Lost Boys breathe new life into traditional music, letting it rub shoulders with contemporary originals and even the occasional surprise rock cover. Chosen by Cambridge Folk Festival as the pick of the 2016 event, they have quickly become one of the most in-demand bands on the UK festival scene. Having already recorded and produced over 10 acclaimed records, had multiple live sessions and airplay on BBC Radio 2 and 3, and his music regularly featured on Sky Arts and Sky Sports, it’s hard to believe that 24-year-old Cornwall-based folk singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Sam Kelly has only been performing live for 4 years. With folk luminaries such as Kate Rusby, Seth Lakeman, and Cara Dillon waxing lyrical about Sam’s live set, it seemed fitting when he was awarded the prestigious Horizon Award for emerging artists at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2016 at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Expect to hear haunting harmonies, soaring tunes and melodies, charming anecdotes and instrumental performances of the highest calibre, all led by Sam’s unmistakable vocals. This is not a show to be missed. Joining Sam in the full band line up for 2017 are Ciaran Algar (fiddle, tenor guitar, bouzouki), Jamie Francis (banjo), Toby Shaer (flutes, pipes, whistles, fiddle, cittern), Graham Coe (cello), Archie Moss (melodeon) and Evan Carson (percussion). www.samkelly.org | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

General Info: Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult


Graham Gouldman formed what became Heart Full of Songs six years ago, purely for the pleasure of playing songs in their simplest form, acoustically. Backed by fellow 10cc band members and opening the show at 10cc concerts, Graham performed a selection of hits he wrote for other artistes. The format became so popular that it adopted a name and undertook its first stand-alone concert tour in April-May 2013, touring again the following year. 10cc’s success has been such that the first opportunity for Heart Full of Songs to tour again is this October. Much has happened for Graham since he last took the band, now a three-piece featuring Iain Hornal and Ciaran Jeremiah, on the road. His status as one of the world’s leading songwriters was acknowledged with his induction into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame – an arm of America’s National Academy of Music – at a special ceremony in New York. ]]>

Exposed to the music industry from an early age, Dweezil Zappa developed a strong affinity for playing the guitar and producing music. Able to learn directly from world-class guitarists such as Steve Vai and Eddie Van Halen, Dweezil quickly developed into a musical star in his own right, releasing his first single (produced by Eddie Van Halen) at the age of 12. Since 2006, Dweezil put his own original music on hold, assembled a virtuoso band of musicians and devoted himself to performing the music of Frank Zappa extensively at venues across the world, the only official act to do so since his father’s death in 1993. In 2009, they were awarded a GRAMMY Award for best rock instrumental performance for their version of Peaches en Regalia. They were nominated in the same category in 2010 for their performance of The Deathless Horsie. Witness Dweezil and his band bringing his father’s musical legacy to life on stage, fifty years since The Mothers Of Invention first toured the UK. www.dweezilzappa.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Fifteen years ago, Jolie Holland and Samantha Parton &#8211; two founders of the wildly popular group The Be Good Tanyas &#8211; first joined forces. Now they come together once again, with a worldwide touring schedule and new studio album coming in 2017. Their new project, as always, is a page from the big book of North Americana and outsider folk. Holland grew up in Texas, and by her teens was performing as a traveling musician. In the late &#8217;90s, she called San Francisco home before making her way to Canada where she co-founded the Tanyas with Vancouver singer-songwriter Samantha Parton. Parton had spent her post-high school years traveling with her guitar, and drawing strong musical inspiration from visits to the southern US; she spent time living in New Orleans, Holland&#8217;s ancestral home. After contributing to the Tanyas&#8217; acclaimed Blue Horse LP, Holland moved back to San Francisco while Parton continued to tour and record with the group until a serious car accident took her off the road in 2012. With this new creative incarnation, expect to hear newly written originals, fresh arrangements of The Be Good Tanyas material, and songs from their individual catalogs. ]]>

£17.40


North-East born indie singer-songwriter Nadine Shah returns to Sage Gateshead after a breakthrough 2015/16 which saw the rapid success of her album Fast Food, sell out shows, an appearance at Glastonbury in 2015, supporting Bryan Ferry at 2016&#8217;s Mouth of the Tyne Festival and becoming a darling of BBC 6 Music. For most of us, 2016 was a tumultuous and ugly year – one steeped in political chaos and an air of uncertainty. For Nadine Shah, these headlines had been a big part of her life for years, and Holiday Destination – her brilliant and compelling third album out on 1965 Records – sees her stepping out of the shadow of the complicated relationships she examined on her second album Fast Food and taking account of the world at large. “So on this one trip to the States,&#8221; Shah recalls, &#8220;I&#8217;m taken to the other side of the airport in this room where everyone in the room has brown skin &#8211; and they&#8217;re all looking at me like &#8216;what are you doing here?!’ I just made this joke, I just said &#8211; &#8216;oh, I&#8217;m Pakistani.&#8217; And then everyone started to laugh. But it&#8217;s just like &#8211; that&#8217;s totally about a rise in nationalism that I&#8217;m seeing. It&#8217;s completely terrifying. Even on Twitter I&#8217;ve had people telling me &#8216;oh, go back to where you&#8217;ve come from&#8217; &#8211; and I&#8217;m like what? South Shields? It’s a proper identity crisis for me. I&#8217;m a second-generation immigrant &#8211; I was born in England, I&#8217;m very English &#8211; proper English, mate!&#8221; she jokes, before adding &#8220;but I&#8217;m also culturally Muslim.&#8221; Whereas some artists may stumble in putting their agenda across, Nadine Shah does not falter – whether it’s the confidence exuded in the one-two punch of ‘2016’ and ‘Out the Way’, or the emotional and heartfelt vocal turns on ‘Mother Fighter’ and ‘Jolly Sailor’, this is Nadine using her exceptional voice to put her inner workings in perspective and the world’s problems on trial in one of 2017’s most crucial albums.

£50.70, £38.20, £24.50


The Musical Box, internationally acclaimed for its historical re-enactment of early Genesis&#8217; works, is coming to the UK to perform The Black Show a re-imagining of their performance of Selling England By The Pound, featuring classic songs from all of the early albums. The emblematic 1974 show, originally only ever seen in America, allowed Genesis and Peter Gabriel to attain rockstar status, enjoying to this day a cult following from nostalgic and young music lovers alike. With Peter Gabriel&#8217;s famous theatrics and Genesis&#8217; unique musicianship, the band&#8217;s artistry would produce some of the most iconic images and sounds of the progressive rock era, such as the mythic, 23 minutes long Supper&#8217;s Ready, considered to be one of the most intense live music experiences ever created. Exclusively licensed by Peter Gabriel and Genesis, The Musical Box has performed for more than a million spectators worldwide in some of the most prestigious venues such as the London Royal Albert Hall, and had the privilege of receiving Phil Collins and Steve Hackett from Genesis as performing guests. With its quest for authenticity, The Musical Box is often cited as the best interpretation group in the world, proving the relevance of performing contemporary classics. Take a little trip back in time&#8230; &#8220;The Musical Box recreated, very accurately I must say, what Genesis was doing. I saw them in Bristol with my children so they could see what their father did back then.&#8221; Peter Gabriel &#8220;I cannot imagine that you could have a better tribute for any act. They not only manage to sound, but look virtualy identical. It seems as though nothing is too difficult for them.&#8221; Steve Hackett &#8220;It was better than the real thing actually. It was great, that was fantastic.&#8221; Mike Rutherford &#8220;The guy who does Peter Gabriel is brilliant.&#8221; Tony Banks &#8220;They&#8217;re not a tribute band, they have taken a period and are faithfully reproducing it in the same way that someone would do a theatrical production.&#8221; Phil Collins ]]>

£27.30 in advance


After 22 years toiling in the successful pop-rock outfit Del Amitri, Justin Currie made the rash decision to go it alone in 2003, spending the next four years messing about writing, drinking and doing any weird non-rock gig he was invited to participate in; jazz shows, folk shows and soul shows added more saggy strings to his collection of bows. In 2008 he finally pulled his finger out and pushed the button on a solo career with the release of his masterpiece of maudlin, What Is Love For. The question mark was missing, perhaps denoting an answer reached: &#8220;the future is miserable and I shall sing it&#8221;. His fourth album of this series, This Is My Kingdom Now is released this spring and follows on from The Great War (2010) and Lower Reaches (2013). The pop sensibility of Del Amitri&#8217;s sprightly hits was largely missing from this solo oeuvre, replaced by a tone Currie himself describes as &#8220;suicide in a saucy shirt&#8221;. Over time audiences have begun to divine hit-type hooks buried within the gloom and now flock to hear epics such as No, Surrender, If I Ever Loved You? and Falsetto with an alacrity some find surprising in an age where distraction from modernity&#8217;s inferno is a kind of medical emergency. Currie lives and breathes in Glasgow, collects beer mats and makes his own cushions. justincurrie.com | Facebook ]]>

Suffix: A Jazz North East presentation


Ex-pat Romanian pianist Lucian Ban first came to Sage Gateshead way back in November 2011, leading an all-star New York octet in a jazz re-imagining of the works of violinist and composer George Enescu. Not only was the project a huge success, but it forged a close link between Lucian and the revolutionary viola player Mat Maneri, whose marriage of jazz and microtonal music &#8220;has changed how the jazz world listens to the violin and viola&#8221;. Since then the pair have toured worldwide as a duo (including two memorable performances in Newcastle), and issued an acclaimed album Transylvanian Concert on the prestigious ECM label. On one of their visits to the UK they seized an opportunity to play with the great Evan Parker, a man who for nearly five decades has been re-writing the rules for how the saxophone can sound, and it was immediately apparent that here was a meeting of musical minds. In late 2016 they went into the studio to record a series of compositions and improvisations; the trio come to Sage Gateshead as part of a European tour launching the resulting album, Sounding Tears. Between them Mat, Lucian and Evan have performed with just about every significant figure in improvised music, and that experience, empathy and shared history is evident in every note that they play. This is music that is deeply intimate yet, in Mat Maneri&#8217;s words, &#8220;sets in motion the whole world&#8221;. ]]>

Ute walks through the backstreets of Paris, Berlin, New York and Buenos Aires and lets ancient ghosts with new faces tell the stories of the lost, of love, survival, passion, dreams, societies, the past and the future. Ute also performs her own songs to connect the yesterday with the today through her own stories about these places and about life. &#8220;She takes her place centre stage, and owns it&#8221; &#8211; The Guardian www.utelemper.com | Facebook ]]>

Gold Circle £42, £36.50

General Info: Now on sale to Sage Supporters


Few bands have changed as much as The Waterboys. Formed in 1983, on their first three albums Mike Scott sculpted a layered post-punk sound, culminating in 1985’s sky-scraping This is the Sea. Since then the music has never ceased to evolve, from the influential mix of Celtic, gospel, country and rock on the classic Fisherman’s Blues, to the fired-up poetic passion of 2011&#8217;s An Appointment with Mr Yeats and 2015&#8217;s acclaimed return to prominence, the rootsy, funky Modern Blues. The 2016 live version of the band is the same as that who recorded Modern Blues and successfully toured the world last year: Mike Scott on vocals, guitar and piano, Steve Wickham on electric fiddle, great Memphis keyboard player and showman Brother Paul, ace drummer Ralph Salmins, legendary Muscle Shoals bass man David Hood and sharp Austin guitarist Zach Ernst. Their sound bridges the toughness of British/Irish rock and the soulful, funky swagger of the American south. The relevance and popular reach of The Waterboys has never been greater. Their songs have recently been performed by artists as varied as Ellie Goulding, who scored a top 3 UK hit with How Long Will I Love You in 2013; mainstream poppers Boyzone who recorded The Whole Of The Moon in 2014; US indie rockers The War On Drugs, who&#8217;ve played A Pagan Place as a staple of their live set for several years; cool new American band Dawes who have rearranged Fisherman&#8217;s Blues to astonishing effect in their 2015 shows. www.mikescottwaterboys.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

<![CDATA[The Blues Band]]> Sage Two 0.00000000 0.00000000

£25.60


What does a great, lively musical tradition demand? Discipline, devotion, passion and love. Whether it’s Beethoven or B. B. King, Howlin’ Wolf or Handel, it all sounds better with a huge helping of skill, virtuosity and feeling. So when it comes to the Blues, aficionados of the genre can relax, because with The Blues Band, their music’s in good hands. Formed in 1979 by five seasoned musicians, The Blues Band are celebrating 38 glorious years as Britain and Europe’s leading exponents of one of the greatest musical traditions of all time. It began back then with a phone call by Paul Jones, actor, singer, musician and radio presenter, no stranger to the pop charts throughout the 1960s as front man for the hugely successful Manfred Mann. His fellow Manfred Tom McGuinness shared the same love of the music &#8211; he’d started out with Eric Clapton in the Roosters. And they knew the right people to make their idea for a band ‘just to play the blues’ work; they brought in legendary slide guitar man and singer Dave Kelly, who brought along a talented fellow musician, bassist Gary Fletcher. With the addition of Tom’s chart-topping partner from McGuinness Flint, drummer Hughie Flint, (ex-John Mayall’s Blues Breakers), that first line-up stormed the post-punk music scene, and contrary to their expectations, they soon left the pub scene behind for an international career playing the music they loved. After two and a half years, Hughie Flint left due to the pressures of touring. His place was admirably filled by another fine drummer, Rob Townsend, a member of one of Britain’s most eclectic, legendary outfits, Family. The rest, as the saying goes, is history. But what history. TV, films, a stadium tour with Dire Straits, over 20 albums, within a few years the Blues Band’s deep, well-tended roots had brought them the status of lasting legends. From Greece to Finland, Poland to Portugal, Italy to Denmark, when the Blues Band arrive, the fans turn out in their thousands. What’s on offer is always the same; a stunning menu of original compositions and blues classics, all delivered with passion, knowledge, love of the genre and entertaining showmanship. Other blues groups come and go, but it takes something special to achieve the iconic prestige enjoyed by The Blues Band. If you want to know what 38 years of skill and devotion sound like, here’s your chance &#8211; if you love the blues, it doesn’t get any better than The Blues Band. ]]>

Other finds Alison at the top of her game &#8211; making exactly the adventurous electronic pop music she wants to at this moment in time, with her voice and songwriting both intense, poetic and thought provoking. Other was catalysed by Alison’s fruitful dalliance with producer and song writing collaborator Guy Sigsworth, who (as well as having worked with Björk, Goldie and Madonna), co-created her last album The minutes, which debuted at number 5 in the national charts and won critical acclaim. &#8220;For me, making a record at this age, lyrically, is a different proposition. Observation in most cases replaces emotion. The invisibility of middle-aged woman rather thrills me and instead I watch&#8220;, explains Moyet. &#8220;Subject matter covers what you might expect from a pop album.

Following an incredible 12 months including a critically acclaimed new album and nationwide sell out shows, ABC&#8217;s new UK tour will see them joined by non-other than Kid Creole and The Coconuts. Of the new tour Martin Fry said: &#8220;Here&#8217;s an opportunity to open up the ABC songbook and journey through all the hits. Lexicon to Lexicon. ABC to XYZ. See you there. &#8220; ABC were formed in Sheffield in the 1980&#8217;s when they decided they wanted to fuse the world of disco funk with their own unique post punk vision. ABC&#8217;s debut album The Lexicon Of Love (&#8216;82) went to No 1 and sold over a million records. To date ABC have released 8 studio albums: The Lexicon Of Love (&#8216;82), Beauty Stab (&#8216;83), How To Be A Zillionaire (&#8216;85), Alphabet City (&#8216;87), Up (&#8216;89), Abracadabra (&#8216;91), Skyscraping (&#8216;97) and Traffic (&#8216;08). A mere 34 years since the release of their landmark debut album ABC returned with their resounding triumph The Lexicon Of Love II which immediately entered into the top 5. Kid Creole And The Coconuts were born out of the burning embers of the brilliant and trailblazing Dr Buzzard&#8217;s Original Savannah Band. Born in the Bronx (New York), August Darnell (the Kid) is a man of multiple cultures, inclinations and personalities. His love of the big band tradition is evident. Their live shows have become the stuff of legend. Annie I&#8217;m not your Daddy, Stool Pigeon, I&#8217;m a Wonderful thing, Baby and many more memorable tunes are guaranteed to make you shake your body. On joining the tour Kid Creole said: &#8220;When I listen to the music of ABC, I am reminded of good times and delicious poison arrows. It is an honor to share the stage with Martin Fry.

£21.80


Colin Blunstone was born in Hatfield, Hertfordshire on the 24th June 1945. He went to school in St Albans where he was introduced to the other members of The Zombies. After attracting a large local following, the band were offered a recording contract by Decca Records which resulted in their first single, ‘She’s Not There’ becoming a world-wide hit. Three years on the road culminated in The Zombies final album the acclaimed ‘Odessey and Oracle’. After a short break, Colin’s solo career began in earnest with ‘One Year’ on Epic Records, from which the hit single ‘Say You Don’t’ Mind’ was taken. Two more albums on Epic followed, ‘Ennismore’ and ‘Journey’ which spawned the hits, ‘I Don’t Believe In Miracles’ and ‘How Can We Dare To Be Wrong’. This was followed by a spell living in California where he signed for Elton John’s label, Rocket Records and released three critically acclaimed albums, ‘Planes’, ‘Never Even thought’ and ‘Late Nights in Soho’. Returning to the UK, Colin supplied the vocals for Dave Stewart’s hit version of ‘What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted’ followed by further hits with Smokey Robinson’s ‘Tracks Of My Tears’ and The Alan Parson’s Project’s ‘Old And Wise’. These tracks were followed by three further albums, ‘Greatest Hits’, ‘Echo Bridge’ and ‘The Light Inside’, before Colin decided the time was right to play live again where he was joined by fellow Zombies founder member, Rod Argent. Together they have recorded three studio albums, ‘Out Of The Shadows’ and ‘As Far As I Can See’, a live double album and DVD, ‘Live At The Bloomsbury Theatre’ and a live album and DVD, ‘Odessey And Oracle {Revisited} 40th Anniversary’, of their sold-out concerts at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire in 2008. ‘The Ghost of You and Me’, was his first solo album in ten years, Colin wrote five new songs for it and renewed his partnership with producer Jon Sweet and arranger Chris Gunning. In February 2009, Colin Blunstone toured the UK with his own band bringing ‘The Ghost Of You And Me’ album to a live audience around the record’s release. In 2011, as lead singer with The Zombies, Colin recorded a new album called “Breathe Out, Breathe In”, the first Zombies studio album in 9 years. It got fantastic reviews in the UK and the US and the band toured extensively in both territories to promote it. Plus dates in Holland, Belgium, France, Canada, Israel and Greece. 2012 saw a new Colin Blunstone solo album release called ‘On The Air Tonight’ which again he toured to promote in the UK. The following years were spent mostly in the USA playing live and undertaking a crowd-funding campaign on Pledge Music before returning to the studio to record a new album released under license to Cherry Red label in the UK and Europe. The Zombies featuring Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent continue to tour in Japan, USA, The Philippines, Spain, France and Great Britain. Colin and his solo band took to the road again touring the UK in January 2016 and Holland in February, and in the UK again in April and October. There is even talk of a new album in 2017 with further live dates in Holland and the UK! www.colinblunstone.co.uk | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

<![CDATA[Folkworks: Jon Boden & The Remnant Kings]]> Sage Two 0.00000000 0.00000000 The Remnant Kings was begun as Jon Boden's project away from his high profile work with Bellowhead.

£21.80


The Remnant Kings was begun as Jon Boden&#8217;s project away from his high profile work with Bellowhead. But that&#8217;s not to say they are an afterthought. Where Bellowhead had been a logical collective extension of what the Spiers &amp; Boden duo were doing, The Remnant Kings were the essence of Jon Boden. After a hiatus of nearly five years due to Bellowhead commitments, Jon Boden &amp; The Remnant Kings return to touring in November 2017. Drawing principally on his 2009 Songs From The Floodplain album but with a new album scheduled to be recorded in 2017, the Remnant Kings feature Bellowhead&#8217;s Sam Sweeney and Paul Sartin, and also the talented Rob Harbron with the line-up extending to up to eight members for selected shows. Much of Jon&#8217;s RK&#8217;s work is inspired by post-apocalyptic literature, something represented at live gigs by the on-stage use of wax cylinders providing a distinctive counter to normal amplification. And as Jon explained in his BBC Radio 3 essay, the prospect of a post-industrial world without gas or oil sits in harmony with the relevance of folk music and social singing. Frequently Remnant Kings gigs are followed with another, unscripted show in a local pub or room where the band and friends sing unaccompanied. www.jonboden.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£24.50


In 2016, Martin Stephenson and the Daintees toured the UK to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the release of Boat To Bolivia, selling out Sage Two and other venues such as The Lowry and The 100 Club. A few days later he was in front of about 100 in a small theatre in Sheffield. These days, wherever it is, the love and respect flows to and from the stage. For him, it&#8217;s not a career, it&#8217;s a lifetime calling, and his restless troubadour spirit has now amassed an extraordinary catalogue of 40 albums. Before he was anything else, Durham native Stephenson was a busker fueled by heroes Peter Green and Eddie Cochran and brought up on Frank Zappa, Santana and Patti Smith. It was the beginning of an instinct, a need, for live performance that continues to this day. The Daintees&#8217; first single, Roll On Summertime, appeared in 1984, and soon the big boys were taking notice. Kitchenware Records, based in Newcastle, had already become one of the most important indies of the decade with a roster that included Prefab Sprout, Hurrah! and the Kane Gang. Stephenson&#8217;s richly detailed and nuanced songwriting was the perfect fit, and the distribution deal via London Records gave the band a real platform. Boat To Bolivia displayed an extraordinary maturity, from the country charm of Candle In The Middle to the Cohenesque acoustics of Rain, and sounds as fresh today as it did then. A degree of UK chart success followed with the top 40 albums Gladsome, Humour &amp; Blue in 1988 and Salutation Road in 1990. When they lost their deal after 1992&#8217;s less successful The Boy&#8217;s Heart, Stephenson called time on the original Daintees, setting about a solo career and the prolific outpouring of quality material that shows no sign of slowing down. Right now, he&#8217;ll tell you, he could record fully five more albums from his current crop of songs. www.daintees.co.uk | Facebook | Twitter ]]>
