Puppetry, live music and beautiful storytelling combine in this charming tale about love, loss and friendship. Bear likes peace and quiet. Other folk are bothering and Bear does not like to be bothered. One day, as Bear is sitting comfortably sipping his tea, deep in the branches of his tree he hears the munching and a crunching of a bright green Caterpillar. Bear and Caterpillar soon become the best of friends, Caterpillar munching happily through heroic tales of Bear’s younger life catching fish, raising cubs and being big, strong and fierce. But one day Caterpillar stops munching and looks sick. Bear fears he will lose his friend but, as if by magic, Caterpillar grows and stretches and from the leaves emerges a beautiful butterfly. Can Bear come to terms with this new version of his friend who flies high above the trees and has stories of his own? Puppetry, live music and beautiful storytelling combine in this charming tale about love, loss and friendship. &#8220;Coupled with high production values and meticulous direction from Dani Parr, this is a show which audience members young and old will thoroughly enjoy.&#8221; British Theatre Guide Family Ticket A family ticket is available for £24.

We are thrilled to announce that recent Rough Trade signings This Is The Kit will release their new album &#8216;Moonshine Freeze&#8217; on 7th July. The first 500 orders of the LP or CD from our Rough Trade Webstore will receive an exclusive This Is The Kit tea towel and 6 special postcards of Kate&#8217;s pinhole camera photography. The LP is pressed onto limited red vinyl. Watch the band performing &#8216;Moonshine Freeze&#8217;s stunning title track in a new Rough Trade Session (more tracks from that coming soon) here: This Is The Kit &#8211; the musical project which holds exceptional Paris-via-Bristol songwriter Kate Stables close to its heart &#8211; have earned the adoration of peers including Guy Garvey, The National and Sharon van Etten. Their new album and Rough Trade debut, &#8216;Moonshine Freeze&#8217;, is undoubtedly their most compelling and accomplished to date. Produced by John Parish (PJ Harvey, M Ward, Perfume Genius), it began in the immediate wake of its predecessor, &#8216;Bashed Out&#8217;, when days after coming off tour last November, Stables and her band (Rozi Plain, Jamie Whitby-Coles, Neil Smith and Jesse D Vernon) headed into Geoff Barrow&#8217;s Invada studios in Bristol. Aaron Dessner of The National also features on six of the album tracks. Though the album&#8217;s songs were already written before heading into the studio, Stables says she had no fierce vision for how they should sound, preferring to let them take shape with the input of her band and Parish. &#8220;I&#8217;m not yet someone who says &#8216;I want this album to sound like an 80&#8217;s French nightclub&#8217;,&#8221; she says. &#8220;All I can do is write the songs and then step back from them and see what themes or patterns there are, then bring those patterns out so it&#8217;s a coherent piece of work, sonically and in terms of feeling.&#8221; Sonically, Moonshine Freeze is a beguiling mixture of great musical sophistication and something more guileless &#8211; children&#8217;s games, incantations and snatches of nursery rhymes. Stables&#8217; voice too is a remarkable thing: in its angles there lies an exquisite strangeness reminiscent of Will Oldham, Magnolia Electric Co, Robert Wyatt, Karen Dalton.

See rising stars of the future as part of New Year New Artists, showcasing the UK&#8217;s most exciting contemporary musicians. Paul Thomas Saunders&#8217; new single, &#8220;I’ll Come Running&#8221; was described as a “stark, seismic song with weighty sentiments that rupture the fibres in your body” by Line of Best Fit. With fans such as The Staves, see the full band show, in his first performance at Sage Gateshead. Facebook | Twitter Fresh from a Summer Studios residency, Harri Endersby makes her Sage Two debut. Growing up in County Durham and its thriving folk scene, Harri Endersby’s music has been heavily influenced by the region’s crowd of prestigious folk singers and musicians, her lyrics being firmly rooted in the pastoral and the world of story-telling. She plays music from her new album, ‘Homes/Lives’. Facebook | Twitter They say it&#8217;s grim up North and one listen of breakthrough singer-songwriter Brooke Bentham&#8217;s opening salvo in 2017 might reinforce that sentiment. &#8220;It&#8217;s funny how small things can wreck away at your life, when you&#8217;re not doing anything but living inside,&#8221; she sings on the opening track of her debut EP &#8216;The Room Swayed&#8217;. The swells and plummets of the track &#8211; titled &#8216;Nowhere Near Sense&#8217; &#8211; possess the epic alt rock journeying of War On Drugs or Ryan Adams with the added emotional vocal depths of Sharon Van Etten or Angel Olsen. That all this is the fruits of a 21-year-old from South Shields outside of Newcastle might take you by surprise. It carries the weight of someone who&#8217;s lived a hundred lives already.

£14.50


In December 2012 Christine won a BASCA British Composers Award for her spellbinding settings of poems by WB Yeats, ‘Sailing to Byzantium’. The award included a PRSF commission to write new music. Tobin’s latest album PELT is the result of this commission. PELT is Christine’s settings of poems and lyrics by contemporary Pulitzer Prize winning poet, Paul Muldoon. Although a continuation of Tobin’s alchemy with fine words and music and her exploration of the chemistry between the two, PELT marks a new direction and a new musical soundscape. PELT is both daring and dreamlike, passionate and playful. BBC Music Magazine described it as “…feisty original music written by Tobin for a programme that covers the Americana waterfront. The album is a masterclass in songcraft.” Christine leads her virtuosic musicians across a kaleidoscopic panorama, sometimes as junkyard blues philosopher, or snappy beat seductress, sometimes as a conduit for exquisite zen-like harmonies, or reflective Americana. The result is a rich and engaging collection with Tobin’s trademark originality. The full instrumentation and line-up for live performances on this tour is: Christine Tobin voice and composer Richard Jones violin Kate Shortt cello &amp; backing vocals Gareth Lockrane flutes Phil Robson guitar Steve Hamiltonpiano, keyboard &amp; laptop Dave Whitford double basses Simon Lea drums. &#8220;There’s a patience and clarity to her handling of fine poetry, but there’s a tough, bluesy assertiveness to this album too. Tobin sounds almost as scornfully sardonic as 60s Dylan… Muldoon and Tobin make a powerful team.&#8221; The Guardian &#8220;Tobin’s 24 carat voice.

Comprised of: Tom Constanten, original Grateful Dead pianist, who played all the keyboards on the original &#8220;Live Dead&#8221; recording, inducted into The Rock &amp; Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and was essential to Grateful Dead&#8217;s first 2 ambitious/ experimental studio recordings &#8220;Anthem of The Sun&#8221; and &#8220;Aoxomoxoa.&#8221; Mark Karan, lead guitarist with Bob Weir&#8217;s Rat Dog and The Other Ones, Slick Aguilar who played lead guitar in Jefferson Starship &amp; KBC for 26 years and with David Crosby Band before that; UK drummer Richard Newman who just recorded Robert Plant&#8217;s new single, recently toured with Paul Rodgers, also played in Jefferson Starship, Rory Gallagher, Deb Bonham and many others; and, UK multi-instrumentalist Tony Morley, also of Jefferson Starship &#8211; round out the line-up. All are fan favorites, especially in the UK. Live Dead &#8217;69 shall perform the first 2 live Grateful Dead albums (&#8220;Live Dead recorded in 1969, and &#8220;Skull &amp; Roses&#8221; in 1971) in their entirety, with assorted other selections and truckload of improvisation. Their unique familiarity with Grateful Dead&#8217;s halcyon material implies an improvisational prowess that shall be on full display. ]]>

£16.40


Last autumn, acclaimed writer and broadcaster Stuart Maconie walked 300 miles from Jarrow to London retracing the famous Jarrow Crusade &#8211; a march in the autumn of 1936 by 200 men to protest mass unemployment and extreme poverty. The Crusade was born in a society facing a growing problem of inequality, injustice and the rise of fascist tendencies. Eighty years on, Stuart’s journey through a divided, post-Brexit, complex country, echoes 1936 in many ways. From choral evensong to curry house, from austerity to affluence, from Wearside to Westminster, Stuart’s brand new live show is a hugely entertaining, impassioned and enlightening reflection of his journey through Britain then and now. As a writer and journalist Stuart has written for Q Magazine, Elle, The Times, The Guardian amongst others and was an assistant editor for NME. @StuartMaconie ]]>

“Seal sets new Standards with album of timeless classics” Daily Telegraph “Seal’s rich, luxurious voice remains a reliable thing of wonder” London Evening Standard British soul legend Seal has announced UK tour dates for 2018 in support of his tenth studio album &#8220;Standards&#8221;. Backed by a big band, the multi-award winning star will be performing songs from the new album, alongside his classic hits &#8216;Killer&#8217; and &#8216;Kiss from a Rose&#8217;. In a career spanning three decades, racking up over 30 million records sales worldwide and a string of Grammy, Brit and Ivor Novello awards along the way, Seal continues to shine as one of the world’s brightest music stars. “Standards” brings the glamour of Old Hollywood straight to the present. It is a natural successor to his series of soul records, made a decade ago which sold over 5 million copies around the world. “Standards” hears Seal’s signature, velvety warm vocals bring to life classics made popular by Frank Sinatra (such as ‘Luck Be A Lady’, ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ and ‘It Was A Very Good Year’), Ella Fitzgerald (‘I’m Beginning to See The Light’) and Nina Simone (‘I Put A Spell on You’). Elsewhere, there are lush orchestral moments captured on ‘Smile’ (Charlie Chaplin) and the Cole Porter gem, ‘Love For Sale’. The sound of Seal’s new album is also shaped by three renowned collaborators: Grammy-nominated British producer Nick Patrick (who has worked with luminaries including Tina Turner and Marvin Gaye and enjoyed huge chart success with his pioneering Elvis orchestral albums), multi Grammy-nominated arranger Chris Walden, and legendary engineer Don Murray. Seal said: “It’s great being back in my home country, and touring with this album is going to be such an experience. We have a full big band – it’s going to be amazing.” Seal.com | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram ]]>

Leveret is a unique collaboration between three of England&#8217;s finest folk musicians. Andy Cutting, Sam Sweeney and Rob Harbron are each regarded as exceptional performers and masters of their instruments. Together their performances combine consummate musicianship, compelling delivery and captivating spontaneity. Leveret&#8217;s music is not arranged in the conventional sense and instead they rely on mutual trust, listening and responding. Their playing is relaxed and natural, drawing audiences in and inviting them to share in music making that is truly spontaneous and yet deeply timeless. Fiddler Sam Sweeney was the 2015 BBC Folk Awards Musician of the Year, directs the National Youth Folk Ensemble and is known for his work in Bellowhead, Eliza Carthy &amp; The Wayward Band, The Full English and his own Made In The Great War project. Melodeon genius Andy Cutting, a three-time BBC Folk Awards Best Musician, is a compelling solo performer and currently works with Blowzabella, Topette, June Tabor, and Roger Daltry. Concertina wizard Rob Harbron leads the English Acoustic Collective summer school and is known for his work with The Full English (Best Group and Best Album BBC Folk Awards 2014), Emma Reid, Fay Hield, Jon Boden and others. Leveret&#8217;s music is firmly rooted in the English tradition but sounds fresh and new. With their albums New Anything and In The Round and over a long string of sell-out gigs, the trio have built a strong reputation as consummate musicians and captivating performers. Now they return with Inventions, a new album of original material that brings Leveret&#8217;s trademark groove, energy and intuitive playing to bear on a set of new tunes composed by the trio, three of today&#8217;s finest tunesmiths in the folk field. National Youth Folk Ensemble The National Youth Folk Ensemble launched in October 2016, bringing together talented young folk musicians from across England to create and perform inspiring new arrangements of folk music. During the year, the 14-18 year old musicians participate in four intensive weeks of music-making in different parts of England, working with folk luminaries such as Sam Sweeney (Artistic Director), Rob Harbron, Miranda Rutter, Andy Cutting, Emma Reid, Sarah Hayes and Saul Rose. Expect modern arrangements of folk tunes from England and beyond, alongside new compositions drawing on traditional music, all created and performed by these rising stars.

Starting out as the bedroom project of Jazz pianist Scott Bradlee and rapidly growing into a viral and real-world sensation, the US group&#8217;s vintage-pop mash ups have racked up over 811 million YouTube views and brought their rotating roster of top-class session musicians into the limelight &amp; onto sold out worldwide tours. READ: Arguably the most inventive cover of the song, Postmodern Jukebox’s take features Kenton Chen as they take a mellow, but still very drama-filled, approach. Imagine marrying the 21st century party vibe of Miley Cyrus or the minimalist angst of Radiohead with the crackly warmth of a vintage 78 or the plunger-muted barrelhouse howl of a forgotten Kansas City jazzman. Bradlee’s choice of material ranges from the &#8217;80s hard rock of Guns N’ Roses to hits as recent as Taylor Swift&#8217;s controversial “Look What You Made Me Do.” They&#8217;re rendered by a rotating cast of musicians and singers in fashions that date back to a time when Axl, Slash and T-Swift’s parents had yet to be born &#8211; a time of street corner harmonies and torch singers, blues belters and golden-voiced crooners. &#8220;Surprises, an abundance of talent, fun, variety, glamour, laughter and its one great big ball of fun. This is a PMJ show and they love every second that they get to shine. PMJ are a wonderful collection of musicians and performers, who show what real talent is all about.&#8221; Entertainment Focus Each week you don’t know what musical surprise appear, which makes their YouTube channel one of the most exciting with nearly 3 million subscribers to date.

Nils Frahm had an early introduction to music, learning the piano throughout his childhood. It was through this that Nils began to immerse himself in the styles of classical pianists from previous generations as well as the music of contemporary composers, before forging his own musical path through composition. Today Nils Frahm continues to work as an accomplished composer, producer and celebrated performer from his Berlin-based studio at the renowned Funkhaus. His unconventional approach to an age-old instrument, played contemplatively and intimately, and on a mesmerising scale through his vast stage shows, has won him many fans around the world. Nils has gained global notoriety for his highly developed sense of control and restraint in his work, as well as a breath-taking level of emotion and personality. After spending much of 2017 in hibernation in preparation for a busy period ahead, Nils will commence 2018 with his first live performances since 2015, and will embark on the beginning of a long worldwide tour entitled All Melody. www.nilsfrahm.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

It is with huge regret that due to reasons associated with my speaking voice, I&#8217;ve decided to postpone my forthcoming Midlife Crisis tour until Spring 2018. Those that know me will know that this was not easy decision, nor a decision taken lightly. For the past ten years I&#8217;ve done hundreds of shows and have only ever cancelled a handful of dates. As you can imagine , when your speaking voice is strained, it’s difficult to embark on a 35 date tour that primarily revolves around me telling stories about my career and my life! I want to be on top form so as I can enjoy the experience and most importantly that you as an audience can share these memories without a sense that I&#8217;m compromising my performance therefore my personality. Postponing this tour was the absolute last option but necessary if I’m to explore all avenues associated with improving this condition, which strains my speaking voice but does not directly affect my singing voice. The good news is that it is treatable but requires time, time to work through various options that medical advice has suggested. I will continue to fulfil all scheduled singing dates. There is some more good news too. Due to popular demand, we have been able to add 11 more shows to our tour, so I really hope that means everyone who wants to can come and join me for what I think will be a fantastic evening that we are all going to love. ]]>

£27.30, £38.20, £43.60


Dark Matter is Randy Newman&#8217;s first studio album of all-new material since the 2008 release of his acclaimed Harps and Angels, an acerbic take on the state of America that Rolling Stone called &#8220;reason to wrap yourself in the flag and cheer.&#8221; The ensuing years have proven Newman to be more prognosticator than mere commentator-his &#8220;A Few Words in Defense of Our Country,&#8221; its lyrics printed on the Op-Ed page of the New York Times in January 2007, seems even more relevant today, though by no means reassuring. On Dark Matter, Newman jumps right back into the fray, opening the disc with the grand &#8216;The Great Debate&#8217; a nearly nine-minute opus that feels like the opening number of a zany musical, featuring scientists, religious zealots, and a gospel choir, arguing about the existence of evolution, dark matter, climate change, and religion. www.randynewman.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

<![CDATA[Moya Brennan]]> Sage Two 0.00000000 0.00000000 Moya will be performing both Clannad material and songs from her latest CD 'Canvas'.

£24.50, £21.80


When Bono stated recently, &#8220;I think she has one of the greatest voices the human ear has ever experienced&#8221;, he was heralding what many people know already about The Voice of Clannad, Moya Brennan. She sings like nothing you&#8217;ve ever heard before! So it makes sense that her live solo shows &#8211; with all the musicality and power of Clannad but with added, heart-warming intimacy &#8211; should be such a rich and moving experience. Her effortless vocals and timeless music pay homage not only to her vibrant traditional Irish heritage but also her grasp of contemporary forms. With Clannad she rose to prominence with a pioneering approach to traditional music which has garnered them 15 million record sales worldwide and a string of awards, including a Grammy in 1998. Their sound has since become the benchmark for the Celtic music genre. Sister Enya joined Clannad for a time before pursuing her own successful career. Moya&#8217;s solo career has continued that success with 8 albums to her credit and more in the pipeline. Her live show has developed into a visual (as well as sound) spectacle with rhythm, atmosphere and vibrant harmony. Besides her solo work Moya has been much in demand for a number of other projects and is both vociferous and active in her championing of Irish arts and culture abroad. Her career to date includes 25 albums, numerous film scores and she has sung with many great artists, including The Chieftains, Robert Plant, Paul Brady, Shane MacGowan and, of course, Bono. Her voice continues to be in demand in dance music and includes collaborations with Chicane (Saltwater), DJ Roger Shah and Schiller. In recent years she has been involved in two exciting collaborations; Firstly with three renowned Irish female singers as T with the Maggies (Moya, Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh (Altan) and Maighread &amp; Triona Ni Dhomhnaill (Skara Brae, Bothy Band, Coolfin) and also as Voices &amp; Harps with renowned Irish harpist, Cormac De Barra. &#8220;Ireland is changing rapidly but one thing that remains constant is our love of music and wanting the whole world to hear it. I love being part of that&#8221;, says Moya. moyabrennan.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£16.40


Police Dog Hogan release their new album &#8216;Wild By The Side Of The Road&#8217; on the Village Green label on Friday 17th February. The official launch gig will take place at Nell&#8217;s Jazz and Blues Club in West London on 22 February and will be followed by an extensive tour throughout February, March and April to promote the album. Driving country-rock rhythms and a distinctive Americana vibe underpin lead singer James Studholme&#8217;s lyrics, in this collection of stories and personal observations. The collective musical skills of the band have been used to full effect to create an album that delivers on both interpretation and atmosphere. Police Dog Hogan, first formed in 2009, has evolved over the years into a tight-knit eight-piece band combining guitar, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, accordion, trumpet, keyboards, bass and drums to create an exuberant fusing of country, pop, folk and rocking bluegrass. In 2014 Police Dog Hogan were one of only three UK bands invited to Nashville to perform at the prestigious Americana Music Association Awards, where DJ Bob Harris &#8211; in town for the awards &#8211; snapped them up for a recording that has become one of the most-watched YouTube videos on his &#8220;Under the Apple Tree Sessions&#8221; channel. In 2015 they made a showcase appearance on Harris&#8217;s Radio 2 show. The band has repeatedly been offered headline and other spots on the main stages of numerous key festivals &#8211; among many others, they have been asked back an unprecedented three times to Larmer Tree, twice to Kendal Calling and Port Eliot, and three times to Cornbury. In 2016 they appeared at Glastonbury for the first time, on the Avalon stage. The band regularly plays to sell-out audiences up and down the country. After more than 300 live shows they&#8217;ve become a serious and ambitious musical venture that marries a devotion to touring and the presentation of consummate live performances with an utter dedication to song writing and recording. policedoghogan.com | Twitter ]]>

Bound together by lifelong friendship and shared experience for more than 25 years, the Fisherman&#8217;s Friends have met on the Platt (harbour) in their native Port Isaac to raise money for charity, singing the traditional songs of the sea handed down to them by their forefathers. In 2010 they signed a major record deal and their album &#8216;Port Isaac&#8217;s Fisherman&#8217;s Friends&#8217; went Gold as they became the first traditional folk act to land a UK top ten album. Since then they&#8217;ve been the subject of an ITV documentary, released the hit albums &#8216;One and All&#8217; (2013) and &#8216;Proper Job&#8217; (2015) and played to hundreds of thousands of fans at home and abroad. Fisherman&#8217;s Friends sang for HM The Queen at her Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012 and were selected to sing for Prince Charles &amp; Camilla during their 2016 tour of Cornwall.

Other standout performances include the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, Beautiful Days, Sidmouth Folk Week, Looe Music Festival, Costa del Folk in Portugal and the BBC Proms in the Park.

Belle and Sebastian have revealed the video for their recently released single, ‘We Were Beautiful’. Directed by Blair Young from The Forest of Black and filmed throughout the band’s native Glasgow (where they also recorded and produced the track), the video presents a cinematic slice of life &#8212; and all of the pain, joy, confusion, and love that comes with it &#8212; as the city wakes up over a Saturday morning. Always attuned to human pathos and their community, Belle and Sebastian’s artful meditation on quotidian moments is a perfect visual companion to the new song, which The Sunday Times described as “a Pet Shop Boys-like curveball that explodes into a quintessential B&amp;S chorus”, and The Guardian called “an appealing curio” with “a pretty kick ass chorus”. Having recently wrapped up a North American tour that included Panorama and Osheaga Festivals, appearances at the legendary Hollywood Bowl and Merriweather Post Pavilion, and international headlines after leaving their drummer at a Walmart in North Dakota, the band today announces a run of headline UK and European tour dates kicking off in February 2018 in Belgium and arriving in UK cities at the beginning of March. www.belleandsebastian.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Glenn Tilbrooks solo shows have continued to rise in popularity with his 2016 tour selling out all but a couple of shows.

£17.40, £15.30


There are two ways of handling a dangerous, raging river: you can surrender and let it carry you away, or you can swim against the flow. For The Secret Sisters, there was a point after the release of their last record when they could have chosen to do neither – instead, sinking to the bottom as the weight of the world washed away their dreams. They went from touring with Bob Dylan to losing their label, purging their team, filing bankruptcy and almost permanently trading harmonies for housecleaning. But there&#8217;s a mythical pull to music that kept sisters Laura and Lydia Rogers moving forward, and they came out with a biting and beautiful third LP, produced by Brandi Carlile, You Don&#8217;t Own Me Anymore. Their first as New West signees, it&#8217;s a document of hardship and redemption, of pushing forward when it would be so much easier to drown in grief. And it&#8217;s a story about how passion and pure artistry can be the strongest sort of salvation – how art is left, like perfect grains of sand, when everything else has washed away. www.secretsistersband.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Alexander Hawkins is widely recognised as one of the UK’s most innovative and imaginative pianists, organists and composers. Along with his solo performances, he works in a vast array of creative contexts including leading and composing for his Quartet, Ensemble and his Nonet. Kaja Draksler is a Slovenian pianist and composer. After her studies in the Netherlands, Kaja decided to stay in Amsterdam, where she is an active member of the improvisers scene, performing extensively all over the Europe. As a composer she has been commissioned by various international groups, ranging from vocal and chamber ensembles to big bands and orchestras. Multiple award-winning pianist Bojan Z (for Zulfikarpasic) was born in former Yugoslavia in 1968. He harmoniously blends and twists his colourful musical baggage, from his thorough classical music schooling, Brazilian music and The Beatles, to Balkan folklore, blues and jazz. Bojan Z is not afraid to wander off the beaten tracks, yet never loses his taste for melody and song form. He is one of the most remarkably individual talents of European jazz. Jazz pianist Giovanni Guidi was born in Foligno in 1985. He is one of the most outstanding musicians to have emerged in Italian jazz in the last decade. Giovanni Guidi has been named ‘Best New Talent’ by a jury of 58 journalists and critics in the ‘Top Jazz’ poll, held annually by the Italian magazine ‘Musica Jazz.’ Part of Gateshead International Jazz Festival 2018 ]]>

Tin Men and the Telephone is an Amsterdam based band that employs live electronics, projected visuals, and audience participation in combination with jazz and improvised music to create a one of a kind multimedia experience. Pianist Tony Roe, bassist Pat Cleaver and drummer Bobby Petrov have developed a highly interactive show using their very own revolutionary smartphone app “Tinmendo” that allows audience members to actively take part in the performances in real time. Searching beyond their primary sources of inspiration such as the rich harmonies of classical music and modern jazz, or the visceral rhythms of hip hop and Balkan traditions, Tin Men look for the music in the sounds of everyday life, finding melodies in the cries of animals, rhythms in the patterns of human speech or structures in the bustle of traffic. Accompanied by projections and multimedia elements, the performance includes its audience in the audio-visual experience to co-create the concert. Don’t forget your smartphone!

Founded in 2012 the fabulous Jay Rayner Quartet romps through a repertoire of two halves. In keeping with his international renown as a restaurant critic, Jay tackles songs that deal with food and drink. Alongside that, in a series of brilliant anecdotes, he also reminisces about his childhood growing up with a mother who was a famous agony aunt and sex advice columnist, the late Claire Rayner. Jay is accompanied on bass by Robert Rickenberg, a formidably inventive player who rose to prominence with the Sheena Davis group and who has accompanied jazz greats such as Will Gaines and Mark Murphy. On sax is the highly-regarded Dave Lewis whose lyrical breaks power the groove in his own band, 1Up, and have seen him accompany the likes of Lamont Dozier and Bryan Ferry. But what completes the show is the vocal performance from the extraordinary Pat Gordon-Smith, who gets right inside every lyric. There’s a special chemistry between Pat and Jay too, which isn’t surprising. They’re married to each other. Join Jay and his quartet for an afternoon of food, agony, cracking stories and music that will nourish the soul.

Multiple award winner Norma Winstone was born in London and first attracted attention in the late sixties when she shared the bill at Ronnie Scott’s club with Roland Kirk. Known initially for evolving her own wordless approach to improvisation, her extraordinary versatility means she is equally at home with standards repertoire, as well as performing with small groups, orchestras and big bands. She continues in the forefront of British jazz and was nominated again in the 2007 and 2008 BBC Jazz Awards for best vocalist. She was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List in 2007. Ralph Towner is such an innovator on the modern musical landscape, his ideas ever fresh, though they span a career of more than forty years. Best known as the lead composer, guitarist, and keyboardist for the acoustic jazz ensemble ‘Oregon’, Towner has also had a rich and varied solo career that has seen fruitful and memorable musical collaboration with such great modern musicians as Gary Burton, John Abercrombie, Egberto Gismonti, Larry Coryell, Keith Jarrett, Jan Garbarek, and Gary Peacock. Ralph Towner came full circle with the 2017 release of &#8220;My Foolish Heart,&#8221; his 26th recording for ECM records, and an homage to the jazz pianist who inspired Towner on his original quest for compositional innovation, Bill Evans.

£19.60, £17.40


Ticket Details General Sale: Friday 24 November. 10am Online / 12noon Ticket Office Joan as Policewoman returns with a new album, Damned Devotion, and it&#8217;s her best yet. The first video to accompany the album is for Warning Bell (Track of the Day on Lauren Laverne&#8217;s 6Music show), a tender, bewitching song of regret Joan wrote about &#8220;being a romantic and the naiveté that goes along with it.&#8221; Directed by New York filmmaker/artist H Spencer Young, Joan wanted to capture the performance of the song without obscuring the power of the lyrics. Joan: &#8220;Words mean different things to different people and it&#8217;s important to me to allow the listener to have images of their own. That being said, the weather cooperated with us that night &#8211; rain and moisture in the air has always made me thoughtful. We wanted to capture the mystery of New York City while driving through Chinatown and parts of Brooklyn that hold deep meaning for me.&#8221; Already acknowledged as a thrilling live performer and starkly honest lyricist, new album Damned Devotion finds Joan Wasser at her rawest. While her 2014 album The Classic was a soulful celebration of life and her 2011 album The Deep Field a lush moody expansion, this new release sees her stripping her compositions back to the core, the bare-all lyricism and timeless melodies harking back to her accolade-winning album To Survive (2008) and the universally acclaimed debut album Real Life (2006). Joan: &#8220;My maxim is: if it feels scary to say it, it&#8217;s the thing you must say&#8221;. And on Damned Devotion the thoughtful lyricism is married to Joan&#8217;s most accessible music to date. Following the release of Damned Devotion, Joan as Policewoman will take her captivating live show on the road reaching the UK in April 2018. joanaspolicewoman.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£17.40


In more than a quarter century of touring Ian Siegal&#8217;s mission statement has barely changed: songs that are real, shows that resonate, vocals served raw. Today he is considered by many to be the most compelling British blues artiste since the great names of the sixties. In 2018 he will be touring a new album, his first studio recording of new songs in six years. Produced by American Jimbo Mathus, it is classic Siegal. Every song written or co-written by Siegal and full of the dark and light, clever word play and rough-hewn voicebox he is known for. It also marks the first studio recording with the band he hooked up with in 2013. Frequent touring has evolved a distinctive sound featuring Dusty Ciggaar&#8217;s tex-mex infused guitar licks. Classic Rock tags Siegal &#8216;a national treasure&#8217;, America&#8217;s blues bible says &#8216;vast talent&#8217; and MOJO magazine ranks him &#8216;the cleverest writer and most magnetic blues performer in the UK&#8217;. He has taken his music to more than 45 countries and presided over a trophy haul that includes 11 British Blues Awards, three European Blues Awards, two Mojo Blues Albums Of The Year not to mention three US Blues Music Awards nominations &#8211; an unprecedented nod for a non-American. And yet, for all the dizzying achievements in the rear-view mirror, the most important part of any Siegal chronology is always the next show, the next song and the next great record. www.iansiegal.com | Facebook ]]>

We are so excited to visit so many new places throughout Europe and I can&#8217;t wait to drop our new show on our WOTElings.&#8221; The Juno Award-winning band most recently released their single, &#8220;NOMAD,&#8221; a buoyant and provocative love song that once again delivers on the wide-ranging style the band&#8217;s audiences have grown accustomed to. This follows the releases of the highly successful singles Fire In My Soul (which has since been certified Gold) and Taekwondo (which was also released as an EP &amp; short film). Also, just in time for the holidays, the band released Holiday Beard Ballads, Vol. 1, which features band member Mike &#8220;Beard Guy&#8221; Taylor&#8217;s piano performances of holiday classics. Walk Off The Earth is an unconventional, multi-talented five-piece musical phenomenon that has taken the world by storm. Based in Burlington, Ontario, their brilliant five-people-playing-one-guitar interpretation of Gotye&#8217;s &#8220;Somebody That I Used To Know&#8221; exploded on YouTube garnering well over 35 million views in less than 2 weeks. Their YouTube channel has over 2.8 million subscribers, and their recent cover of &#8220;Shape of You&#8221; by Ed Sheeran has been viewed more than 11 million times. The band also has an immense social media following, with almost 3 million Facebook likes. Its hit, &#8220;Fire In My Soul&#8221; was certified gold in Canada and is one of a select collection of singles to be released worldwide through Universal Music Canada. www.walkofftheearth.com | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube Deluxe VIP Experience (+£150) Early entry into the venue Meet &amp; Greet and photo with Walk Off The Earth One Signed item One VIP laminate Question &amp; Answer segment Attend Walk Off The Earth&#8217;s sound check for a special performance of one song Deluxe VIP Experience does not include entrance to the show.

Second album American Pie &#8217;71 incl. irresistibly catchy title track, said to have been inspired by the death of Buddy Holly, but also a sentimental song about America that could be embraced by everybody as the USA reeled from Vietnam and Watergate: the 8.5 minute track as a two-sided single was no.1 for seven weeks and even pulled the first LP into the charts. &#8220;Vincent/Castles In The Air&#8221; from the same LP was a no. 12 hit and &#8220;Vincent&#8221; (no.1 in the UK) was being played daily in the entrance to the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam.

His award was presented by Garth Brooks who paid this tribute: &#8220;Don McLean his work, like the man himself is very deep and very compassionate. His pop anthem American Pie is a cultural phenomenon, and people are still trying to decode it after 35 years! He wrote other great songs like, And I Love You So, If We Try, Wonderful Baby, Winterwood, and my personal favorite Empty Chairs, which just kills me as a fan and a songwriter.&#8221; In 2014 Don performed for 30,000 at the Stagecoach Festival &#8211; one of the premier country music events in the US.

£19.60


A band of extraordinary chemistry and exquisite musicianship, &#8216;I’m With Her&#8217; features Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O’Donovan. Collectively, the multi-Grammy-Award-winners have released seven solo efforts, co-founded two seminal bands (Nickel Creek and Crooked Still), and contributed to critically acclaimed albums from a host of esteemed artists. But from its very first moments, their full-length debut See You Around reveals the commitment to creating a wholly unified band sound. With each track born from close songwriting collaboration, I’m With Her builds an ineffable magic from their finespun narratives and breathtaking harmonies. The result is an album both emotionally raw and intricate, revealing layers of meaning and insight within even the most starkly adorned track. Co-produced by Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Laura Marling, Paul McCartney) and the band and recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in a tiny English village near Bath, See You Around delivers a warmly textured yet stripped-down sound that proves both fresh and timeless. To achieve the album’s intimate feel, I’m With Her recorded live in the tight confines of the Wood Room, all three members performing in the same room without monitors or headphones. With its piercingly lyricism, See You Around also finds I’m With Her showing the uncompromising honesty of their songwriting. That intensity is heightened by the band’s effortless harmonizing, layered with lush guitar tones and crystalline harmonies, See You Around’s title track opens the album with a breakup ballad of rare nuance. www.imwithherband.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Ticket Details Sage Supporters Pre Sale: Thursday 12 October, 12 noon General Sale: Friday 13 October, 10am Online Please note you must have an account to buy tickets It is announced today that one of our most loved pop icons, Marti Pellow will tour the UK in 2018 with &#8220;The Private Collection Tour&#8221;. The tour celebrates 30 years in the industry, including number 1&#8217;s and hit singles from his many albums as both a solo artist and with Wet Wet Wet. How special is it that we have a singer songwriter that has a career that spans decades, oh and lets not forget he sang LOVE IS ALL AROUND, a little attempt at sarcasm creeping in there, which stayed at the top of the charts and gave him the longest stay at number 1 for a British artist &#8211; what a great accolade to have along with dozens of gold and platinum selling records from all over the world, which sit in a cupboard held open by his Brit award&#8230; Marti Pellow is not a singer songwriter that is about yesterday or today, he strives to be about tomorrow and that is why he has longevity in his career and continues to push himself; be it on a Broadway stage, writing a new musical, making new records, starring in the West End or touring &#8211; all of this ties together for him &#8211; and its all about the music. When asked about The Private Collection Tour, Marti said: &#8220;Playing live is about sharing a connection with your audience; be that with singing old songs, new songs, borrowed songs &#8211; I don&#8217;t care where the songs come from &#8211; its about having the best night out &#8211; pure n simple. I was just blown away by the amazing response from fans after we did our big concert tour earlier this year &#8211; and then exactly the same response after we did a couple of our Private Collection shows in a much more intimate setting &#8211; and I thought &#8211; if you all really loved those shows &#8211; then I want to come out and play these great songs and more for you. I want to hear my audience singing and laughing with me and walking away that night knowing me just that bit better.&#8221; After the success of his last Tour &#8211; Marti put together the new concert idea of The Private Collection show. He showcased it to sold-out evenings at The Stables in Wavendon and such was their success Marti decided to turn this show into a UK wide tour in 2018. The tour is not only the confirmed dates just released but also many more British Isles concerts and festivals yet to be announced. Marti said: &#8220;Here&#8217;s a show for those that just would love to hear an extraordinary evening of music &#8211; from the hits you love the most, with massive brass driven soul numbers to intimate acoustic ballads &#8211; and maybe a wee bit of chat along the way &#8211; we&#8217;ve got everything you love!&#8221; MartiPellowOfficial.co.uk | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Ticket Details Sage Supporters: From 12noon Thursday 30 November General Sale: Friday 1 December. 8am Online / 12noon Ticket Office The legendary Joanna Lumley will embark on her first ever live tour, &#8216;It&#8217;s All About Me&#8217;, in autumn 2018, where she will take audiences through her hilarious and interesting adventures from her incredible career spanning more than four decades, recounting some never heard before stories. She will also be joined on stage by friend and producer Clive Tulloh, who will put to Joanna questions from the audience that they&#8217;ve always wanted to ask, making the show a unique and hilarious night to remember. On announcing It&#8217;s All About Me, Joanna said: &#8220;The thought of this tour next year, travelling across the British Isles and Ireland, has completely taken over my waking hours. It&#8217;s utterly thrilling to start planning the stories I can tell, and the rapture (and gratitude, to be fair) with which I shall greet the audiences. Nothing like this has come my way before, and I may have to be dragged off with a hook at the end of each show. Oh people! This is especially for you from me, with masses of love. I think it will be fabulous.&#8221; Joanna Lumley icon, national treasure, activist, comedy actress and all-round top girl is barely off our TV screens and appears to have been a permanent fixture in our sitting rooms since she burst onto our screens as Purdey in the New Avengers in 1976. Now in a nationwide tour she will take us through the random journey that started in London in the swinging 60&#8217;s. Beginning as Jean Muir&#8217;s house model and muse, progressing to becoming a full-blown photographic model, featuring in knitting patterns, mini-skirts, toothpaste commercials and the occasional front cover. From there Joanna will share her stories of her acting career that includes Coronation Street, On the Buses, Dracula and as a brainwashed Bond Girl in Blofeld&#8217;s lair in On Her Majesty&#8217;s Secret Service. Joanna&#8217;s breakthrough role was as Purdey, a part for which over 800 girls auditioned. Purdey propelled her to instant fame and created one of the &#8220;must-have&#8221; hairstyles of the 1970s &#8211; the Purdey bob. She became a pin-up figure for a generation of British males who grew up watching her as the high-kicking action girl. Alongside iconic hairstyles Joanna started to develop a nice side line as adventurer and activist; popping up all over the globe she was often seen gasping at the Northern Lights, turning her bra into espadrilles and finding the source of the Nile. Then as Patsy Stone in Absolutely Fabulous she became a degenerate role-model for a generation. Winning two BAFTAs, Joanna emerged as one of the best comedy actresses of her generation. For 25 years the adventures of Patsy and Edina have sporadically lurched across our screens culminating in AbFab The Movie in 2016. This intimate night with Joanna tells some of these tales and more as we gallop through almost 50 years in this business we call show. ]]>

£42, £31.10


Ticket Details Sage Supporters: From 12noon Wednesday 6 December General Sale: Friday 8 December. 10am Online / 12noon Ticket Office This smash-hit show saw its world premiere in Melbourne in 2013 and since then has packed theatres throughout Australia and New Zealand. In 2016 the show returned to Melbourne for a sell-out season at The Arts Centre and July saw the show triumph for a third season at The Sydney Opera House. In the spring of 2017 At Last &#8211; The Etta James Story toured the UK, selling out theatres in London, Liverpool, Manchester and across the country, receiving 5 star reviews and multiple standing ovations wherever it played. Starring the sensational Vika Bull At Last tells the story of soul legend Etta James turbulent life and features some of her most beloved songs including Tell Mama, Something&#8217;s Got A Hold On Me, Sugar On The Floor, the heart rending I&#8217;d Rather Go Blind, her iconic signature song At Last and more. Vika puts her heart and soul into this unforgettable show and is joined on stage by some of Australia&#8217;s finest and funkiest musicians. During a long and tumultuous career that saw her win six Grammy Awards and a star on The Hollywood Walk Of Fame, Etta James has influenced a vast array of artists from Diana Ross, Janis Joplin, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones and Rod Stewart and is acknowledged as inspiring the careers of a new generation of singers from Christina Aguilera, Joss Stone, Adele and the late Amy Winehouse. Sadly, Etta&#8217;s frantic recording and touring schedule coincided with her ever-growing addiction problems and over time she not only sang the blues&#8230;she lived the blues. Mercifully, her passion for life and strength of character saw her conquer her demons and she continued to record and perform into her seventies. With respect, this is her story. atlastettajames.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>
