Each session lasts approx. 90 minutes. Relaxed Performance A relaxed performance is available on Thursday 17 August at 3.30pm. Relaxed Performances&#8217; are specifically designed to welcome people with an Autistic Spectrum Condition, learning disability or sensory and communication disorders into performance spaces to give those who otherwise might feel excluded the chance to experience live music / performances. They have a less formal, more supportive atmosphere in order to reduce anxiety levels. It is a specialist provision created to provide an opportunity for people who would otherwise find it difficult to attend – for example people who make involuntary noise, or are likely to need to talk a lot, or move around. During a regular performance this can disturb the other audience members, and the show, but at a relaxed performance it’s fine. Lighting and special effects will be slightly altered &#8211; for example removing strobes and flashing lights and reducing very loud noises, however the content of the show will not be specifically changed. The performance spaces may possibly be quite noisy, with people coming in and out – our customer experience team are there to support and manage this behaviour, rather than stop it. Please call Ticket Office on 0191 443 4661 to book tickets for the relaxed performance. #BeatTheSilencer ]]>

General Info: Age Restrictions Apply: 14+


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 ]]>

Less tribute and more homage, Nearly Dan is the holy grail to the ever-growing legions of Dan fans, desperate to hear the meticulously crafted grooves and allusive lyrical style of Donald Fagen &amp; Walter Becker. Nearly Dan&#8217;s approach is faithful though not reverential, relaxed but as tight as their namesakes: bringing their own unique spirit and spontaneous humour to every performance. Nearly Dan (now in its 20th year on the road) promise all the Steely Dan favourites in a two hour-plus show, featuring tracks from the red velvet groove of Countdown to Ecstasy to the sultry suave that is The Royal Scam. Over 40 years have passed since the release of the first album, Can&#8217;t Buy a Thrill, and what better way to revel in nostalgia than experiencing Nearly Dan live.

&#8220;There have been many pioneers in the black British community &#8211; people who have defined an era, changed societal perceptions and made it easier for those who follow to progress in their field. Courtney Pine is such a trailblazer.&#8221; The Voice Multi instrumentalist Courtney Pine CBE is a British born Jazz Giant. In the 80&#8217;s he was one of the first black British jazz artists to make a serious mark on the jazz scene when his first album charted the top 40 and since then he&#8217;s had numerous BBC Jazz Awards, MOBO&#8217;s, a Mercury Music Prize nomination and remained at the forefront of UK jazz with a contemporary jazz style that integrates modern British sounds like drum n bass and UK garage alongside soul, hip-hop and deep rooted influences from across the Caribbean. &#8220;In a Class of His Own.&#8221; The Times For his latest project, BLACK NOTES FROM THE DEEP (Freestyle Records) he returns to the tenor saxophone for the first time in a decade and features the vocal talents of UK soul star Omar, whose 1992 hit single There&#8217;s Nothing Like This established a truly unique and instantly recognisable &#8216;signature&#8217; sound that has since earned him widespread critical acclaim and seen him collaborate with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Erykah Badu, Carleen Anderson and Angie Stone. &#8220;Courtney Pine was one hailed as the saviour of British Jazz&#8230;he still is.&#8221; The Independent This very special project brings together two of the UK&#8217;s finest jazz and soul talents composing, recording and performing new original material together for the first time. &#8220;Nothing short of breath-taking.&#8221; The Telegraph www.courtney-pine.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

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. ]]>

£48.50, £37.60


50 years on from the first Mothers Of Invention album release Freak Out, Frank Zappa&#8217;s son Dweezil and his amazing band hand-pick their favourite tracks from Frank Zappa&#8217;s extensive back catalogue. 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 ]]>

£18


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. ]]>

<![CDATA[Nadine Shah plus Life]]> Sage Two 0.00000000 0.00000000

£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.

Wed 11 Oct, 2017. 7.30pm

£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 ]]>

This will be Gerry and The Pacemakers&#8217; farewell tour, so don&#8217;t miss the chance to experience this record breaking Merseybeat band.

Brian Poole and The Tremeloes, featuring original members Brian Poole, Chip Hawkes and Dave Munden, the band that broke the Liverpool stranglehold and went on to have 21 hits that spent over 220 weeks in the UK charts. Steve Ellis, the original lead vocalist and founder of Love Affair who had five Top 20 singles, including their No. 1 Everlasting Love. Finally, Vanity Fare, scored with three top 20 hits in the late sixties, including their catchy &#8216;Hitchin&#8217; A Ride. Relive the 1960s with five of the biggest chart acts of the decade.

TUSK Festival returns for its 7th iteration this October, once again bringing its uniquely diverse programme of adventurous international music to the North East of England. Once more, alongside a truly eclectic and international music menu and TUSK’s trademark slew of UK debuts, festival goers can again enjoy the festival&#8217;s renowned film programme, exhibtions, talks, installations, interactions and more, all curated to inspire the musically curious.

The line up so far includes: Swedish punk schlock legends BRAINBOMBS, renowned for their vitriol and vision, performing their first ever UK show. UK techno experimenter BEATRICE DILLON who makes music that sounds both everyday yet utterly transformative. The mangled yet silken metropolitan hiphop cityscape sound of KLEIN. The frankly fantastical and occasionally disturbing world of enigmatic Californian duo HANS GRUSEL’S KRANKENKABINET. KINK GONG, the French field recordist who uses sounds captured in South East Asia and elsewhere and manipulates and interacts with them in ways that make them truly psychologically displacing and psychedelic. ÈLG, sound manipulator, occasional collaborator with Ghedalia Tazartes and TUSK favourite Alan Bishop and producer of occasionally serene, (and occasionally manic) soundscapes. Peerless Russian post-folk collective STARAYA DEREVNYA, perfoming in the UK for the first time. SHAREHOLDER, the Edinburgh group that sound like Dead C and The Fall had a baby.

£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 ]]>

Over the summer, he&#8217;ll be releasing a second Acoustic Classics album on Proper, coupled with Acoustic Rarities &#8211; and he&#8217;ll draw his set from all these albums and much more besides.

£13.10

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;. ]]>

Lankum (Lynched) are a four-piece traditional folk group from Dublin, Ireland, who combine distinctive four-part vocal harmonies with arrangements of uilleann pipes, concertina, Russian accordion, fiddle and guitar. Their repertoire spans humorous Dublin music-hall ditties and street-songs, classic ballads from the Traveller tradition, traditional Irish and American dance tunes, and their own original material. &#8220;The most convincing band to come out of Ireland for years!&#8221; 5 stars, The Guardian Cold Old Fire was recorded in August 2013, and although fundamentally an album of traditional Irish song, heavily influenced by Irish legends such as Frank Harte, Planxty and The Dubliners, subtle traces of the group&#8217;s collective influences can be detected, from American old-timey music, ambient techno and psychedelic folk, to black metal, punk and rock n&#8217; roll. &#8220;Anarchic, yet connected, rootsy and gutsy… I love their music, it is just so damn good!&#8221; Mike Harding Since then, the group have completed a six week coast-to-coast tour of the United States, as well as performing in the last two years alongside some notable artists, including Blackbird Raum, Harry Bradley, Daoiri Farrell, Fred Fortune, Mike Gangloff, Paddy &amp; Séamus Glackin, Barry Gleeson, Landless, Lau, Leyla McCalla, Jem Mitchell, Liam O&#8217;Connor &amp; Seán McKeon, Morgan O&#8217;Kane, Lisa O&#8217;Neill, Tim Scanlon and Skipper&#8217;s Alley. &#8220;Cold Old Fire is a sure contender for any Irish album of the year lists.&#8221; Songlines The band played a blinding set at last year&#8217;s Celtic Connections festival, where they were snapped up for both Cambridge Folk Festival and Sidmouth FolkWeek 2015.

It continues into the poetic universe of the French chansons by Brel, Piaf, Ferre and further to the Argentinian world of Tango by Astor Piazzolla. 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.

Gold Circle £42, £36.50


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 ]]>

£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. ]]>

£21.30


Kayhan Kalhor: Kamancheh Toumani Diabate: Kora The Iranian Kamanche virtuoso Kayhan Kalhor is one of the internationally best known exponents of Persian and Kurdish music. He has not only played concerts with the legendary Persian singers Mohammad Reza Shajarian and Shahram Nazeri, but has also become known to international audiences through his collaboration with Yo-Yo Ma, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and the film-maker Francis Ford Copolla. Kayhan Kalhor loves to collaborate and encounter musicians from other traditions. Thus he has worked with Indian musicians, performed together with the Azerbaijani singer Alim Qasimov at the Morgenland Festival Osnabrück and has played for many years with the Turkish Baglama virtuoso Erdal Erzincan. Toumani Diabaté will meet Kalhor for the first time in Osnabrück. Toumani Diabaté comes from an ancient Griot family, who claim to be able to trace their ancestry back 70 generations. Griots are the guardians of history, literature and music in their culture. Diabaté learned to play the Kora from his father Sidiki Diabaté and now often performs with his own son. Today, Toumani Diabaté is recognized as one of the most influential musicians from West Africa and as an excellent player of the Kora, the West African double bridge harp-lute. Just like Kayhan Kalhor, Diabaté has sought out musicians with other styles. For example, he has worked with the Icelandic singer Björk, the flamenco band Ketama and the American jazz trombonist Roswell Rudd. facebook.com/KayhanKalhor | facebook.com/toumanidiabatemusic ]]>

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.

<![CDATA[Martin Stephenson & The Daintees]]> Sage Two 0.00000000 0.00000000

£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 ]]>

DakhaBrakha are a world music quartet from Kiev, Ukraine. Reflecting fundamental elements of sound and soul, Ukrainian “ethno-chaos” band DakhaBrakha, create a world of unexpected new music. The name DakhaBrakha is original, outstanding and authentic at the same time. It means “give/take” in the old Ukrainian language. Accompanied by Indian, Arabic, African, Russian and Australian traditional instrumentation, the quartet’s astonishingly powerful and uncompromising vocal range creates a trans-national sound rooted in Ukrainian culture. “The group mixes everything from punk-pop to traditional Ukrainian songs in cool yet beguiling textures, often with the close harmonies usually associated with Balkan music. But it’s really the live shows that take DakhaBrakha beyond mere curiosity to utter brilliance.” NPR Watch their performance at Glastonbury 2016 dakhabrakha.com.ua ]]>

£24


This December the incomparable Benjamin Clementine will play Sage One, two years after performing to a packed house in Sage Two. Especially beloved for his emotionally charged live performances, the Edmonton singer, songwriter and poet has released his first music since 2015&#8217;s Mercury Prize winning debut album At Least For Now. Entitled ‘Phantom of Aleppoville’ the track was written, recorded and produced by Clementine and follows his recent collaboration with Gorillaz on Hallelujah Money. Accompanied by a video shot by photographer Craig McDean and filmmaker Masha Vasyukova, Clementine composed Phantom of Aleppoville after being affected by the writing of pioneering British psychoanalyst Donald Winicott. He wrote extensively about children who have experienced bullying in the home and at school, discovering that while the trauma was naturally not comparable in scale to that suffered by children displaced by war, its effects followed similar patterns. Seeing in Winicott’s writing a mirror of his own childhood experiences, Clementine chose the title – the “little city of Aleppo” – to symbolise a place where children encounter such bullying. Says Clementine, “Aleppoville is a place where many are bullied if not all, but no one understands nor see why; Phantom.” Benjamin Clementine released his debut album At Least For Now in January 2015. The album secured Clementine the UK Mercury Prize and in France the ‘Best New Act’ honours at Les Victories de la Musique, whilst in the U.S Clementine featured on the cover of the New York Times, interviewed by David Byrne. “a true original… his intense songs, autobiographical and elliptical as they are, could not conceivably be anyone else.” ?????

<![CDATA[Stuart Maconie: Jarrow Road to the Deep South]]> Sage Two 0.00000000 0.00000000

£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 ]]>

Nils Frahm had an early introduction to music, learning the piano throughout his childhood.

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 ]]>

£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 ]]>

Twice recent winners of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Duo – 2016 &amp; 2013 – the couple’s intimacy and strength of passion on stage have won them many fans and an enviable reputation as ‘Songwriters par excellence’- (fRoots), whose greatly varied original songs cover such subjects as wicked mermaids, Norwegian legends, and a lonely whale. Building upward from their last two highly praised albums ‘Hidden People’ &amp; ‘Tomorrow Will Follow Today’, fans of acoustic music can only wonder where this leading couple will choose to turn next. With a story that includes over 20 years of music making with the likes of Seth Lakeman, Cara Dillon, Levellers, Kate Rusby and Show of Hands, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have consolidated themselves as pillars of modern British folk. &#8220;Kathryn Roberts smoky, assertive vocals are a tasty feast for listeners craving music that requires a sharp mind and an open heart.&#8221; Billboard Magazine &#8220;As a guitarist, producer and co-songwriter, Sean Lakeman is one of the unsung heroes of modern British folk.&#8221; MOJO kathrynrobertsandseanlakeman.com | Twitter ]]>

Julian Rachlin conductor Jian Wang cello Royal Northern Sinfonia Tchaikovsky Rococo Variations Tchaikovsky Andante Cantabile Tchaikovsky Symphony No.6 ‘Pathétique’ Described by some as Tchaikovsky&#8217;s epitaph, the composer’s great &#8216;Pathétique&#8217; symphony takes the listener on a journey across the emotional spectrum. The music darts between stormy moods, lighthearted dances and even an energetic march – before it ultimately gives way to the symphony’s, and life’s, inevitable Fate.
