£13.10


We are sorry to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances The Grahams concert on Sunday 26 February has been cancelled. We hope to reschedule The Grahams in the near future. Ticket holders will be contacted to arrange a full refund. The dynamic Americana duo, The Grahams (Alyssa Graham and Doug Graham), blend deeply personal, emotive and powerful lyrics with beautiful harmonies. The performance also includes a screening of their short film Rattle The Hocks. The film is a loose, but intimate look at The Grahams and is narrated by both Alyssa and Doug (the narration was written by Bryan McCann). Alyssa says, “There’s a special connection between American folk music and the railroad that has no parallel elsewhere in the world.” She talks about the band’s own goals in traveling by train: “We’re looking for the modern echo of older sounds.” The film is about the band, the rails and the land and towns they visited, but mostly it is about the music. &#8220;Alyssa has a great voice, crystal clear, full of fire and passion perfectly complimented by Doug on dobro and vocals.&#8221; The Irish Post “A dynamic Americana duo who’ve married their love of adventure with a desire to build on foundations laid by their musical predecessors.” Americana UK www.thegrahamsmusic.net | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

<![CDATA[Stornoway - The Farewell Tour plus special guests Brasstronaut]]> Sage Two 0.00000000 0.00000000

£17, £15


After more than ten years playing together the band have decided that now is the right time to end, and see the upcoming dates as the perfect way to send off. Stornoway have released three studio albums, a surprise mini album and two EPs. Their most recent effort, 2015&#8217;s Bonxie, saw the band combine their two great passions, music and the environment, to create a record indebted to nature and specifically, birds. Produced by Gil Norton of Foo Fighters and Pixies fame, the record saw Stornoway take a step out of their comfort zone, creating something bold and inherently beautiful. The record was a success, entering the UK Charts inside the Top 20. The touring cycle saw the band play two, sold out shows at Oxford&#8217;s Sheldonian Theatre, five years after they were the first pop band to play the venue. Having initially formed in 2005, Stornoway have had an undoubtedly stellar career, full of landmark moments. In November 2009 they became the first unsigned band to appear on Later&#8230;With Jools Holland, performing alongside Sting, Jay &#8211; Z and Foo Fighters. They signed their record deal with taste-making indie label 4AD in Stornoway, also playing a landmark gig on their first visit to the town that gave them their name, in April 2010. &#8220;We have achieved far more as a band than we ever dared to dream back as students in a drafty east Oxford garage and we are immensely proud of the music we have created together. We are eternally grateful to all our wonderful fans and friends who have given us so much support throughout our career, and we look forward to celebrating the last 10 years with you on a (whale of a) farewell tour next spring.&#8221; www.stornoway.eu | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£26.88, £24.73


Enjoy an evening of musical celebration with Fairport Convention at this golden anniversary concert. Credited with originating British folk-rock, Fairport first took to the stage in 1967’s summer of love. Throughout the intervening five decades (and numerous changes of line-up) the band’s passion for live performance has never wavered. &#8220;Impressive musicians with a great back catalogue&#8230;(they) take chances and clearly enjoy themselves.&#8221; The Guardian To mark its fiftieth year, Fairport has released a brand new CD titled 50:50@50. The band will play a selection of tracks from the album as well as long-established favourites from their extensive repertoire. Tonight’s concert will also feature an opening performance by Sally Barker, one of England’s most talented singer-songwriters. Sally came to prominence in the all-girl folk group The Poozies but is best known for her appearances on the BBC TV talent show The Voice where she sang on Sir Tom Jones’ team. &#8220;Vigorous and confident&#8230;the music leapt around the room.&#8221; The Mirror Fairport Convention has attracted critical acclaim throughout its long career. The band won a coveted BBC Lifetime Achievement Award, Radio 2 listeners voted Fairport’s groundbreaking album Liege &amp; Lief &#8220;The Most Influential Folk Album of All Time&#8221;, and their story and music has often featured on radio and television. Fairport Convention’s line-up is Simon Nicol on guitar and vocals, Dave Pegg on bass guitar, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, Ric Sanders on violin and Gerry Conway on drums and percussion. www.fairportconvention.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£25.60


Simon Green aka Bonobo is back with his sixth album – the masterful, magisterial Migration – is a record which cements his place in the very highest echelons of electronic music and beyond. By turns lush, manic, beautiful, melancholy, joyful, packed with both emotion and technical skill, this is perhaps his most ambitious attempt yet to capture the very textures of human existence in his work, as Green says of the broad dynamics on the album, &#8220;Life has highs, lows, loud and quiet moments, beautiful ones and ugly ones. Music is a reflection of life.&#8221; Bonobo’s last album, The North Borders, went Top 30 in the UK and was number 1 in the electronic charts in both the US and UK. In support, his 12-piece collective (over an 18 month period) played 175 shows across four continents and 30 countries, wowing a total audience of around 2 million people. In fact, Songkick reckoned him to be amongst the most travelled artists on the planet that year. Over the course of five albums for the legendary label Ninja Tune, a myriad of tours, singles, remixes and production work for other artists, Bonobo has built a large, loyal and engaged global fanbase: over half a million album sales and over one hundred and fifty million streams on Spotify point to the levels of success achieved by this quiet, self-effacing man. bonobomusic.com | Facebook | Twitter | Soundcloud ]]>

£10.90


Described by Songlines as &#8216;a future classic&#8217; and by Acoustic Magazine as &#8216;an enchanting delight&#8217;, the award-winning singer and composer brings his solo show which uses an original 19th century Polyphon machine as part of the performance. Live, clockwork and sampled sound beautifully crafted into modern morality tales and intriguing instrumental music. Luke&#8217;s work as a member of the Cara Dillon Band or Riverdance Orchestra sets his pedigree at the very highest level and promises a night of outstanding acoustic songs and music. The Polyphon is a disc-playing music box, a mechanical device manufactured in Leipzig, Germany in 1880. Disc projections, called plectra, engage with a series of ratchet-like star wheels, that, when moved through 40 degrees on their axis, pluck 120 teeth on the instruments bed plate and comb, these teeth then resonate, sounding predetermined notes. Upon the musical comb, the fast treble notes are sounded furthest from the centre and the slower base notes nearest the centre. Newly manufactured 19 and 5/8th inch diameter steel discs rotate at 1.4 rpm and perform the first new music written for Polyphon in over a century. www.lukedanielsmusic.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Lauren Laverne interviews Viv Albertine at the Free Thinking Festival for the first edition of BBC Radio 4’s Late Night Woman’s Hour to be recorded in front of an audience. Guitarist in pioneering all-female punk band The Slits, whose 1979 album Cut is frequently voted one of the most influential albums of all time, Viv Albertine’s autobiography is called Clothes, Clothes, Clothes, Music, Music, Music, Boys, Boys, Boys. She hasn’t always had an easy relationship with her punk past, and didn’t tell her daughter about it for many years. Following the breakup of The Slits, Albertine briefly worked as an aerobics instructor before going on to film-making, acting (she took a lead role in Joanna Hogg’s 2013 film Exhibition) and a solo recording career (debut solo album The Vermilion Border was released in 2012). When her autobiography was first published, with its frank reflections on (amongst other things) masturbation, sex, the punk ethos, IVF, and marriage, Albertine confessed to journalist Alexis Petridis that she worried “have I gone too far? I always go too far.” Nevertheless, she argues, honesty and a willingness to get things wrong have always been central to her creativity: “I want (young women) to see how often you have to fail to be anything in life.” For your information&#8230; A second batch of tickets will be released at 12noon on Friday 17 February.

General Info: A second batch of tickets will be released at 12noon on Friday 17 February.


&#8220;Sleep is that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together&#8221;. Thomas Dekker (1572- 1632) &#8220;Take control of your sleep,&#8221; says Professor Russell Foster CBE, leading neuroscientist and this year’s opening lecturer on the festival theme of the Speed of Life. Sleeping consumes 1/3 of our lifetimes, but Professor Foster believes our sleeping hours are still not properly appreciated. His research shows how our bodies, honed by 3 million years of evolution, follow a natural clock and not the man-made one in daily use. He believes that all life on the planet has developed a 24 hour timing system which humans now use to fine-tune our rhythms. And yet Britain’s sleep problems have never been more acute: three separate surveys over the past decade indicate insomnia has increased across the population – and it’s becoming a source of public debate and private misery. Professor Foster comes to Sage Gateshead to explain the neuroscience of sleep and sets out the case for a change in approach. Hosted by Radio 3 presenter Matthew Sweet. Russell Foster is Head of the Nuffield Laboratory of Ophthalmology and Senior Fellow at Brasenose College Oxford. His books (written with Leon Kreitzman) include The Rhythms Of Life: The Biological Clocks That Control the Daily Lives of Every Living Thing, Circadian Rhythms: A Very Short Introduction and Seasons of Life: The biological rhythms that enable living things to thrive and survive.

Today, Alexander’s lost civilization is lost again. And Masson? For his next trick, he accidentally started the most disastrous war of the nineteenth century.

&#8220;The old believe everything; the middle-aged suspect everything; the young know everything.&#8221; Oscar Wilde The former Health Minister now broadcaster and writer Edwina Currie, the journalist and broadcaster Miranda Sawyer and the English teacher and columnist Lola Okolosie discuss the different times of our lives with Free Thinking presenter Anne McElvoy. Recent scientific research has found that women have the time of their lives at the age of 34. Later though, as they juggle parenthood and work they are at their most stressed. But, by the age of 58, they start to get their life-work balance sorted out. With more time to relax and no babies on the horizon life looks better. And, with an average life expectancy of 82.9 years, perhaps women may have time to enjoy their new lives. Edwina Currie was a Conservative MP for 14 years before retiring in 1988. Since then she has presented TV and radio programmes, appeared on Strictly Come Dancing and as the Wicked Queen in pantomime. She has been described as ‘a brash and energetic life force’. Her books include Diaries 1987-1992, and novels including The Ambassador, Chasing Men, This Honourable House and A Parliamentary Affair. Miranda Sawyer began her career writing for Smash Hits and now writes for newspapers and magazines including The Observer. She has interviewed arts figures for BBC Two’s Culture Show, and presented programmes on 6 Music, BBC Radio 4 and podcasts. Her new book Out of Time explores her midlife crisis. Lola Okolosie is an English teacher and regular columnist for The Guardian on race, politics, education and feminism. She is editor-at-large for Media Diversified, an online publishing platform. Anne McElvoy is Senior Editor at The Economist, and writes columns for London Evening Standard and The Guardian.

&#8220;To build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day.&#8221; Winston Churchill &#8220;To be perfect is to change often.&#8221; Winston Churchill Harriet Harman, who has just written her autobiography A Woman’s Work, was first elected a Labour MP in 1982 and has served as the acting leader of her party twice in her career. She talks to Free Thinking presenter Philip Dodd about championing women’s rights and sustaining a political career in a fast-changing political landscape. In his final year of office, President Obama talked about how difficult it is today to keep the public focused on the long term when the short term response has taken over. “The 24-hour news cycle”, he said,” is just so lightning fast and the attention span I think is so short that sometimes it&#8217;s difficult to keep everybody focused on the long term.” Are UK politicians now better at campaigning than producing policies that look to the future? Philip Dodd helped to set up BBC2&#8217;s The Late Show, is an award winning broadcaster and a regular presenter of Radio 3&#8217;s arts and ideas programme Free Thinking. Across his career, he has been Director of London&#8217;s Institute of Contemporary Arts and deputy editor of the New Statesman; has curated exhibitions from Moscow to London with artists such as Yoko Ono and Eduardo Paolozzi; has published books on film, art and Englishness, and has executive produced films on the Palestinian intellectual Edward Said and by Damien Hirst.

His guests include Free Thinking Festival lecturer Russell Foster whose work on circadian rhythms sheds light on the mechanisms of our body clocks and sleep.

And the cardiac surgeon Steven Westaby understands the delicate balance between life and death: he has saved hundreds of lives, holding each heart in his hand and feeling its beat. And the mathematician Eugenia Cheng considers what it means when that beat goes on forever, with her study of the infinite. Join them for this special recording of the programme broadcast Monday mornings on BBC Radio 4. In addition to Start the Week, Tom Sutcliffe has presented the BBC Radio 4 arts show Saturday Review since 1998, and is also chairman of Round Britain Quiz.

News reports of the Biafran war (1967-1970), with their depictions of starving children, created images of Africa which have become imprinted. Biafra endured a campaign of heavy shelling, creating a constant stream of refugees out of fallen areas as territory was lost to Nigeria. Within Igbo culture specific rites and rituals need to be performed when a person dies. To die and be buried ‘abroad’, away from one’s ancestral home or to not be buried properly, impedes the transition to the realm of the ancestors. Louisa Egbunike explores the legacy of the Biafran war and considers the image of those spirits unable to journey to the next realm, and left to roam the earth.

Creating Modern India How did a modernist style develop in India between the 1900s and the 1950s? Preti Taneja, who grew up in Letchworth Garden City, traces the way the Garden City Movement inspired the work of Edwin Lutyens in his reshaping of her parents&#8217; New Delhi. The first generation of post-Independence architects built on this legacy, drawing also from Le Corbusier, who designed India’s first post-partition planned city, Chandigarh, with its famous &#8216;open hand&#8217; sculpture; and from Frank Lloyd Wright and Walter Gropius, to create some of the most iconic public buildings across India today. In art, something similar was happening: painter MF Hussain and a group of fellow radicals wanting to break away from Indian traditions and make an international statement. They formed The Progressive Artists Group in December 1947, just months after Partition. Preti Taneja’s essay explores this cultural re-imagining of the new nation, when architects and artists tried to come to terms with India’s political and aesthetic history, looking forward to a future they could design, build and express themselves: one that was meant to shape human behaviour for the better.

J S Bach: St Matthew Passion Since its first performance in Leipzig on Good Friday 1727, Bach&#8217;s St Matthew Passion has become one of the pinnacles of the choral repertoire. The work&#8217;s intricate design, mixing the Passion story narrated by the tenor Evangelist with dramatic choral crowd scenes, individual responses in the solo arias, and communal reflections in the chorales, creates a moving meditation on the events leading up to Christ&#8217;s death. Several of the country&#8217;s leading early music singers, along with a double orchestra of period instruments, join the Newcastle Bach Choir for a memorable reflection on the Easter story.

The ruined priory of Tynemouth nestles on a Northumbrian clifftop, staring out at the fog and foam of the North Sea. In the 14th century it was a proving ground – and occasional prison camp – for monks from the wealthy mother monastery of St Albans. But the monks here didn’t just isolate themselves, pray and complain about the food (though they did do those things). They also studied astronomy. Writing treatises, computing tables and designing new instruments, they contemplated the nature of a divinely-wound clockwork universe.

General Info: A second batch of tickets will be released at 12noon on Friday 17 February.


A century ago Tokyo was the bustling, cosmopolitan capital of a growing empire, where the meaning of ‘time’ was hotly contested. Critics attacked the relentless ‘clock time’ of new factories and businesses and the ‘leisure time’ of youngsters who favoured cafes or poetry rather than exerting themselves in empire-building. Buddhist thinkers and folklorists claimed that Japan must rediscover its natural sense of time as seasonal and cyclical, rather than mechanical. Christopher Harding contemplates the way these attempts at escape became useful fodder for Japan’s militarist ideologues – working for the Emperor, his palace tucked away amongst the trees in central Tokyo, whose own sense of time stretched back into myth and from there into divinity.

As a young man, Nick became intrigued by events on earth 230 million years ago, when an extraordinary number of different species of animal and insects emerged. Many of the weird beasts that Nick has unearthed make dinosaurs look commonplace. And a recent find in the Scottish Borders has revealed the earliest vertebrate known to live on land. Nick talks to Jim about travelling back in time as he digs ever deeper into the rocks and why for him, professionally at least, days, weeks, even centuries are irrelevant. Dr Nick Fraser is a paleontologist at the National Museum of Scotland. He has uncovered fossils in the Scottish borders, Virginia, USA and Southern China Jim Al-Khalili is Professor of Physics at the University of Surrey and presenter of BBC Radio 4’s The Life Scientific and TV documentaries.

Tommy is famous for his own arrangement of &#8216;Danny Boy&#8217;, &#8216;Isle of Inisfree&#8217; and &#8216;Hard Times&#8217; all songs that you know and love but you have never heard them until you hear Tommy Fleming&#8217;s versions.

The living legacy of Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan When legendary qawwali maestro Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, popularly known as &#8220;Shahenshah-eQawwali&#8221;, died in 1997, his family&#8217;s six-century musical tradition did not end. The legacy of qawwali, a form of devotional music popular in South Asia, was passed to his nephews, Rizwan and Muazzam, exceptional singers who carry on the Sufi tradition of musical devotion and exaltation. Performing together since the 1990s, their incredible shows at festivals around the world, including WOMAD, have seen them develop a devoted worldwide following. The brothers perform songs that use hypnotic vocal repetition to induce a state of ecstasy. Backed by traditional instruments gharana, harmonium and tabla, the brothers’ rich voices soar, pushed onwards by pulsing music and rhythmic handclaps. Rizwan and Muazzam are the torchbearers of the Qawwali tradition. In the 20th anniversary year since Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s passing, the brothers’ are keeping their Uncle’s legacy very much alive – and their imaginative reinterpretation of classic Sufi texts is a rare and transcendent experience that you will not want to miss. Presented in association with Asian Arts Agency Part of a UK tour produced and managed by Asian Arts Agency &#8220;Intoxicating and entrancing, “Rizwan and Muazzam’s voices climb and swoop as if riding air currents; the harmonium seeks a similar undulating flight path while fingertips flutter like hummingbirds across the tablas.&#8221; (BBC) &#8220;One of the most exhilarating improvised vocal styles on the planet.&#8221; (The Guardian) www.rizwanmuazzam.com | Facebook ]]>

Among the most inventive and influential bands in the history of popular music, 10cc are one of the very few acts to have achieved commercial, critical and creative success in equal measure. Testament to 10cc&#8217;s ongoing appeal, the band can count a generation straddling array of fellow artists, everyone from Chrissie Hynde to The Feeling&#8217;s Dan Gillespie and Axl Rose to Sophie Ellis Bextor, among their many millions of fans. 2012 marked the 40th anniversary of the release of 10cc&#8217;s first single Donna, which reached No.2 in the UK charts and kick-started a remarkable career that has seen the band sell in excess of 30 million albums around the world. This concert sees former 10cc member Kevin Godley joining co-founder Graham Gouldman and the band on stage for the first time in many years. Godley has also teamed up with Gouldman and 10cc&#8217;s other original members to help produce a 5-disc CD box set that houses approximately 80 tracks from across the band&#8217;s hugely successful career together with a DVD containing rare live footage and promo videos. &#8220;Where did the years ago? It is hard to believe that it has been 40 years since we were in the studio recording Donna &#8211; but I am delighted that the music of 10cc is alive and well in 2012,&#8221; says Gouldman.

Caro’s second album The Shocking Miss Emerald, released in May 2013, entered the Official UK Album Chart at No. 1 remaining in the chart for an entire year. With more than 2.5 million record sales, 40 million YouTube views, a host of awards, and a string of sold out tours and performances at festivals throughout Europe including Glastonbury and Isle of Wight, Caro has made her mark.

In just 2 years, fiery saxophone-drum duo Binker &amp; Moses have won a loyal following for their intense, hypnotic live show. Their debut album Dem Ones was recorded live in Mark Ronson&#8217;s Zelig Studio for Gearbox Records and won the coveted MOBO award for Best Jazz Act. Named as both Breakthrough Act &amp; Jazz Act of The Year at the 2016 Jazz FM Awards, Binker &amp; Moses will be releasing their highly anticipated 2nd album in early 2017 ahead of international touring. Formed of keyboardist Dan Nicholls (who has worked with Squarepusher and Matthew Herbert), drummer Dave Smith and guitar and synth man Matt Calvert (Three Trapped Tigers, Heritage Orchestra), Strobes have created, via their debut release Brokespeak, a sound that eschews genre and feels free from time-stamps. Conjuring big beats and a vast array of sonic possibilities, Strobes flickers effortlessly between the worlds of electro-improv, minimalist polyrhythm, Afrocentric grooves and distinctively original hooks. Built from collective composition, studio production, live sampling and improv jams, the music ranges from fiery, exhilarating odd-tempo loops, to polyphonic synth soundscapes and &#8216;beats that make loose clothing shimmer and earings rattle&#8217; (TheArtsDesk).

£15

Prefix: Gateshead International Jazz Festival


This remarkable concert sees the UK’s acclaimed National Youth Jazz Orchestra join forces with its German and Dutch counterparts (Germany’s BuJazzO and NJJO from the Netherlands – aka the &#8220;Young Oraje&#8221; of jazz) for an evening of exceptional music making from the leading lights of Europe’s next generation of jazz musicians. Following a hugely successful collaboration between NYJO and BuJazzO in 2014, the two bands resolved to work together again, this time with the Netherland’s Nationaal Jeugd Jazz Orkest &#8211; NJJO. All three ensembles have a maximum age of 25 and comprise the best young jazz musicians from their respective countries. The concert will feature members of all three bands in a range of combinations led by their three Music Directors. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Europe’s finest emerging jazz talent in action. The programme includes: The First Circle (Pat Metheney) September in the Rain (Warren/Dubin arr. Callum Au) Dawn Before Dark Before Dawn (Tim Garland) The Hunt (Armstrong) (“concerto grosso” piece for big band and sextet) Absolution (Martin Fondse) Out In The Country with the Lowland Cowboys (Martin Fondse) A Rosa (Martin Fondse) Cuban Fire (Johnny Richards) Speaking about how the project came together, Mark Armstrong, Managing Director of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra said: &#8220;The whole concept for “Three Nations Under One Groove” is to demonstrate that jazz is a universal language spoken by young musicians across Europe, with the variety of colours and “jazz dialects&#8221; used by all three nations coming together to add nuance and conversation to the repertoire we play. One key element was that although all three groups brought their own repertoire and players, we would perform as mixed groups rather than separately as NYJO, BuJazzO and NJJO. The music ranged from NYJO’s eclectic mix of arrangements and commissions, original compositions by the NJJO director Martin Fondse, the epic Cuban Fire by Johnny Richards for Stan Kenton, and a “jazz concerto grosso” for big band and small solo group specially written for the project. The enthusiasm of the response from European audiences confirmed that the experiment was a success and we are looking forward to presenting this again in the UK in late March/early April.&#8221; Save with the Jazz Multibuy!

The Instant Composers Pool (ICP) has never confined itself to styles or genres, although it is most often placed in the jazz category. They produce an exuberant, unexpected cacophony that more often than not melts into ear-catching ditties and opportunities to sing along. Han Bennink, the ICP’s drummer and co-founder, is 75 years young, and can tear up the stage with only a snare drum, or less! The exact programme is always a surprise, as the band decides just a few minutes before the performance what they will be playing &#8211; and sometimes even change their minds during the concert itself. So their motto has been ‘Never the Same Show Twice’ as it has been for the past 50 years. Han is always happy to interact with young people in the audience, and many a jazz professional caught the bug when seeing and hearing the ICP as a youngster.

Composer/pianist and grand duke of jazz Misha Mengelberg (born 1935) has been submerged in the shadow of dementia, ending his life as a musician. At the London jazz club Vortex in 2013 he impressively says his goodbyes to the international stage. It&#8217;s also his last major performance with his band, the Instant Composers Pool Orchestra. The musicians find it hard to let him go, but Misha&#8217;s decline is constant, and he slowly fades away from their midst. A film about exceptional loyalty, dilemmas, respect and dedication.

Celebrating both 50 years of the group, and also Han Bennink&#8217;s 75th birthday, the Instant Composers Pool (ICP) are in residence at the 2017 festival with concerts, a workshop, a film and exhibition. The Instant Composers Pool is a unique and internationally renowned collective of Dutch composer-improviser-instrumentalists formed in 1967 by Misha Mengelberg, Han Bennink and Willem Breuker. Over the years, the ever-evolving orchestra has collaborated with many giants of the experimental music world. Their current line-up consists of ten of the most innovative musical voices from around the globe, including ICP co-founder Han Bennink &#8211; one of the most in demand drummers in Europe, saxophonists/clarinettists Michael Moore, Ab Baars and trombonist Wolter Wierbos. They are joined by Tobias Delius (clarinet, tenor sax), Ernst Glerum (double-bass). Thomas Heberer (cornet, trumpet), Tristan Honsinger (cello), Guus Janssen (piano, organ) and Mary Oliver (violin, viola) all of whom are highly active with bands across Europe and North America. Sadly co-founder Misha Mengelberg, who appeared along with Han Bennink at the 2006 Gateshead International Jazz Festival is no longer well enough to perform. The exact programme is always a surprise, as the band decides just a few minutes before the performance what they will be playing. From ragtime to swing, bop to free jazz, classical to carnival, the ICP Orchestra continues to be at the forefront of experimental music. Nothing else sounds quite like them and no two gigs are ever alike. &#8220;&#8230;The Instant Composers Pool Orchestra, from Amsterdam, &#8230;.they are scholars and physical comedians, critics and joy-spreaders.&#8221; New York Times icporchestra.com Jazz knows no borders, and Garibaldi Plop is a great example of European cooperation. Although the trio is based in Paris, pianist Roberto Negro is from Italy, and they played one of their first ever gigs right here on Tyneside.

Their music moves seamlessly from almost chambers tranquility to stretches of furious energy, with the piano and Valentin Ceccaldi’s cello pushed to their technical limits, while drummer Sylvain Darrifourcq lays down a polyrhythmic framework that holds everything together.

Spacebound Apes showcases Neil’s work as a dazzling composer of dynamic and cinematic music. Hypnotic passages create heart-pounding suspense while sweet, whispered themes create emotion-shattering empathy.

This concert sees the trio perform the new album in its entirety. Neil Cowley is joined by long time band mates, Evan Jenkins on drums and Rex Horan on bass with guest appearance by Brian Eno collaborator Leo Abrahams on guitars and FX.

A concert that charts a jazz journey from South and West Africa to the latin jazz of Cuba &#8211; and featuring three of today’s stellar international jazz performers. Richard Bona’s Mandekan Cubano Richard Bona is known as &#8220;The African Sting&#8221; and is a supremely gifted bassist with an exquisite voice like no other. He explores the alchemy of African rhythms in Cuba. Originally from Cameroon, Richard Bona arrived in New York in the mid 90s and wowed crowds with his unique sound and presence with some even hinting that was the second coming of Jaco Pastorius. His seemingly effortless voice, fierce skills on the bass, unique songwriting/arranging expertise and ability to learn just about any instrument simply from watching, position him as a rare African artist to have established an unscalable reputation on an international platform. He has toured the world with Pat Metheny and appeared as a guest on two of Bobby McFerrin’s albums, along with numerous notable collaborations. His latest project melds together a variety of roots music from Africa, South America and Cuba. Bona’s six-piece Cuban band includes two percussionists making this celebration ripple and soar. richard-bona.com &#8220;Imagine an artist with Jaco Pastorius’s virtuosity, George Benson’s vocal fluidity, Joao Gilberto’s sense of song and harmony, all mixed up with African culture. Ladies and gentlemen, we bring you Richard Bona!&#8221; Los Angeles Times Alfredo Rodriguez Trio Mentored by none other than Quincy Jones, the prodigiously talented young Cuban pianist is rapidly amassing international plaudits, reflected in his standout performance as a special guest on the BBC Proms tribute to Quincy Jones in August 2016, in which Richard Bona also appeared. His expansive style combines a breath-taking technique with a tirelessly inventive imagination, and adds his own individual response to the traditions of his native Cuba. Rodriguez will play the music from his most recent album, Tocororo telling his own personal story through the legend of Cuba&#8217;s national bird &#8211; a tale of freedom, travel and cultural cross-pollination. &#8220;Ebullient and sultry piano, intricate and irresistible rhythm.&#8221; Financial Times alfredomusic.com Shabaka Hutchins and The Ancestors Shabaka Hutchins, the saxophonist behind Sons of Kemet and The Comet Is Coming, as well as featuring with Melt Yourself Down and Sun Ra Arkestra, presents his new collaboration with The Ancestors. Their debut album Wisdom of Elders (released on Gilles Peterson’s label, Brownswood) was recorded in a single day with a group of South African jazz musicians Shabaka has long admired from his numerous trips to South Africa, led by trumpeter Mandla Mlangeni. The group draw on their South African lineage – heroes like Zim Ngqawana and Bheki Mseleku – to bring their own slant to the American jazz lineage being reconfigured in Hutchings’ compositions themselves. Going beyond the jazz greats Hutchings cites, influences are drawn from plenty of other sources: Caribbean calypso, central African song structures and Southern African Nguni music. Shabaka has performed and recorded with Courtney Pine&#8217;s Jazz Warriors, Mulatu Astatke and the Heliocentrics, Polar Bear and Soweto Kinch and performed with many notable musicians including Jack DeJohnette, Charlie Haden’s Liberation Music Orchestra, Louis Moholo, Evan Parker, King Sunny Ade and Orlando Julius. &#8220;Pulsing, exploratory and vibrant.&#8221; The Guardian shabakaandtheancestors.bandcamp.com Save with the Jazz Multibuy!

We have most recently been reminded of Hay&#8217;s outstanding talent from his many appearances in US comedy series Scrubs &#8211; which became a staple of evening television here in the UK and throughout the globe. Although he&#8217;s one of Australia&#8217;s best-known exports, Colin Hay was born in Kilwinning, Scotland, and to this day remains hugely popular in the country and the rest of the UK. Hay has released ten albums since founding own label Lazy Eye in 1992. Since 2003, Hay has rebuilt his name recognition. &#8220;I went from playing for 50 people a few years ago, to 500 and 1,000 seat venues. I&#8217;d like to speed it up a bit, cause I&#8217;m running out of life,&#8221; Hay quips in fine Scottish style, &#8220;but for the most part I&#8217;m happy to be on the road and still making music, and attracting ever increasing audiences.&#8221; His music, most notably an acoustic version of the Men at Work hit Overkill, as well as more recent works such as Waiting for My Real Life to Begin and I Just Don&#8217;t Think I&#8217;ll Ever Get over You, has been featured on TV shows including Dawson&#8217;s Creek, Judging Amy, and Scrubs &#8211; converting a new generation of devout fans across the globe. His song I Just Don&#8217;t Think I&#8217;ll Ever Get Over You was included on the soundtrack of the Zach Braff film Garden State. Hay also appeared in an episode of the celebrated Larry Sanders Show, in Hay&#8217;s mind, a career highlight. His new album is due out in the Spring 2017 in the UK and Europe. www.colinhay.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

She is a founder member The Shee and has gained a reputation as a versatile musician performing both within the traditional music scene and for theatre.

£13.44


Few bands would dare to involve the biggest, most respected names of their genre in their latest project, but The Shee, quietly, steadily building a reputation for innovative arrangements and immaculate live performances, have undoubtedly earned the respect of their peers. The Shee&#8217;s latest project is no run of the mill, sequential album, either, but a thoughtful, considered celebration of their first decade together. Continuum was conceived by the band with Celtic Connections, one of the most influential and important festivals in contemporary British folk music. The project has given each member of The Shee license to dream: to commission a British folk musician hero to write an original piece specifically with the band in mind. The musicians duly chosen were: Andy Cutting, Brian Finnegan, Karine Polwart, Martin Simpson, Kathryn Tickell and Chris Wood, and the pieces given their world premiere at Celtic Connections 2016. Amy Thatcher (Accordion, Clogs) Laura-Beth Salter (Mandolin, Vocals) Lillias Kinsman-Blake (Flute, Whistles) Olivia Ross (Fiddle, Viola, Vocals) Rachel Newton (Electroharp, Vocals) Shona Mooney (Fiddle) Lillias Kinsman-Blake Lillias is a touring musician and workshop leader from the Scottish Borders. She is a founder member The Shee and has gained a reputation as a versatile musician performing both within the traditional music scene and for theatre, storytelling and classically inspired projects including Blair Douglas&#8217; Gaelic Mass: &#8216;An Aifreann Ghąidhlig le Bląr Dłghlas&#8217; and Alistair Anderson&#8217;s &#8216;Steel Skies&#8217;. Lillias received a CATS award for &#8216;best use of music and sound in a Scottish theatre production&#8217; and is an experienced tutor, lecturing regularly for the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Yet, her creative outlet does not lie solely in music, she is also an accomplished graphic designer and artist, creating designs for a range of social and arts organisations including National Museums Scotland. www.lillias.co.uk Shona Mooney Fiddler Shona Mooney is a Scottish Borders lass brought up in Lauder which lies close to the Lammermuir Hills. She sources traditional tunes from the Border region while her own compositions derive inspiration from a winningly magpie-minded range of subjects, both human and pastoral. Shona was a recipient of the 2006 BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year, and more recently her beautifully haunting and evocative composition Tidal Island, supported by Creative Scotland, was recorded for BBC Radio Scotland&#8217;s Global Gathering. www.shonamooneymusic.com Rachel Newton Rachel is a founder member of The Shee, The Emily Portman Trio and The Furrow Collective and also writes and performs her own solo material, releasing albums The Shadow Side in 2012 and Changeling in 2014. Rachel recently started working with Scottish/Norwegian band Boreas, was one of the eight musicians to collaborate in The Elizabethan Session. As well as voice and harp, Rachel also plays fiddle and viola and works across a range of performance platforms including theatre and storytelling. &#8220;This is the sound of modern Scotland, as surely as draws on folklore and tradition, Newton&#8217;s singing and harp at the heart of a singular vision.&#8221; The Herald &#8220;Rachel Newton is well equipped to take centre stage in her own right and this second solo albumis a beauty…fascinating stuff&#8221;.

Find Me Finding You, the new album from the new organization called the Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble, manages to strike new chords while touching familiar keys in the song of life. When we hear synth lines diving, lifting and drifting, unusual guitar textures, the plucked sound of flat wound bass strings or the bottomless pulsing of bass pedals stepping out of the mix with an exquisite vibrancy, this is the sound of the Source Ensemble! Alongside long-time collaborators Emmanuel Mario and Xavi Munoz, keyboard and flutes parts played by David Thayer were essential contributions, as well as further keys, synths and electronics from Phil M FU and several intense guitar sequences from Mason le Long. Expressing great compassion and expectation, as well as an abiding belief in an underlying unity that permeates and intimately binds all things and beings, Find Me Finding You is set for release on March 24th! ]]>

A brash, widescreen style that would have impressed Phil Spector&#8230;there is impressive variety in his exuberant approach. Classy and enormous fun.&#8221; The Guardian Their brash, widescreen style and witty reference to 60s instrumental pop is both effortlessly classy and enormous fun. Orkesta Mendoza is led by Mexican American kingpin Sergio Mendoza, who is also a member and co-producer of Tucson music legends Calexico, and arranger and founder member of Mexrrissey. &#8220;Simmering slabs of cumbia and mambo, tempered with a folkloric, tex-mex psychedelic edge.&#8221; Rhythm Passport Focused, fierce and beautifully executed by a superbly drilled set of musicians dressed in their uniform of black suits and sunglasses, the band look like nothing so much as the Blues Brothers playing at a Day of the Dead party. &#8220;A musically defiant riposte to the virulent separatism of Donald Trump.&#8221; The Independent www.orkestamendoza.com | Instagram | Facebook Part of the La Linea Festival on tour. ]]>

Voicebeat is a non-auditioned &#8216;natural voice&#8217; style choir (if you can talk, you can sing!) which explores the singing traditions of a wide range of musical genres and cultures, from folk traditions of the UK and beyond, through to rock, pop and jazz repertoire as well as original compositions. There&#8217;s an equal emphasis on achieving musical excellence, and using singing as a way of building and strengthening our social networks; Voicebeat is like a big &#8216;family&#8217; of people from all walks of life who sing together.

£13.10

Suffix: Part of the Jazz North-East Women Make Music Series


Ingrid Laubrock (saxophones); Liam Noble (piano); Tom Rainey (drums) The remarkable trio Sleepthief is a great example of the internationalism of jazz, bringing together German-born saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock, UK pianist Liam Noble, and the outstanding American drummer Tom Rainey. In fact the trio started life a decade ago when Ingrid was living in London, and the interplay between the members proved so rewarding that they have continued to tour regularly despite her relocation to Brooklyn. Although all three members are capable of turning up the heat, the predominant feel of Sleepthief is of subtlety and understatement, working within a wide spectrum of sound, rhythm, space and colour whilst maintaining a strong feeling for form. The clarity and depth of interaction in their music constantly confirms their status as one of the most rewarding groups on the world jazz landscape. They make their North East debut at Sage Gateshead in association with Jazz North East, as part of the promoters&#8217; 2017 &#8216;Women Make Music&#8217; series. ]]>

For fifty years, Al Stewart has been writing and singing songs. This concert sees him playing acoustic versions from his musical back pages going all the way back to the bedsit with Bedsitter Images. He will be accompanied by his long-time collaborator Dave Nachmanoff and guitarist Tim Renwick. Stewart came to stardom as part of the legendary British folk revival in the sixties and seventies, and developed his own unique style, combining folk-rock songs with delicately woven tales of the great characters and events from history. Al Stewart released nineteen studio albums between Bedsitter Images in 1967 and Sparks of Ancient Light in 2008. His most recent release in 2009, Uncorked with long-time collaborator Dave Nachmanoff, contains unplugged versions of his eclectic catalogue. He is perhaps best known for his hit Year of the Cat from the platinum album of the same name and the platinum follow-up album Time Passages. He played at the first ever Glastonbury Festival in 1970, worked with Yoko Ono pre-Lennon and shared a London apartment with a young Paul Simon. www.alstewart.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£25.10


The New York-based quasi-collective has gone from the best-kept secret to one of the most respected names in instrumental music. This 2017 UK tour will see Snarky Puppy play their biggest shows in the country to date, with the band performing material from their new album Culcha Vulcha. Winners of the 2013 GRAMMY award for Best R&amp;B Performance with Something with Lalah Hathaway, they have reached critically-acclaimed heights with funky groundUP hits such as Thing of Gold, Young Stuff and Binky. Snarky Puppy also picked up a GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album in 2016. Fresh off the heels of their 10th album, Family Dinner &#8211; Volume Two, their 11th album Culcha Vulcha sees the band return to its roots as an instrumental ensemble. Recorded in rural Texas with no cameras, no audience, and the opportunity to overdub, they have crafted an album much darker and moodier than any before it. The typical flash and bombastic moments that Snarky Puppy is known for have been replaced by a more patient, restrained, and sonically creative approach to both composition and performance. &#8220;Brilliant musicianship, spirited improv, blazing energy and the kind of impressively vast textures that only a band this size can achieve. But there&#8217;s something else, which trumps all of these things. There&#8217;s melody. And the kind of melody that tends to stick in your auditory cortex for days on end.&#8221; The Arts Desk &#8220;Snarky Puppy&#8217;s is a mighty sound and in full flow they can punch holes through the big band, R&amp;B and jazz fusion genres.&#8221; London Jazz News www.snarkypuppy.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Every so often a new singer emerges who&#8217;s able to assimilate multiple musical touchstones and still come off sounding remarkably fresh and unburdened by the past. Kandace Springs is one of those artists. The 27-year- old, Nashville-based singer, songwriter and pianist counts such artists as Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Roberta Flack and Norah Jones as her heroes, but as evidenced by her sparkling full-length Blue Note Records debut, Soul Eyes, Springs mimics none of them. Instead Springs allows the essence of soul, jazz and pop to compliment these aforementioned influences into a personalized sound that reveals itself effortlessly. www.kandacesprings.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

General Info: Family ticket: Four tickets to include at least one adult and one child. (Ticket Office only)


ROUTES by Giuliano Modarelli The versatile guitarist, Giuliano Modarelli uses the notion of the drone to incorporate sounds of dub and spiritual jazz to Indian Classical music, without changing the repertoire but manipulating sounds to create a new timbre to the music. As a guitarist, playing classical music on a non-traditional instrument has shaped his ideas on the sounds that can influence a style of music. Keeping the melodic material intact, Giuliano focuses on sounds, production and grooves to give new life to his music. The form though recognisable from traditional concepts of Alap, Jore, Ghat and Jhala will produce new sounds not usually associated and the development of the composition will be based around improvisations or &#8216;Sawaal Jawaab&#8217;. Combining electronic sounds with South Asian Classical music has been experimented with before but usually from the perspective of electronic producers and song writers where the composition and rhythm are at the core of the pieces. To create a live score that organically develops with the unfolding of the raga and using such technology introduces a new approach to Hindustani Classical music. Giuliano Modarelli is a versatile artist on the Guitar and one of the first people in the UK to experiment with South Asian Classical music on this instrument. His unique approach to music allows him to create a new sound to the music that has never been heard before. His commission brings together his experiences with other genres to create a new pathway of sound for Hindustani Classical music. Commissioned by zerOclassikal in association with GemArts. AN INNER VOICE by Kobini Ananth and Yarlinie Thanabalasingham Two young, talented and upcoming artists come together to create an innovative piece experimenting with a notion rarely used within Carnatic music &#8211; harmonies. Pulling away from improvisation and turning their attention to composition, An Inner Voice presents the various characteristics of harmonies and how they can be adapted to fit within the Raga structure. This has rarely been explored before due to the music&#8217;s complex rhythmic nature and strict composition structure and therefore this new and innovative piece is unique and radical in its approach. Carnatic music is predominantly taught and performed as solo music and where there are duets, it is synchronised in composition and the only divergent is in improvisation. Here, these two talented artists appreciate their different identities and ideas within the music to create a whole new composition that reflects their own journeys. Yarlinie and Kobini are two very talented upcoming Carnatic vocalists in their own right. Both learning South Asian classical music since the tender ages of eight and have since achieved major accomplishments, recognitions and awards within the sector. Yarlinie was recently awarded the &#8216;Sangeeth Ratna&#8217; award and are both also members of the national ensemble Tarang. They are artists with a new vision to portray and through harmonies they showcase progression within Carnatic music. ]]>

£16.40

Prefix: Eastside present


The Rifles are back and once again, they are about to surprise you. Two years and six months ago when their fourth album arrived, the band spoke of how &#8211; after the more serene, lush, different sounding Freedom Run (2011) &#8211; they had &#8220;started to miss that original Rifles sound a lot”. Even when they are going back to basics, it seems, The Rifles can&#8217;t help but move forward. The Rifles arrive at Sage Gateshead on the back of their fifth studio album Big Life, a body of work which sees them release and tour a double album of four sides and eighteen songs. There can&#8217;t be many other bands in the UK with as fervent a fanbase as The Rifles. They can still play, 12 years after they formed, to thousands of people in plenty of towns all over the country. They&#8217;re still not on the radio, they&#8217;re still not all over magazines, and yet they continue to be more adored than many other younger bands who are. And it is the trust that their audience has in them which inspires them to do things like Big Life: an expansive, incredibly varied record &#8211; or two records &#8211; that is the sound of a band at the absolute peak of their creativity. Amongst the long term fans who have facilitated The Rifles still being around is one very famous one: Mr Paul Weller. His influence on their music has been evident from their very first songs, and he has been an amazing mentor and sometime collaborator. It&#8217;s hard to think of a band more operating on their own terms and more outside of any sphere of influence. therifles.me.uk | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc is the brainchild of Anders Hall who felt that combining the three distinctive fiddles styles of their respective countries and regions would create a special musical sound and experience. Norway, Sweden and Shetland have three of the richest fiddle traditions in the world, with documented historical links going back hundreds of years. The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc seek to bring those historical links and traditions alive and present them in a new, exciting, dynamic and meaningful fashion, while nevertheless remaining faithful to the roots of each tradition. While blending the individual styles together they never-the-less allow each distinctive flavour to unfold into a combined sound that&#8217;s unique, intense and invigorating, while their live show is peppered through with significant amounts of onstage good humour and banter into the bargain. Their debut album attracted huge critical acclaim, with their 2016 release, Deliverance, following in the same way. The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc have already toured extensively, and performed at many high profile festivals, throughout the UK and Ireland, Europe, Scandinavia and North America and now look forward to touring further in support of their new album. A wonderful band &#8211; well and truly on the rise! www.thenordicfiddlersbloc.com Folkestra With two successful CDs and a growing national reputation, Folkestra have performed at numerous concerts and festivals across the country from Towersey to Edinburgh, as well as residencies as far away as Chicago.
