£15.30

Prefix: Great Exhibition of the North: Lauren Laverne's Great Northern Soundtrack


Manchester five-piece PINS have announced their new single Serve The Rich, produced by The Kills&#8217; Jamie Hince, which is released on 22nd September via Haus of PINS. Bold, edgy and deliriously addictive, Serve The Rich follows on from PINS recent Bad Thing EP release, which included the single Aggrophobe featuring Iggy Pop. Undeniably PINS, but with a fresh and unique sound, the Manchester fivepiece enlisted The Kills&#8217; Jamie Hince to produce the track. PINS say; &#8220;Jamie played us a reworked version of the demo and we were all blown away. I felt like he&#8217;d reached into my head and created the sound I&#8217;d been imagining.&#8221; &#8220;The track is about how sometimes we feel like we only exist to make money for other people, it&#8217;s a swizz. We are promised things by saviours, these people who have come to rescue us, but it&#8217;s not true. Serve The Rich was my opportunity to assert myself&#8217; I&#8217;m saying that we as PINS, musicians, women, Labour voters and feminists, are here to save the kids, we&#8217;re here to save each other, we&#8217;re here to save ourselves.&#8221; Recent EP Bad Thing, which received radio support from the likes of Lauren Laverne and Steve Lamacq at 6Music, culminated in a short film, largely shot in the band&#8217;s hometown of Manchester, featuring 5 separate videos for each track on the EP which made up one 20-minute film. PINS will be touring the UK and Ireland in November and the new live dates follow the band&#8217;s recent spring headline tour, which included a sold out show at London&#8217;s Moth Club, their support shows with Maximo Park and a host of summer festival performances including Reading &amp; Leeds and Festival No.6. www.wearepins.co.uk | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Prefix: Great Exhibition of the North: Lauren Laverne's Great Northern Soundtrack


&#8216;The Darkening&#8217; is the Northumbrian name for twilight, but this band&#8217;s music blazes fiercely&#8230; Kathryn Tickell &#8211; Northumbrian smallpipes, fiddle Cormac Byrne &#8211; percussion Joe Truswell &#8211; drums, programming Kate Young &#8211; fiddle, vocals Amy Thatcher &#8211; accordion, vocals Kieran Szifris &#8211; octave mandolin Musicians from Northumberland, Scotland, Ireland and England invoke the dark, powerful, shamanic sounds of Ancient Northumbria and broadcast them to the modern world. Their inspiration comes from the wild, dramatic, weather-bitten countryside along Hadrian&#8217;s Wall, which seems so quintessentially Northumbrian…and yet, almost 2000 years ago that same landscape was inhabited by people from around the world, worshipping different gods and following different customs. Kathryn Tickell &amp; The Darkening embrace that global perspective, bringing some of the oldest Northumbrian tunes and songs throbbing to life, intermingling them with new material and binding it all together with contemporary resonance and attitude. Fresh sounds merge with ancient influences. Expansive sonic textures are created. Dazzling duets from Kathryn&#8217;s pipes and Amy&#8217;s accordion contrast with the dark and dirty riffs and rhythms of Kieran&#8217;s octave mandolin. Intrepid world-traveller Kate adds her fearless explorations and the inventive use of drums and percussion unites the ensemble. &#8220;I can&#8217;t remember feeling so exhilarated by such a match of music and landscape.&#8221; Richard Morrison, The Times (on Kathryn&#8217;s Northumbrian Voices). Band members are also known for their work with: Seth Lakeman, Sting, Soumik Datta, The Shee, Monster Ceilidh Band, Songs of Separation, Carthy, Oates, Farrell &amp; Young, Moulettes, Uiscedwr, Kathryn Tickell Band and many more www.kathryntickell.com | Twitter | Instagram | Facebook Rachel Unthank &amp; Paul Smith Two North East Mercury Prize nominees from The Unthanks and Maximo Park come together to explore new territory and common ground using traditional song as a starting point. As one of two lead singers of The Unthanks, Rachel Unthank has dedicated much of her career to celebrating folk songs by writers little known beyond the North East, such as Graham Miles, Joe Wilson and Alex Glasgow Paul Smith is a North-East-based musician best known as the singer for Maximo Park. The band has released six consecutive Top 20 albums and been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize. Away from the band Smith has released two solo albums and a collaborative record with Peter Brewis of Field Music. He has also collaborated with poet Lavinia Greenlaw, as well as composing a 26-minute a cappella piece of music for Great North Run Culture. He currently hosts the Penguin Podcast, interviewing best-selling authors about their work. Jim Ghedi Born in Sheffield before moving around various parts of the British Isles and then settling in Moss Valley &#8211; an abandoned and forgotten area on the edgelands of South Yorkshire and North East Derbyshire &#8211; it makes perfect sense that 26 year old Jim Ghedi’s music feels both fluidly transient yet also deeply rooted to a sense of place. His current solo work explores connections to the natural environments and heritage of rural communities and landscapes across the British Isles, including the village in which he grew up. Drawing musically from some genre-crossing ideas combining 6 &amp; 12 string finger-style guitar composition, orchestral arrangments and traditional folk song.. Nature permeates through his second solo album ‘A Hymn For Ancient Land’ (released this winter to much praise on Basin Rock) He will be heading out on tour throughout the year with his band, good friends Neal Heppleston on Double Bass and Dbh on Violin, very much anticipating a busy year ahead. ]]>

Formed in 1910, Reg Vardy Band have cemented a formidable reputation as the premier brass band in the North of England, and have won the Regional Championships more times than any other brass band in the country. They are consistently listed in the top 20 of the World Brass Band Rankings and recent contest successes include winning the 2017 French Open Brass Band Champions, and becoming the Doctor Martins Contest Champions for the fourth time. The NAS/UWT Riverside Band was formed in 1877 in the mining village of Pelton Fell. It has had various names over the years, but since 2008 has been sponsored by the National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers. Over the last 5 years the band has been a principal performer at the Durham International Brass Festival, and has performed regularly at Sage Gateshead, including a performance with British Sea Power. The band were the North of England Champion band in 2017, a title they also won in 2013, and have qualified for the national finals at the Royal Albert Hall 4 times in the last 7 years. Easington Colliery Band was founded in 1915, and since the colliery closure in 1993 the band has been mainly self-supporting, with Michael Watt Productions as the band&#8217;s main sponsor in recent years. The band is still based in Easington Colliery and play in the old wages office on the colliery site, and this is the last remaining colliery building still in use in the Durham Coalfield. Born into a musical family in County Durham, England, Joseph Cook started playing tuba at the age of 12 with his local secondary school wind band. Joseph was member of the National Youth Brass Band for 4 years, being Principal Tuba for 2 years and winner of the Harry Mortimer Solo Competition in 1997. He was also 2 times semi-finalist in the BBC Young Musician of the Year and the Shell London Symphony Orchestra Scholarship.

£32.50

Prefix: Boiler Shop presents

General Info: Doors: 7.30pm


Mavis Staples is living, breathing history. She is an alchemist of American music, having continuously crossed genre lines like no musician since Ray Charles. Weaving herself into the very fabric of gospel, soul, folk,pop, R&amp;B, blues, rock and hip hop, this iconic singer has seen and sung through so many changes, always rising up to meet every road. At the beginning of her eighth decade of singing truth, Mavis Staples has delivered “If All I Was Was Black” (ANTI- Records), ten songs about America today, where the present is filled with ghosts of the past. &#8220;Nothing has changed,&#8221; Mavis said in early August, just days before the world watched neo-Nazis march with swastika flags in Charlottesville, Virginia, as a young woman was murdered. &#8220;We are still in it.&#8221; “If All I Was Was Black” represents Mavis&#8217; third collaboration with songwriter and producer (and Wilco frontman) Jeff Tweedy. Their first partnership in 2010, “You Are Not Alone”, won a Grammy Award for Best Americana album. Their second effort together, “One True Vine”, was a Grammy nominee. But “If All I Was Was Black” marks the first time Tweedy has composed an entire album of original songs for Mavis&#8217; legendary voice and a nation she&#8217;s uniquely poised to address. Boiler Shop is delighted to welcome her to Newcastle on Friday 13 July 2018. Plus Support Benjamin Booker &#8220;Benjamin Booker makes retro music feel modern &#8230; on Witness’ acoustic and naked electric blues and soul, the opposing forces of a lush or refined landscape and Booker’s gravely voice work in concert.&#8221; Pitchfork Album Review, 8.1 &#8220;An urgent synthesis of blues, gospel and soul&#8230;with a raw and unforgiving candor that’s reminiscent of downtown New York punk.&#8221; Mic This event is at Boiler Shop (Stephenson Works), 20 South St, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 3PE. ]]>

Since forming 25 years ago, Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys have toured continuously and become torchbearers of American roots music. As a singer, songwriter, bandleader, and entertainer, Big Sandy has few contemporaries. With a dynamic live show, Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys at once acknowledge and celebrate the past while setting the stage for further exploration and interpretation of the musical forms they are most passionate about. Beloved by many, the band has released fourteen albums of undiluted, upbeat and soulful music pulled from honky-tonk, western swing, rockabilly, rock &amp; roll, rhythm &amp; blues, soul and doo-wop. Their latest album, &#8216;What A Dream It&#8217;s Been&#8217;, on Cow Island Music, is a collection of the band&#8217;s favorite original numbers &#8211; all acoustic, reinterpreted with fresh new arrangements, rhythms, and instrumentation. The band has toured constantly for the past two decades, playing over 3,000 live shows, which include performances at the Grand Ole Opry, opening for the likes of George Jones, Johnny Cash, Morrisey and The Monkees, along with several appearances on Late Night with Conan O&#8217;Brien and many national radio shows. www.bigsandy.net | Facebook | Twitter Charley Crockett Growing up with a single mother in San Benito, Texas, the hometown of Tejano star Freddy Fender was not easy for blues singer Charley Crockett. Hitchhiking across the country exposed Crockett to the street life at a young age, following in the footsteps of his relative, American folk hero Davy Crockett, who also lived a wild life on the American frontier. After train hopping across the country, singing on the streets for change in New Orleans’ French Quarter, busking in New York City and performing across Texas and Northern California, Crockett set off to travel the world and lived on the streets of Paris for nearly a year before searching for home in Spain, Morocco, and Northern Africa. www.charleycrockett.com | Facebook Save with SummerTyne Multibuy Buy tickets for two or more concerts and save £2, £3 or £4 off each ticket.

Kelly Willis Austin based “honky-tonk angel”, Kelly Willis commences her first solo UK tour to launch her brand new album “Back Being Blue”. Since her 1990 debut LP, “Well Travelled Love”, Kelly has populated her albums with a smart blend of twangy country, rollicking rockers and adventurous cover tunes. Back Being Blue is out May 18 on Premium Records/Thirty Tigers. &#8220;Willis steps into the solo spotlight with her seventh full-length project, an enchanting collection of self-penned tunes and impeccably chosen covers. Showcasing the jagged, vulnerable vocals of a honky-tonk angel who’s also freely dabbled in rockabilly, power pop, new wave and R&amp;B, it’s that last genre that informs the dazzling title tune.&#8221; Rolling Stone Country &#8220;Kelly Willis looks back to country music before Nashville embraced power ballads and cute happily-ever-after songs. Whether she was wishing for comfort, admitting to a bruised heart, yielding to illicit romance or trying to say goodbye, her voice was modest and true, illuminating the delicate tension and pain in every line.&#8221; – New York Times www.kellywillis.com | Facebook | Twitter Emily Barker Emily Barker’s latest album Sweet Kind of Blue was recorded at Sam Phillips Recording Service in Memphis with Grammy winning producer Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price) and an all-star cast of Memphis session players. The success of the album, with its seamless mix of soul, blues, country and folk influences, and the globe-trotting tours to support it helped land Emily the accolade of UK Artist of the Year at the recent UK Americana Awards held at Hackney Empire in London. Emily Barker is perhaps best known as the writer and performer of the award-winning theme to BBC crime drama Wallander starring Kenneth Branagh. She has released music as a solo artist as well as with various bands including The Red Clay Halo, Vena Portae and Applewood Road (with whom she released a remarkable album of original songs recorded live around a single microphone, which was dubbed “flawless” by The Sunday Times) and has written for film, including composing her first feature film soundtrack (for Jake Gavin’s lauded debut feature Hector starring Peter Mullan and Keith Allen).

Facebook | Twitter Striking Matches Simply stated, Striking Matches, made up of Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis, came to Nashville to play music. Sarah, a Philadelphia native and Justin, from Atlanta met when a professor at Belmont University paired them at random to play for a classroom full of guitar majors. Consequently, their first performance was the first time they had ever played together. The pair has been writing and performing ever since. Their music represent the culmination of two musicians with eclectic tastes and diverse influences which includes a wide range from Jerry Reed to The Beatles, John Mayer to Patsy Cline and back again. It becomes more obvious every day that they were born to play music together. Their debut self-titled EP was produced by Luke Wooten (Dierks Bentley, Dustin Lynch) and was all co-written by the duo. Their 2015 debut album Nothing But The Silence was produced by T Bone Burnett. Career highlights include their December 2012 debut on the Grand Ole Opry and placement of their song &#8220;When The Right One Comes Along&#8221; on ABC&#8217;s hit show Nashville. Their EP Shameless , produced by Kennedy Karate (Børns), was released in September 2017 and they are gearing up to release another EP “Retrograde” in February 2018 via Capitol Records. These releases are intended as a bridge between the two albums, an introduction to the new directions Striking Matches are pursuing while still retaining the bluesy, rootsy core and instrumental virtuosity of their debut. www.strikingmatches.com | Facebook | Twitter Sarah Darling Sarah Darling is an American country music singer and songwriter based out of Nashville, TN. She first made her name known in 2008 when she debuted the album, Every Monday Morning, released on June 16, 2009. A second album, Angels &amp; Devils, followed on February 15, 2011. In August 2012, her breakout single titled &#8220;Home to Me,&#8221; was released after being featured on SiriusXM&#8217;s The Highway.

Prefix: Great Exhibition of the North: Folk on the Tyne


Three of the finest folk musicians and singers from the North of England are presented by Alistair Anderson in this afternoon showcase. All performers have been teaching all week at Folkworks Summer Schools. Since setting up Folkworks in 1988 Alistair has worked with a diverse and exciting range of folk artists from across the world, this showcase presents just some of many artists Folkworks has worked with for the past 30 years. As a touring soloist, with no less than 37 tours of the USA, 5 trips to Australia and countless European tours to his credit, Alistair Anderson is internationally acknowledged as the master of the English Concertina and a fine exponent of the Northumbrian Pipes. He delights audiences with the lyrical slow airs and lively dance tunes of Northumberland and with his own compositions, which have grown out of his love of traditional music. Amy Thatcher is an accordionist and clog dancer based in the North East of England. Amy is a key member of several well known folk acts in the UK including Kathryn Tickell and The Side, The Shee, and the electronic folk super-group, The Monster Ceilidh Band. Her musical upbringing owes a lot to Stockport’s famous Fosbrook’s Folk Education Trust with whom she trained from the age of eight on accordion, fiddle, piano and clog dancing. During this time Amy was taught by, and recorded with, accordion virtuoso Murray Grainger. From 18 onwards she continued her musical education in Newcastle on the prestigious Folk and Traditional Music degree course. Andy May started to learn the pipes in the late eighties, having been introduced to the instrument by his dad. I learned to play from Roland Lofthouse and Adrian Schofield, and from studying the recordings of Billy Pigg and Tom Clough. Through the 90s he entered many piping competitions and studied music at the University of York with the pipes as his chosen instrument. Andy tours with Jez Lowe and the Bad Pennies, UK/Finnish/Danish ensemble Baltic Crossing, and the Andy May Trio. English violinist, singer and songwriter Nancy Kerr is one of the most celebrated folk musicians of her generation, and has to date won 6 Folk Awards from BBC Radio 2. Her 2016 album Instar examined the relationship between folk song and the environment and led to collaborations with contemporary nature writers Rob Cowen (Common Ground) and Helen Macdonald (H is for Hawk) as part of her curation at Kings Place, London. She has composed for commissions The Radio Ballads (BBC Radio 2), The Elizabethan Session, Sweet Liberties (Parliament) and Shake The Chains, and performs with Melrose Quartet, Martin Simpson and Andy Cutting and as part of Peter Bellamy’s folk opera The Transports. ]]>

Backbone of our Land. What does it mean to be Northern? Why do we live here and why do we stay here? A host of leading Northern poets and folk musicians have been asking these questions. “How did we get here, eh? We’re surprised to find ourselves on the brink of a seismic shift in our national identity but how did we get to this? When did we stop talking to each other? Let’s start talking now. _ We might not always see eye to eye, but we all care about this land and where we’re heading. Backbone of our Land explores what it means to be part of the landscape, finding out who we are through conversation and connections.”_ Led by Peter Brewis and Degna Stone, this premiere Folkworks commission of new music and spoken word features new work by Andrew McMillan and Kim Moore and performances by Peter Brewis, Bella Hardy, Sarah Hayes and Dan Rogers. This project was funded by Art50, a scheme commissioned by Sky Arts to explore the notion of British identity in the wake of Brexit. ]]>

Prefix: Great Exhibition of the North: Folk on the Tyne


The Wilson Family were very honoured to be the latest recipients to have been awarded the EFDSS Gold Badge Award in October 2017. The glorious, powerful, vocal harmony of The Wilson Family of Billingham, Teesside has rung out in folk clubs and festivals continuously for the last 40+ years. The Brothers sing Traditional and traditionally-orientated songs, with deep understanding, Joy and good humour. The Young&#8217;uns have cemented their reputation at the forefront of the English folk scene in the last few years. Having taken their uplifting voices, powerful songs, spine tingling harmonies and raucous humour to audiences across the UK and around the world, they won the title of ‘Best Group’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award in 2015 and 2016. While folk music may commonly and affectionately be defined as low culture, The Unthanks aspire to prove that the beauty and truth present in the oral history of the people, is anything but common. Using the traditional music of the North East of England as a starting point, the influence of Miles Davis, Steve Reich, Sufjan Stevens, Robert Wyatt, Antony &amp; The Johnsons, King Crimson and Tom Waits can be heard in the band’s ten albums to date. Their approach to storytelling makes easy bedfellows of polar opposites such as staunch traditionalism and sonic adventure, glacial minimalism and heartbreaking empathy. The Unthanks make Art Folk with a booming socially conscious heart, earning them an army of notable fans, including Martin Freeman, Elvis Costello, Colin Firth, Robert Wyatt, Mackenzie Crook, Ben Folds, Ryan Adams, Rosanne Cash, members of Portishead ]]>

£19.60 & £21.80 in advance. £24 on the door


Showcasing their latest album Sight of Day, an album celebrating life which abounds with huge tracks that lead the listener into territory never explored by the band before. Counted amongst the top 100 best prog bands of all time and winners of Best Live Concert and Best Female Vocalist 2014 (Olivia Sparnenn-Josh) in the Classic Rock Society awards, Mostly Autumn&#8217;s musical palette is diverse, they draw on influences from the golden age of rock, but have developed their own unique sound that both captures the essence of that era and yet looks forward into the future. Delighted to be invited to support Ritchie Blackmore&#8217;s Rainbow in 2016 and 2017, they have earned themselves a name for their outstanding live shows and have been described as &#8216;the best band you have never heard&#8217;. They have built a loyal and cult following since their first album sixteen years ago and in that time such luminaries as Steve Hackett, the late Richard Wright, the late Jon Lord and the BBC&#8217;s own Bob Harris are amongst their many fans. Mostly Autumn has also toured as an invited support act to Blackmore&#8217;s Night, Uriah Heep and Jethro Tull, as well as being special guests at Bryan Adam&#8217;s Murrayfield Stadium gig a few years ago. That alone should give some indication as to the caliber of the band. www.mostly-autumn.com | Facebook ]]>

£13.60


In the crowded scene of Tuareg guitarists, Mdou Moctar stands apart from his peers. Playing in the repertoire of desert guitar popularized by groups like Tinariwen and Bombino, Mdou is pushing the boundaries of the genre with a unique personal sound. With versatile compositions and genre defying albums, Mdou’s music has been an underground success with an international following, set on redefining the sound of the desert. Mdou Moctar hails from a small village in the Azawagh desert of Niger, a remote region steeped in religious tradition. As a child, he taught himself to play the a homemade guitars, cobbled together out of planks of wood. It was years later before he found a “real” guitar, teaching himself in secret. In an area where guitar music was all but prohibited, he quickly rose to the status of local celebrity amongst the village youth. In the past years, Tuareg rock music has gotten faster. There is a preference for this new style, both in the raucous weddings of Agadez and in Berlin rock clubs. The wavering guitar solos, rapid fire drums and heavy distortion has become characteristic of the contemporary sound. Mdou takes on this challenge, but with an ear towards tradition. Rooted in traditional, with borrowed polyrhythms of traditional « takamba » and lyrics sung in the style of old nomadic poets, his guitar playing is wild and unrelenting, equal parts nomadic bard and Eddie Van Halen. Mdou Moctar and his band have toured Europe and North America, playing sold out shows from small DIY rock clubs in Portland to New York City’s Lincoln Center. His music has been featured in the BBC, The Guardian, Pitchfork, New Yorker, L.A. Weekly, NPR, Rolling Stone, Les Inrocks, and his film continues to be screened at film festivals around the world. From underground star of Niger to international film star, Mdou Moctar has undoubtedly one of the quickest rises to success. ]]>

Clare Maree Bowen was born on an island in the middle of the Pacific and is somehow still not dead. Years before landing the role of Scarlett O&#8217;Connor on the CMT/HULU TV series Nashville, and launching her career as a singer / songwriter, little Clare Bowen was growing up in rural Australia, miles from the nearest city, writing down everything she felt, heard, saw and dreamed. &#8220;Music was my connection to the rest of the world,&#8221; she says. As a child who spent more time around animals than people, she often &#8220;didn’t do social very well&#8230; but music is the universal language. I felt no barrier there. I was brought up on my parents’ vinyl collection &#8211; everything from Paul Simon to Gilbert &amp; Sullivan. Vivaldi, to Elvis, to Dolly, to Springsteen, Edith Piaf and Etta James.” Clare resides in a rip in the fabric of reality, close to Nashville, Tennessee, with Brandon, a small army of rescued dragons, and the occasional unicorn. www.clarebowenofficial.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Fittingly titled, &#8216;One Drop of Truth,&#8217; the latest entry in The Wood Brothers evolution finds three musicians being true to themselves. At a point in their career where most artists would be looking to strategically position themselves for even greater commercial success, they instead turned to artistic expression in service of the muse. In chaotic times when honesty is in short supply and ulterior motives seem to always be at play, The Wood Brothers put faith in themselves and ultimately their audience by writing and recording a collection of songs that is honest and pure. As they sing on the album’s title track: “Rather die hungry / than feasting on lies / Give me one drop of truth / I cannot deny.” www.thewoodbros.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£12.50


With the release of his highly anticipated debut album Mr. Jukebox via Third Man Records, Joshua Hedley will embrace the role he was born to play: this generation&#8217;s classic country champion. An accomplished fiddle player, Hedley felt inexplicably drawn toward the instrument as a child. He got his hands on his own fiddle at age 8, and by 12, he was playing with middle-aged pickers at the VFW. At 19, he moved from his native Florida to Nashville, where he became an in-demand sideman at Robert&#8217;s Western World and other bars, and ultimately, a well-respected frontman. Armed with an easy croon and prodigious fiddle playing, he became known as the Mayor of Lower Broad. He hit the road to perform with artists including Jonny Fritz, Justin Townes Earle, and more, while the 2015 documentary Heartworn Highways Revisited featured Hedley prominently. Hedley didn&#8217;t start writing his own songs until he was about 28 years-old. So on the backend of his 20s, he finally started writing, eventually unlocking a flood of clarity and creativity. The heartbreaking, distilled, defiantly classic country that poured out of him became Mr. Jukebox, a salve and beacon for 60s honky-tonk devotees everywhere. When asked what he hopes listeners get out of Mr. Jukebox, Hedley doesn&#8217;t hesitate. &#8220;I just want people to remember they have feelings, and that they&#8217;re valid,&#8220; he says. &#8220;Not everything is Coors Light and tailgates. There are other aspects of life that aren&#8217;t so great that people experience. They&#8217;re part of life, part of what shapes people. And that&#8217;s worth noting.&#8220; www.joshuahedley.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Wednesday 12th September, 2018. 3pm - 4.30pm & 8pm - 10pm

£19.60

Prefix: Darlington Hippodrome and Wisecrack Productions present

Suffix: By Ed Waugh (Hadaway Harry, Mr Corvan's Music Hall, Sunday for Sammy)


Following last year&#8217;s highly acclaimed and hugely successful Mr Corvan&#8217;s Music Hall, top North East playwright Ed Waugh&#8217;s latest show is about Joe Wilson, the brilliant Tyneside-born singer/songwriter. Like Bob Dylan, Wilson was able to encapsulate an epic story in a song. His subject matter ranged from love, death and moving house to supporting workers on strike. In addition, he wasn&#8217;t afraid to tackle the horrors of domestic violence or drunkenness. His prose is a vibrant record of working class life on Victorian Tyneside, which are as relevant today as they were 150 years ago. Joe is best known today for the classic Keep Your Feet Still, Geordie Hinny, which was one of 360 songs he wrote in his brief life. Born in Stowell Street, Newcastle, on November 29, 1841, Joe was inspired when, as a young teenager, he saw Ned Corvan perform. Joe made his professional debut at Balmbras, Newcastle, in December 1864, and within a year, aged only 24, was the undisputed North East concert hall superstar. He was given the accolade &#8220;The Bard of Tyneside&#8221;. A teetotaller after he managed the Adelaide pub (today next to Manors Metro station) throughout 1872, Joe died of TB in February 1875 (in Railway Street, behind Newcastle Central Station). He was 33 years old. His memorial in Jesmond Old Cemetery, depicts a life cut tragically short. This must-see funny, tragic and informative play is based on the new book Gallowgate Lad: Joe Wilson&#8217;s Life &amp; Songs by Dave Harker, and will feature Joe&#8217;s words put to music by internationally renowned singer/songwriter Pete Scott. www.wisecrackproductions.co.uk ]]>

£13.60, £11.40


Wooden Shjips, long-time leaders of the contemporary psychedelic movement, expand their sound with V. The quartet of Omar Ahsanuddin, Dusty Jermier, Nash Whalen and Ripley Johnson augment their already rich sound with laid back, classic summer songs. The songs were written during the summer of 2017 by singer and guitarist Ripley Johnson as an antidote to the pervasive anxiety both political and natural. The band’s members collectively share a love of classic rock from the Velvet Underground to Neil Young, as well as more overt love of the San Francisco scene of the 60’s. This commonality in their formative musical years binds them even as they live in different cities. V. finds Wooden Shjips embracing the emotions behind those sounds; peaceful defiance and opposition, while creating a sound and counter narrative to today’s hostilities that is wholly their own. www.woodenshjips.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Over the stuttering click and kick of a primitive drum box and a wash of ebbing, flowing sound, a voice invites the listener to join his nocturnal chorus. &#8220;C&#8217;mon now midnight children, sing a dark harmony / lay it down midnight people, create your own alchemy&#8220; Like a crack of light glimpsed from behind a closed door in the black of night, it is a weird and compelling proposition, the first track (entitled Save Me) in the remarkable sequence of songs that forms With Animals. With Animals is the second album by Mark Lanegan and Duke Garwood, two artists who&#8217;ve spent their careers stalking the peripheries and mapping sounds of the small hours. The record&#8217;s twelve songs are spectral and sinewy, often defined by the spaces in between the sounds. A ghost&#8217;s whistle weaves itself around a pulsing single note on Lonesome Infidel; Feast to Famine&#8217;s hard luck story floats above a guitar part so strung out and washed with distortion it&#8217;s become barely recognisable. It&#8217;s soul music for anyone who&#8217;s long since left the crossroads. Duke Garwood | Mark Lanegan ]]>

Barclay James Harvest are one of the world&#8217;s most successful progressive rock bands. Formed in 1966, the band originally featured John Lees, Les Holroyd, Stuart &#8220;Wooly&#8221; Wolstenholme and Mel Pritchard. Their eponymously titled debut album was released in 1970 on EMI. The band released three more albums with the label &#8211; &#8216;Once Again&#8217;, &#8216;Barclay James Harvest and Other Short Stories&#8217; and &#8216;Baby James Harvest&#8217; &#8211; before signing to Polydor in 1974. 1974&#8217;s &#8216;Everyone is Everybody Else&#8217; is seen as the band&#8217;s artistic high point. It was voted into Radio Caroline&#8217;s Top 100 albums of all time. John Peel invited the band to record a session for BBC Radio One at this time also. Further albums &#8211; &#8216;Time Honoured Ghosts&#8217;, &#8216;Octoberon&#8217; and &#8216;Gone to Earth&#8217; &#8211; took the band to even greater popularity. Barclay James Harvest played to 250,000 people in Berlin on 30 August 1980 and then to 170,000 people in East Berlin in 1987. After &#8220;Wooly&#8221; Wolstenholme left in 1980 the band continued as a three piece throughout the 1980&#8217;s. Sadly Mel Pritchard and &#8220;Wooly&#8221; Wolstenholme passed away in the 2000&#8217;s.

Treating fans to many favourite Genesis and Hackett numbers, this time Steve and his band will be accompanied by a 41-piece orchestra. The decision to undertake this tour was cemented following the critical success of last year’s one-off US performance of the Genesis Revisited music with his band and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by the charismatic Bradley Thachuk. It went down a storm with the audience and sounded amazing, with the orchestra adding even more texture and colour to these classic tracks, prompting Steve to want to perform more shows in this way. Such was the gusto and verve brought to the performance by conductor, Bradley Thachuk that he will fly over to the UK to conduct the October shows. This show promises to be a transcendent experience! Steve explains, &#8220;I always hoped that the Genesis music would one day involve an orchestra and I&#8217;m proud to say I&#8217;ll now be able to make that dream a reality on my next British tour, involving my own extraordinary rock band alongside a full-sized orchestra.&#8221; The show will feature some of Genesis’ best-loved songs, including Supper’s Ready, Dancing with the Moonlit Knight, Firth of Fifth and more.

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. ]]>

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.

£21.80


It&#8217;s hard to do justice in words to the influence of Terry Riley on so much adventurous music that has emerged over the past half century. Take his legendary In C, a simple piece of musical genius that still resonates as loudly in impact today and perhaps is achieving more widespread influence than ever currently since its first recorded appearance in 1968. Add in his sublime minimalist keyboard recordings such as Shri Camel and A Rainbow In Curved Air, his early tape work, his collaborations with Pandit Pran Nath, John Cale, La Monte Young – a huge favourite on the TUSK team, a huge influence on our listening and so much of the music we love. So it is fitting, in the year that TUSK makes the move to expand its reach into Sage Gateshead’s Hall One, that it is Terry Riley that takes us there. Terry will perform in a duo with his son Gyan, who has a growing discography of his own that includes releases on labels such as John Zorn’s Tzadik and has worked with Zakir Hussian, Dawn Upshaw and many others. Hailing from Morocco’s Atlantic coast, Maâlem Houssam Gania is the youngest son of the late, revered Maâlem Mahmoud Gania and has grown up entrenched in the Gnawa culture of North Africa, playing the guimbri and singing from the Gnawa songbook since his earliest days. In great demand in his home country for his performances at the Lila trance ceremonies, where people gather to dance, to commune with the spirits and be healed of their ailments, Houssam’s renown has spread to this continent of late with select appearances at European festivals and even collaborations with UK producer James Holden. At TUSK, Houssam will be performing an intimate set of deep and traditional Gnawa music with a small group accompanying on chorus and percussion. Terry Riley &amp; Gyan Riley plus plus Maalem Houssam Gania &amp; The Gnawa of Essaouira is also available as part of the TUSK Festival 2018 Weekend Pass ]]>

As a solo artist Tom had further solo hits in 1983 with War Baby and Atmospherics: Listen To The Radio, and co-wrote songs with Peter Gabriel, Elton John and Dan Hartman. His 14th studio album Only The Now was released in 2015 featuring guests such as Billy Bragg, John Grant and Ian McKellen.

£16.40


Lankum are one of the most talked about bands to come out of Ireland in decades. They&#8217;re a Dublin four-piece who combine distinctive four-part vocal harmonies with arrangements of uilleann pipes, concertina, 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. The band comprises of brothers Ian and Daragh Lynch along with Cormac MacDiarmada and Radie Peat. When not on tour Ian lectures in Irish Folklore and musical traditions in University College Dublin, while Cormac and Radie grew up as champion traditional players, on the fiddle and concertina, respectively. Yet Lankum are not purely trad themselves, in the same way The Pogues were more urban music. Rough-hewn and raw, they&#8217;re the most exciting thing in Dublin right now. The band was originally formed by brothers Ian and Daragh Lynch in the early 2000&#8217;s, and has since progressed through a number of incarnations, culminating in the four-piece group playing today. The release of their album &#8216;Cold Old Fire&#8217; and a subsequent appearance on the BBC television programme, &#8216;Later&#8230; with Jools Holland&#8217; cemented their reputation as a band that successfully crosses genres. Although an acoustic group whose repertoire is fundamentally based on traditional song, influenced by legends such as Frank Harte, Planxty, The Dubliners and the Watersons, subtle traces of the group&#8217;s collective influences can be detected, ranging from American old-timey music to krautrock and drone. Lankum are busy breathing new life into old music. lankumdublin.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£27.30


Written largely in New York between Summer 2016 and Winter 2017, Josh Tillman’s fourth Father John Misty LP, God’s Favorite Customer, reflects on the experience of being caught between the vertigo of heartbreak and the manic throes of freedom. God’s Favorite Customerreveals a bittersweetness and directness in Tillman’s songwriting, without sacrificing any of his wit or taste for the absurd. From “Mr. Tillman,” where he trains his lens on his own misadventure, to the cavernous pain of estrangement in “Please Don’tDie,” Tillman plays with perspective throughout to alternatingly hilarious and devastating effect. “We’re Only People (And There’s Not Much Anyone Can Do About That)” is a meditation on our inner lives and the limitations we experiencein our attempts to give and receive love. It stands in solidarity with the title track, which examines the ironic relationship between forgiveness and sin. Together, these are songs that demand to know either real love or what comes after, and as the album progresses, that entreaty leads to discovering the latter’s true stakes. &#8220;Hugely impressive… A great deal of the album&#8217;s power comes from the way the bleakness of the lyrics is offset by the lusciousness of the melodies and the comforting familiarity of the sound, with its beautifully subtle orchestrations.&#8221; The Guardian &#8211; 5 Stars God’s Favorite Customer was produced by Tillman and recorded with Jonathan Rado, Dave Cerminara, and Trevor Spencer. The album features contributions from Haxan Cloak, Natalie Mering of Weyes Blood, longtime collaborator Jonathan Wilson, and members of Misty’s touring band. www.fatherjohnmisty.com | Facebook | Spotify ]]>

Lord Huron was created by Los Angeles-based Ben Schneider. Born and raised in Michigan, Schneider drew inspiration from the Great Lakes, which were carved by glaciers 14,000 years ago, and his music stands in awe and wonder of the natural world. After writing and recording two independent EPs (Into the Sun and Mighty) on his own, demand grew for Lord Huron to perform live. Schneider recruited friends Mark Barry (percussion), Miguel Briseño (bass) and Tom Renaud (guitar). Having first played music together at the tender age of 12, the group reunited and quickly hit their stride, transforming the project into a full-fledged band. Lord Huron signed with IAMSOUND, and the label released 2012&#8217;s Lonesome Dreams, and Strange Trails in 2015. Strange Trails included the song, &#8220;The Night We Met,&#8221; which was featured in the Netflix original series &#8220;13 Reasons Why.&#8221; The series and song both became hits, and &#8220;The Night We Met&#8221; was certified platinum in January of 2018. This year also marks the beginning of a unique alliance between Whispering Pines and Republic Records, who will partner in the release of Vide Noir. Lord Huron has toured extensively in North America and Europe, earning rave reviews and performing for sold-out crowds at some of the world&#8217;s most prestigious venues. The band has appeared at a wide range of music festivals including Lollapalooza, Coachella, Bonnaroo and Newport Folk Festival. www.lordhuron.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

At seventeen, Roddy Frame and his band Aztec Camera debuted on Glasgow’s legendary Postcard Records, releasing two singles for the label before moving on to Rough Trade where the unique acoustic sound of their debut album High Land Hard Rain was responsible for inspiring a whole generation of indie bands. Aztec Camera´s career involved an array of intriguing collaborations – from recordings with legendary R&amp;B producer Tommy Lipuma and Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto to a duet with The Clash&#8217;s Mick Jones on ‘Good Morning Britain’ In 2002 Frame released the solo album Surf, a landmark album of new compositions recorded in single takes, accompanied only by his acoustic guitar. The record was a massive critical success; most reviews agreeing on Surf being a seminal piece of work by a voice still underrated by the general public. It was followed by a string of dates at Soho´s legendary jazz club Ronnie Scott´s and the acclaimed follow up album Western Skies in 2006. Following a long hiatus, broken only by a warmly received tour of the UK in 2011, and by a sell-out string of prestigious shows in the UK to celebrate the 30th anniversary of High Land Hard Rain, Roddy was inspired to return to recording. Seven Dials, the result, received a rapturous reception and Roddy celebrated it’s release with a UK and European tour.

£32.70 & £29.40


Singer, songwriter and saxophonist Curtis Stigers has been bringing those worlds together in his own music for the last three decades (along with touches of nearly every other genre one could call to mind), which makes him an ideal candidate to reinterpret Ol’ Blue Eyes’ cherished repertoire for modern ears. On his twelfth album and ninth release for Concord Records, One More for the Road, Stigers captures the rare alchemy of hipness, elegance, playfulness and feeling that made Sinatra’s renditions of these songs immortal while adding his own unique twist. On One More for the Road, Stigers finds his own version of that elusive Sinatra-Basie chemistry with the virtuosic and ebulliently swinging musicians of the Danish Radio Big Band. Recorded in the band’s headquarters, the acoustic marvel that is the DR Koncerthuset in Copenhagen, the bristling live recording features the DRBB playing vibrant takes based on the original Nelson Riddle and Billy May arrangements, which can’t help but spark inspired vocal performances from Stigers. www.curtisstigers.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

General Info: Ticket purchases by audience contacts of Newcastle Choral Society (NCS) Please use the NCS price types when booking (NCS Standard, NCS Senior and NCS 16 & under)


The poetry of Wilfred Owen, sung by Mark Padmore and Roderick Williams, is woven throughout this piece, powerfully giving voice to those who suffer in war. These distinguished soloists, in demand throughout the world, are accompanied by a chamber orchestra, conducted by Xenophon Kelsey MBE. Cleveland Philharmonic Choir and guest choirs Newcastle Choral Society and Northern Spirit Singers form a chorus over 200 strong. Together with soprano soloist Rachel Nicholls, they sing words from the Latin Requiem Mass, set in wonderfully imaginative ways. They are partnered by the Mowbray Orchestra conducted by John Forsyth MBE. High above the massed choirs, and accompanied by a chamber organ, is a choir of forty boys and girls from Cleveland Philharmonic Junior Choir, Durham Cathedral choristers and the choir of St Peter’s Church, Stockton-on-Tees. Daniel Cook, Master of the Choristers at Durham Cathedral, is their conductor. Theirs is a distant, mystic sound-world. The War Requiem was written for the consecration of the new Coventry Cathedral in May 1962, the original mediaeval building having been destroyed in a bombing raid in November 1940. In a protest against violence and cruelty, Britten used all his resources to create a work that is both awe-inspiring yet intensely personal. It speaks to everyone – new and experienced listeners alike – and allows an opportunity for reflection on the eve of the centenary of the Armistice that ended the First World War.

After a comeback in the early 2000&#8217;s, which resulted in the well-received albums &#8216;Focus 8&#8217; and &#8216;Focus 9&#8217;, the band regrouped with a fantastic new line-up. Along with Thijs van Leer on vocals, flute and keyboards, back on the drums is famed Focus drummer Pierre van der Linden, who joined the group on their second album &#8216;Moving Waves&#8217; in 1972. Internationally renowned for his rhythmic skills, Pierre remains a defining factor in the Focus sound. Guitarist Menno Gootjes, who participated in Focus at an earlier stage, and acclaimed bass player Udo Pannekeet, complete the band&#8217;s current line-up. Recently, Focus&#8217;s biggest hit &#8220;Hocus Pocus&#8221; was used in a 4-minute Nike commercial before the World Cup broadcast. Focus music can be regularly heard on Top Gear and Saxondale on TV in the UK. A new Focus era has arrived! There is a rejuvenated passion amongst the band as it enters the studio to record Focus 11 and prepares to go out on the road again for a World Tour, in support of the new album, and as it builds up to its 50th Anniversary.

£19.60


Fresh from their critically acclaimed, infinitely-long and decidedly non-linear soundtrack to the universe-sized No Man&#8217;s Sky video game, and as active contributors to the burgeoning live-coding and &#8216;algorave&#8217; scenes, with Decomposition Theory, 65daysofstatic are once again refusing to be easily categorised. Inspired by the &#8216;show us your screens&#8217; attitude of live coders, their Decomposition Theory A/V show uses generative visuals to reveal the inner workings of 65&#8217;s musical algorithms. The code flashes by, logging every musical event as the band curate and sculpt the generative output in realtime. The musical process, not the band, is placed front and centre. Decomposition Theory is 65&#8217;s effort to imagine a space where music no longer has to take the shapes it is so often coerced into taking. In their own words: &#8216;Why are we doing this? No doubt, 65 are a long way from the frontline in any kind of struggle against capitalism and the abyss of a future it&#8217;s driving us toward. But perhaps there&#8217;s a minor supporting role in trying to imagine better futures. We are not railing against recorded music or albums or regular live shows, or what it can mean to be a band. However, these are all commodified forms. Almost all the ways anyone can relate to music these days are mediated through capital. Because we exist in relation to capital. We&#8217;re all drowning in it. It&#8217;s almost impossible to think outside of it. And so Decomposition Theory is some small effort to imagine a space where music is no longer shaped in commodity forms, and a live show doesn&#8217;t emphasise the ritual of performance. We are un-songing our songs and un-performing on stage.&#8216; This is ambitious, utopian thinking from a band at the top of its game. Website | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Following the release of his critically lauded new album Hearts That Strain last year, Jake Bugg hits the road this November for a string of acoustic headline shows and festival headline slots. The shows continue Jake’s Hearts That Strain tour, a series of solo acoustic shows. This stripped back presentation allows the power of Jake’s songwriting to shine through in a live setting, attracting a glowing 4* review from The Times. The intensity and intimacy of the tour is captured perfectly in the video for latest single In The Event Of My Demise Hearts That Strain saw Jake work with the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach (who co-wrote and recorded In The Event Of My Demise) and Grammy Award winning producers David Ferguson and Matt Sweeney in Nashville, while recording with some of the best players in the history of popular music. The result was a sublime, pensive album belying Bugg’s 23 years, with reviews for the record nothing short of revelatory; The Times said in their 4* review that Jake ‘sounds better than ever’, The Guardian that he is ‘Glenn Campbell re-incarnated’ and The Daily Mail, The I and The Sun giving it glowing write ups in their 4* reviews. www.jakebugg.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Among the new songs is &#8216;Scapa Flow 1919&#8217; written for the BBC Radio Ballads series around the experience of the stranded German sailors leading up to the scuttling of the Grand Fleet at the end of WW1. As always with Lau there&#8217;s plenty of progression on a purely sonic level too. Their new music continues to explore the marriage of acoustic and electronic sources and the arrangements continue down the path of intertwining instrumental music and song. Lau is a trio that put a lot of thought into the live experience and presentation, something anyone who shared in Lau&#8217;s acclaimed Decade tour will know, they have fresh theatrical ideas for Lau&#8217;s 2018-2019 tour. www.lau-music.co.uk | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£13.60


He&#8217;s a self-described &#8220;street kid&#8221; from the Bronx who bailed on college and big city life for a cold-water cabin in Virginia in the 1970s. His mission? To soak up the passion that was dramatically upending his parent&#8217;s life plan for him &#8211; authentic Appalachian mountain music &#8211; at the feet of its legendary pioneers, old masters who are now long gone. Today, Bruce Molsky is one of the most revered &#8220;multi-hyphenated career&#8221; ambassadors for America&#8217;s old-time mountain music. For decades, he&#8217;s been a globetrotting performer, ethnomusicologist and educator, a recording artist with an expansive discography including seven solo albums, well over a dozen collaborations and two Grammy-nominations. &#8220;Bruce Molsky is one of those great players who &#8216;gets it&#8217;: has all the links to the past but is happy not to be chained to it.&#8221; Mark Knopfler He&#8217;s also the classic &#8220;musician&#8217;s musician&#8221; &#8211; a man who&#8217;s received high praise from diverse fans and collaborators like Linda Ronstadt, Mark Knopfler, Celtic giants Donal Lunny and Andy Irvine, jazzer Bill Frisell and dobro master Jerry Douglas, a true country gentleman by way of the Big Apple aptly dubbed &#8220;the Rembrandt of Appalachian fiddlers&#8221; by virtuoso violinist and sometimes bandmate Darol Anger. &#8220;Molsky is easily one of the nation&#8217;s most talented fiddlers&#8230;he transports you &#8230; geographically, historically, and most of all emotionally.&#8221; Mother Jones Molsky digs deep to transport audiences to another time and place, with his authentic feel for and the unearthing of almost-forgotten rarities from the Southern Appalachian songbook. Molsky seduces audiences with a combination of rhythmic and melodic virtuosity and relaxed conversational wit &#8211; a uniquely humanistic, downhome approach that can make Carnegie Hall feel like a front porch or intimate jam session. &#8220;It is no exaggeration to say that Bruce Molsky is one of the greatest American fiddlers of all time. His playing is mesmerizing and transporting, and best experienced live.&#8221; WBUR (Boston NPR) In addition to his many live performances as a solo and with Molsky&#8217;s Mountain Drifters, Bruce will be kept away from his home in Beacon, New York, by his work as a Visiting Scholar at the old American Roots Music Program at the Boston&#8217;s Berklee College of Music, and through fiddling workshops and summer music camps he conducts for devotees here and abroad. www.brucemolsky.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Famously down to earth, for over twenty years Kate’s engaging personality and sharp Yorkshire wit have further endeared her to concert goers everywhere. And it is in her special Christmas concerts that all these elements combine to exquisite effect when performing a selection of traditional Yorkshire Carols and Christmas songs together with her intuitive band and a sublime brass quintet. After fifteen years of enchanting audiences up and down the land, Kate&#8217;s Christmas tour &#8211; captured on her 2013 Live At Christmas concert DVD &#8211; has for many, become as much a part of the festivities as Christmas pudding itself! Warm and inviting, spicy and sparkly she and her marvellous band &#8211; joined as ever by a sublime brass quintet &#8211; embody the sounds and joyous spirit of the best Christmases ever! Kate&#8217;s band of merry musicians (including the fabulous brass quintet) this December will comprise of; Damien O&#8217;Kane guitar, tenor guitar and banjo Steven Byrnes bouzouki, guitar and tenor guitar Nick Cooke diatonic accordion Duncan Lyall double bass Josh Clark percussion The key word here is, of course, &#8216;joy&#8217;. For, with her Christmas concerts, Kate is embracing and sharing a local South Yorkshire tradition of which she&#8217;s been a part ever since she was a child. For over two hundred years from late November to New Year&#8217;s Day on Sunday lunchtimes the good folk of South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire have flocked to their local public houses to sing their own, unique variations of familiar carols that, as Kate says, &#8216;were kicked out of churches during the Victorian era for being too happy!&#8217; (And we might add too exuberant!) This festive tour will feature tracks from Kate&#8217;s 2017 Christmas album Angels and Men, celebrating this marvellous Yorkshire-inspired tradition. Of course Kate has a treasure trove of Christmas songs and carols to delight the audience drawn from her four festive albums; Sweet Bells, While Mortals Sleep, The Frost is All Over and her most recent album Angels and Men. www.katerusby.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

The stirring, performance-based set features a stunning line-up, with Paul on keyboards and guitar; his vastly experienced colleague Jeremy Meek on bass; and two hugely renowned players completing the core line-up, Robbie McIntosh (Paul McCartney, Pretenders, Norah Jones, John Mayer et al) on lead guitar and Steve Gadd, universally acknowledged as one of the top musicians in the world, on drums. These Days is the follow-up to 2016&#8217;s Soul Shadows, which featured such new favourites as Keep On Lovin&#8217; You and Let Me Love Again to add to a solo songbook including Satisfy My Soul, Eyes Of Blue, Good Feelin&#8217; About It and That&#8217;s All That Matters To Me. Paul&#8217;s remarkable history has also embraced his time with such bands as Ace, Squeeze and Mike + the Mechanics, as the voice of staples like How Long, Tempted, &#8216;The Living Years and Over My Shoulder. He&#8217;s been equally in demand as a vocalist and instrumentalist for many years, with such names as Elton John, the Eagles, Diana Ross, Nick Lowe, Roxy Music, the Smiths and countless others. In 2013, Paul was hand-picked by Eric Clapton as a member of his band and continues to fill the role with distinction. After his latest, acclaimed UK tour early in 2018, which included his latest headliner at the London Palladium, Carrack plays five dates in Holland in October ahead of yet another packed British itinerary in early 2019. www.paulcarrack.net | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Collabro are the world’s most successful Musical Theatre group. In 2014 they met for their first rehearsal above a pub in London and just a month later went on to rouse the whole of Hammersmith Apollo into a standing ovation during their first ever public performance of Stars for the Britain’s Got Talent judges. Having triumphed in their Semi-Final heat with over 63% of the votes, they then won the overall competition with one of the biggest majorities ever. This subsequently led to them joining Simon Cowell’s label Syco, and hence becoming label-mates with the likes of One Direction, Little Mix, Susan Boyle and Il Divo. In the three years since the competition, Collabro have released a Number 1 debut album Stars, followed by Act Two which peaked at Number 2 in the charts in the summer of 2015. They have performed at the Royal Variety Performance; twice on Britain’s Got Talent (most recently the 10-year Grand Final compilation of past contestants – having been voted ‘The Nation’s Favourite BGT Winner’ in a national poll) and are now enormously successful internationally. Notably, they have performed for over 30 million people in Japan on Music Station on two separate occasions – receiving a Gold Disc for Best International Artist alongside Sam Smith and Meghan Trainor. They have also completed two tours of America and signed a major US record deal. The boys performed to 7 million people at Soccer Aid 2016 to critical praise and garnered excellent press reviews for their first performance as a four piece followed by a performance at the 2016 BBC Proms in the Park. A Summer Tour supporting the legendary Cliff Richard preceded their own sell-out 29 date Headline Tour of the UK at the end of 2017. March 2017 saw the release of their highly anticipated third studio album, Home a collection of stage classics, fan favourites and also their first original song Lighthouse, reaching Number 7 in the UK Album Chart. This record is receiving exceptional critical reviews. A sold out Tour of Asia; a Special Guest slot on Barry Manilow’s UK Tour and a forthcoming album in 2018 closely followed by a 2019 51-date UK tour of their own in the pipeline further affirms Collabro’s position as the most successful Musical Theatre recording group in the world. www.officialcollabro.com | Facebook | Twitter VIP Packages: Collabro Diamond VIP Front Row Package &#8211; £134 A front row seated ticket is included in this package Meet the members of Collabro and have your photo taken with them pre-show Receive a personalised signed photo of the group Collect a VIP gift chosen by Collabro Obtain a tour specific Diamond VIP Package laminate Entry into a prize draw to win a box for the Royal Albert Hall show* Collabro Gold VIP Great Seat Package &#8211; £104 A top price seated ticket is included in this package Meet the members of Collabro and have your photo taken with them pre-show Receive a pre-signed photo of the group Collect a VIP gift chosen by Collabro Obtain a tour specific Gold VIP Package laminate Entry into a prize draw to win a box for the Royal Albert Hall show* ]]>
