<![CDATA[Ian Siegal Band plus special guests Dawn Brothers]]> Sage Two 0.00000000 0.00000000 For 2018 blues supremo Ian Siegal tours a new album of original songs with his young band of ace musicians.

£17.40 & £15.30 (price when buying in advance)


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

Westlife had fourteen chart topping singles and forty-four million sales. Their career, Shane says, “fulfilled all of our dreams 1000 times over.” www.shanefilan.com | Facebook | Twitter Meet &amp; Greet upgrades are available via Ticketmaster.

Platinum-selling and Juno Award-winning Canadian five-piece Walk Off The Earth have announced the European leg of their 2018 World Tour, which marks the band&#8217;s first shows in the U.K. since 2016. &#8220;Touring is part of the lifeblood of this band,&#8221; said Gianni Nicassio. &#8220;We love to pack it up and hit the road. There&#8217;s nothing like performing live. We are so excited to visit so many new places throughout Europe and I can&#8217;t wait to drop our new show on our WOTElings.&#8221; The Juno Award-winning band most recently released their single, &#8220;NOMAD,&#8221; a buoyant and provocative love song that once again delivers on the wide-ranging style the band&#8217;s audiences have grown accustomed to. This follows the releases of the highly successful singles Fire In My Soul (which has since been certified Gold) and Taekwondo (which was also released as an EP &amp; short film). Also, just in time for the holidays, the band released Holiday Beard Ballads, Vol. 1, which features band member Mike &#8220;Beard Guy&#8221; Taylor&#8217;s piano performances of holiday classics. Walk Off The Earth is an unconventional, multi-talented five-piece musical phenomenon that has taken the world by storm. Based in Burlington, Ontario, their brilliant five-people-playing-one-guitar interpretation of Gotye&#8217;s &#8220;Somebody That I Used To Know&#8221; exploded on YouTube garnering well over 35 million views in less than 2 weeks. Their YouTube channel has over 2.8 million subscribers, and their recent cover of &#8220;Shape of You&#8221; by Ed Sheeran has been viewed more than 11 million times. The band also has an immense social media following, with almost 3 million Facebook likes.

<![CDATA[Don McLean plus Jarrod Dickenson]]> Sage One 0.00000000 0.00000000 With over 40 gold and platinum records worldwide, Don McLean is one of America’s most beloved country artists.

£46.30, £40.90 & £32.20


With over 40 gold and platinum records worldwide, Don McLean is one of America’s most beloved country artists. ‘Botanical Gardens’, his 19th studio album and first in 8 years, is arguably one of Don’s most reflective to date, as he puts it, “The inspiration for the project started years ago when I would walk in the beautiful gardens in Sydney Australia near the Opera House. I would dream young dreams and it was a comfort and an inspiration. I was always young inside, like we all are, and I felt it again there.” Further reflecting on the record, Don says, “the whole album really revolves around the title song. Later on I realized that the gardens are really a metaphorical heaven, and there’s a kind of death and rebirth.” Intimacy can be found at the heart of this record, with Don penning personal numbers looking back on a life well lived, as well as his observations on youth and love. Recording at Watershed Studios in Nashville also allowed a different kind of intimacy for Don and his band, as they were made to “play close and feel the music”, resulting in a raw, yet tight sound throughout. Don proves his prowess at writing timeless sounding songs once again, as the album weaves country, Americana, folk, and boot stomping rock in this release. In nearly 50 years on the scene, Don’s songs have become a staple in Americana music. His music has been performed by artists as diverse as Elvis Presley, Madonna, Fred Astaire, Chet Atkins, Weird Al Yankovick, George Michael, Josh Groban, Coolio and Ed Sheeran and his biggest hit ‘American Pie’ was recognised with high honours by being inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2003. Don famously only uses Martin guitars. He has more than 40 Martin guitars and in the year 2000, the Martin Guitar Company honoured Don McLean with his own limited edition signature guitar, the D40DM.

Seun Kuti, the youngest son of the Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti, is as incensed by injustice and inspired by greatness as his father ever was. Now, with his mighty new album Last Revolutionary, the Lagos-based scion honours the revolutionaries who&#8217;ve gone before and rallies the torchbearers to come. &#8220;Last Revolutionary is a true reflection of my political and social beliefs,&#8221; says the singer, bandleader and musician. &#8220;More than ever I am convinced of the mission and purpose of our music,&#8221; continues Kuti, newly signed to the progressive UK-based label, Strut. &#8220;Here I&#8217;m giving honour to my parents and to every revolutionary who has made a difference, many of them from before I was born.&#8221; An intensive spate of touring has reinvigorated an act whose every show includes one or more Fela originals, as adrenalised as they ever were. Long-players whose funky horns, kicking beats, stirring chants and call-and-response hooks are lent contemporary resonance by new sonic influences and the charismatic presence of Seun. The boy who first appeared onstage with his father aged eight (at the Harlem Apollo) has this wowed festivals including Glastonbury and Roskild, sending critics into raptures. Twitter | Facebook ]]>

£24.50

General Info: Please note this show will now start at 7pm. (Doors 6.30pm)


Amanda Palmer is returning to the U.K. for an intimate limited engagement run of old blighty’s smaller cities. This is her first U.K. music tour since her last official album release, 2012’s critically acclaimed and Kickstarter-funded “Theatre is Evil.” &#8220;A fearless one-woman creative typhoon.&#8221; The Guardian &#8220;I’m still working on and honing material for a new solo piano record, and it’s an incredibly personal piano mess of birth and death and dark humor. Playing these songs for audiences is giving me the roadmap about how to record them, and I’ve always wanted to explore the deeper U.K. cities. Since Neil (Gaiman, Palmer’s husband) and I are basing ourselves in London this spring while he works on Good Omens for the BBC, this is the time.&#8221; Palmer has taken her crowd-funding relationship with her audience one step further than Kickstarter and, since 2015, has been using the subscription membership site Patreon.com to fund her work, studio time, staff and ongoing cost of living. Around 11,000 people currently fund each of Palmer’s demos, videos and other projects. &#8220;I didn’t know what having patrons was going to be like, but they’ve actually become part and parcel of my process. The best song of this new collection was written in response to a boatload of blog comments from my patrons. It’s an inspiring way to work, it’s like having a massive family bar on the first floor of my house. I’m working in semipublic, and that’s actually getting the best out of me, because I don’t like working alone, even when I’m writing a solo record.&#8221; &#8216;An Evening With Amanda Palmer&#8217; will see Palmer alone on stage, performing everything from solo and Dresden Dolls’?favorites?to unreleased?new material on both grand piano and ukulele. Palmer takes pride in abandoning setlists and taking audience request, and responding to current events; audiences?filling these theaters can expect usual no-holds-barred mix of spontaneity, humor and confession. Comedian Andrew O’Neill will be supporting Palmer at all shows. amandapalmer.net | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Mary Chapin Carpenter&#8217;s anticipated new album, &#8216;Sometimes Just The Sky&#8217;, will be released March 30 via Thirty Tigers. A celebration of her acclaimed 30-year recording career, the landmark record features new versions of some of Carpenter’s most beloved songs as well as one newly written song, which became the title track. “HEROES AND HEROINES” Listen Here Produced by Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Paul McCartney, Ray LaMontagne), the 13-track album was recorded entirely live at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios outside Bath, England. Joined by long-time collaborator Duke Levine on guitar and a handpicked band of Johns’ favourite musicians, Carpenter reimagined one song from each of her twelve studio albums along with &#8220;Sometimes Just The Sky.&#8221; On the album title and newest song Carpenter says, &#8220;I read a beautiful interview with Patti Smith in which she said that you don’t have to look far or wide, and it doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive or madness in order to find things to soothe you in life, or to be happy about. Sometimes just the sky makes everything fall into perspective.&#8221; Special guest on the shows will be Emily Barker, winner of the UK Artist of the Year award at the recent UK Americana Awards. Over the course of her acclaimed career, Carpenter has sold over 14 million records. With hits like “Passionate Kisses” and “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her,” she has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations), two CMA awards, two Academy of Country Music awards and is one of only fifteen female members of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Most recently, in 2016, Carpenter released The Things That We Are Made Of. Produced by Grammy Award winning producer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton), the album features eleven new songs and was released to overwhelming critical praise. The Associated Press called it, “…an evocative collection of songs,” while The HuffPost declared, “…Carpenter is now at the height of her musical career, painting a compelling, relevant piece of art tinged with mixed feelings of grief and joy, all without preaching or darkening our minds with sadness.” marychapin-carpenter.squarespace.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£19.60


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

For two decades, Gretchen Peters has been one of Nashville&#8217;s most beloved and respected artists. &#8220;If Peters never delivers another tune as achingly beautiful as &#8216;On A Bus To St. Cloud,&#8217;&#8221; People Magazine wrote, &#8220;she has already earned herself a spot among country&#8217;s upper echelon of contemporary composers.&#8221; Inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in October 2014 by singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell, who called her &#8220;both a songwriter and a poet (who) sings as beautifully as she writes,&#8221; and said her song &#8220;The Matador&#8221;, &#8220;moved me so greatly, I cried from the soles of my feet&#8221;, Peters has accumulated accolades as a songwriter for artists as diverse as Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, The Neville Brothers, Patty Loveless, George Strait, Bryan Adams and Faith Hill. Her 2015 album, &#8216;Blackbirds&#8217;, debuted at #1 on the UK Country chart and in the top 40 UK pop chart, and was awarded International Album of the Year and Song of the Year. In 2015, The Telegraph named her one of the greatest 60 female singer-songwriters of all time. www.gretchenpeters.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Ticket Details General Sale: Wednesday 4 April. 10am Online / 12noon Ticket Office Although still in his 20s, Jerron &#8220;Blind Boy&#8221; Paxton has earned a reputation for transporting audiences back to the 1920&#8217;s and making them wish they could stay there for good. Blind Boy Paxton may be one of the greatest multi-instrumentalists that you have not heard of. Yet. And time is getting short, fast. This young musician sings and plays banjo, guitar, piano, fiddle, harmonica, Cajun accordion, and the bones (percussion). Paxton has an eerie ability to transform traditional jazz, blues, folk, and country into the here and now, and make it real. In addition, he mesmerizes audiences with his humor and storytelling. He&#8217;s a world-class talent and a uniquely colorful character that has been on the cover of Living Blues Magazine and the Village Voice, and has been interviewed on FOX News. Paxton&#8217;s sound is influenced by the likes of Fats Waller and &#8220;Blind&#8221; Lemon Jefferson. According to Will Friedwald in the Wall Street Journal, Paxton is &#8220;virtually the only music-maker of his generation-playing guitar, banjo, piano and violin, among other implements-to fully assimilate the blues idiom of the 1920s and &#8217;30s.&#8221; www.blindboypaxton.net | Facebook | ]]>

£16.40


&#8220;Live at the Marquee&#8221; Tour 2017 The Iconic Debut Album performed with an 8 Piece Band for the first time ever! One of the UK&#8217;s finest Rhythm &amp; Blues Bands, Nine below Zero, formed in 1979 and named themselves after the famous Sonny Boy Williamson song. In 1980 they signed to A&amp;M Records and released the seminal &#8220;Live at the Marquee&#8221; album. By the end of that year they had moved from selling out the Marquee to selling out the Hammersmith Odeon. In 1981 their first studio album &#8220;Don&#8217;t point your finger&#8221; was released and the band play alongside The Kinks &amp; The Who. They also make appearances on the Old Grey Whistle Test and the South Bank show. In 1982 they appeared on &#8220;The Young Ones&#8221; with the track &#8220;Eleven + Eleven&#8221; before releasing arguably their finest album &#8220;Third Degree&#8221; which features such tracks as &#8220;Wipe away your Kiss&#8221; &amp; &#8220;You can&#8217;t say yes and you can&#8217;t say no&#8221;. The album&#8217;s iconic image was taken by none other than David Bailey. In 1983 Dennis Greaves left to form The Truth and it is not until 1990 when Nine Below Zero got back together for a sell out 10th Anniversary Concert at the Town &amp; Country Club. Since then the band have played alongside Chuck Berry, Brian May, Eric Clapton, Ray Davies, Bruce Willis, Jools Holland &amp; Glenn Tilbrook. ninebelowzero.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Legendary artist and activist and 2017 R&amp;R Hall of Fame inductee, Joan Baez, has announced an extensive 2018 tour in conjunction with the release of &#8216;Whistle Down The Wind&#8217; her first studio album since 2008’s Day After Tomorrow. RollingStone: Joan Baez Talks &#8216;New Way of Expressing Myself&#8217; on First LP in a Decade Speaking of the tour, which will begin on March 2 in Stockholm, Baez says “While 2018 will be my last year of formal extended touring, I’m looking forward to being on the road with a beautiful new album about which I am truly proud. I welcome the opportunity to share this new music as well as longtime favorites with my audiences around the world.” The new as-yet-untitled album was produced by Joe Henry and will be released worldwide in late February 2018. Baez’s career has spanned over 50 years during which she unselfconsciously introduced Bob Dylan to the world in 1963, marched on the front lines of the Civil Rights movement with Martin Luther King, inspired Vaclav Havel to fight for a Czech Republic, and continues to this day to stand passionately on behalf of causes she embraces. She is the recipient of many honors including the Recording Academy&#8217;s Lifetime Achievement Award and Amnesty International’s Ambassador of Conscience award. www.joanbaez.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Symphony No.4 was written in the period following his misguided marriage to the fanatical Antonina Milyukova.

The tour celebrates 30 years in the industry, including number 1&#8217;s and hit singles from his many albums as both a solo artist and with Wet Wet Wet. How special is it that we have a singer songwriter that has a career that spans decades, oh and lets not forget he sang LOVE IS ALL AROUND, a little attempt at sarcasm creeping in there, which stayed at the top of the charts and gave him the longest stay at number 1 for a British artist &#8211; what a great accolade to have along with dozens of gold and platinum selling records from all over the world, which sit in a cupboard held open by his Brit award&#8230; Marti Pellow is not a singer songwriter that is about yesterday or today, he strives to be about tomorrow and that is why he has longevity in his career and continues to push himself; be it on a Broadway stage, writing a new musical, making new records, starring in the West End or touring &#8211; all of this ties together for him &#8211; and its all about the music. When asked about The Private Collection Tour, Marti said: &#8220;Playing live is about sharing a connection with your audience; be that with singing old songs, new songs, borrowed songs &#8211; I don&#8217;t care where the songs come from &#8211; its about having the best night out &#8211; pure n simple. I was just blown away by the amazing response from fans after we did our big concert tour earlier this year &#8211; and then exactly the same response after we did a couple of our Private Collection shows in a much more intimate setting &#8211; and I thought &#8211; if you all really loved those shows &#8211; then I want to come out and play these great songs and more for you. I want to hear my audience singing and laughing with me and walking away that night knowing me just that bit better.&#8221; After the success of his last Tour &#8211; Marti put together the new concert idea of The Private Collection show. He showcased it to sold-out evenings at The Stables in Wavendon and such was their success Marti decided to turn this show into a UK wide tour in 2018. The tour is not only the confirmed dates just released but also many more British Isles concerts and festivals yet to be announced.

It all started back in 1988, when Mark Archer cut his teeth with Rhythm Mode D then moving on to form Bizarre Inc. in 1989. Although, he didn&#8217;t stick around long with the band, Archer received massive critical acclaim &#8211; and a few chart placings &#8211; for his second project, Nexus 21. It was while Nexus 21 were dabbling with some of the harder Belgian sounds around at the time, that Network Records owner Neil Rushton suggested the formation of a second act, so that some of this hardcore dance could be unleashed&#8230;Altern 8 were born! &#8220;Altern 8 occupy a unique position in dance music history&#8230;&#8221; Moby, Los Angeles, 2016 Altern 8 were a joyous mix of some rather eclectic influences. It sounded so simple and fun and yet the music was deceptively complex. Altern 8 went interstellar with a bunch of hit singles and the album Full-On Mask Hysteria, which hit number 10 in the charts. For a while the unlikely lads from Stafford were jetting around the globe with the likes of Moby, as Altern 8 captured the imaginations of ravers everywhere. Eventually, the house lights came up on Altern 8 and Archer and Peat went their separate ways. Archer then emerged from the hardcore scene with Slo Moshun, an act he formed with Danny Taurus. Bells of New York became compilation mainstays and Archer&#8217;s prowess at the production desk once again came to the fore with this more refined take on electronic music. Archer then followed up Slo Moshun with solo projects Trackman, Xen Mantra and DJ Nex, which rooted our man right back to the underground that he loved so much, as he started to ply his trade as a DJ; something he started to enjoy just as much as making music. The man has been busy ever since. The past 30 years has seen Archer firmly established as a UK dance music legend. His book The Man Behind The Mask was released in 2016 with a host of famous contributors including Moby, the man Archer toured Brazil with back in the day. The book was a chance for Archer to let that famous dust mask drop, thus revealing the man beneath. The book was warmly received, described by one reviewer as one of the best autobiographies he&#8217;d read that year. Today, Archer can still be seen in that famous luminous mask as the resurrected Altern 8, although the name Mark Archer pulls crowds just as big, as seen in some massive performances at festivals such as Glastonbury, Bestival and EDC in Vegas amongst countless others. Archer is also a resident DJ at The Acid Experiment, Field Maneuvers Fesitval and Bangface. Bizarre Inc., Nexus 21, Altern 8, Trackman, Slo Moshun, Xen Mantra, DJ Nex… Mark Archer has been making and spinning, the finest dance music for an incredible 30 years. Now, that is something to CELEBR8! So, get your bookings in for the &#8216;Man Behind The Mask 30th Anniversary Tour&#8217;. In addition to the fantastic live Altern8 show, DJ Nex will also be stepping up to the turntables to rock a unique one off Nexus 21 DJ set, plus live support from Tokyo Acid Crew who present an exclusive AV performance exploring early techno, jackin&#8217; house and early rave vibes alongside former Fantazia resident and TRUOLDSKOOL host Mudfoot Blaps spinning a classic bleeps and breaks DJ set. ]]>

Brennen Leigh is an American songwriter, guitar player, mandolin player and singer whose to-the-point storytelling style has elevated her to cult icon status in Europe, Scandinavia, across the United States, South America and the United Kingdom. It&#8217;s easy to see why she&#8217;s caught the ear of greats like legendary Lubbock fiddler Tommy Hancock (widely regarded as the godfather of West Texas music), who was quoted as saying of Leigh&#8217;s work; &#8220;It&#8217;s great to hear music that affects you on an intellectual level as well as makes you want to dance&#8221;. Noel McKay is a songwriter who was raised in Lubbock, Texas and The Texas Hill Country. His songs have taken him across the United States and all over the world. In 1993 he was discovered by songwriting legend Guy Clark while performing his songs at a venue in Kerrville, Texas. These days Noel can be found playing his songs to packed houses of astute listeners both stateside and in Europe. He&#8217;s recently discovered the art of co-writing and has written songs with greats such as Guy Clark, Richard Dobson, David Olney, John Scott Sherrill, Shawn Camp and Brennen Leigh. Recently Leigh has become Noel McKay&#8217;s Songwriting and duet partner and their collaborations have garnered wide acclaim. When not on the road, Noel splits his time between Austin and Nashville.

Since then, Jack Smedley, Steven Blake, David Foley and Adam Brown&#8217;s powerful, entrancing instrumentals have been a main stage highlight of many of the world&#8217;s leading folk festivals &#8211; including Cambridge, Tønder, Winnipeg, Vancouver and HebCelt, amongst countless others across more than 20 countries.

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 ]]>

£30

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


Róisín Murphy is an odd one, never predictable, her twenty-year career from the outside could seem a little unfocused. &#8220;I happened upon this “job” quite by chance and I have always thought it was because of my wayward creativity it happened at all, so I&#8217;ll always put the madness first, the open-ness, because that&#8217;s how it all started.&#8221; When she walked up to Mark Brydon and uttered the line &#8220;Do you like my tight sweater? See how it fits my body,&#8221; a band was born. &#8220;I met Mark at a dirty basement party in Sheffield and I freaked him out a bit and turned him on bit, and I guess that`s the effect I’ve tried to have on people throughout the rest of my career.” Many years of blissful synergy followed that &#8220;chat up line&#8221; as Murphy &#8220;felt&#8221; her way through. So from 1995 until 2000 Moloko steadily became more and more established. The huge success of ‘Sing It Back’ brought them to much larger stages around the world, but it also put new pressures on the duo. They broke up romantically but managed to make one last record together, the beautiful and heart-broken ‘Statues’. Matthew Herbert then asked if Róisín would like to try working with him. ‘Around The House’ was absolutely one of my favourite records of the time so I was more than up for it, yet it took ages for me to finally agree and organise the start date because I was petrified of failure.” When they did start it all flowed well and they progressed through the writing of ‘Ruby Blue’ in a few months. Then it was onward again to EMI and a promised Pop record. &#8220;With ‘Overpowered’ I controlled everything. I brought the many people I needed together and held tight to guiding principles that I, myself, had designed. In short I was the boss, which I enjoyed greatly. But I didn&#8217;t become a Pop star and nobody knows exactly why.&#8221; Róisín and producer Eddie Stevens spent five weeks last winter holed up in Eddie’s studio,a session resulting in some thirty songs, eight of which were selected for‘Hairless Toys.’ Rich and sophisticated. Strong and defiant. A story within a story framed by a story. Love`s fascination conquers its disappointment. Its surprises and bruises make us who we are. What’s life without guilt anyway? No, it’s not Pop, but it raises one final question, “Will Murphy ever make a bad record?” www.roisinmurphyofficial.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£17.40 Concessions Available

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. ]]>

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.

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 When can I buy tickets?

Saturday 28th July, 2018. 2pm - 3pm

£10.90

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. If you’re connected to the North we want to start a conversation with you, wherever you land on the political spectrum, wherever in the world you find yourself 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 exciting artists including Bella Hardy, Sarah Hayes, Andrew McMillan and Kim Moore. We want you to be part of this project and share your ideas on what it means to be Northern, why we live here and why we stay here. Join the conversation and let us know what you think about the North, being Northern and being connected to this land. Your responses will be used to inspire this performance piece. All completed responses will be entered into a prize draw to win two tickets to the premiere performance of Backbone of our Land on 28th July at Sage Gateshead. Loading&#8230; ]]>

£19.60

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 ]]>

An otherworldly instrument with an affecting vibrato, it&#8217;s a voice that&#8217;s earned repeated comparisons to the great Roy Orbison, and even briefly had Williams, in his youth, consider a career in classical singing, before realizing his temperament was more Stratocaster than Stradivarius. www.marlonwilliams.co.nz | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

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 ]]>

£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).

<![CDATA[Wooden Shjips]]> Sage Two 0.00000000 0.00000000 Wooden Shjips, long-time leaders of the contemporary psychedelic movement, expand their sound with V.

£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 ]]>

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. ]]>

£13.10


A songwriter and singer. As a sophisticated musician, Agatha cannot ever be pigeonholed into any particular genre. Whether you hear her lyrical ballads or dynamic rock songs, her emotional involvement and power of expression sound unchangingly thrilling. All of the songs which she performs, whether they be her own tunes or a set of carefully selected covers, constitute a whole story about the people she has met, the world she has been living in and the feelings she has experienced. Her personal story always remains painfully true and sincere; without pretending to be anyone or anything else. Agatha&#8217;s personality is very distinctive, made of unique sensitivity and gentleness, which can only highlight her kind heart and crystal clear voice. On a regular basis, she sings her songs during theatrical and cabaret shows at one of the oldest and still active literary vaudeville theatres in the world, called &#8220;Piwnica Pod Baranami&#8221; (&#8220;The Cellar under the Rams&#8221;) which is located in Krakow, Poland. It is a legendary place with a unique community. Among the composers of the cabaret, you can encounter musicians such as Krzysztof Penderecki, Zbigniew Preisner or Zygmunt Konieczny; whose music are also part of Agatha&#8217;s repertoire. At present, Agatha is performing and collaborating with composer and pianist Tomasz Kmiecik &#8211; another great artist of &#8220;The Cellar under the Rams&#8221;. Three songs from her full-length album, namely: &#8220;Too Long I&#8217;ve Been Sleeping&#8221;, &#8220;All That Is Me&#8221;, &#8220;The Heart in My Hand&#8221; reached the top of The Alternative Charts of Radio Krakow, thanks to the listeners&#8217; votes. November 2007 saw the release of Agatha&#8217;s debut album, and her next album entitled &#8220;Don&#8217;t Let Them Eat You&#8221; was released in December 2013. www.agathamallow.com ]]>

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. Since then Roddy has been writing and preparing to go back on the road later this year. www.roddyframe.com | Twitter ]]>

£23.40


With their unique brand of progressive rock, Focus manifested themselves at the start of the &#8217;70s as the most successful and appreciated of all the Dutch pop-rock exports. Fronted by founding member Thijs Van Leer, and best known for their hits &#8220;Hocus Pocus&#8221;, &#8220;House of The King&#8221; and &#8220;Sylvia&#8221;, as well as critically acclaimed albums &#8216;Moving Waves&#8217;, &#8216;Focus 3&#8217; and &#8216;Hamburger Concerto&#8217;, the iconic Dutch music masters are back with their tenth album, which is guaranteed to please their legions of fans! 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.

Ticket Details General Sale: Friday 20 April. 10am Online / 12noon Ticket Office Scottish folk pioneers Lau return with their first new music since 2015&#8217;s &#8216;The Bell That Never Rang&#8217; (Album of The Year &#8211; The Herald, ***** The Guardian). Premiering at Edinburgh International Festival &#8211; at one of their now legendary self curated Lau-Land events. The new music was written in Shetland and highlights the continuation of Lau&#8217;s experimental approach to folk music with increasingly minimal arrangements in song form which include the themes of togetherness and forgiveness. 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 ]]>
