£38.20, £34.90

Suffix: Presented by Kennedy Street Enterprises


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

Since the release of her 2010 multi-platinum debut album Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor Caro Emerald has fashioned her own niche. Gorgeous and stylish, Caro blends retro jazz with sampling and modern pop to create her signature sound. Caro’s second album The Shocking Miss Emerald, released in May 2013, entered the Official UK Album Chart at No. 1 remaining in the chart for an entire year. With more than 2.5 million record sales, 40 million YouTube views, a host of awards, and a string of sold out tours and performances at festivals throughout Europe including Glastonbury and Isle of Wight, Caro has made her mark. In 2015 Caro performed at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, with the concert broadcast live on BBC Radio 2, after which she returned to London to play a sold out show at Kew The Music and at Proms In The Park in Hyde Park. Her tour in November and December 2015 attracted excellent reviews and satisfied fans. The Amsterdam Conservatory jazz-trained vocalist is an original pop star with the look of a Hollywood icon of yesteryear and a voice that oozes warmth and vitality. Her live performance is not to be missed – as The Daily Telegraph noted “Caro Emerald had everyone in the palm of her hand’’ and her “infectious sense of fun and vintage charm can be relied on to lift the spirits”.

A BBC New Generation Artist for 2015-2017, Laura received the Parliamentary Jazz Award for ‘Instrumentalist of the Year’ in 2015 and in the past has been shortlisted for a BASCA British Composer Award, received the Dankworth Prize for Jazz Composition and the Worshipful Company of Musician’s Young Jazz Musician of the Year award.

He is adept with a master’s voice in creating vast palettes of colours and exquisite tone in his music. Since releasing the album Slow Eastbound Train with his trio and string orchestra, he has developed an instantly recognisable voice. Released in February 2015, this sublimely beautiful album brought his international profile to new heights prompting extensive touring throughout Europe and Japan as well as a 26minute commission from the BBC Concert Orchestra which was performed at London Jazz Festival in 2016. In February 2017 he will release The Roc, the follow up album to Slow Eastbound Train building on the intuitive interplay of his trio, which features Daniel Herskedal (tuba, bass trumpet), Eyolf Dale (piano) and Gard Nilssen (drums). &#8220;Daniel Herskedal has established a reputation for radiant eloquence and flawless virtuosity… his broadening palette is becoming a very inviting one.&#8221; The Guardian &#8220;Norwegian tuba player Daniel Herskedal is nothing short of a miracle, which is mainly brought about by his perfect mastery of the instrument.&#8221; JAZZENZO danielherskedal.com Save with the Jazz Multibuy!

Friday 31st March, 2017. 9.45pm - 11.35pm

£12.50

Prefix: Gateshead International Jazz Festival


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

£15

Prefix: Gateshead International Jazz Festival


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

£5.50

Prefix: Gateshead International Jazz Festival


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

Prefix: Gateshead International Jazz Festival


For Misha Mengelberg, the forgetting has begun. He is waiting for a taxi he didn&#8217;t call to go to a performance that won&#8217;t take place. Composer/pianist and grand duke of jazz Misha Mengelberg (born 1935) has been submerged in the shadow of dementia, ending his life as a musician. At the London jazz club Vortex in 2013 he impressively says his goodbyes to the international stage. It&#8217;s also his last major performance with his band, the Instant Composers Pool Orchestra. The musicians find it hard to let him go, but Misha&#8217;s decline is constant, and he slowly fades away from their midst. A film about exceptional loyalty, dilemmas, respect and dedication. And about music, the music of Misha Mengelberg. &#8211; Cherry Duyns &#8220;It&#8217;s an Alzheimer film within a musical setting; a music film overshadowed by illness; a film about finiteness; and especially a film about impressive togetherness, and, I&#8217;ll say it, love.&#8221; Walter van de Kooi, De Groene Amsterdammer ]]>

Over the years, the ever-evolving orchestra has collaborated with many giants of the experimental music world. Their current line-up consists of ten of the most innovative musical voices from around the globe, including ICP co-founder Han Bennink &#8211; one of the most in demand drummers in Europe, saxophonists/clarinettists Michael Moore, Ab Baars and trombonist Wolter Wierbos. They are joined by Tobias Delius (clarinet, tenor sax), Ernst Glerum (double-bass). Thomas Heberer (cornet, trumpet), Tristan Honsinger (cello), Guus Janssen (piano, organ) and Mary Oliver (violin, viola) all of whom are highly active with bands across Europe and North America. Sadly co-founder Misha Mengelberg, who appeared along with Han Bennink at the 2006 Gateshead International Jazz Festival is no longer well enough to perform. The exact programme is always a surprise, as the band decides just a few minutes before the performance what they will be playing. From ragtime to swing, bop to free jazz, classical to carnival, the ICP Orchestra continues to be at the forefront of experimental music. Nothing else sounds quite like them and no two gigs are ever alike. &#8220;&#8230;The Instant Composers Pool Orchestra, from Amsterdam, &#8230;.they are scholars and physical comedians, critics and joy-spreaders.&#8221; New York Times icporchestra.com Jazz knows no borders, and Garibaldi Plop is a great example of European cooperation. Although the trio is based in Paris, pianist Roberto Negro is from Italy, and they played one of their first ever gigs right here on Tyneside. That was in January 2016, and they made such an impression that Jazz North East insisted they should appear in the festival. Their music moves seamlessly from almost chambers tranquility to stretches of furious energy, with the piano and Valentin Ceccaldi’s cello pushed to their technical limits, while drummer Sylvain Darrifourcq lays down a polyrhythmic framework that holds everything together.

Free but ticketed


An afternoon workshop consisting of talks and discussions that explore the thinking behind improvisation. Following from the workshop at Gateshead International Jazz Festival 2016, we continue our exploration, addressing and challenging the received view that improvisation in musical performance is a kind of ?instant composition?, having lower artistic status than that of composed works. Instead, alternative approaches to thinking about the topic will be presented, including those considering the aesthetic value of spontaneity and energised performance. The workshop will explore the concept of an ?aesthetics of imperfection? in which spontaneous process is valued over finished product, with reference to the performances of the group Garibaldi Plop, who will contribute to the discussion. While such an aesthetics is expressed most clearly in the work of improvising musicians, it is also necessary for creative performance while following a score. The concept thus deepens our capacity to understand and appreciate both improvised and composed music. Presented by Jazz North East &#8216;Improvisors&#8217; Workshop&#8217; and Durham University &#8216;Philosophy of Improvisation Series&#8217;. See Garibaldi Plop perform in concert supporting The Instant Composers Pool (ICP) Orchestra from Amsterdam on Saturday 1 April in Northern Rock Foundation Hall at 7pm. Book tickets here.

Richard Bona’s Mandekan Cubano Richard Bona is known as &#8220;The African Sting&#8221; and is a supremely gifted bassist with an exquisite voice like no other. He explores the alchemy of African rhythms in Cuba. Originally from Cameroon, Richard Bona arrived in New York in the mid 90s and wowed crowds with his unique sound and presence with some even hinting that was the second coming of Jaco Pastorius. His seemingly effortless voice, fierce skills on the bass, unique songwriting/arranging expertise and ability to learn just about any instrument simply from watching, position him as a rare African artist to have established an unscalable reputation on an international platform. He has toured the world with Pat Metheny and appeared as a guest on two of Bobby McFerrin’s albums, along with numerous notable collaborations. His latest project melds together a variety of roots music from Africa, South America and Cuba. Bona’s six-piece Cuban band includes two percussionists making this celebration ripple and soar. richard-bona.com &#8220;Imagine an artist with Jaco Pastorius’s virtuosity, George Benson’s vocal fluidity, Joao Gilberto’s sense of song and harmony, all mixed up with African culture.

His expansive style combines a breath-taking technique with a tirelessly inventive imagination, and adds his own individual response to the traditions of his native Cuba.

The group draw on their South African lineage – heroes like Zim Ngqawana and Bheki Mseleku – to bring their own slant to the American jazz lineage being reconfigured in Hutchings’ compositions themselves.

Wolf Eyes, like so many purveyors of musical pleasure (The Stooges, MC5, Funkadelic) hail from Michigan. They began in 1996 as a solo project of Nate Young, who was shortly after joined by John Olson and (TUSK 2015 star) Aaron Dilloway. The latter tired of touring, was replaced by Mike Connolly of Hair Police in 2005, until he then gave way to James Baljo on 2013. Wolf Eyes seem to have pulled the unlikely trick of making harsh noise popular (or as popular as it’ll get), even recording for Sub Pop and Jack White’s Third Man label and by now being old hands at high profile festival slots. www.wolfeyes.net | Facebook | Bandcamp ]]>

£21.80, £19.60


The celebrated star of worldwide hit comedy Scrubs and frontman of platinum selling Australian band Men at Work visits Sage Gateshead in 2017. Scottish-Australian Colin Hay is probably best known for his time with 1980&#8217;s band Men at Work &#8211; the platinum selling Australian band that topped worldwide charts in the 80&#8217;s with anthems like Down Under, Overkill, and Who Can It Be?. We have most recently been reminded of Hay&#8217;s outstanding talent from his many appearances in US comedy series Scrubs &#8211; which became a staple of evening television here in the UK and throughout the globe. Although he&#8217;s one of Australia&#8217;s best-known exports, Colin Hay was born in Kilwinning, Scotland, and to this day remains hugely popular in the country and the rest of the UK. Hay has released ten albums since founding own label Lazy Eye in 1992. Since 2003, Hay has rebuilt his name recognition. &#8220;I went from playing for 50 people a few years ago, to 500 and 1,000 seat venues. I&#8217;d like to speed it up a bit, cause I&#8217;m running out of life,&#8221; Hay quips in fine Scottish style, &#8220;but for the most part I&#8217;m happy to be on the road and still making music, and attracting ever increasing audiences.&#8221; His music, most notably an acoustic version of the Men at Work hit Overkill, as well as more recent works such as Waiting for My Real Life to Begin and I Just Don&#8217;t Think I&#8217;ll Ever Get over You, has been featured on TV shows including Dawson&#8217;s Creek, Judging Amy, and Scrubs &#8211; converting a new generation of devout fans across the globe. His song I Just Don&#8217;t Think I&#8217;ll Ever Get Over You was included on the soundtrack of the Zach Braff film Garden State. Hay also appeared in an episode of the celebrated Larry Sanders Show, in Hay&#8217;s mind, a career highlight. His new album is due out in the Spring 2017 in the UK and Europe. www.colinhay.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Few bands would dare to involve the biggest, most respected names of their genre in their latest project, but The Shee, quietly, steadily building a reputation for innovative arrangements and immaculate live performances, have undoubtedly earned the respect of their peers. The Shee&#8217;s latest project is no run of the mill, sequential album, either, but a thoughtful, considered celebration of their first decade together. Continuum was conceived by the band with Celtic Connections, one of the most influential and important festivals in contemporary British folk music. The project has given each member of The Shee license to dream: to commission a British folk musician hero to write an original piece specifically with the band in mind. The musicians duly chosen were: Andy Cutting, Brian Finnegan, Karine Polwart, Martin Simpson, Kathryn Tickell and Chris Wood, and the pieces given their world premiere at Celtic Connections 2016.

Lillias received a CATS award for &#8216;best use of music and sound in a Scottish theatre production&#8217; and is an experienced tutor, lecturing regularly for the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

She sources traditional tunes from the Border region while her own compositions derive inspiration from a winningly magpie-minded range of subjects, both human and pastoral.

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

£13.10

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


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

Suffix: Featuring Dave Nachmanoff & Tim Renwick


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

£25.10


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

Suffix: A Kennedy Street & Byron Orme presentation.


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

Poems as Songs with Royal Northern Sinfonia 6pm &#8211; 6.45pm Notes from Underground: Conductor Hugh Brunt, Marcus Farnsworth (baritone), with the Voices of Hope choir Notes from Underground is a collaboration between award-winning poet Sean O&#8217;Brien and composer Agustín Fernández. This cycle of songs is inspired by poet W.H. Auden&#8217;s fascination with the North Pennines and in particular the lead mining industry there. The place held a near-religious and deeply ambiguous importance for Auden all his life. The song cycle will revisit this imaginative territory in a series of lyric dream-visions that descend into the subterranean world, where the narrator undergoes an ordeal in the hope of returning to daylight. Agustín Fernández&#8217;s work has been widely performed in the USA, including by Royal Northern Sinfornia. Sean O&#8217;Brien is one of the UK&#8217;s leading poets, winner of numerous awards including the T.S. Eliot Prize. First performed at the Durham Book Festival 2015. Les Roses: Conductor Hugh Brunt and Rowan Pierce (soprano) This song cycle is a collaboration between the composer Peter Wiegold and the poet Jo Shapcott. First composed in 1998, the poems were written by Jo Shapcott and are a response to the poems of Rainer Maria Rilke. The theme of the rose runs through much of Rilke&#8217;s poetry and writings; there is even a myth concerning the onset of his illness (which led to his death from leukaemia) which was that while gathering roses from his garden, he pricked his hand on a thorn and it failed to heal. The compositional process was much inspired by Shapcott&#8217;s poems, particularly the duality between the sensuous attraction and beauty of the rose, and its protective thorns. Les Roses premiered at Purcell Room, South Bank in 1998 with Lizzie Cragg and Helen Reid. This is its first orchestral performance. Collaborations between Musicians and Poets 7.30pm &#8211; 9pm Jackself: Jacob Polley and John Alder This event gives a musical dimension to Jacob Polley&#8217;s fourth book of poems Jackself (Picador, 2016) awarded the T.S. Eliot Prize in 2016. Jacob Polley and musician, John Alder, will perform part of their collaborative musical setting of the book. Jackself is an exploration of English folklore and of the innocence of childhood lost in the darker corners of Reiver country. The Nine of Diamonds: MacGillivray MacGillivray is the Highland name of writer and artist K M Norrie. MacGillivray&#8217;s second collection of poems The Nine of Diamonds: Surroial Mordantless (Bloodaxe, 2016) was written during a Creative Scotland Artist Residency at Sabhal Mor Ostaig, Isle of Skye. She will be reading poems from her new collection, projecting a short Gaelic fantasy film made on the Isle of Skye and performing songs in Gaelic on electric autoharp and acapella. MacGillivray is one of the first nominees for the New Scottish Performer of the Year Award, 2017. Margaret&#8217;s Moon: Jackie Kay and Kathryn Tickell This is the premiere of the first collaboration between Scotland&#8217;s National Poet Jackie Kay and renowned folk musician Kathryn Tickell. The collaboration is based on poems from poet and writer Jackie Kay&#8217;s new collection, Bantam (Picador, 2017). Bantam is a collection of work about Kay&#8217;s three generations of family in a book that crosses many different borders. ]]>

£13.10 (Concessions Available) Family Ticket £32.70

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


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

<![CDATA[The Rifles (Acoustic) plus Guests]]> Sage Two 0.00000000 0.00000000

£16.40

Prefix: Eastside present


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

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

£15.80


The creator of a unique and fascinating sound, the Poly-Rythmo is one of Africa’s biggest orchestras, for whom the term polyrhythm is not used in vain. The author of hundreds of recordings, they are one of the continent’s most prolific and after five decades, they are also the oldest active African orchestra. The Orchestre used influences originating from traditional Beninese music, American soul and funk, Nigerian afrobeat, Congolese rumba, Ghanaian high-life, French pop and Afro-Cuban rhythms and combined them with lyrics that broach subjects such as the evolution of Beninese society and its ills, as well as the complexities of love. Despite strong competition from the other formations of the fertile Beninese music scene, the Poly-Rythmo rapidly rose to the top of the modern African orchestras. From 1969 to the mid-1980’s, the orchestra published hundreds of EPs and dozens of albums. Their new album was finished in June 2016 and opens a new chapter in the history of the Poly-Rythmo. These ten songs feature compositions by Vincent Ahehehinnou, and also by historic members Loko Pierre and Gustave Bentho. The band went back to the Satel Studio, one of the most legendary studios of the African continent to put down the record. It is where the history of the band was written, when the Poly-Rythmo invented afrobeat at the same time as Fela Kuti who they often played with in Lagos and Cotonou. An instant Afrobeat classic, Madjafalao (be careful) sets the tone of this generous record. The musicians of the Poly-Rythmo eloquently express the diversity of their talents. Remarkable percussion, striking brass formation and a glorious chorus underline the supple vocals of Vincent Ahehehinnou who embodies this richly passionate album. ]]>

£19.60


Record breakers, chart toppers and country crossover stars Ward Thomas are returning to Gateshead! 22 year old twins Catherine and Lizzy made history with their stunning major label debut when it reached the top spot in the U.K. Album charts, by becoming the first ever UK country act to achieve the feat. On top of that extraordinary achievement, the album stayed in the top five for three weeks: a rare accomplishment. Written in Nashville in 2014, Cartwheels, &#8220;the devastating title track&#8221; (Sunday Times , Culture), was the song that kick started the entire writing process for the album. Reflecting on experiences of young women (and men!) everywhere, it tells the sad tale of someone who refuses to accept that a relationship is over. The heartbreaking story is brought to life by the sister’s stripped back vocals and beguiling harmonies. www.wardthomasmusic.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£19.10

General Info: Please note change of date - now Tuesday 30 May.


That Thea Gilmore’s latest album is as ethereal as it is thought-provoking, as bewitching as it is bold, will come as no surprise to her army of admirers. Since releasing her debut as a teenager nearly 20 years ago, the Oxfordshire-raised, Cheshire-based singer and songwriter has gained global acclaim for making music not only of extraordinary beauty, but of rare honesty and insight. What will surprise fans is how The Counterweight sounds. Fifteen albums in, Thea has all but abandoned her trusty acoustic guitar in favour of an iPad and a piano. The change forced her out of her comfort zone in to exploring new methods of composing as well as new ways of recording. The iPad she had used only sparingly before. The piano, she claims, she can’t play. While, sonically, The Counterweight marks a fresh start, its outward-looking themes &#8211; the shifting political landscape, our absorption in technology, America’s gun culture and the search for hope in times of trouble included. On the day Johnny Gets A Gun was recorded, the MP Jo Cox was shot. The Counterweight’s stately, spine-tingling closer The War includes several direct references to the late Labour MP in a call-to-arms for change. Despite its hefty themes, The Counterweight is as catchy as it is current, delving in to disco and pure pop and boasting glorious strings, intriguing samples, shimmering soundscapes and pretty piano. Where it might have been mournful, it’s often airy and optimistic. Where it does delve in to darkness, it also glimpses light. For Thea, music still has the power to incite change. www.theagilmore.net | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

After their worldwide hugely successful 3-D concert tours, the Electro pioneers Kraftwerk return to the UK in June 2017 for a special eleven-date run of their critically acclaimed live show. Bringing together music and performance art, Kraftwerk 3-D concerts are a true &#8220;Gesamtkunstwerk &#8211; a total work of art.&#8221; The multi-media project Kraftwerk was started in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider. They set up their electronic Kling Klang Studio in Düsseldorf, Germany, where they conceived and produced all Kraftwerk albums. By the mid 1970&#8217;s Kraftwerk had achieved international recognition for their revolutionary electronic sound scapes&#8217; and their musical experimentation with robotics and other technical innovations. With their visions of the future, Kraftwerk created the soundtrack for the digital age of the 21st century. Their compositions, using innovative techniques, synthetic voices and computerised rhythms, have had a major international influence across an entire range of music genres: from Electro to Hip Hop, from Techno to SynthPop. In their live performances, Kraftwerk &#8211; Ralf Hütter, Henning Schmitz, Fritz Hilpert, Falk Grieffenhagen &#8211; illustrate their belief in the respective contributions of both man and machine. Having received numerous of accolades over the years, Ralf Hütter and his former partner were honoured with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2014. Starting with the retrospective of their Catalogue at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2012, in recent years Kraftwerk have returned full circle back to their origins within the Düsseldorf art scene of the late Sixties. The 3-D concert series at MoMA was followed by further presentations at Tate Modern Turbine Hall (London), Akasaka Blitz (Tokyo) Opera House (Sydney), Walt Disney Concert Hall (Los Angeles), Fondation Louis Vuitton (Paris) and Neue National Galerie (Berlin).

The Mavericks were founded more than 25 years ago by Malo and Deakin as a standout alternative band in a Miami rock scene dominated by hair metal and punk. Improbably, they were noticed by super-producer Tony Brown in Nashville, and when they got signed to innovative MCA Records, they upended expectations in country music. Their blend of Cuban grooves and Bakersfield-inspired twang netted them several CMA and ACM Awards plus a Grammy in 1995. They charted numerous singles and albums while earning accolades as one of the finest live bands in the business. There was some time off and re-jiggering of personnel, but they came back strong with 2013’s In Time and 2015&#8217;s Mono, albums that provided abundant material for a refreshed and unmatched stage show. &#8220;We&#8217;ve traveled a lot in the last four years. And we’ve come back from a hiatus of nine years to find a brand new purpose &#8211; not just to go out and play for tickets and do the oldies,” says Eddie Perez. “Not many bands get to come back from that long to have another moment like this. So I believe it to be quite special.” www.themavericksband.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

The seventh solo record from Mercury-nominated and Worldwide FM Lifetime Achievement Award winner Carleen Anderson is her best and bravest yet.

Her highly original compositions jostle and blends stylings of jazz, soul, gospel, opera and chamber music delivered in Anderson&#8217;s unique voice that plays with space and draws the ear to listen. Her numerous accolades are a testament to this most recent album showcasing an artist at the height of her creative powers to perform an unforgettable LIVE experience. “You have to see Carleen Anderson at least three times in your life. I’d hang around all day just to listen to her sound check.” Amy Winehouse. Launched by the 2016 EFG London Jazz Festival, this soundtrack album is one-third of a multi-genre narrative that traces the life of Anderson’s paternal Grandparents who raised her from infancy and their impact on her son’s current life in Bristol. After being recruited by Virgin Records for a solo recording career, her first album in 1994, True Spirit, had three chart topping tracks, Mama Said, Let it Last and Nervous Breakdown. Her second album in 1998, Blessed Burden, co-produced with Paul Weller, also had several hits, one famously being a cover of Paul McCartney’s Maybe I’m Amazed.

Joining the celebrations around Bella Union&#8217;s 20th anniversary come a relatively recent signing to the label with a glorious history of their own. For this very special evening, Mercury Rev will be joined on stage by Simon Raymonde and by Royal Northern Sinfonia for a magical and intimate orchestral performance of music from across their catalogue. The band&#8217;s eighth studio album &#8216;The Light In You&#8217; was released by Bella Union in the Autumn of 2015, and although the band&#8217;s ability to deliver majestic and intensely personal sweeps of sound has never faltered, it marked a return to critical prominence for a band who routinely adorned &#8216;best of&#8217; lists with previous landmarks like &#8216;See You On The Other Side&#8217;, &#8216;Deserter&#8217;s Songs&#8217; and &#8216;All Is Dream&#8217;. Around the same time as the album was released, the band were invited by the Incubate Festival in Tilburg Holland to perform with the Tilburg Conservatorium Orchestra. For these three exclusive UK dates, the band will be joined by *Royal Northern Sinfoni*a, Orchestra of the Sage Gateshead. Royal Northern Sinfonia have previously toured and recorded with fellow Bella Union artists John Grant and Lanterns on the Lake. Expect rare and first time song performances along with selections from the legendary albums &#8216;Deserter&#8217;s Songs&#8217; and &#8216;All Is Dream&#8217; all delivered with the Rev&#8217;s trademark widescreen arrangements and their iconic flair for the modern fairytale. www.mercuryrev.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

The Spooky Men&#8217;s Chorale are the gift that keeps on giving&#8230;as thunderous as a herd of wildebeest, as sly as a wagonload of Spike Milligans and as sonorous as a cloister of monks. The manchoir emerged blinking-eyed from the Blue Mountains of NSW fifteen years ago and armed with no more than their impressively cavernous vocal chords, a nice line in deadpan, improbable facial hair and an ill-matched set of hats, have been gleefully wooing audiences throughout Australia, NZ and the UK ever since. Renowned for a combination of Visigothic bravado, absurdist humour and eye-moistening tenderness, the Spookies, in middle age, are more masters of their territory than ever before, with five critically-acclaimed albums under their belt. For their 2017 UK tour, they will revisit their much loved b(l)ack-catalogue, forays into immense Georgian anthems, tender arrangements of traditional and contemporary classics, their own uniquely entertaining songs and choreography. Their last UK tour saw a large number of sell-out concerts at major venues and a whole raft of ecstatic festival audience reactions. You must see them. Really, you must. &#8220;Inspired &#8211; and a triumph of choreography! Catch them on the road &#8211; a fantastic night out is guaranteed!&#8221; Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2 &#8220;High camp, epic folly &#8211; probably the best programming choice of the entire summer festival circuit.&#8221; The Irish Times &#8220;Highly theatrical, they veer from weird to touching and back again.

For the first year ever we are introducing more flexible class choices, so if you want to be in two bands – you can! (and if you would like to learn two instruments, you can!). On top of this there are some ‘options’ classes where you decide during the week which session you’d like to go to (these change each year but may include clog dancing, chorus songs, rapper dance). “It is a brilliant opportunity to play and learn new tunes and meet new people.” Thanks to a Heritage Lottery Fund grant, ‘Pass it On – The Tradition in Your Hands’ we are able to offer new activities.

Singer. Songwriter. Composer. Pianist. Author. Neil Sedaka’s impressive sixty year career ranges from being one of the first teen pop sensations of the 50’s, a successful songwriter for himself and other artists in the 60’s, a superstar in the 70’s, remaining a constant force in writing and performing presently. Neil catapulted to stardom after Connie Francis recorded Stupid Cupid and she then went on to sing the theme tune Neil and Howard had written for the 1960 MGM classic Where The Boys Are. Neil signed to RCA as a writer and performer of his own material and was soon having hits with Oh Carol!, The Diary, Stairway to Heaven, Calendar Girl, Little Devil, Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen, Next Door to An Angel, and Breaking Up is Hard to Do. During the British Invasion in America, Neil retreated to the UK where he found creative and commercial success with the hits Solitaire, Laughter in the Rain, and Love Will Keep Us Together. With these songs and the influence of Elton John, Neil would re-emerge and remain a global sensation. www.neilsedaka.com | Facebook ]]>

Exposed to the music industry from an early age, Dweezil Zappa developed a strong affinity for playing the guitar and producing music. Able to learn directly from world-class guitarists such as Steve Vai and Eddie Van Halen, Dweezil quickly developed into a musical star in his own right, releasing his first single (produced by Eddie Van Halen) at the age of 12. Since 2006, Dweezil put his own original music on hold, assembled a virtuoso band of musicians and devoted himself to performing the music of Frank Zappa extensively at venues across the world, the only official act to do so since his father’s death in 1993. In 2009, they were awarded a GRAMMY Award for best rock instrumental performance for their version of Peaches en Regalia. They were nominated in the same category in 2010 for their performance of The Deathless Horsie.

Fifteen years ago, Jolie Holland and Samantha Parton &#8211; two founders of the wildly popular group The Be Good Tanyas &#8211; first joined forces. Now they come together once again, with a worldwide touring schedule and new studio album coming in 2017. Their new project, as always, is a page from the big book of North Americana and outsider folk. Holland grew up in Texas, and by her teens was performing as a traveling musician. In the late &#8217;90s, she called San Francisco home before making her way to Canada where she co-founded the Tanyas with Vancouver singer-songwriter Samantha Parton. Parton had spent her post-high school years traveling with her guitar, and drawing strong musical inspiration from visits to the southern US; she spent time living in New Orleans, Holland&#8217;s ancestral home. After contributing to the Tanyas&#8217; acclaimed Blue Horse LP, Holland moved back to San Francisco while Parton continued to tour and record with the group until a serious car accident took her off the road in 2012. With this new creative incarnation, expect to hear newly written originals, fresh arrangements of The Be Good Tanyas material, and songs from their individual catalogs. ]]>

The Musical Box, internationally acclaimed for its historical re-enactment of early Genesis&#8217; works, is coming to the UK to perform The Black Show a re-imagining of their performance of Selling England By The Pound, featuring classic songs from all of the early albums. The emblematic 1974 show, originally only ever seen in America, allowed Genesis and Peter Gabriel to attain rockstar status, enjoying to this day a cult following from nostalgic and young music lovers alike. With Peter Gabriel&#8217;s famous theatrics and Genesis&#8217; unique musicianship, the band&#8217;s artistry would produce some of the most iconic images and sounds of the progressive rock era, such as the mythic, 23 minutes long Supper&#8217;s Ready, considered to be one of the most intense live music experiences ever created. Exclusively licensed by Peter Gabriel and Genesis, The Musical Box has performed for more than a million spectators worldwide in some of the most prestigious venues such as the London Royal Albert Hall, and had the privilege of receiving Phil Collins and Steve Hackett from Genesis as performing guests. With its quest for authenticity, The Musical Box is often cited as the best interpretation group in the world, proving the relevance of performing contemporary classics. Take a little trip back in time&#8230; &#8220;The Musical Box recreated, very accurately I must say, what Genesis was doing. I saw them in Bristol with my children so they could see what their father did back then.&#8221; Peter Gabriel &#8220;I cannot imagine that you could have a better tribute for any act. They not only manage to sound, but look virtualy identical. It seems as though nothing is too difficult for them.&#8221; Steve Hackett &#8220;It was better than the real thing actually. It was great, that was fantastic.&#8221; Mike Rutherford &#8220;The guy who does Peter Gabriel is brilliant.&#8221; Tony Banks &#8220;They&#8217;re not a tribute band, they have taken a period and are faithfully reproducing it in the same way that someone would do a theatrical production.&#8221; Phil Collins ]]>

<![CDATA[The Blues Band]]> Sage Two 0.00000000 0.00000000

£25.60


What does a great, lively musical tradition demand? Discipline, devotion, passion and love. Whether it’s Beethoven or B. B. King, Howlin’ Wolf or Handel, it all sounds better with a huge helping of skill, virtuosity and feeling. So when it comes to the Blues, aficionados of the genre can relax, because with The Blues Band, their music’s in good hands. Formed in 1979 by five seasoned musicians, The Blues Band are celebrating 38 glorious years as Britain and Europe’s leading exponents of one of the greatest musical traditions of all time. It began back then with a phone call by Paul Jones, actor, singer, musician and radio presenter, no stranger to the pop charts throughout the 1960s as front man for the hugely successful Manfred Mann. His fellow Manfred Tom McGuinness shared the same love of the music &#8211; he’d started out with Eric Clapton in the Roosters. And they knew the right people to make their idea for a band ‘just to play the blues’ work; they brought in legendary slide guitar man and singer Dave Kelly, who brought along a talented fellow musician, bassist Gary Fletcher. With the addition of Tom’s chart-topping partner from McGuinness Flint, drummer Hughie Flint, (ex-John Mayall’s Blues Breakers), that first line-up stormed the post-punk music scene, and contrary to their expectations, they soon left the pub scene behind for an international career playing the music they loved. After two and a half years, Hughie Flint left due to the pressures of touring. His place was admirably filled by another fine drummer, Rob Townsend, a member of one of Britain’s most eclectic, legendary outfits, Family. The rest, as the saying goes, is history. But what history. TV, films, a stadium tour with Dire Straits, over 20 albums, within a few years the Blues Band’s deep, well-tended roots had brought them the status of lasting legends. From Greece to Finland, Poland to Portugal, Italy to Denmark, when the Blues Band arrive, the fans turn out in their thousands. What’s on offer is always the same; a stunning menu of original compositions and blues classics, all delivered with passion, knowledge, love of the genre and entertaining showmanship. Other blues groups come and go, but it takes something special to achieve the iconic prestige enjoyed by The Blues Band. If you want to know what 38 years of skill and devotion sound like, here’s your chance &#8211; if you love the blues, it doesn’t get any better than The Blues Band. ]]>

While the lyrical themes echo those of 12 Stories, Clark pushed her vocal and musical boundaries on Big Day in a Small Town. Produced by Jay Joyce (Little Big Town) and influenced by stories of smalltown life, Clark’s love of classic country and Joyce’s affinity with edgier rock shine through. www.brandyclarkmusic.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£21.80


Colin Blunstone was born in Hatfield, Hertfordshire on the 24th June 1945. He went to school in St Albans where he was introduced to the other members of The Zombies. After attracting a large local following, the band were offered a recording contract by Decca Records which resulted in their first single, ‘She’s Not There’ becoming a world-wide hit. Three years on the road culminated in The Zombies final album the acclaimed ‘Odessey and Oracle’. After a short break, Colin’s solo career began in earnest with ‘One Year’ on Epic Records, from which the hit single ‘Say You Don’t’ Mind’ was taken. Two more albums on Epic followed, ‘Ennismore’ and ‘Journey’ which spawned the hits, ‘I Don’t Believe In Miracles’ and ‘How Can We Dare To Be Wrong’. This was followed by a spell living in California where he signed for Elton John’s label, Rocket Records and released three critically acclaimed albums, ‘Planes’, ‘Never Even thought’ and ‘Late Nights in Soho’. Returning to the UK, Colin supplied the vocals for Dave Stewart’s hit version of ‘What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted’ followed by further hits with Smokey Robinson’s ‘Tracks Of My Tears’ and The Alan Parson’s Project’s ‘Old And Wise’. These tracks were followed by three further albums, ‘Greatest Hits’, ‘Echo Bridge’ and ‘The Light Inside’, before Colin decided the time was right to play live again where he was joined by fellow Zombies founder member, Rod Argent. Together they have recorded three studio albums, ‘Out Of The Shadows’ and ‘As Far As I Can See’, a live double album and DVD, ‘Live At The Bloomsbury Theatre’ and a live album and DVD, ‘Odessey And Oracle {Revisited} 40th Anniversary’, of their sold-out concerts at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire in 2008. ‘The Ghost of You and Me’, was his first solo album in ten years, Colin wrote five new songs for it and renewed his partnership with producer Jon Sweet and arranger Chris Gunning. In February 2009, Colin Blunstone toured the UK with his own band bringing ‘The Ghost Of You And Me’ album to a live audience around the record’s release. In 2011, as lead singer with The Zombies, Colin recorded a new album called “Breathe Out, Breathe In”, the first Zombies studio album in 9 years. It got fantastic reviews in the UK and the US and the band toured extensively in both territories to promote it. Plus dates in Holland, Belgium, France, Canada, Israel and Greece. 2012 saw a new Colin Blunstone solo album release called ‘On The Air Tonight’ which again he toured to promote in the UK. The following years were spent mostly in the USA playing live and undertaking a crowd-funding campaign on Pledge Music before returning to the studio to record a new album released under license to Cherry Red label in the UK and Europe. The Zombies featuring Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent continue to tour in Japan, USA, The Philippines, Spain, France and Great Britain. Colin and his solo band took to the road again touring the UK in January 2016 and Holland in February, and in the UK again in April and October. There is even talk of a new album in 2017 with further live dates in Holland and the UK! www.colinblunstone.co.uk | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£21.80


The Remnant Kings was begun as Jon Boden&#8217;s project away from his high profile work with Bellowhead. But that&#8217;s not to say they are an afterthought. Where Bellowhead had been a logical collective extension of what the Spiers &amp; Boden duo were doing, The Remnant Kings were the essence of Jon Boden. After a hiatus of nearly five years due to Bellowhead commitments, Jon Boden &amp; The Remnant Kings return to touring in November 2017. Drawing principally on his 2009 Songs From The Floodplain album but with a new album scheduled to be recorded in 2017, the Remnant Kings feature Bellowhead&#8217;s Sam Sweeney and Paul Sartin, and also the talented Rob Harbron with the line-up extending to up to eight members for selected shows. Much of Jon&#8217;s RK&#8217;s work is inspired by post-apocalyptic literature, something represented at live gigs by the on-stage use of wax cylinders providing a distinctive counter to normal amplification. And as Jon explained in his BBC Radio 3 essay, the prospect of a post-industrial world without gas or oil sits in harmony with the relevance of folk music and social singing. Frequently Remnant Kings gigs are followed with another, unscripted show in a local pub or room where the band and friends sing unaccompanied. www.jonboden.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>
