£26.70


With an undeniable voice and an arsenal of powerful songs, Martha Wainwright is a beguiling performer and a refreshingly different force in music. Martha began building a buzz with her well-noted EPs, prior to her 2005 critically and commercially successful debut LP, Martha Wainwright. 2008, album I Know You&#8217;re Married But I&#8217;ve Got Feelings Too showed her great musical maturity and talent as a songwriter and her third album, San Fusils, Ni Souliers A Paris: Martha Wainwright&#8217;s Piaf Album was received with glowing reviews, leaving audiences stunned by Martha&#8217;s incredible range and talent. Her last album, Come Home To Mama, produced by Cibo Matto&#8217;s Yuka Honda, was heralded by Mojo Magazine as a &#8220;substantial and brilliantly sung career best.&#8221; Now, Goodnight City is poised to be her best record yet. This album returns to the rawness of her first release and includes songs by Martha, as well as songs written by notable artists including Beth Orton, Glen Hansard, her brother Rufus Wainwright, Michael Ondaatje, and Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs. Martha was born in New York City to folk legends Kate McGarrigle and Loudon Wainwright III. She is Rufus Wainwright&#8217;s sister and half-sister to Lucy Wainwright Roche. She has spent time on the silver screen playing characters in Martin Scorsese&#8217;s Aviator and more recently in the HBO special Olive Kitteridge alongside Frances McDormand. www.marthawainwright.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

FEATURING: The Young&#8217;uns Faustus Nancy Kerr Rachael McShane Greg Russell and Matthew Crampton. Join some of Britain&#8217;s leading folk musicians for a timely re-telling of Peter Bellamy&#8217;s legendary folk ballad opera The Transports. Here is a rare chance to see BBC Award Winners The Young&#8217;uns, Faustus, Nancy Kerr and members of Bellowhead together on stage in a new production of this outstanding work. Listen: BBC Radio 4 &#8211; Samira Ahmed meets David Eagle from The Young’uns to talk about The Transports.

At a time when migration makes headlines daily, this tale of past migration shows how little has changed in the global movement of desperate people. The accompanying project Parallel Lives charts &#8211; town by town &#8211; those who once left Britain with those who have recently arrived. Hear Mike Waterson singing &#8220;The Black and Bitter Night&#8221; from the original recording, which also featured a roster of the top traditional musicians of the day. ]]>

£30.64, £26.34


For well over a decade, The Transatlantic Sessions have been an annual closing highlight of Celtic Connections – before nowadays heading off on tour, to share its unique musical camaraderie around the UK and Ireland. The past year has seen the concept’s original instigators, Douglas Eadie and Mike Alexander – co-directors of the eponymous TV series –honoured with a Services to Broadcasting award from Hand Up For Trad, following on from their Good Tradition accolade at the 2010 Radio 2 Folk Awards. Alongside dobro maestro Jerry Douglas, who again shares musical direction with Shetland fiddle legend Aly Bain, Stateside artists include: John Paul White &#8211; formerly of multiple Grammy-winners The Civil Wars – whose new solo album Beulah stirs together a deliciously brooding blend of mournful folk balladry, swampy southern rock and dark acoustic pop. Texan-born Tift Merritt, a fellow GRAMMY honoree, was raised in the rich Americana heartland of North Carolina, the bedrock for a wide-ranging country/soul sound that’s been variously likened to Dusty Springfield and Lucinda Williams. Multi-instrumentalist and singer Dirk Powell is a welcome return visitor to ‘the ultimate backporch session’, one whose artistry encompasses virtually the entire US roots music spectrum. Singer/songwriter Jim Lauderdale has also covered plenty of bases in his three-decade career, including bluegrass, soul, R&amp;B and rock, but his 2016 album This Changes Everything marks a return to classic country, playing tribute to Texas’s legendary dancehall scene. From Scotland, the inimitable Eddi Reader joins in the song-sharing with a voice that’s been described as “nothing short of miraculous” (Spiral Earth); a revelatory instrument whether reinterpreting Burns and other folk material, or in the self-penned songs on her most recent release, 2014’s Vagabond. Anchoring the show with Douglas and Bain at the helm, the regular all-star house band also features John Doyle, Danny Thompson, Michael McGoldrick, Russ Barenberg, John McCusker, Donald Shaw and James Mackintosh. ]]>

Solo guitars like never before! PAOLO ANGELI &amp; DEREK GRIPPER A genre-defying double bill of daring contrast and brilliant beauty PAOLO ANGELI (Sardinia) Whatever you want to call it, nobody else is doing it quite like this. Paolo Angeli, the Sardinian guitar sorcerer, extracts beautiful multi-layered music from his uniquely prepared guitar; a hybrid orchestra of an instrument with multi-directional strings, hammers, pedals and propellers which he bows, strikes, plucks and strums. With this singular instrument he improvises and composes unclassifiable music, suspended between free jazz, minimal pop, post-folk and pre-everything else. He has collaborated with Pat Metheny, Fred Frith, Takumi Fukushima and many others; the diversity of sounds and inspiration always feeling coherent and cohesive at his fingertips. &#8220;The sound of a master musician&#8221; All About Jazz &#8220;The setup may be futuristic, but the music he creates is deeply human… full of humor and wit&#8221; NPR DEREK GRIPPER (South Africa) For over ten years guitarist Derek Gripper has produced some of South Africa&#8217;s most extraordinary musical works by fusing the country&#8217;s disparate creative traditions with styles throughout the world. His music draws on European classical traditions, avant-garde Brazilian works, Malian kora works, Cape Town&#8217;s folk styles, and even Indian classical music, all the while synthesizing them into a style uniquely his own. Widely lauded for his recent exploration of Mali&#8217;s greatest kora players, Toumani Diabaté and Ballaké Sissoko, alongside the music of guitarist Ali Farka Touré, Gripper creates a new form of classical guitar music out of some of Africa&#8217;s richest musical heritage. &#8220;Bringing African guitar into the classical mainstream.&#8221; Evening Standard &#8220;A staggering achievement&#8221; Songlines Multibuy Offer!

Comprising Debs Hanna (Vocals, Whistle, Piano Accordion) and Stu Hanna (Guitar, Mandola, Banjo) Megson have gained fame on the British folk scene, not only for their arresting &amp; intelligent songwriting, but for their exquisite musicianship and northern humour.

£21.50


Following the release of new album Familia, Sophie Ellis-Bextor has announced the release of new single Crystallise (out 28 October via EBGB’s/Red Essential) and a UK tour in 2017. Familia, released 2 September 2016, is Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s sixth studio album and follows her #4 charting and silver certified album Wanderlust, which marked a critically acclaimed change in musical direction for Sophie. Following suit with her last record, Familia was also co-written, produced and arranged by acclaimed singer-songwriter and good friend Ed Harcourt and was recorded in London with a close-knit group of musician friends. Discussing her new album as “the bolshier, more extrovert little sister to Wanderlust”, Familia was introduced by the Radio 2 A-List track Come With Us, which is an instant disco-pop anthem. Second single Crystallise offers a different glimpse into Familia and is a romantic track that opens with a soft tempo before building into an impactful string laden, emotive chorus. Sophie says; “Everyone has the potential to fall in love and Crystallise is about how easy it is to realise it if you let yourself. The ability to love has been there since the day you were born.” www.sophieellisbextor.net | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

Kevin Burke (Ireland) Christian Lemaître (Brittany) Charlie McKerron (Scotland) Nicolas Quemener (Brittany) Called &#8216;three of the finest folk violinists anywhere&#8217; by The Washington Post, Celtic Fiddle Festival celebrates the violin in all its globe-trotting variations. Fiddlers Kevin Burke (Ireland), Christian Lemaître (Brittany, France) and Capercaillie&#8217;s own Charlie McKerron (Scotland) showcase a fascinating juxtaposition of international and individual styles. &#8220;Three sensational fiddlers from three distinct Celtic traditions. Exhilarating fun!&#8221; Boston Herald Sold-out tours and standing ovations give testimony to the electricity and excitement generated by the group. Along with acclaimed guitarist Nicolas Quemener from Brittany, the quartet combines their talents, musical traditions, and spontaneous humour for an evening of dazzling energy and subtle grace. These traditional masters showcase their regional repertoires and together conjure an experience of breathtaking performances. &#8220;Three of the finest folk violinists anywhere. A mastery of regional fiddle styles with alternately soulful, dazzling and nuanced performances.&#8221; The Washington Post Kevin Burke is a world-renowned Irish fiddler whose formidable career includes the seminal Irish groups The Bothy Band and Patrick Street. Playing the fluid, highly-ornamented style of County Sligo, Kevin is a recipient of the NEA&#8217;s National Heritage Award. Christian Lemaître honed his remarkable skills playing the hypnotic Breton melodies at festou-noz (night dances) throughout Brittany, the Celtic region of France. He is a founding member of the group Kornog. Charlie McKerron, the newest member, is one of Scotland&#8217;s finest fiddle players, having touring the world with Capercaillie amongst his many other projects. &#8220;A treasurable meeting of minds, music and cultural roots, this collaboration between premier league fiddlers lays on a four-course feast of choice Celtic delicacies.&#8221; The Scotsman In concert each artist plays a solo set, showcasing their individual musical styles and traditions, followed by a collaborative set featuring all three fiddlers. Together, they play with such relentless precision and fire that the tunes transcend all cultural and geographical barriers, leaving the audience with a memorable musical experience. &#8220;&#8230;Among the world&#8217;s greatest Celtic fiddlers. Whether alone or á trois, they possess a breathtaking virtuosity.&#8221; Philadelphia Weekly Celtic Fiddle Festival was originally conceived as a unique touring project in 1992, with Burke, Lemaitre, and the great Scottish fiddler Johnny Cunningham. The group proved such a success that a live recording was released. That first album, simply titled Celtic Fiddle Festival (1993, Green Linnet), received glowing critical reviews and racked up impressive sales. Four albums and numerous international tours later, the ensemble is now one of the most popular on the Celtic circuit. &#8220;Their deliciously spicy, hot-blooded CD &#8216;Play On&#8217; is globe-trotting, sweetly melodic, and properly sassy.&#8221; Scott Alarik, The Boston Globe Their most recent album is Equinoxe on Burke&#8217;s independent label Loftus Music. Sadly, the world lost Cunningham with his unexpected passing in 2003. The Celtic Fiddle Festival&#8217;s live CD, Play On (2005, Green Linnet), was dedicated to Johnny. www.celticfiddlefestival.com | Facebook ]]>

£16.13


For almost as long as they&#8217;ve been married (26 years) Brett and Rennie have written songs together (Brett, music; Rennie, words). Their finished work is never fully one or the others, but lives in unseen space between them. They&#8217;ve been covered by Jeff Tweedy, Amanda Palmer, Cerys Matthews, Christy Moore and many others &#8211; and count Bruce Springsteen and Ringo Starr among their fans. After living and working in music for many years, they achieved almost-overnight fame when their song ‘Far from any road’ featured as the Theme to the hit TV show True Detective. Live, Brett (guitar/vocals) and Rennie (banjo/bass/vocals) are joined by drummer Jason Toth (worldwide) and multi-instrumentalist Alex MacMahon (USA). www.handsomefamily.com Plus Support Courtney Marie Andrews www.courtneymarieandrews.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

<![CDATA[The Grahams plus screening of 'Rattle The Hocks']]> Northern Rock Foundation Hall 0.00000000 0.00000000

£13.10


In 2015 The Grahams released Rattle The Hocks, the soundtrack to a short film The Grahams Rattle The Hocks. The Grahams (Alyssa Graham and Doug Graham) travelled the country by train in the summer of 2014 and arrived in Memphis with songs inspired by their adventures and experiences. Musician Cody Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars), who played with the duo, documented part of that journey, as well as the recording of the band&#8217;s new material. The film is a loose, but intimate look at The Grahams and is narrated by both Alyssa and Doug (the narration was written by Bryan McCann). Alyssa says, “There’s a special connection between American folk music and the railroad that has no parallel elsewhere in the world.” She talks about the band’s own goals in traveling by train: “We’re looking for the modern echo of older sounds.” The film is about the band, the rails and the land and towns they visited, but mostly it is about the music. &#8220;Alyssa has a great voice, crystal clear, full of fire and passion perfectly complimented by Doug on dobro and vocals.&#8221; The Irish Post “A dynamic Americana duo who’ve married their love of adventure with a desire to build on foundations laid by their musical predecessors.” Americana UK www.thegrahamsmusic.net | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

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

£17, £15


Ticket Details General Sale: Friday 28 October. 10am Online / 12noon Ticket Office After more than ten years playing together the band have decided that now is the right time to end, and see the upcoming dates as the perfect way to send off. Stornoway have released three studio albums, a surprise mini album and two EPs. Their most recent effort, 2015&#8217;s Bonxie, saw the band combine their two great passions, music and the environment, to create a record indebted to nature and specifically, birds. Produced by Gil Norton of Foo Fighters and Pixies fame, the record saw Stornoway take a step out of their comfort zone, creating something bold and inherently beautiful. The record was a success, entering the UK Charts inside the Top 20. The touring cycle saw the band play two, sold out shows at Oxford&#8217;s Sheldonian Theatre, five years after they were the first pop band to play the venue. Having initially formed in 2005, Stornoway have had an undoubtedly stellar career, full of landmark moments. In November 2009 they became the first unsigned band to appear on Later&#8230;With Jools Holland, performing alongside Sting, Jay &#8211; Z and Foo Fighters. They signed their record deal with taste-making indie label 4AD in Stornoway, also playing a landmark gig on their first visit to the town that gave them their name, in April 2010. &#8220;We have achieved far more as a band than we ever dared to dream back as students in a drafty east Oxford garage and we are immensely proud of the music we have created together. We are eternally grateful to all our wonderful fans and friends who have given us so much support throughout our career, and we look forward to celebrating the last 10 years with you on a (whale of a) farewell tour next spring.&#8221; www.stornoway.eu | Facebook | Twitter ]]>

£26.88, £24.73


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

Simon Green aka Bonobo is back with his sixth album – the masterful, magisterial Migration – is a record which cements his place in the very highest echelons of electronic music and beyond. By turns lush, manic, beautiful, melancholy, joyful, packed with both emotion and technical skill, this is perhaps his most ambitious attempt yet to capture the very textures of human existence in his work, as Green says of the broad dynamics on the album, &#8220;Life has highs, lows, loud and quiet moments, beautiful ones and ugly ones. Music is a reflection of life.&#8221; Bonobo’s last album, The North Borders, went Top 30 in the UK and was number 1 in the electronic charts in both the US and UK.

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

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

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

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).

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.

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.

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

A concert that charts a jazz journey from South and West Africa to the latin jazz of Cuba &#8211; and featuring three of today’s stellar international jazz performers. Richard Bona’s Mandekan Cubano Richard Bona is known as &#8220;The African Sting&#8221; and is a supremely gifted bassist with an exquisite voice like no other. He explores the alchemy of African rhythms in Cuba. Originally from Cameroon, Richard Bona arrived in New York in the mid 90s and wowed crowds with his unique sound and presence with some even hinting that was the second coming of Jaco Pastorius. His seemingly effortless voice, fierce skills on the bass, unique songwriting/arranging expertise and ability to learn just about any instrument simply from watching, position him as a rare African artist to have established an unscalable reputation on an international platform.

The group draw on their South African lineage – heroes like Zim Ngqawana and Bheki Mseleku – to bring their own slant to the American jazz lineage being reconfigured in Hutchings’ compositions themselves. Going beyond the jazz greats Hutchings cites, influences are drawn from plenty of other sources: Caribbean calypso, central African song structures and Southern African Nguni music. Shabaka has performed and recorded with Courtney Pine&#8217;s Jazz Warriors, Mulatu Astatke and the Heliocentrics, Polar Bear and Soweto Kinch and performed with many notable musicians including Jack DeJohnette, Charlie Haden’s Liberation Music Orchestra, Louis Moholo, Evan Parker, King Sunny Ade and Orlando Julius. &#8220;Pulsing, exploratory and vibrant.&#8221; The Guardian shabakaandtheancestors.bandcamp.com Save with the Jazz Multibuy!

£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. Shona was a recipient of the 2006 BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year, and more recently her beautifully haunting and evocative composition Tidal Island, supported by Creative Scotland, was recorded for BBC Radio Scotland&#8217;s Global Gathering. www.shonamooneymusic.com Rachel Newton Rachel is a founder member of The Shee, The Emily Portman Trio and The Furrow Collective and also writes and performs her own solo material, releasing albums The Shadow Side in 2012 and Changeling in 2014. Rachel recently started working with Scottish/Norwegian band Boreas, was one of the eight musicians to collaborate in The Elizabethan Session. As well as voice and harp, Rachel also plays fiddle and viola and works across a range of performance platforms including theatre and storytelling. &#8220;This is the sound of modern Scotland, as surely as draws on folklore and tradition, Newton&#8217;s singing and harp at the heart of a singular vision.&#8221; The Herald &#8220;Rachel Newton is well equipped to take centre stage in her own right and this second solo albumis a beauty…fascinating stuff&#8221;.

Voicebeat is a non-auditioned &#8216;natural voice&#8217; style choir (if you can talk, you can sing!) which explores the singing traditions of a wide range of musical genres and cultures, from folk traditions of the UK and beyond, through to rock, pop and jazz repertoire as well as original compositions. There&#8217;s an equal emphasis on achieving musical excellence, and using singing as a way of building and strengthening our social networks; Voicebeat is like a big &#8216;family&#8217; of people from all walks of life who sing together. It was one of the first choirs to be established when Sage Gateshead opened, and has been led by a range of popular MDs over the years, including Bex Mather, Beccy Owen, Mona Zeidan, and currently Dave Camlin.

£13.10

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


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

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

£25.10


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

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


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

£16.40

Prefix: Eastside present


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

£16.40


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. Directed by renowned folk guitarist Ian Stephenson, the group were founded by Kathryn Tickell, and have worked with some of the finest folk tutors in the country, and have played alongside Sting, Andy Sheppard, D.U.K and Thea Gilmore. Based at Sage Gateshead their repertoire includes traditional music and members&#8217; own compositions and has been heavily influenced by learning from well-respected players from around Europe and North America ]]>

The week is full of inspiration, repertoire building, sessions, songs, dancing, and friendships. The accommodation is Durham School halls of residence with our skilled and experienced pastoral staff onsite 24 hours a day. &#8220;I surprised myself by doing things I never thought I could through the help and support of the tutors.&#8221; Downloads Enrolment Pack FAQs There are two slots of workshops to choose from, both of which contain Instrumental Tuition and Band Tuition. 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. Participants will have the opportunity to explore more of the amazing stories and traditions behind the music and have taster sessions on traditional instruments. For the first time ever we are able to offer a dedicated class for Clog dancers, suitable for Beginners – Advanced clog dancers (please note clogs are available for hire, enquire for more information). “I improve more in this one week than I do in the rest of the year.” There is the opportunity to perform to your fellow students, to listen to the world class tutors in a tutors’ concert, a ceilidh and more. There is a session that runs late in to the evening, allowing you to play together informally.

Wed 11 Oct, 2017. 7.30pm

£50.70, £38.20, £24.50


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

He is such an expressive player; he is ingenious in his use of the guitar. You can listen to one of his songs and three or four minutes in, he has only used the top four strings and not even played a bass note yet, and when he does, it feels like an orchestra coming in. His clarity of playing is just amazing.&#8221; Jackson Browne www.martinsimpson.com | Facebook | Twitter ]]>
