Change of Billing

We are very sad to report that Sarah Savoy has broken her wrist and is unable to perform her set at SummerTyne Americana Festival. Sarah’s prognosis is good so she’ll be back in action in the months to come, but of course Sarah is very unhappy to have to miss her Summer dates in Europe.

In the meantime, in lighting speed, we have drafted in the brilliant Cajun Roosters led by prolific Cajun and zydeco stars Chris Hall and Hazel Scott with their international band who will join the John Lewis Trio for a rip-roaring night of dancefloor fun!

We very much hope you will hold on to your tickets despite the change of billing, however, should you require a refund, please call Box Office on 0191 443 4661.
