Kathryn Tickell's Saturday Social
Pioneering Northumbrian Piper and fiddle player Kathryn Tickell joins forces with her dad, poet and singer Mike Tickell and her brother Peter (Sting, Peatbog Fairies, Birdie and Afro-Celt Sound System) in this one-off concert – the first time they have performed as a trio for over 15 years. You can expect virtuosic musicianship, evocative soundscapes, reflections on a Northumbrian lockdown, clog dancing from special guest Heather Ferrier and all the warmth of a family gathering.
Plus special guest Holly Clarke (concourse ticket required)
Plus pre-concert performance by Holly Clarke
As well as the performance in Sage One we will also be offering free music on our Concourse before each show. If you would like to come along please make sure you book a table, where you will be able to sit back, relax and enjoy a drink while you listen.
Please note, there are a limited number of tables available, which must be booked at the same time as your ticket. For your safety, we will be running table service only – all of our usual café and bar areas will be closed.
For this concert, we’re delighted that Holly Clarke will be joining us for the pre-concert performance on our Concourse Stage.
Holly, a Cumbrian musician and singer, is a former Sage Gateshead Artist in Residence and Summer Studios alumnus. Her songs are steeped in the tradition of ballad singing and storytelling, exploring these old songs and finds new ways to perform their unique narratives.
A limited number of free tickets are available if you live in Gateshead and have never been to a concert before. Health & Social Care Workers can also benefit from free tickets on production of appropriate ID on the night. Please note both offers are only available by telephone on 0191 443 4661. £5 tickets are available for those unemployed. This offer is available online or by phone.
