Sage Gateshead is Curious: Winter Cabaret
with Beccy Owen and Fatt Butcher
Celebrate the season at our Curious winter cabaret with a double bill of performances by highly acclaimed musician Beccy Owen and Birmingham’s ‘queen of disco’, Fatt Butcher.
Presented by Curious Arts and Sage Gateshead.
Beccy Owen is a queer, neurodiverse artist who lives in Whitley Bay. With piano-based songs overflowing with dynamism, lyrical intelligence, and each imbued with their own character, Beccy’s music has won high acclaim over the years in both the media and amongst her army of underground supporters.
Described by the NME as ‘a delinquent Carole King’ and by Music Week as ‘a fallen, aggrieved dark angel, and a very, very special talent’, Beccy has released six solo albums and had also fronted numerous bands, including electro-pop 4-piece Joy Atlas and chamber-pop 9-piece Sharks Took The Rest.
Owen’s music has been championed by BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Tom Robinson (BBC6 Music), Steve Lamacq (BBC6 Music) and Jo Whiley (BBC Radio 2).
Self-appointed queen of the sausage roll, intergalactic sex-pot, and non-binary icon in the making, Fatt Butcher is Birmingham’s queen of disco.
The illegitimate love child of Elton John and Pam St. Clements, Fatt’s work has been described as ‘Spine-tingling… an incredible vocal powerhouse’ (West End Best Friend), ‘full of wonders’ (The Times) and ‘the accelerating decline of humanity’ (Trolls of Twitter).
Fat positive, bringer of queer joy, incredibly attractive, yet very modest – Fatt is a host, vocalist, and cabaret performer.
Curious Arts is a Newcastle-Gateshead based not-for-profit organisation committed to developing and championing LGBTQIA+ arts, artists and audiences across the North East.
