Northumbrian Minstrelsy Concert
Sun 26th June, 8pm @ Sage Gateshead, Sage 2
The Society of Antiquaries of Newcastle upon Tyne are hosting a concert to celebrate their work collecting and publishing North East folk music, not least the celebrated tome “Northumbrian Minstrelsy.” As an avid reader of dusty manuscripts I am hugely grateful to the Society for its invaluable work. I’m delighted to have this opportunity to support their concert and share a stage with such fantastic local musicians as Johnny Handle, Jez Lowe, Carolyn Robson, Andy May and The Border Directors.
