Cumberland Arms
Newcastle Upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Martin Carthy: Solo set from one of the finest singing guitar-playing storytellers in the world. "I only sing songs that I really want to sing. I don't sing anything to please anyone in particular. I don't find a song in a songbook and think, 'This'll be a good on, this'll please that section of the audience, this'll get 'em going.' No, I only sing songs that, in one way or another, move me. And that doesn't mean to say they're all deadly serious songs, I mean move you emotionally in any way whether it be to laughter or to misery!
I don't like categories. Having said that I'm quite happy to call myself a folk singer. If someone asks me what I do for a living, that's what I answer. If they wanna laugh fine. But I feel a passion about what I do ..."

Me Lost Me: Me Lost Me is the solo electronic music project of artist/musician Jayne Dent. Using the voice and the body as her main instruments alongside the concertina and bodhran, she electronically manipulates and loops sounds to create a unique, folk-influenced experimental music. Nestled among atmospheric and powerful original compositions are arrangements of traditional folk songs, hymns and murder ballads; chosen for their haunting melodies and gripping storytelling.

Doors at seven. Music to begin by half seven. Let's have a good time but also get home reasonably.
Tickets are £10 adv (8 conc) and £12 (10) on the door.
If internet buying is not your thing, please message Cath Tyler or ring 01912150138.
